IPL 2023: GT vs LSG, Match Prediction and more details

Narendra Modi Stadium is set to host the GT vs LSG clash. GT currently has 14 points in 10 games while LSG has 11 points in 10 games.

Gujarat Titans are at the top of the Indian Premier League 2023 points table and will be looking to strengthen their position at the top as they enter their last 4 games of the league stage. The Hardik Pandya-led side is looking favourites at the moment to get a top-2 finish. In IPL 2022 GT finished first with 20 points while Rajasthan Royals finished second with 18 points. Lucknow Super Giants have 11 points in 10 games and will be delighted with the rain-affected match against Chennai Super Kings at home. LSG appeared to be on the losing side when the match was interrupted by rain and will be happy that they got away with a point. Here is all you need to know before the GT vs LSG match.

Gujarat Titans have been great with the ball in hand this season. GT has had a great time thanks to their star bowling line-up, including the likes of Mohammed Shami, Rashid Khan and Hardik Pandya. They have enjoyed success in recent games with Afghan spinner Noor Ahmad and veteran pacer Mohit Sharma coming into the side. Their Irish pacer Joshua Little will be flying home to participate in the ODI series against Bangladesh and is set to miss at least three of their last 4 games. Little could get replaced by Alzarri Joseph or Dasun Shanaka.

Lucknow Super Giants will look to get back to winning ways. LSG has only won 1 out of their last 4 games. Their batting department has faired poorly and will want to get better performances from them. Krunal Pandya became the captain for the first time in the last game and was dismissed for a golden duck last time. They will have to find a way to get Quinton de Kock in the team at the top of the order. Their overseas bowler Naveen-ul-Haq could make for the South African batter. The Afghan pacer and de Kock can be used as impact subs depending on whether they are batting or bowling.
