IPL 2022: Lucknow Super Giants Predicted XI Against Gujarat Titans. LSG, led by KL Rahul, will face Gujarat Titans in their first match of the IPL 2022 season on Monday.
On Monday, the two new IPL teams, the LSG and the GT, will face off at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. LSG will be led by KL Rahul, while GT will be led by Hardik Pandya, as both teams look to start the season with a win. LSG could start with a lethal combination of KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock, while Manish Pandey and Deepak Hooda can provide much-needed support in the middle order. Andrew Tye and Avesh Khan can combine to form a lethal fast bowling combination that will trouble the GT batters.
Here is LSG predicted XI for their match against GT:
KL Rahul (Captain)
Former PBKS captain KL Rahul will look to get off to a good start as he prepares to lead a new team with new faces against the Hardik-led side.
Quinton de Kock:
Having previously opened for his previous franchise MI alongside Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan on separate occasions, De Kock will look to form a dangerous top-order partnership with the captain.
Lewis is regarded as one of the most lethal batters in the game. Lewis has played 21 IPL games so far, scoring 581 runs at a strike rate of 138.
Pandey has been a fixture in his previous franchises. His 154 IPL match experience could be very useful, and Rahul could look to him for advice in addition to his leadership qualities.
In the IPL mega auction in Bengaluru last month, LSG paid a whopping Rs 5.75 crore for hard-hitting batter Deepak Hooda. Deepak, who is known for his aggressive attitude, has a strike rate of 129.54 in IPL cricket.
After a successful stint as a Mumbai Indians player in previous seasons, all-rounder Krunal Pandya will look for a fresh start. In 84 IPL matches, he has scored 1,143 runs and taken 51 wickets.
Gowtham has yet to establish himself in IPL cricket. So far, he has played 24 matches, scoring 186 runs and taking 13 wickets.
A former Punjab Kings player, the young leg-spinner will be buoyed by his recent international debut.
Due to his clever variations and change in pace, Australia’s Tye has been one of the most sought-after bowlers. He was called in to replace an injured Mark Wood. Tye has taken 40 wickets in 27 IPL matches, with an economy of 8.46.
Rajpoot has appeared in 29 IPL games, taking 24 wickets at a strike rate of 33.92.
Avesh wowed everyone with some spectacular bowling performances for the Delhi Capitals over the last two seasons of the IPL. Rahul and his team will have high expectations of him for LSG.
