The Titans have won all 4 of their matches until now against the Super Giants since their first meeting back in 2022. In their previous meeting, the Titans defeated LSG by 56 runs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Shubman Gill won the Player of the Match award after he scored an unbeaten 94 off 51 balls with 2 fours and 7 sixes. The Titans scored 227 for 2 and then restricted LSG to 171 for 7.

The upcoming LSG vs GT prediction, however, is expected to be a close one since both teams are in decent form.

Lucknow Super Giants

The Super Giants began their campaign with a 20-run defeat at the hands of Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals. However, after winning back-to-back matches, LSG have found momentum. In their previous game, they beat the Royal Challengers Bengaluru by 28 runs at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

After putting up a decent score of 181 for 5 on the board, they restricted Faf du Plessis’ men to 153 in 19.4 overs. Mayank Yadav, yet again, was spectacular for them after he picked up 3 wickets for only 14 runs.

The LSG vs GT prediction will depend on how LSG and Mayank carry their momentum and beat GT for the first time.

Lucknow Super Giants Possible 11: Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Marcus Stoinis, Nicholas Pooran, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Yash Thakur, Naveen-ul-Haq, Mayank Yadav, Manimaran Siddharth

Gujarat Titans

The Titans need to be a circumspect as their campaign could go downhill very fast. They are yet to be at their very best and need some strong performances to break into the top 4. They will go into the game against LSG after losing to the Punjab Kings (PBKS) by 3 wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

After being asked to bat, the Titans set PBKS a target of 200. But Punjab romped home with a ball to spare on the back of Shashank Singh’s unbeaten 61 off 29 balls.

The outcome of the LSG vs GT prediction will depend on how the GT bowlers recover from the hammering against the Kings in the last outing.

Gujarat Titans Possible 11: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Azmatullah Omarzai, David Miller, Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Umesh Yadav, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, Darshan Nalkande

LSG vs GT Dream11 prediction

Our LSG vs GT Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, Nicholas Pooran
  • Batter(s): Kane Williamson, Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan
  • All-rounder(s): Marcus Stoinis
  • Bowler(s): Rashid Khan, Naveen-ul-Haq, Noor Ahmad, Mayank Yadav
  • Recommended captain: Shubman Gill
  • Recommended vice-captain: Nicholas Pooran

We have picked Shubman Gill as our captain simply because he has been the pick of the batters for the Titans in the tournament. In 4 games for GT, the youngster has scored 164 runs at an average of 54.66 and a strike-rate of 159.22. That he scored an unbeaten 89 against the Kings on Thursday should keep him in a positive frame of mind.

Nicholas Pooran has been destructive for the Super Giants and hence, we have picked him as our vice-captain. In 3 matches, the left-handed batter has scored 146 runs at an average of 146 and most importantly, a strike-rate of 175.9, which shows that he has been in great striking form.

Player of the Match prediction: Mayank Yadav
