Lucknow Supergiants and Gujarat Titans squared off in Match 4 of the ongoing IPL 2022 and it was the Gujarat Titans who toppled Lucknow Supergiants quite comprehensively by 5 wickets. Mohammad Shami starred with the ball and scalped three wickets before the Titans batters made valuable contributions at the death and held their nerves in a tricky run-chase.

Rahul Tewatia’s unbeaten 40 and Hardik Pandya’s 33 ensured that Deepak Hooda’s 55 and Ayush Badoni’s 54 went in vain.

Mohammed Shami (3/25) bowled a sizzling opening spell as he rocked the Titans’ top-order and reduce Lucknow to 20/3 in 3.3 overs. But Deepak Hooda (55 off 41) and Ayush Badoni (54 off 41) pulled the Lucknow side out of the woods with a fiery partnership. Hammering an 87-off 68-ball partnership, Deepak Hooda and Ayush Badoni smashed half-centuries to guide Lucknow past the 150-run mark.

In an edge-of-the-seat contest, Abhinav Manohar (15 off 7) and Rahul Tewatia (40 off 24) held their nerves to hand the Titans a winning start. Chasing a respectable 159, Rahul Tewatia and David Miller (30) rose to the occasion to guide Titans to a five-wicket win over Super Giants.

KL Rahul-led Lucknow Supergiants don’t have to ponder much ahead of their clash against Gujarat Titans. Lucknow Supergiants has the best net run rate this season and they are just one win away from almost finalizing a top-two finish in the league stage.

Avesh Khan is back in full rhythm, Mohsin Khan has been bowling with his tails up and the same goes for the batters who have been performing really well even if their skipper KL Rahul fails at times. The team looks in a great space and there’s no need for them to tinker with the eleven.

Gujarat Titans haven’t done anything wrong in their last two games but somehow they haven’t been able to finish off games. Hardik Pandya the skipper has been good but Hardik Pandya the batter hasn’t been at his best in the last two games. The skipper needs to put some money on his wicket and anchor the innings, especially in the middle overs as GT’s middle order lacks experience.

Pradeep Sangwan has been good in the three games he has featured so far. However, Yash Dayal was quite impressive for GT this season. He was among the wickets in almost every game and if he is fit, GT should bring him back for Pradeep Sangwan. Abhinav Manohar might return to the eleven for Sai Sudharsan who’s strike-rate is definitely on the lower side.
