IPL: Match 30, Lucknow Super Giants v Gujarat Titans, Match Preview, Details, Pitch Report, Prediction

Lucknow Super Giants

We now move to the 30th game of this IPL. This clash is between the two newest teams of the IPL. Both the teams are among the top 4 of the points table at the moment. Hence, the eyes of both the teams will be to strengthen their position.


Lucknow Super Giants have won two out of three matches played on different pitches at their home ground. Against Delhi Capitals on a fast-paced red-soiled pitch, Mark Wood claimed five wickets, while against Sunrisers Hyderabad on a black-soiled surface, Krunal Pandya and Amit Mishra took three and two wickets, respectively.

Super Giants have a stronger spin department than Gujarat Titans, who rely heavily on Rashid Khan. They may prepare another slow turner despite Rashid taking four wickets in their previous match. Mark Wood’s availability, who missed the last game due to illness, may impact pitch preparation.

Titans defeated Super Giants twice last season, and experimented with Noor Ahmad, who bowled 2.2 overs in their loss to Rajasthan Royals, while Rahul Tewatia has yet to bowl this season.

The game is being played on pitch #6, which will introduce new dynamics. The previous games have witnessed varying scores, and the square is very dry. The curators are trying to manage this season before looking at long-term solutions. Although temperatures have come down lately, an afternoon game could still test the players.
