LSG vs GT Today Match Prediction & Tips

Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Lucknow Super Giants will play Gujarat Titans in the 21st match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 7.

LSG did not get off to a great start as they lost to RR by 20 runs, however, they picked up easy wins over PBKS and RCB in the following matches. LSG look a very strong team on paper at the moment. Quinton De Kock has looked in great touch while the reliable KL Rahul adds a lot of quality to the top order. Nicholas Pooran has been superb in middle order while Marcus Stoinis has also hit the few lusty blows. 

The only player that has looked off colour is Devdutt Padikkal and LSG will have to take a call on him. LSG have also unearthed a gem of a pacer in Mayank Yadav, who has grabbed the eyeballs with his searing pace and accuracy.

Meanwhile, GT has blown hot and cold, winning two and losing two games. They lost to CSK and PBKS but defeated MI and SRH. The good news for GT is that Shubman Gill returned to form against PBKS and scored 89. However, their middle order looks a bit shaky as there has not been big contributions from Vijay Shankar, David Miller or Kane Williamson. 

If GT lose early wickets, they can be put under pressure. Also, GT lack a match winning bowler. Mohit Sharma has done well on occasions but others have been disappointing. Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed are GT’s best hopes but the wickets have been so good that it will be tough for them to lead GT to a win without the support of fast bowlers.

LSG Team News & Playing 11

LSG Team News

Devdutt Padikkal has not looked in great form so there is a possibility of Deepak Hooda getting a shot in the playing XI. There should be no other changes in the playing XI unless there is an unreported injury concern. Meanwhile, Shivam Mavi has been ruled out of the tournament due to injury.

LSG Key Players

  • KL Rahul- Rahul has been one of the most consistent performers for LSG in the previous two years and started the season with a fifty against RR. However, it was followed by two back to back low scores. Rahul will be eyeing a strong return against GT.
  • Quinton de Kock- De Kock has been in great form and is getting better with every passing game. He scored his second consecutive fifty of IPL 2024 when he blasted 81 in 56 balls against RCB. He will be looking to make it a hattrick of half centuries in next game.
  • Nicholas Pooran- Pooran has been going through a purple patch in his career. He blasted 40 in just 21 balls against RCB and took LSG to a fighting total. When on song, Pooran is impossible to contain. He has started IPL 2024 on a very strong note.
  • Mayank Yadav- Yadav has grabbed eyeballs with his searing pace and accuracy. With six wickets in two matches, he has already won two match of the match awards. He has been a nemesis for the batters so far and all eyes will be on him when he takes the field against GT.

LSG Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Deepak Hooda, M Siddharth, Amit Mishra, K Gowtham, Shamar Joseph

Mostly, M Siddharth will be used as an impact player by LSG as he did remarkably well against RCB. In case they need a batter, Hooda or Padikkal, whoever is not in the playing XI can get a game.

LSG Team Form

LSG lost the first game to RR but won their following two games against PBKS and RCB respectively.

LSG Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), KL Rahul (C), Devdutt Padikka/Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Nicholas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohsin Khan/Yash Thakur, Mayank Yadav, Naveen ul Haq

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

The Titans failed to defend 199 against PBKS, showing the weakness in their bowling attack. Umesh Yadav has looked ineffective and he can be replaced by Kartik Tyagi. Also, Shahrukh Khan or Abhinav Manohar will be in line to play the next game, replacing Vijay Shankar. If David Miller is fit, he will come in place of Kane Williamson.

GT Key Players

  • Shubman Gill- Shubman Gill returned to form with a magnificent knock of 89 against PBKS. If GT have to make an impact in IPL 2024, Shubman Gill will have to play a massive role in their campaign. 
  • Sai Sudharsan- The left hander has played well for GT this season. With 160 runs in 4 matches, he has got his campaign off to a decent start. Sudharsan is one of the most promising Indian batters and very well capable to set the stage on fire in IPL 2024.
  • Rahul Tewatia- Every time GT need someone to bail them out of trouble, Tewatia  has raised his hand. Even though he bats low in the order, GT might think of promoting him above given his consistent performances. If GT is chasing, Tewatia will be their most important player.
  • Noor Ahmed- Noor Ahmed was the best GT bowler and he picked two wickets for 32 runs in 4 overs against PBKS. Rashid might not get many wickets as teams often tends to play him cautiously, however, Noor is not easy to defend given his variations thus there is no second line of defence against him.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Mohit Sharma, Shahrukh Khan, Abhinav Manohar, Manav Suthar, Karthik Tyagi

Mohit Sharma will likely be used as an impact player but if GT need a batter, one of Abhinav Manohar or Shahrukh Khan can be used if he is not in the playing XI.

GT Team Form

GT have been inconsistent this season. They have played four games, winning two and losing two.

GT Predicted Playing 11

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, Kane Williamson/David Miller, Vijay Shankar/Shahrukh Khan, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Umesh Yadav/Kartik Tyagi, Darshan Nalkande

LSG vs GT Betting Odds

LSG are getting the favourites tag. GT is not as strong as it was in previous two seasons, and also LSG will be playing at home so they are the favourites.

Who will win Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans T20 Match?

We suggest backing LSG to win. Playing at home is an advantage for LSG. Also, the form of Quinton de Kock, KL Rahul, Krunal Pandya, Nicholas Pooran has been good. LSG also have a better bowling attack, especially with Mayank Yadav in great form.
