Gujarat Titans vs Lucknow Super Giants: LSG Playing 11 Against GT (Predicted)- IPL 2022, Match 04, GT vs LSG. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), like the Gujarat Titans, will be playing their first season of the IPL. Former Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul will captain the new franchise in the IPL 2022. Lucknow Super Giants drafted opener KL Rahul, leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi and all-rounder Marcus Stoins to their team before the IPL 2022 mega auction.

In Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul, Lucknow Super Giants have a formidable opening pair. Lucknow Super Giants also boast a solid Indian core in the likes of batters KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, all-rounders Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, pacer Avesh Khan and leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi, all of whom are almost guaranteed to be in the playing XI.

opener KL Rahul has been prolific with the bat in the last four years. He has scored at least over 500 runs and ended amongst the top run-getters. The former Punjab Kings captain notably finished with the Orange Cap in the 2020 edition, hammering 670 runs in 14 games at 55.83.

KL Rahul has played 94 matches in IPL and has amassed 3273 runs at an average of 47.43. In IPL 2021, KL Rahul smashed 626 runs in 13 matches and was the third-highest run-getter, but unfortunately, failed to inspire the Punjab Kings side to a title. KL Rahul has scored 659, 593, 670, and 626 runs in the past four seasons, respectively.

South African wicket-keeper batter Quinton de Kock was bought by Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) for INR 6.75 crore, which is quite the steal considering the value that the 29-year-old brings to the table. The South African wicketkeeper-opener was a force for Mumbai Indians (MI), and it was a surprise for the latter to let go of him before IPL 2022 auctions.

Manish Pandey smacked 94 runs off just 50 balls in IPL 2014 finals as KKR chased down 200 to lift their maiden IPL trophy. The 32-year old batter was acquired by 4.60 crores by the new franchise Lucknow Super Giants.

He has played 154 matches amassing 3560 runs since IPL 2008 averaging 30.69. He has played for Kolkata Knight Riders, Pune Warriors India, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad previously.

Deepak Hooda

All-rounder Deepak Hooda will play for the Lucknow franchise.  The newly inducted franchise bought Deepak Hooda at a price of 5.75 Crores. Notable that he recently made his international debut for India in the ODI series against West Indies.

Deepak Hooda was part of the Punjab Kings (PBKS) over the last couple of seasons of the IPL but was not retained by the franchise ahead of the upcoming IPL 2022 mega auction. He aggregated 261 runs in the 19 matches he played for the Punjab Kings in the last two seasons of the IPL. He struck a couple of half-centuries for the franchise with a top score of 64.

The Windies was roped in for his base price of ₹2 crores. However, given the magnitude of batting talent he possesses, the price is too small. It could be a steal deal for LSG, as the Trinidadian is famous for his hard-hitting abilities. Although he hasn’t been slightly shaky in the last couple of seasons, he would hardly need one good knock to get going.

Krunal Pandya

After making his debut in 2016, Krunal Pandya played 86 games in IPL and picked 51 wickets with an economy of 7.37. He also scored 1143 runs with a strike rate of 138.55. Krunal Pandya also represented India in 5 ODIs and 19 T20Is. Last year, he scored the fastest fifty (off 26 balls) on his ODI debut by any player. However, since the Sri Lanka tour last year, he has been off the radar from the Indian team.

Dushmantha Chameera

Dushmantha Chameera was bought by Lucknow Super Giants for INR two crore at the IPL 2022 mega auction. The Sri Lankan pacer did not feature in the recently-concluded two-match Test series against India due to an ankle injury, which has put him out of action from red-ball cricket for a while.

The Sri Lankan pace sensation will be making his debut in the IPL 2022. The 30-year-old is known for his raw pace along with well-disguised yorkers and can be a really handy bowler both in the powerplay overs and in the death overs. In the absence of Mark Wood, the onus will be on him to make the ball do the talking.

Krishnappa Gowtham

Lucknow Super Gbought former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) spin-bowling all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham for INR 9 million (INR 90 lakhs). The spin-bowling all-rounder Krishnappa Gowtham bagged a staggering INR 9.25 crore contract from Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021.

Rajasthan Royals picked Krishnappa Gowtham for a whopping INR 6.2 crore from his base price of INR 20 lakhs in IPL 2018 auctions.  The all-rounder scored 126 runs and took 11 wickets in IPL 2018 where he played 15 games. He played only 7 games in 2019 for Rajasthan and only 2 in 2020 for Punjab Kings (formerly Kings XI Punjab) and didn’t perform that well.

Ravi Bishnoi

Ravi Bishnoi was awarded the player of the match award on his T20I debut against West Indies and became only the 9th Indian cricketer to achieve the feat. Ravi Bishnoi became the first Indian player from the batch of U-19 World Cup 2020 to make it to the senior team. He bowled the second most economical spell by any Indian spinner on debut.

In 23 IPL games, Ravi Bishnoi has picked 24 wickets so far and is known to keep batters from getting big runs and boasts of an economy rate of 6.97.

Andrew Tye has picked up 40 wickets in 27 IPL matches at an economy rate of 8.46. Three days before the start of IPL 2022, Lucknow Super Giants have brought onboard Australia fast bowler Andrew Tye – the IPL 2018 purple cap winner – as a late replacement for the injured England fast bowler Mark Wood.

Avesh Khan

Avesh Khan hasn’t put a foot wrong since the start of last year’s IPL. He ended the tournament for Delhi Capitals with 14 wickets in 16 matches at an impressive economy rate of 7.37.

The 25-year-old Avesh Khan put up an impressive bowling display in IPL 2021, leading to Lucknow Super Giants splurging a colossal sum of 10 crores to buy him. In the recent two-day IPL 2022 Auction in Bengaluru, the pacer became the most expensive uncapped cricketer in the history of IPL auctions.
