Gujarat Titans won the toss and opted to bat first and they made three changes to the playing XI as Australian wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade, Tamil Nadu left-arm spinner Sai Kishore and pacer Yash Dayal replaced Lockie Ferguson, Sai Sudharsan and Pradeep Sangwan in the team.

On the other hand, Lucknow Super Giants made one change to the playing XI as Karan Sharma replaced Ravi Bishnoi in the team.
