GT vs LKN: The Pandya brothers, Hardik and Krunal, who were once teammates, will now face each other as they lead their respective teams, the Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans, in the upcoming 51st match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 on Sunday. The match will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Gujarat Titans have been dominating this tournament, with seven wins out of 10 matches and only three losses. They are undoubtedly the team to beat this season, having recently crushed Rajasthan Royals with a stunning eight-wicket victory. As they prepare to take on their next opponent, the Titans will be determined to hold onto their top spot.
Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, have had a moderate run in this tournament, winning five out of their 10 matches while one match was abandoned due to rain. They currently occupy the fourth spot on the points table with 11 points. The team will miss the services of their regular captain, KL Rahul, but will be buoyed by the stellar batting performance of Aayush Badoni in the last game.
Both these teams are set to face each other for the second time this season, with their previous clash taking place in Lucknow. In that match, Gujarat Titans emerged victorious, defeating Lucknow Supergiants by a narrow margin of seven runs. Heading into this game, Lucknow will be eager to even the score and claim a much-needed win.
