Guwahati: Gujarat Titans (GT) make their Indian Premier League bow against fellow newcomers Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in match 4 of IPL 2022 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday (March 28).
This will be the first match for both teams as they look to make a good impression in their IPL debut. And it will be the first time Hardik Pandya leads a team in IPL.
Hardik will lead Gujarat Titans, while his close pal KL Rahul will lead Lucknow Super Giants. It will also be the first time when the Pandya brothers face each other in IPL. GT, who picked Hardik, Rashid Khan and Shubman Gill, stacked their team with a lot of bowling options and ended up short of quality batting options. Meanwhile, LSG, who chose Rahul, Ravi Bishnoi and Marcus Stoinis as their draft picks, had a decent auction assembling a balanced squad to challenge for a top-four spots.
However, both teams will be without some key players for their season openers with some overseas stars being unavailable due to their national team commitments like Jason Holder, Kyle Mayers and Marcus Stoinis for LSG, while GT will be without the services of Alzarri Joseph.
