GT vs LSG LIVE Score, IPL 2022 Match Streaming: Rahul, de Kock open to LSG

Welcome to sports star‘s LIVE coverage of the first IPL 2022 match between the two new franchises – Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. This is Santadeep Deyallowing you to see all the action of the Wankhede Stadium.


LSG in 1 over: The ball moves noticeably as it passes the bat and Gujarat sniffs something from the very first ball.

Hardik leads the Titans in the middle. Rahul and de Kock also stroll in. Shami will open the bowling alley. The countdown begins…


Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade (week, Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Aaron, Mohammed Shami

Lucknow Supergiants: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mohsin Khan, Ayush Badoni, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan


KL Rahul: “I think it’s pretty easy when you play in Wankhede. Everyone wants to bowl first. The dew plays a big part in the second innings, but the wicket stays the same through the 40 overs. It’s our first game and it’s important to go out and enjoy.”

Hardik Pandya: “It’s the first game. We want to see how the wicket plays. The dew is a factor. It’s always special to play in Wankhede because I’ve had great memories here. It’s a different role, a different team, but the feeling is the same. We are going to give all the boys complete freedom to play freely and enjoy themselves. Lockie, Wade, Rashid and Miller are our four foreign players.”


Gujarat Titans choose to bowl.

You can see Hardik Pandya rolling his arms. Is he going bowling tonight? Sunil Gavaskar thinks that if he starts bowling at full throttle, he should be automatically selected for the T20 World Cup.

Will Hardik bowl against Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022 today?


“It is a brand new field. The field has moved two strips from the first game. One square boundary is only 59 meters, the other is 70 meters. It looks very dry and has lost a lot of grass. Rashid Khan will come into play. The cracks are also starting to open. Dew will be a factor and captains will love to hunt,” I think Graeme Swann and Matthew Hayden


Lucknow Supergiants: KL Rahul (c) (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Manan Vohra, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Ankit Rajpoot, Dushmantha Chameera.

Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Abhinav Manohar, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Hardik Pandya (c), Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Dominic Drakes, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.

It will be a test of characters for the two captains – KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya – when newcomers Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants meet Monday in their opening game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at Wankhede Stadium.

After being an integral part of the Mumbai Indians for seven seasons, Hardik switched to the Gujarat franchise as a skipper this year. The all-rounder has not played competitive cricket since last year’s T20 World Cup and it remains to be seen whether Hardik will actually bowl this edition of the tournament. However, Gujarat’s team management admits that it would rely heavily on Hardik – the batter – who has a lot of experience playing at Wankhede stadium.

While Gujarat outfit is expected to field Shubman Gill and stumper batter Rahmanullah Gurbaz as the opening pair, much will also depend on Rahul Tewatia and Vijay Shankar. The team will be looking for an all-round show from the two seasoned campaigners and will also count on Abhinav Manohar and David Miller.

For Lucknow, the focus will be on Rahul, who joined the franchise after leading the Punjab Kings for several seasons. Although Rahul enjoyed success with the willow, Punjab failed to reach the playoffs in both seasons. So this time, the Indian international hopes to make an impact as captain. The batting division will revolve around him, with Quinton de Kock and Evin Lewis accompanying him.

The middle class also looks solid with the likes of Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Manish Pandey and Jason Holder.

In the bowling department, Gujarat has a star-studded unit made up of Mohammed Shami and Afghan leg spinner Rashid Khan. Lucknow also has some incredible artists. In the absence of Mark Wood, Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi will lead, while Wood’s replacement Andrew Tye could also have an impact.

The opening game at Wankhede Stadium was a low scoring affair and it would be interesting to see how both sides handle their team selection and execute the plans.
