In the second innings, the bowlers didn’t allow KKR batters to settle and helped the team win by a huge 75-point margin.

Top Picks For LSG vs GT Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – fogged
He has become the most important player for LSG in the middle class. He has made 30+ scores in the last 3 matches including half a century against Delhi Capitals. He would once again be looking for a key role for the team in this match.
He is just 12 runs short of becoming the leading run scorer for GT this season. Gill has given the team a fiery start in the last few games and is expected to play a similar role in this one. In the last game against MI, he made 52 runs from 36 deliveries and added 106 runs for the first wicket along with Wriddhiman Saha.
Top Picks – Allrounders
In 10 matches, Hardik Pandya has scored 333 runs with an average of 41.62 and a strike rate of 134.27 including 3 half-centuries. He hasn’t been able to get a decent score in the last 4 matches and should play a key role for GT in this match.

Top Picks – bowlers

He won the player of the match award in the last game against KKR. Avesh took 3 wickets for just 19 runs in 3 overs, including a maiden over in the match. He has missed a few games for LSG this season, but he is still the leading wicket taker for the team.
Top Picks – wicket keepers
He was fired for a duck in the last game against KKR and it was the second duck for him this season. After his first duck, Rahul scored a century in the next game. He may be looking for similar innings in this game.
