Lucknow and Gujarat are set to go head to head for a top-of-the-table clash at the MCA Stadium in Pune. Both these teams have caught all cricketing fans by surprise as they have dominated everyone so far. In their previous clash against each other, Gujarat registered a convincing victory. But entering this fixture, Lucknow have won their previous match against Kolkata while Gujarat lost to Mumbai by five runs.
Lucknow have been a dominant force and are at the top of the table in the tournament as of now. Their batting lineup has KL Rahul who has already scored two centuries with stars like Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda have been playing at an incredible level. Similarly, they have a bowling attack with stars like Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi who have picked up many wickets while being extremely economical. Mohsin Khan has been a splendid addition to their bowling arsenal while their all-rounders give them the much-needed balance, in case one of their preferred bowlers has a bad day.
Gujarat were clearly the best team until a few matches ago but now have had a couple of defeats in a row. They have a batting department with big hitters like David Miller and Rahul Tewatia who have been scoring a lot of runs. While there bowling is led by Rashid Khan and Mohammed Shami. Their all-rounder captain Hardik Pandya is the glue of the team with quality performances in all departments. More would certainly be expected of a talent like Shubman Gill at the top whose batting partner Wriddiman Saha has been successful in helping the team get the impetus needed in powerplay overs.
