Preview:

The tournament has started with a bang with Kolkata Knight Riders defeating Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener. Now, it’s time to see the two new teams in action for the first time as IPL’s new entrants Gujarat Titans will make their first appearance against another debutant side Lucknow Super Giants, on 28th March at the Wankhede Stadium.

Pitch Report:

This is set to be the second game of the season at the Wankhede. Dew played a vital part in the game with batting becoming easier as the game progressed. “Dew will be the vital part in this edition. The team which wins the toss, will look to bowl first. The wicket was a little damp in the first 6-7 overs and then it came on nicely at the end of the innings,” CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja said in the post-match presentation.

Team Analysis:

Gujarat Titans:
The franchise will be led by all-rounder Hardik Pandya. Appointing the all-rounder as the skipper of the side was a big decision made by the franchise. Gujarat Titans have assembled a strong side as they picked Shubman Gill and Rashid Khan along with Pandya as their draft picks ahead of the mega auction. At the IPL 2022 Mega Auction, they made some interesting buys. The franchise has showed faith on some young players like Abhinav Manohar and Yash Dayal. The franchise appointed Ashish Nehra as head coach, Gary Kirsten as batting coach and mentor and Vikram Solanki as director of cricket operations.

Lucknow Super Giants:
Lucknow secured the services of captain KL Rahul, Marcus Stoinis and Ravi Bishnoi and then the franchise went to mega auction and made some brilliant buys. Lucknow signed players like Quinton de Kock, Avesh Khan, Manish Pandey, Krunal Pandya etc. which ensured that they have a very balanced team going into the season. Andy Flower is the head coach of the team and will be joined by Vijay Dahiya (Assistant Coach) and Gautam Gambhir (Team Mentor) in the dressing room. All-rounders Deepak Hooda and Krunal Pandya are likely to bat at five and six respectively and the duo will have a key role to play with their all-round skills.
