Both Lucknow and Gujarat are playing the first season of IPL this year. This will be the second match between the two teams. The first match was won by GT and they are leading the head-to-head competition 1-0.
Gujarat Titans have been the most consistent team of this season. However, she has appeared in a bit of trouble after losing the last two matches.
In front of Punjab, Hardik won the toss and deliberately chose to bat first so that he could check the balance of his team in difficult situations. Due to the disappointing performance of GT’s batsmen, PBKS chased down the target in almost 16 overs.
