Ind T20 League 2022

Match 4- GUJ vs LUC



Preview 

Match 4 of the Ind T20 League 2022 will feature the two new franchises added this year. Gujarat and Lucknow will lock horns on Monday at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. While Hardik Pandya will lead Gujarat, Kl Rahul will captain the Lucknow unit. The two teams had an herculean task of assembling a versatile squad from the scratch during the auction, and both did fairly well. Lucknow in particular have built an amazingly balanced squad without creating much fuss. 

Lucknow made versatile bids during the bidding war and got a few from the top-shelf early in the auction. Besides their three draft picks, Ravi Bishnoi, KL Rahul and Marcus Stoinis- Lucknow had various issues sorted out at the start, helping them remain calm and collective as the auction progressed. They purchased D. Chameera, M.Wood and A.Khan to set up a lethal pace prowess. In the batting department they have the likes of  E.Lewis, Kl Rahul and Q. De Kock. Manish Pandey is the other batter to watch out for. He is a seasoned white ball cricketer with over 3500 runs in the league.   

After Gujarat made draft choices of the top grade trio of Rashid Khan, Hardik Pandya, Shubhman Gill, much was expected from the new entrant, but they clearly lacked strategic planning which was very evident when they had no wicketkeeper until the final hour of the auction and then frenziedly made bid for the first two names that came up in the accelerated auction. The batting order lacks depth with much riding on David Miller and Hardik Pandya who are in woeful form of late. Bowling department looks threatening with Alzarri Joseph now in the mix. He alongside Mohommad Shami and Lockie Ferguson can forge a fearsome pace trio. Ahead of this riveting encounter, let us have a look at how these sides will fare out in Monday’s clash
