LSG vs GT Live: Here’s what KL Rahul said at the toss
I would have batted but not worried about it. We will play good cricket. We bowled against SRH as well, we would like to restrict them to a good target and chase it down. Same 12 players. Yudhvir misses out, Amit Mishra comes in, he was the impact player in the last game. Trusted the 12-13 players, have had a few injuries, each game someone has put their hand up and done the job for the team. We are gelling together well and winning games. That goes hand in hand. it’s been a good vibe in the dressing room.

‘The side boundaries are 63m on one side and 72m on the other. The straight boundary is massive at 78m and the pockets are large as well. This pitch was used in the match against SRH which was a low-scoring affair, but this looks slightly better. Very little grass on this one, spinners will have to bowl a Test match length if they’re to succeed’, reckon Murali Kartik and Daren Ganga.
LSG vs GT Live: LSG’s strong pace attack
In Mark Wood, Avesh Khan and Yudhvir Singh Charak, LSG also possess a good pace department. Debutant Naveen-ul Haq sizzled in his maiden game against RR and will look to continue in the same vein.

LSG vs GT Live: GT’s strong pace attack
Mohammed Shami has been a constant wicket-taker and has looked potent in the powerplay but more is expected of Alzarri Joseph and Josh Little.
