Match 04 in the 2022 Indian Premier League sees the two new franchises go head-to-head. The Gujarat Titans and the Lucknow Super Giants face off in what will be a very interesting match. Both teams will of course want to enter the tournament on a high to show the other franchises they will be stiff competition. The teams will now bring in a greater audience, especially in Gujarat and Uttar Pradesh, which means the excitement around the IPL is set to be bigger than ever. The next time the Titans and the Super Giants will be able to face off is just under two months away in match 57 on the 10th of May, so they will certainly want to get off to a good footing early on. Keep reading our IPL prediction of who will win this match to get all the top information to make the most out of your online cricket betting .

Gujarat Titans Team Preview

The Ahmedabad based franchise is solid and formidable on paper, however in reality they could suffer from a lack of consistency. Before the auction, the Titans had already spent Rs 38 crore on skipper Hardik Pandya, ‘Afghanistan’s superstar spinner’ Rashid Khan, and Shubman Gill. Pandya and Khan were tied for the most expensive player on the team, costing the Titans a whopping Rs 30 crore. In the IPL auction, the Titans managed to secure players such as David Miller, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami (who is an Indian marquee player), and Jason Roy. However, it has been reported that Roy has since pulled out of the tournament and replaced by IPL debutant Rahmanullah Gurbaz.

The opening partnership is most likely looking to be Gill and Mathew Wade following the departure of Roy. While this pair seems the best choice for the Titans, there is still a possibility that Wriddhiman Saha could join Gill in the opening. Vijay Shankar, Pandya, Miller, and Rahul Tewatia are likely to follow as the middle order respectively. Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson, Rashid Khan, and Khan make up the bowling side. There are many good markets to choose from when making an IPL prediction and for the top scorer, we will have our eyes on Shubman Gill.

Lucknow Super Giants Team Preview

The Lucknow Super Giants are certainly entering the tournament with a super squad. The auction was rather fruitful as they managed to get many all-rounders in the team. This is great news for skipper KL Rahul (who was retained for Rs 17 crore) as he will have many different options to work with during the tournament. It is clear to see the goal of the IPL auction for the Super Giants was to create a squad with many bases covered. Players such as Deepack Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, and Krishnapaa Gowtham are a great example of this. Avesh Khan was bought for Rs 10 crore, followed by Stoinis for Rs 9.2 crore. Jason Holder, Krunal Pandya, and Quinton de Kock were bought for Rs 8.75, 8.25, and 6.25 respectively. Mark Wood was a fairly expensive player clocking in at Rs 7.50 crore, however, he has already been ruled out of the IPL 2022 due to an elbow injury.

The ideal opening partnership for the Super Giants would be de Kock and Rahul. With a right and left hand combination, this could give the team a strong start to the game and would give an undeniable confidence to the squad at the start. The middle order could see Manish Pandey in third, Hooda in fourth, and potentially Stoinis in fifth position. The balanced bowling line-up is headed by Ravi Bishnoi and Khan. Krishnappa Gowtham and Jason Holder are two all-rounders ready to use their IPL experience to push the team to victory.

Additionally, if you want to give IPL betting a go, there are plenty of markets to choose from. Regarding top scorer, who do we predict will win? Our recommendation for this is Rahul. In his 2021 IPL season, he averaged 62.60 with a strike rate of 138.80. He also holds the fastest 50 in the IPL from 14 balls. Despite the criticism for Rahul’s leadership during India’s tour of South Africa, the IPL will certainly be a fresh start for him.

Toss Prediction

With a relatively hard and flat pitch available to the captains, deciding to bat first (and well) will ensure their opponents will have a difficult score to chase down. However, as this match is commencing in the evening at 19:30 and dew could have a large influence on the toss. As dew accumulates on the field, this makes the ball slippery and can seriously affect the bowlers’ and fielders’ grip. Taking everything into account, our toss prediction is that the captain to win the toss will be inclined to field first.

Pitch Conditions

Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium is considered to be a proper batting wicket. The pitch doesn’t offer variable bounce and is rather uniform, which lends itself well to the batsmen and results in often high-scoring matches. The good weather conditions in the lead up to the match, and on the day, will mean the teams won't be faced with any additional environmental factors to contend with.

Our Match Prediction

What is the final opinion on our match prediction today? Although both teams will be wanting to enter the tournament with their best foot forward, we think that the Lucknow Super Giants will take the win for this match. While the Gujarat Titans’ squad seems strong on paper, we feel that the Lucknow Super Giants have an incredibly strong team for the match today with many notable players at their disposal. The top IPL betting sites seem to mostly share this opinion, however, it could be a very close game.
