Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and Gujarat Titans (GT) — the two most in-form teams of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 – will take on each other on in their quest for maintaining the top two positions at the points table, in Match 57 of this season at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Tuesday evening.

After losing their opening encounter against Gujarat, K.L. Rahul's Lucknow have been consistent enough in their debut season to win eight matches out of their next 10. They have, in fact, won four on the trot, while the Titans, after a five-game winning streak, have lost two in a row, and will be eager to get back to winning ways at this business end of the IPL 2022 league stage.

Apart from the much-talked about star-studded top order, Lucknow also has an excellent pace attack. Their frontline pacers – Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan, Dushmantha Chameera and Jason Holder – have shared 44 wickets. The recent form of all-rounders Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda has helped their cause.

Things have gone a bit downhill for Gujarat of late. They had a collective batting failure against Punjab to get bowled out for a below-par total despite Sai Sudarshan's 65. Against Mumbai, they failed to chase 178 despite both openers – Shubman Gill and Wriddhiman Saha – scoring rapid half-centuries. Additionally, Mohammed Shami's expensive outings in the recent games will concern the management a bit, especially before the Playoffs. During this game against Lucknow, the Titans will be aiming to plug these holes.

Likely XIs

Lucknow Super Giants: Quinton de Kock (wk), K.L. Rahul (c), Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya, Ayush Badoni, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan, Mohsin Khan

Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Hardik Pandya (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Pradeep Sangwan, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami

Fantasy tips

- On that bouncy surface at Pune back the pace attacks of both teams to do well.

- Hardik Pandya's form has dipped a little of late, and making him captain may be a risky option. Back his brother Krunal instead.

- Do back Hooda to continue with his good batting form at No. 3 in this fixture.
