Ahmedabad: Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) won the toss and elected to bowl first against Gujarat Titans (GT) in an IPL 2023 match at the Narendra Modi Stadium, here on Sunday.

Quinton de Kock has come in for Naveen-Ul-Haq in LSG playing XI while Alzarri Joseph replaced Joshua Little in the GT line-up.

“We will bowl first. It’s a dream come true for us, leading our respective sides. Overall the wicket will play the same. We have a good batting side, and we fancy our chance to chase down the total. We have played good cricket, and we stand at a good stage in the points table. De Kock is in, Naveen misses out,” LSG skipper Krunal Pandya said at the toss.

On playing against his brother, GT skipper Hardik Pandya said: “It’s an emotional day, our father would have been proud. This is something happening for the first time, so our family is proud. One Pandya will definitely win today.”

“It’s about expressing ourselves and not worrying about the result. The fear of failure might creep in, but we need to play good cricket. One forced change, Little is out as he has to play for Ireland, Alzarri comes in for him,” he added.
