LSG are coming off an impressive win over Rajasthan Royals in their own den in their previous outing defending the lowest total of IPL 2023 so far. LSG didn't let RR reach the target of 155 runs and the way Lucknow surface behaves, the team looks perfectly settled at the moment.

On the other hand, GT have been hard done by miracles and one-man shows so far. Rinku Singh smashed five sixes off Yash Dayal to take KKR home while Rajasthan Royals scored close to 40 runs in their last three overs courtesy of some brilliant hitting from Shimron Hetmyer. The team will be fresh after a six-day break since their last outing and the Hardik Pandya led side will be looking to make a fresh start yet again. The team is at the fourth position at the moment and a win in this game can take them to the third place depending on the margin of victory.
