Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujrat Titans Live Score Updates: Lucknow Super Giants’ spirited chase came to an end as clinical Gujarat Titans outplayed them in match 51 of the Indian Premier League today. Though Kyle Mayers and Quinton de Kock gave a solid start to the Super Giants thanks to their error-free cricket. At one point, the usual spin attack by Rashid Khan and Md Shami were not able to deter the LSG batters. At that time, LSG’s run rate was much above the asking rate. But Mohit Sharma ended the first wicket stand and sent Mayers packing. Shami’s second spell got the wicket of Deepak Hooda. Marcus Stoinis could have been the right ally for de Kock in this chase but that didn’t happen as Mohit Sharma took his wicket. De Kock was probably only hope for LSG but ace spin attack by Rashid Khan got him. Later, we saw Noor Ahmed sending back Nicolas Pooran. Mohit Sharma picked up two quick wickets of Ayush Badoni and Krunal Pandya.
Earlier in the day, Lucknow Super Giants won the toss and stand-in skipper Krunal Pandya asked Gujarat Titans to bat first. Krunal must be wondering if he took the right decision or not! There were some heart-touching scenes before the toss between him and brother Hardik. But on filed, Titans were in murderous mood today! Wriddhiman Saha, who got his form back in the last match vs RR, continued the super show today. His 12th half-century came from just 20 deliveries and no LSG bowler could stop him today. But finally, LSG’s Avesh Khan picked up that much-needed wicket of Wriddhiman Saha! The GT opener departed for 81. The cameo by skipper Hardik Pandya kept run flowing for home team. But LSG‘s Mohin sent him packing! GT’s run rate was between 9 and 13 throughout. While Saha’s super show helped GT to post the best power play total ever, Gill’s stunning 94 not out got GT in hunt for 220+ score. The final score stood at 227.
This match of ongoing IPL tournament was extra special. This was the first time that two brothers were captaining the two teams against each other. When asked about how his family felt, Krunal Pandya joked that his mother said that it didn’t matter which side win, two points are coming to ‘home’. This was the second time that the two teams faced each other in IPL 2023. During the last encounter, GT had won the match by seven runs. Krunal was leading the LSG squad today due to absence of regular skipper KL Rahul.

4/29 – that's what Mohit Sharma's bowling figures read! Splendid performance as he gets Badoni and Krunal Pandya on two consecutive balls.
Quinton de Kock made a comeback for LSG today and slammed a half-century. His 70 off 41 kept LSG alive in game till Rashid Khan walked in. He got rid of de Kock and Noor Ahmed got Nicolas Pooran. No point of return for LSG now?
That's how the chase is going for Lucknow Super Giants. And if that wasn't enough, Mohit Sharma got Marcus Stoinis. Bad getting worse for LSG!
Just when LSG camp was celebrating Quinton de Kock's 50 off 31 balls, Shami got rid of Deepak Hooda. This is de Kock's first half-century in this season of the Indian Premier league. Marcus Stoinis is here to bat
The gap of score between the two innings is widening with each bowl. After 10 overs, GT were 121 vs LSG's 102. A lot depends on deKock to get the bulk of batting done. Mohit Sharma is bowling again.
No early spin attack could get Mayers and then Hardik brought in Mohit Sharma to get the job done. Brilliant bowling and superb fielding by Rashid Khan end the first wicket partnership of Mayers and de Kock. Deepak Hooda is here to bat.
After 8 overs, GT were 98 and LSG are 88. Can Super Giants cover up the gap?
Rashid Khan asked for review, Hardik Pandya went for it and lots. This means that Mayers continues to bat. He is on course for that half-century. The powerplay gave a smooth start for Super Giants as they keep the chase on.
Mayers and de Kock are playing an error-free game so far with Mayers taking the lead. It is pretty similar to what we saw earlier in the day when Saha and Gill were batting. But the key here is that Mayers and de Kock are chasing a huge total. so naturally, there's lot of pressure.
Saha was not looking comfortable and he walked out with physio. KS Bharat is finally here and is wicketkeeping for Gujarat Titans. So this means both GT openers, who played amazing innings in the afternoon have been rested.
15 off 10 and going strong, Karl Mayers need to continue the attack mode for successful chase.
It seems that GT wanted to rest Saha too. KS Bharat was ready with gloves and all. But GT wanted Bharat not as impact sub. But that was not allowed, and Saha later came to the field.
Alazarri Joseph has substituted Shubhman Gill
Mayers and de Kock will open for LSG. And yes, Md Shami will bowl the first over. some confusion over impact sub in GT camp.
That's massive, massive target! The spectacular innings by GT openers – Wriddhiman Saha and Shubhman Gill – power GT to this huge total. LSG batters would need to come up with gameplan for this tough chase.
Gill is on 94 right now and GT's score is 222. Can Gill smash a six for the stunning century?
Hardik Pandya's 25 off 15 kept the momentum going until Mohin Khan struck! And guess who got Hardik's catch? Brother Krunal! David Miller is batting along with Gill. GT are already past 200. Point is how far they can go from here?
Except for that one wicket of Wriddhiman Saha, Krunal Pandya has tried everything but success eludes him! Shubhamn Gill is playing his natural game and frustrating LSG bowlers. Skipper Hardik Pandya's pure muscle show has powered some huge shots. Death overs are left and avg each over is yielding 20 runs! Can GT score biggest total of IPL 2023 today?
Avesh Khan gets Wriddhiman Saha in breakthrough wicket for Lucknow Super Giants. Finally, the first wicket partnership between Saha and Shubhman Gill comes to an end. Saha's 81 off 43 blitz included 10 FOURs and four 6s.
Shubhman Gill hist 50 off 29 deliveries! This is the 18th half-century for the young batter in the IPL. Gill has slammed five 6s so far with an astonishing strike rate of 183. 87
Gill, Saha whacked 120 and continue the solid show as their first wicket partnership continues. Can any LSG bowler end this?
Shubhman Gill deicides to end the quietness with those two massive shots!
78 runs on the scoreboard! This is the best score that Gujarat Tians have seen during the powerplay ever. No LSG bowler has any chance in front of Saha today. He smashed 50 off 20 and is still going strong. Gill is happily playing second fiddle to him.
Thanks to terrific batting by Wriddhiman Saha, GT crossed half-century mark in no times. The current run rate is at 12 at the moment. If this momentum continues, GT can easily score 200 on the board!
Also known as 'Superman' and 'Papali' to his team, Wriddhiman Saha has been dismissed as many as 8 times during the powerplay. Half the powerplay is gone. Can he break the jinx today?
When asked how he is feeling playing against his brother, Hardik Pandya said that it was an 'emotional day' and 'our father would have been very proud of us.' before the toss, we saw two brother chatting up and checking if everything was fine. A tear or two there but camera didn't catch that!
Pretty good start for GT. Mohsin Khan looked in control till Saha started playing on front foot. Those two boundaries looked absolutely effortless.
GT openers – Saha and Gill – are here! Mohsin Khan will bowl the first over.
LSG's last game vs CSK was washed out due to rains.
Gt are heading into this game in upbeat mood on the back of their thumping victory against Rajasthan Royals in their last match. GT had defeated RR by 9 wickets.
At Narendra Modi Stadium, if we look at the last ten matches, the avg winning score is 187.

It's hot out there in Ahmedabad and we are not talking about the IPL craze! Temperature hovers around 39-40 degree C. The match begins at 3:30 and it would be peak of ground heat! It would be interesting to see how ball turns.
A terrific asset for LSG, Quinton de Kock will be part of the Playing XI, stand-in skipper Krunal Pandya said after the toss.
Lucknow Super Giants have won the toss and choose to bowl first. When asked what GT had done had they won toss, Hardik said that they would have batted first.
In last 10 matches, the team that won the toss and opted to bat first won 4 times. On the other hand, the team that won the toss and elected to field first have won 6 times. heaven for chasers, is it?
