In the second innings, the bowlers didn’t allow KKR batters to settle in and helped the team win by a huge margin of 75 runs.

Top Picks for LSG vs GT Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Deepak Hooda: He has become the key player for LSG in the middle order. He has made 30+ scores in the last 3 matches including a half-century against Delhi Capitals. He would again be looking to play a key role for the team in this match.
Shubman Gill: He is just 12 runs short of becoming the leading run-scorer for GT this season. Gill has provided fiery starts to the team in the last couple of matches and would be expected to play a similar role in this match. In the last game against MI, he made 52 runs off 36 deliveries and added 106 runs for the first wicket along with Wriddhiman Saha.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Hardik Pandya: In 10 matches, Hardik Pandya has made 333 runs at an average of 41.62 and a strike rate of 134.27 including 3 half-centuries. He has not been able to make a decent score in the last 4 matches and would be expected to play a key role for GT in this game.
Jason Holder: He has not received enough opportunity to showcase his batting skills this season. However, he has been very lethal with the ball. Holder has taken 12 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 24.41, an economy of 9.30, and a strike rate of 15.7.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Rashid Khan: He picked 2 wickets for 24 runs in the last game against MI. Rashid is an important part of GT’s bowling lineup and has made some contributions with the bat as well. He has taken 11 wickets in 11 matches at an average of 27.36.
Avesh Khan: He won the player of the match award in the last game against KKR. Avesh picked 3 wickets for just 19 runs in 3 overs including a maiden over in the match. He has missed a few matches for LSG this season, however, he is still the leading wicket-taker for the team.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Lokesh Rahul: He was dismissed for a duck in the last game against KKR and it was the second duck for him this season. After his first duck, Rahul went on to score a century in the next game. He might be looking to play similar innings in this match.
Quinton de Kock:
He scored the third half-century of this season in the last game against KKR. De Kock has made 344 runs in 11 matches at an average of 31.27 and a strike rate of 138.70.

LSG vs GT Risky Captaincy Choices:
Marcus Stoinis: He is yet to play a significant innings for LSG this season both with the bat and the ball. Stoinis has managed to score over 30 runs only once in 7 matches and has picked only 1 wicket. You can back him to do well in this match, however, it might be a risk to pick him as the captain of your fantasy team.
David Miller: He has made 306 runs in 11 matches at an average of 61.20 and a strike rate of 145.02. Since making 94 not-out against Chennai Super Kings, he has not been able to play an innings with such intensity. It might be a risk to pick him as the captain of your fantasy team.
Player you should avoid:
Ravi Bishnoi: He has not been able to pick more than 1 wicket in the last 7 matches for LSG. You can avoid him in your fantasy team for this match.
