LSG target first win over Titans as Mayank takes the spotlight again

The two teams have played four matches against each other, with Gujarat Titans winning every contest

Can LSG end their losing streak against Titans?

LSG have the most exciting player of this IPL season in their ranks: Mayank Yadav, the 21 year old tearaway who bowls thunderbolts in excess of 150 kph with unwavering accuracy. He stopped Punjab Kings in their tracks, blew RCB away, bowled the fastest ball of the season (156.7 kph), and became the first to win Player of the Match awards in his first two IPL matches. Another impressive outing against Gujarat Titans, a team LSG have not beaten in four attempts, will only increase the conversation around Mayank and the T20 World Cup that starts six days after the IPL final.

India will have to name their squad for that tournament by the end of this month and experts on ESPNcricinfo's show TimeOut have already gone to say that Mayank's "skillsets are important" and that "it would be crazy not to look at the players in form". Mayank, however, has said that he isn't looking too far ahead and that his focus is now on the IPL. And, more immediately, trying to score a maiden win for LSG against the Titans.

Mayank has not yet taken the new ball for LSG and if Shubman Gill is still batting, that match-up could be one that has significant impact on the result of the game. Gill comes into the contest having scored an unbeaten 89 against Punjab Kings, his first substantial innings as the new Titans captain in IPL 2024.

Mayank Yadav has set the IPL alight with two searing spells of fast bowling

Stats that matter

  • Nicholas Pooran has started the season with 146 runs in three innings at a strike rate of 175, a lot of his quick runs coming against spin. But in Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmad, Titans have two bowlers that Pooran has struggled against. He has scored only 27 runs off 43 balls for two dismissals off Rashid in T20 cricket. Against Noor, Pooran has scored no runs off six balls and been out twice in two innings.
  • LSG's spinners have bowled 24 overs so far this season and taken just two wickets at an average of 99.50. Mumbai Indians' spinners, who have also struck only twice this season, are the next worst in terms of average (76.50).
  • At 8.08, Titans have the second-best economy rate while bowling in the powerplay this season. However, LSG aren't too far behind at 8.61.

LSG vs GT in match 21 of Tata IPL 2024

In the spotlight: Padikkal and Shankar

Ahead of this year's auction, LSG traded Avesh Khan for Devdutt Padikkal but that move is yet to show results. Batting at No. 3 in the three matches so far, he has scored 0, 9 and 6. Padikkal has also fallen to pace each time. He is the link between LSG's strong opening combination and Marcus Stoinis and Nicholas Pooran in the middle order, and they need him to ensure that no momentum is lost.

Only Gill and Sudharsan have 100-plus runs this season among Titans' batters. They don't have Hardik Pandya to bank on anymore, and with Miller missing, they need players like Vijay Shankar to step up. He has scores of 12 (12 balls), 14* (11) in a run chase, and 8 (10).

Quotes

"I think one mistake we made last year was to chop and change our team too much. I think it's important while the team is doing well to keep the same balance."

LSG bowling coach Morne Morkel

"At the moment, the table is pretty tight. So no one's really running away at this stage."

David Miller isn't worried about Titans' seventh position in the points table

IPL 2024: Match 21, LSG vs GT Match Prediction: Who will win today IPL match?

LSG vs GT - Probable Best Players of the Match

Probable Best Batter: Shubman Gill

With 164 runs in four matches, Shubman Gill could be the best batter of match 21 of IPL 2024, especially considering that he's coming off a splendid 89* (48) in his side's previous outing a few days back. He seems to have found his mojo with the bat and would be looking to continue being the best form of himself in a fixture GT have dominated - winning all four of their games.

Probable Best Bowler: Mayank Yadav

Mayank Yadav promises to be the best bowler of match 21 of IPL 2024, having bowled his side to victory by providing two consecutive Player of the Match performances in his first two matches in the IPL. With relatively one-dimensional batters in the middle-order of the visiting team, Mayank could well be on his way to supply some crucial breakthroughs for his side.
