IPL newcomers Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) and Gujarat Titans (GT) clash in match 57 of the Indian Premier League 2022 on Tuesday, May 10. The LSG vs GT IPL 2022 match starts at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune from 7:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans: IPL 2022 standings
Though Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Giants are playing their debut IPL campaigns, both teams have fared extremely well and are currently 1-2 in the IPL 2022 standings.
The KL Rahul-led Lucknow Super Giants top the table with 16 points from 11 matches - an identical record as second-placed Gujarat Titans. Only net run rate separates LSG and PBKS in the standings and a win on Tuesday will be enough for either team to confirm their passage to the playoffs.
Form, however, is on LSG’s side, who come into the match on the back of four back-to-back victories. Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans, though, have dropped off a bit after a sensational start and have lost their last two on the bounce.

Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans top picks
LSG: Captain KL Rahul has led LSG from the front this season. The India international, with 451 runs in 11 matches, is the second-highest scorer in IPL 2022 after Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler and averages over 50 this campaign. Needless to say, getting KL out early will be high on GT’s agenda.
LSG’s pace battery, consisting of Avesh Khan and Jason Holder, has jointly picked up 36 this seasons and will be LSG’s ace of spades against the GT batting line-up.
GT: The Titans have had multiple contributors with the bat this season, with captain Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill and David Miller all having contributed 300 runs or more.
Indian speedster Mohammed Shami has been the pick of the bowlers for GT this campaign and is the team’s top wicket taker with 15 scalps. Three of them came against LSG in the season opener where his figures of 3/24 helped Gujarat Titans to a win and earned him the Man of the Match award.
Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans IPL 2022 prediction
Though LSG seem to be the team in better form, the odds lean towards Gujarat Titans, albeit slightly, owing to their success in the two team’s previous meeting. The Titans have also been arguably the more impressive of the two sides over the course of IPL 2022.
The margins, though, are really thin and the match could end up going either way.
