Gujarat, meanwhile, have odds of 1.87 to beat Lucknow Super Giants. However, despite their great start to the season, Gujarat have found themselves at the wrong side of the result twice in a row.
The loss to Mumbai Indians, in particular, would hurt Gujarat as they aim for a top two finish.
What happened earlier…
The first match these teams played in the season was against each other. Then, a superlative bowling show from Gujarat helped restrict Lucknow to a modest 158/6. In response, Gujarat were propelled by some late hitting from Rahul Tewatia as they went on to win by five wickets in the last over.

Lucknow are the in-form side with bat and ball of late in the season and are favourites to win this battle.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The battle this match would be between Lucknow’s robust bowling attack and the less-than-ideal batting group of Gujarat Titans.
While GT have put together decent performances with the bat, they will need good sustained aggression to put up totals past Lucknow.
Keep an eye on…
Shubman Gill-Wriddhiman Saha: Shubman Gill and Saha compiled a terrific opening stand against Mumbai Indians, but it went in vain as the middle-order failed to finish for once, but for Gujarat to challenge the top sides, the opening pair will need to click again.
Jason Holder: Jason Holder has been brilliant at the top and tail for Lucknow and will hold all aces when it comes to restricting Gujarat’s dangerous lower order batting pair of David Miller and Rahul Tewatia.
TIP: KL Rahul comes off the back of a duck and will want to turn his form around again. Back KL Rahul at 3.13 to be the top batter tonight!
