GT Vs LSG, IPL 2022: Rahul Tewatia Cameo Gives Gujarat Thrilling Win Vs Lucknow
Gujarat Titans' Rahul Tewatia rejoices after hitting the winning runs against Lucknow Super Giants.

Four wins in four chases so far in the IPL 2022. And when Hardik Pandya won the toss at the Wankhede Stadium, half the job was done. Mohammed Shami, Rahul Tewatia and David Miller did the rest as Gujarat Titans defeated Lucknow Super Giants by five wickets on their IPL debut. Batting first, Deepak Hooda and Ayush Badoni did a splendid job to take Lucknow Super Giants from 29/4 at one stage to 158/6 in 20 overs. That included Shami's 3/25 in four overs. In reply, Gujarat Titans were 15/2 before Hardik Pandya and Matthew Wade did the rescue act. With both the set batters out in the 12th over, it was left to Tewatia and Miller to do the rest. While Miller was dismissed with still 21 to win, Tewatia ensure there were no further hiccups. Get Highlights of GT vs LSG here.

    Captains Speak

    KL Rahul (LSG): It was a phenomenal game. What a way to start the campaign. Starting off like that with the bat was not ideal but the way we recovered was phenomenal. Good win for them and good learning for us. He's (Badoni) baby AB.

    Hardik Pandya (GT): This was the right game for us to be on either side and learn, but have learnt a lot by winning. Shami is known for his seam positions and he got us to a great start. We want to win as a team and nobody can take the contribution away from anyway. Manohar is someone who you are going to hear about in the future. Getting out to Krunal would have pinched me more had we lost, but now the family is neutral and happy. He got me out and we won the match.

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 10:58 PM

    Spinners Dominate

    The spinners have turned the tables for Lucknow Super Giants. In the last five overs GT could manage only 19 runs for two wickets. One of David Miller and Rahul Tewatia definitely needs to take the risk now. GT 91/4 (15)   

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 10:48 PM

    Can GT Win?

    The game isn't over yet. Everybody knows what David Miller and Rahul Tewatia can do to the opposition. It's a matter of a big over to get on the momentum. GT 88/4 (14)

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 10:12 PM


    At the end of the powerplay, Gujarat Titans are 44/2, much better placed compared to LSG. Matthew Wade and Hardik Pandya need to accelerate from here. Hardik has been timing the ball well. Looks like the long break worked for the India all-rounder.

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 9:58 PM

    Hardik In Middle

    Hardik Pandya has certainly come with a purpose. He starts off with a four off the pads before pulling another towards the deep-mid wicket off Dushmantha Chameera. GT 25/2 (3)   

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 9:53 PM

    Chameera On Fire

    Player Speak

    Ayush Badoni: I wasn't looking at the score. I realized later that I had reached fifty. I was nervous initially, couldn't sleep last night, but once I got the first boundary, I felt like I belong to this league. 

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 9:25 PM

    Innings Update

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 9:17 PM

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 8:46 PM

    LSG Rebuild

    Time for Deepak Hooda and Ayush Badoni to settle in and rebuild. Hooda, who made his India debut against West Indies, is taking on Hardik Pandya hitting him for three fours so far. Fifty comes up for LSG. LSG 58/4 (11) 

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 8:09 PM


    Lucknow Super Giants finish the powerplay at 32/4. Ayush Badoni and Deepak Hooda are in the middle. Can they stage a comeback? Oh, Hardik Pandya has come to bowl.   

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 8:03 PM

    Shami Strikes Again

    Another one bites the dust. Mohammed Shami strikes again. Manish Pandey tries to drive on the rise but completely misses the seam and gets his bail knocked off. What a spell by Shami. He has 3/10 in his three overs. LSG 29/4 (5) 

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:55 PM

    Sensational Gill

    Shubman Gill has taken the Cat of the Tournament. He runs backward 15-20 yards to take a diving catch. Evin Lewis goes for 10 of Varun Aaron. LSG 20/3 (3.3)  

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:49 PM

    Shami On Fire

    Bowled! Mohammed Shami came from round the wicket and Quinton de Kock simply just failed to read the seam movement and timbers shattered. LSG 13/2 (2.3)

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:42 PM

    First 4 For LSG

    First boundary for LSG in the IPL. Going down the leg off Varun Aaron, Evin Lewis swivel-pulls down the fine leg boundary. Seven runs off the over. LSG 9/1 (2) 

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:30 PM

    Shami Strikes 1st Ball

    KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock come out to open the batting LSG. Mohammed Shami with the ball in hand for GT. What a start to this game of newbies. Rahul gets a faint edge and the umpire remains unmoved. But UltraEdge shows otherwise. Just two runs from the first over. LSG 2/1 (1)

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:12 PM

    Captains Speak

    KL Rahul (LSG): It is our first game and important for us to enjoy ourselves. It's pretty straightforward to bowl first when you are playing at Wankhede Stadium. Our three overseas players are Evin Lewis, Quinton de Kock and Dusmantha Chameera.

    Hardik Pandya (GT): It is always special playing here. It is a different role, a different team but the feeling is same. I have been saying from Day 1 that we have given all the guys freedom to express themselves. Lockie Ferguson, Matthew Wade, Rashid Khan and David Miller are the four foreigners.

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:07 PM

    Playing XIs

    Lucknow Super Giants: KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock(w), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Krunal Pandya, Mohsin Khan, Ayush Badoni, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan

    Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade(w), Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya(c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Varun Aaron, Mohammed Shami

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 7:02 PM


    Hardik Pandya won the toss and Gujarat Titans have opted to bowl first. 

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 6:58 PM

    Pitch Report

    The pitch looks a bit dry compared to the one used in the IPL 2022 opener. The cracks have started to open up and that's where Rashid Khan will play a big role.

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 6:30 PM

    Ton Of 6s

    Hardik Pandya is just two sixes shy of completing 100 sixes in the history of IPL. If he manages to hit two sixes today, Hardik will be the 26th player to complete a century of sixes.  

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 6:00 PM

    Hear It From Captain Pandya

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 5:53 PM

    Missing Stars

    Lucknow Super Giants will be missing key overseas players like Jason Holder, Kyle Mayers and Marcus Stoinis. They are fulfilling national commitments. But LSG have enough Indian back-up to fill the gaps. Gujarat Titans may miss Jason Roy, who withdrew from IPL 2022.

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 5:52 PM

    Brother vs Brother

    For the first time since 2016, Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya will be in opposite camps. The 'cruel' retention policy did not allow Mumbai Indians to keep the Pandya brothers. On a different note, MI would never make Hardik captain!

  • 28 Mar 2022 / 5:50 PM

    Rashid Khan factor

    The Afghan star will be Hardik Pandya's deputy. Rashid's contest with KL Rahul should be interesting. Rahul has been dismissed thrice in 43 balls bowled by the leg-spinner.
