Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya wrote their names within the historic books as the primary set of brothers to captain opposing sides in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 encounter as Gujarat Titans tackle Lucknow Super Giants on Sunday. While Hardik guided GT to the IPL title of their debut season final 12 months, Krunal has taken over the LSG captaincy within the absence of KL Rahul. While the brothers have confronted one another as opponents earlier, that is the primary time that they are going to face off as captains.
Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) captain Krunal Pandya received the toss and opted to bowl first.
“We will bowl first. It’s a dream come true for us, leading our respective sides. Overall the wicket will play the same. We have a good batting side, and we fancy our chance to chase down the total. We have played good cricket, and we stand at a good stage in the points table. de Kock is in, Naveen misses out,” Lucknow Super Giants captain Krunal Pandya stated on the time of toss.
“We would have batted. I got what I wanted. It’s an emotional day, our father would have been proud. This is something happening for the first time, so our family is proud. One Pandya will definitely win today. It’s about expressing ourselves and not worry about the result. The fear of failure might creep in, but we need to play good cricket.
