Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson and R Sai Kishore should be handling the bowling duties for the Gujarat side.
For Lucknow, South African wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock is expected to open the innings with skipper Rahul. LSG will miss the services of Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder, as a result will rely on Evin Lewis and Andrew Tye as their foreign recruits.
