#IPL2022, GTvsLSG: Gujarat Titans win the toss, opt to bowl


Mumbai: Hardik Pandya has won the toss in his first game of the Indian Premier League and has chosen to field against Lucknow Super Giants.

We are going to bowl. First game we want to see how exactly the wickets are playing and keeping the dew factor as well. See, assess and go through from there. It is always special to play in Wankhede because I have had some amazing memories here. It is a different role, different team but the feeling is same. We want to win here and let’s see how it goes. We are going to give all the guys full freedom to express themselves. Lockie, Wade, Rashid and Miller are the four foreigner players.”, said Hardik Pandya after the toss.

“There isn’t much to talk about because everyone knows what we need to do in T20s. We have been playing continuously and have been in rhythm. It is a new season, a new franchise and hopefully a good result. Pandya is very different. He is getting responsible now. Earlier he used to be in his own mood, but now he is getting responsible and is talking to the players as well. Both teams are new and both of them would want to give more than 100%. But you need to prepare according to the wicket and the ground,” ahead of the toss.
