Earlier, Gujarat Titans won the toss and elected to bowl first against Lucknow Super Giants in their maiden IPL match at the Wankhede Stadium here on Monday.
Gujarat Titans skipper Hardak Pandya said one of the reasons he decided to bowl first was the dew that is likely to play a role in the match.
“It`s the first game, we want to see how the wicket plays,” Hardik said at the toss. “Also, the dew is a factor. One thing which is very clear is we are going to give all the guys full freedom, play freely and enjoy.”
Pandya said the four overseas players that they have picked for this match are Lockie Ferguson, Matthew Wade, Rashid Khan, and David Miller.
Lucknow skipper KL Rahul said he, too, would have chosen to bowl first if he had won the toss.
