A historic day awaits IPL fans in the 15th edition of the league as two new teams – Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants – are going to take each other on in their first-ever clash at the Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium.
Hardik Pandya, who played earlier for Mumbai Indians, will be leading Titans and this is the first match for him as the captain of any cricket team.
His rival is his good friend KL Rahul, who is captaining the Lucknow side. Rahul has led Punjab Kings in the past two editions without much success and will be looking to set things right when he begins a fresh journey with LSG.
