The Gujarat Giants will be locking horns against the India Capitals in the Eliminator of the Legends League Cricket 2023. Lalbhai Contractor Stadium in Surat will be hosting this exciting clash on Wednesday.

The Gujarat Giants grabbed three wins out of five in the league stages. They lost one game and one was washed out due to rain. They beat the Southern Super Stars in their last game to qualify for the playoffs and will be looking to carry forward the winning momentum.

After electing to bowl first, the Giants did a very good job of restricting the Super Stars to 159/8, with Trent Johnston finishing with three scalps. In reply, Abhishek Jhunjhunwala played a brilliant knock of 81 off 49 balls to help his side chase down the total in the penultimate over.

The India Capitals, on the other hand, struggled in the league stages. They won only a single game, lost three and one was abandoned before qualifying for the playoffs with a higher net run rate. They are coming off a loss in their previous game and will look to turn the tables around.

On the back of an unbeaten 65 from Bharath Chipli, the Capitals posted 186 on the board. The bowlers picked up six wickets and took the game to the last over but failed to hold their nerves as the Tigers got across the line with one ball to spare.
