GT IPL 2024

Both Teams Eyeing Momentum After Recent Victories

The upcoming match between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Delhi Capitals (DC) pits two teams on a mini-revival after suffering initial setbacks in the IPL season. While GT boasts a slight edge with one extra win, DC is determined to level the playing field.

Key Players in Focus

  • DC: Rishabh Pant has been consistent, but top-order needs to fire, especially David Warner. Youngster Jake Fraser-McGurk will be under pressure to deliver in Mitchell Marsh’s absence.
  • GT: The team misses Hardik Pandya and Mohammad Shami. Their recent win against Rajasthan Royals will be a confidence booster. However, their batting lineup lacks stability with David Miller’s availability uncertain.

Venue and Pitch Conditions

  • The match will be held at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where only one high-scoring game has been played in three attempts so far. Expect hot weather conditions.


  • GT leads the head-to-head record 2-1, but DC won their last encounter at this venue in a low-scoring thriller.

Team Watch

  • GT: David Miller’s return could force a reshuffle in the playing XI. Shubman Gill’s record against key DC bowlers like Ishant Sharma and Kuldeep Yadav is promising.
  • DC: Openers Prithvi Shaw and David Warner have an upper hand against most GT bowlers. Warner has a good record against Umesh Yadav despite dismissals.

Predicted Playing XIs

  • GT: Shubman Gill (C), Matthew Wade (WK), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, Rashid Khan, Sai Kishore, Umesh Yadav, Spencer Johnson (Impact Sub: Shahrukh Khan)
  • DC: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Rishabh Pant (C&WK), Shai Hope, Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma (Impact Sub: Abishek Porel)

Matchup to Watch Out For:

  • Can Shubman Gill capitalize on his record against key DC bowlers and provide a solid foundation for GT’s batting?

Overall, this match promises to be a close contest between two resurgent teams. The performance of top-order batsmen and effective bowling attacks will be crucial in determining the winner.
