Gujarat Titans vs Delhi Capitals – Match Predictions

Eight points separate these teams and it looks like being a very tough assignment for Delhi Capitals at the Narendra Modi Stadium against one of the strongest IPL squads. Gujarat Titans have won three in a row and we are backing them to make it four!

Probable 6s

Although Gujarat Titans top the table, they find themselves down in eighth place when it comes to the average number of sixes they hit per game. But it is Delhi Capitals who are bottom of the league and in the six-hitting stakes! The Titans have big hitters such as David Miller, Hardik Pandya and Shubman Gill in form whereas Delhi Capitals’ Mr Aggresor, David Warner, has hit only one six all season. We are backing the hosts to clear the ropes the most.

Our prediction: Gujarat Titans to hit most sixes in the match at 4/7 (1.57).

Probable Wickets

With a fantastic record in the IPL, the PSL, the BBL and plenty of other tournaments across the globe, it was a surprise to see Rashid Khan return figures of 0-54 against Kolkata Knight Riders in the last game. However, he is a top level operator and we expect him to return to form as Gujarat’s top wicket taker in this clash.

Our prediction: Rashid Khan to be Gujarat Titans’ top wicket-taker at 11/4 (3.75).

Man of the Match

With four scores of 40+ from his last five innings, including two half-centuries, and a fine 2023 at international level, it is fair to say that Shubman Gill is playing the best cricket of his life. He made only 14 runs when the teams went head to head earlier in the tournament and we expect him to make amends with the top performance of any player on either side in this game.

Our prediction: Shubman Gill to be the Man of the Match at 7/1 (8.00).

Gujarat Titans vs Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals are still searching for their first win over Gujarat Titans and this will be their third attempt. When they met earlier in the campaign, Gujarat won easily by six wickets with 11 balls remaining.

Gujarat Titans

In a team and tournament full of international superstars, it was refreshing to see Ireland’s Josh Little take the Player of the Match Award on Saturday after picking up two wickets during a consistent bowling display. With no injuries in the squad, we expect to see Hardik Pandya name an unchanged XI.

Predicted XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya (c), Bijay Shankar, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, Josh Little

Delhi Capitals

There was an IPL debut for Priyam Garg ahead of Delhi Capitals rematch with Sunrisers Hyderabad on Saturday. Garg hit a boundary and should have done enough to retain his place, as has English keeper-batter Phil Salt who hit 59 runs from 35 balls, an innings which included nine boundaries.

Predicted XI: David Warner (c), Phil Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma
