Sunrisers after coming from a stunning victory against Chennai Super Kings will be facing a rock solid team like Gujarat who remain to be the only team to have not lost a single match in this IPL 2022 tournament. SRH’s major problem has been with their batting depth which remains to be a major factor for their poor performance in IPL since 2021.
But this time around they have got aggressive players like Tripathi and Pooran to have some fire power in the middle order while Aiden Markram could play a beautiful anchor role for his side. Washington Sundar’s addition to the setup has also been a brilliant move by the team management.
Gujarat Titans have versatile players in the setup who could adapt for different types of situation to win games for their team. Shubman Gill’s consistency at the top order has helped them to post a good total on board in their last two matches while all-rounders like skipper Hardik Pandya and Rahul Tewatia have been backbone of the team to lift the morale of the side.
Newcomer Sai Sudharsan has looked impressive with bat while bowling department of Gujarat has players like Ferguson, Shami and Rashid Khan to challenge the opponents.
It will be interesting to see whether Gujarat will their 4th game on row (or) Hyderabad could be the first team to threaten the Gujarat side in this IPL season.
