In the match 44 of the Indian Premier League 2023, set to be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat Titans will take on Delhi Capitals. The hosts GT go into this contest after chasing down yet another daunting total quite easily, this time against KKR in Kolkata. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals lost to SRH at home in a back-and-forth encounter. In the upcoming clash between these top and bottom sides on the IPL points ladder, Gujarat Titans will fancy their chances to achieve a comprehensive win against Delhi Capitals.
Gujarat Titans batting lineup is arguably the most consistent one in this year’s edition of the IPL. From Shubman Gill in the opening position to captain Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, David Miller in the middle order to Rahul Tewatia and Abhinav Manohar in the lower middle order, the runs are flowing from all the batters in the team. In the bowling department, Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan are leading the pack, while Noor Ahmad and Mohit Sharma have been a couple of good value additions to the GT side too.
Delhi Capitals are finally getting some runs at the top of the order as Phil Salt and Mitchell Marsh have stepped up alongside the captain David Warner. But their middle order is still short of quality scores and the services of Axar Patel are being wasted at number 7 in the batting order. With the ball, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel are making key contributions, but the fast-bowling attack for DC has been quite inconsistent right throughout this IPL.
