Both the teams would be playing their second game of the season and are coming up with a close victory in the first game.
Gujarat Titans began their season with a lot of positives on their side. Lockie Ferguson and Rashid Khan bowled tight stints in the middle overs, while Mohammed Shami bowled a magnificent spell. Hardik Pandya too bowled his four overs without incident. The only thing that troubled Gujarat was Varun Aaron’s 45-run outing in four overs. The middle-order carried the team to victory, demonstrating Gujarat’s middle-order strength.
For the Delhi Capitals, Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel put on a 75-run partnership in 30 balls, leading to Delhi’s victory in a tight scenario. Kuldeep Yadav also claimed three wickets for 18 runs and is back in form. The second match of the day will be an entertaining affair, with major benefits for both teams.
Predicted playing XI:
Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade (wk), Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya (C), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Varun Aaron, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
