It’s the game between the table toppers and the team at the bottom of the points table – Gujarat vs Delhi. Gujarat is at the top of the points table with 6 wins in 8 matches. They are in excellent form as a team with their bowlers and batters performing very consistently. They will be eyeing another win in this match.
Delhi Capitals, meanwhile, are at the bottom of the points table. They have won only 2 games out of 8 they’ve played until now. They won two games in a row but then lost the last one. Their batters showed some promise in the last match and the bowlers are in decent form as well. Delhi will have to be on their toes if they are to win this game.
Wriddhiman Saha’s form is a concern for them at the top but apart from that, the batting unit looks very settled and in excellent form. The likes of Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, David Miller and Vijay Shankar are in great form. Abhinav Manohar has been is in good touch as well. They have Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan can also bat.
The bowlers are in terrific form at the moment. Mohammed Shami is picking up wickets consistently and Rashid Khan is consistent as ever. Noor Ahmad has added a different dimension to their bowling. Joshua Little bowled well in the last game. Mohit Sharma has picked wickets and Hardik is also in a good rhythm. Gujarat is playing like the defending champions this season.
Phil Salt and Mitchell Marsh scored 59 and 63 runs respectively in the last game. It’s a great sign for Delhi as no one except David Warner was scoring runs for them. The Indian batters must step-up with the bat for Delhi. Axar Patel is in good touch in the lower order. They need to bat positively and perform as a group to give themselves a chance of winning this match.
Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje and Ishant Sharma are in good form with the ball. Mitchell Marsh picked up 4 wickets in the last game which is a good thing for his team. Mukesh Kumar was expensive in the last game. Delhi needs consistency from their players which they’ve lacked until now.
There will be good help for the Pacers with the new ball. It will get better for batting as the game progresses and the spinners will get some assistance as well, especially in the first innings. Teams will prefer chasing as the chasing sides have won 3 out of 4 matches played here. Scores in the range of 150-170 are expected.
