GT vs SRH Match Preview

The Gujarat Titans' batting lineup heavily relies on Shubman Gill, making it somewhat unstable. While players like Wriddhiman Saha, Sai Sudharsan, and Vijay Shankar are all talented, Sudharsan appears to be the most likely to contribute significantly to match-winning performances. In this scenario, it might be beneficial to promote David Miller in the batting order to strengthen the top order with more quality.

Additionally, Azmatullah Omarzai can provide stability to the lower batting order alongside Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan.

When it comes to the bowling lineup, GT possesses exceptional talent in the form of Rashid Khan and Spencer Johnson. Rashid's capabilities are well-known, but Johnson also stands out from the rest. However, the remaining bowlers, including Mohit Sharma, Azmatullah Omarzai, and Sai Kishore, lack consistency.

The SRH team is witnessing a remarkable display of form from almost every batter. Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Aiden Markram, and Heinrich Klaasen are all exhibiting exceptional skills.

In such a situation, the pressure will be on Mayank Aggarwal as Rahul Tripathi eagerly awaits an opportunity to open the batting.

With the inclusion of Shahbaz Ahmed and Pat Cummins in the lineup, SRH possesses great depth. However, the team needs to address the issue with its bowling unit. In the past two matches, SRH has struggled to maintain control over the opposition batters.

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has had a dreadful start to IPL 2024, conceding nearly 13 runs per over. Umran Malik only bowled one over in the previous match, indicating that Pat Cummins lacks confidence in him. Whether it was due to the conditions or the specific matchup, if Cummins cannot rely on Umran Malik for consistent overs, he may be compelled to alter the team combination once again.

Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande, and Pat Cummins complete the bowling attack. Apart from Cummins, who has been outstanding in the two matches so far, every other SRH bowler has been expensive.


Weather Report

The weather forecast for Ahmedabad on match day is excellent. There is no rain predicted and we should have a pretty warm and dry day for cricket. 

Pitch Report

The average score batting first in Ahmedabad is 193 which is something around what teams will be aiming for. An average of 30 fours are hit in IPL matches at the Narendra Modi Stadium while the average number of sixes is 17. 

A high-scoring match is in store and that may favor the strong batting lineup of SRH.

Dream11 Prediction

We think SRH has a strong chance of keeping its winning momentum going. GT is weaker than in previous seasons and may be right to take down. SRH is being led by Pat Cummins, the man who can seemingly do no wrong and we are happy to back SRH to get over the line here. 

Top Picks

Abhishek Sharma - A brilliant batter, Sharma seems to have taken his game to the next level. He is striking the ball brilliantly and will be a real handful.

Rashid Khan - The only world-class bowler in the GT lineup and someonw who will be called on consistently to keep the opposition big hitters in check. 

Aiden markram - he has gone a bit under the radar with other big names around him but he is also a batter than can play a massive inning when in form.
