Gujarat look to avoid wooden spoon
- UP have three wins and three losses
- GG in tussle with RCB to avoid bottom spot
Gujarat Giants come off a morale boosting win over Delhi Capitals in one of their recent fixtures, but their persistent issues with bat and ball have no obvious solution yet as was seen last match against RCB, where they lost despite a huge total. They have odds of 2.03 to beat UP Warriorz.
UP Warriorz, meanwhile, are on a high too, having beat table-toppers Mumbai Indians in their previous fixture. But they also lost to RCB the game before that, kind of summing up the mixed season they have had. UP have odds of 1.76 to win the game.
Who will step up for Gujarat Giants?
The Giants are almost certainly out of the race for a top three spot, and have problems in plenty. They put up a good total against RCB, but went on to lose by eight wickets,
Our pick: UPW have more bases covered and can be backed to win this game. Back UPW at 1.76 to win this one!
UP Warriorz have problems of their own but have found impressive individual performers here and there. The Giants, on the other hand, have found the benefit of having an in-form player with the injection of Laura Wolvaardt, whose form has been outstanding.
Keep an eye on…
Laura Wolvaardt is in outstanding form and has five fifties from her last seven T20 matches. The South African could be crucial as the Giants aim to jump away from the bottom spot.
Grace Harris wasn’t even a confirmed starter in this UP line-up, but has quickly turned into a valuable addition, time and again stepping up with the bat for her team.
