Delhi need to regroup during a disastrous season
- Pacers the key for Delhi to stop Gujarat
- Focus on Gujarat’s batting group led by Gill
Gujarat has won both their previous encounters against Delhi in this season, and will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten record against the Capitals while also building on their form this season. Gujarat Titans have odds of 1.67 to beat Delhi Capitals.
Delhi appear listless this year and this is down to multiple factors including injuries, poor team construction and out of form players. But now seems too late for them to redeem their season, let alone beat a strong side like Gujarat. Delhi Capitals have odds of 2.17 to beat Gujarat Titans.
Head-to-head record, GT v DC
Gujarat Titans have won both their matches against Delhi Capitals in the IPL including a six-wicket win earlier this season when Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan shone.
The team winning the toss will be looking to bat first and set a good target on the board, considering the good batting conditions expected.
Based on current form and head-to-head record, Gujarat Titans have an edge over Delhi Capitals. They have a win probability over 65%.
The average score at the Narendra Modi Stadium in IPL 2023 has been around 160-170, but if we get good batting conditions expected, we could see a higher score in this match.
