Delhi Capitals hinge on x-factor players
- Gujarat Titans have the Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson advantage
- Delhi Capitals hope for better ammunition in batting
Delhi Capitals will continue to miss prominent names as they take on Gujarat Titans in what should be an exciting contest in the double header on Saturday. While Rishabh Pant and Prithvi Shaw remain key for DC, they will still need a lot of things to go their way to beat GT. Delhi’s odds of winning stand at 1.62
Meanwhile, Gujarat Titans have a brilliant bowling attack led by Rashid Khan and Lockie Ferguson and have odds of 2.25 to win this match. Despite their batting not being up to scratch, Gujarat have the line-up to counter a second-string Delhi side.
Can Rishabh Pant fire for Delhi?
Rishabh Pant has had two mediocre seasons for Delhi Capitals and haven’t really hit the straps in this format for India either. Delhi are still hugely reliant on Pant to do well in this contest, especially given the huge threat the likes of Rashid and Ferguson pose.
Gujarat Titans have built their team around two fabulous bowlers and are favourites to win this match.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
Delhi Capitals beat Mumbai Indians in their first game, while Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans won over Lucknow Super Giants to get off the mark in the tournament. Both teams weren’t entirely convincing in their wins and will hope to put up a better show this game.
Keep an eye on…
Hardik Pandya: Pandya batted up the order in the match against Lucknow Super Giants and he could continue to do so when these teams face with Delhi Capitals having a less-than-ideal bowling attack to counter the big hitting all-rounder.
Rishabh Pant: The Delhi wicket-keeper and middle-order batter will be crucial if they are to beat the Rashid Khan overs in the middle and the battle between Pant and the Afghanistan spinner could decide this contest.
TIP: A top-order role for Hardik Pandya is exciting and should make him a candidate to be the top batter for Gujarat. Back Hardik Pandya at 5.12 to be the top batter for GT!
