The upcoming match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will be the third time both teams compete at this venue with Gujarat and Chennai winning one each.

Gujarat Titans (GT) Overview:

Following two fruitful seasons, GT find themselves in a significant slump, occupying the bottom position in the IPL table with just four wins to their name. Despite their triumph in 2022, the team’s batting performance has been lackluster, with only Shubhman Gill and Sai Sudharshan making notable contributions with the bat. On the bowling front, while the GT spinners have shown promise, the pace attack has failed to deliver consistently. In their recent outing, GT suffered a defeat against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), succumbing to a four-wicket loss.

Wriddhiman Saha
Shubman Gill
Sai Sudarshan
Abhinav Manohar
David Miller
Rahul Tewatia
Shahrukh Khan
Rashid Khan
Mohit Sharma
Sai Kishore
Spencer Johnson

A closure look:

Saha and Gill provide a solid start at the top of the order, while Sudarshan and Manohar offer stability in the middle overs. Miller and Tewatia bring power-hitting abilities to the team, capable of accelerating the run rate when needed. Shahrukh’s finishing skills add depth to the batting lineup.
