DC vs GT Today Match Prediction & Tips

Delhi Capitals vs Gujarat Titans T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Delhi Capitals will play Gujarat Titans in the 40th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 24th.

We are halfway into the tournament and both Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans find themselves in trouble. DC have three wins in eight matches and they need to win five out of their remaining six games to qualify for the playoffs. GT are slightly better placed, with four wins in eight games and they need four wins out of their six games left. 

As far as the performance is concerned, both teams have been fairly ordinary and it is no surprise to see them tottering in the lower half of the points table. The prime reasons for the teams’ shambolic show has been lack of performance from big players. For GT, the likes of Gill, Miller, Sudharsan have not lit up the tournament while Delhi suffered because of lack of runs from David Warner, Prithvi Shaw and other players. Bowling from both teams has also been average.

DC vs GT Match Toss Prediction

Toss could be crucial as defending a score could be tough in Delhi given the small boundaries and ground dimensions. Also, dew could play a role as well. 

DC vs GT Pitch Report

The wicket at the Arun Jaitley Stadium is a belter. The last match between SRH and DC was the first game played in IPL 2024 at the venue and it saw over 550 runs being scored. A score of around 200 is a must here batting first.

Delhi Weather Report

It will be a hot evening and temperature will be in the early 30s. The humidity will be 17 per cent while wind speed will be 16 km/h.

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Mitchell Marsh has confirmed he won’t be returning to India for remainder of IPL so that is a blow to DC. Also, Ishant Sharma missed the last game due to injury and he is likely to get back into the playing XI, with Mukesh Kumar going out. Anrich Nortje has been expensive but DC don’t have much apt replacements available. 

DC Key Players

  • Jake Frazer McGurk – Jake Frazer McGurk has set the stage on fire with his blistering stroke play. He scored his second consecutive fifty of IPL 2024 after he blasted 65 in 18 balls against SRH. McGurk has a record of fastest century in 29 balls and he would look to break that record in IPL given how well he is striking the ball.
  • Rishabh Pant –  Rishabh Pant has scored 254 runs in eight games this season. Though far from his best, Pant has played a few good innings for his team. Delhi need Pant at his best if they are to scrip a turnaround.
  • Kuldeep Yadav – Kuldeep Yadav has bowled his heart out this season. SRH was set for a 300+ score in the last game had not Kuldeep turned the game on his head. He took 4 wickets for 55 runs to save Capitals from massive embarrassment. Kuldeep has taken 10 wickets in five games this season.
  • Axar Patel – Axar is a valuable addition to any team. He is very good with his lines and thus does not go for much runs while he also adds handy runs down the order. 

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Shai Hope,  Abishek Porel, Sumit Kumar, Praveen Dubey, Rasikh Salam

DC will mostly use Abishek Porel as impact player as they have done in most IPL games. Rasikh Salam can be used if they play an extra batter and then use his services when they come into bowl.

DC Team Form

The Capitals have been ordinary, winning just three out of the eight games.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Jake Frazer McGurk, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav,  Kuldeep Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

The Titans are likely to play an unchanged team. They had an opportunity to play Josh Little in last game but they opted for Azmatullah Omarzai, maybe because of his all-round abilities. Now since they made the changes in last game, we don’t see them tinkering with the combination in next game.

GT Key Players

  • Shubman Gill – Shubman Gill scored 35 in the last game against PBKS but he looked scratchy. He has played a couple of decent knocks of 89 and 72 but has not looked a player who scored over 800 runs last season. Gill needs to find his mojo back if GT need to scrip a turnaround.
  • Rahul Tewatia – Tewatia helped GT fetch another win after he scored 36 in 18 against PBKS. He has been the most consistent performer for GT but the team has not used him wisely. Given his form, he could have been promoted up the batting order. Maybe in the next game, we could see him batting slightly above.
  • Rashid Khan –  Rashid Khan bowled a great spell of 1-15 against PBKS. Rashid seems be to getting his rhythm back and that is a great news for the Titans because there is no bigger match winner for GT with the ball than Rashid Khan. 
  • Mohit Sharma –  Mohit Sharma has done well with the ball. He has taken 10 wickets in eight games for the team and is Titans’ highest wicket-taker this season.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Vijay Shankar, Sai Sudharsan, Manav Suthar, Darshan Nalkande, Sharath Br

Sai Sudharsan has been used as an impact player and given his consistent returns; he will once again be playing as an impact player for GT in next game.

GT Team Form

Gujarat Titans have played eight games, winning four and losing as many.

GT Predicted Playing 11

Shubman Gill (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Shahrukh Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Warrier, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, Sai Kishore

DC vs GT Betting Odds

The betting sites are backing Gujarat Titans to win at odds of 1.78 as compared to 2.04 to Delhi Capitals. Both teams have been ordinary but since GT have won more games this season, they are deemed as favourites.

Who will win Delhi Capitals vs Gujarat Titans T20 Match?

We, however, would suggest backing DC to win. The Titans have lacked firepower in batting. Gill is not in great form while Sudharsan has failed to play with intent. Miller has not scored much runs either. DC on the other hand have players like Warner, McGurk and Pant, who can help the team post or chase big runs.

🏆 DC vs GT Prediction

We are backing Delhi Capitals to win. The Shubman Gill-led side lack quality in batting, especially with Gill and Miller not in great form. They lack the explosive firepower thus we doubt they would score big runs if Gill fails to fire. For DC, they are a top heavy side and the inclusion of Jake Frazer McGurk comes as a shot in the arm. DC’s batting gives them an edge over GT thus DC are favourites for us.
