GT vs DC Today Match Prediction & Tips

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

Gujarat Titans will play Delhi Capitals in the 32nd match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 17th.

Fresh from a win over Rajasthan Royals, Gujarat Titans will aim to move up the points table. GT have blown hot and cold, having won three and losing three games. At least two of the three wins for GT – against MI and RR, were not convincing and the team was set to lose the game before the final moment brilliance saw the team home. GT need to get on a roll now if they are to have a realistic chance of reaching the playoffs. One of the major concerns for GT has been the lack of runs from the top order that has looked fairly ordinary, especially with Shubman Gill not scoring consistently.

Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals are no different. The team has played six matches, winning two and losing four. The Capitals also have been inconsistent with the bat, however, they made a few changes to their batting in the previous game against LSG and it worked well as they cruised to a win by six wickets while chasing 168 on a tough wicket. It will be interesting to see if it was a one-off performance or they have finally got a combination that could put oppositions under tremendous pressure.

GT vs DC Match Toss Prediction

Punjab Kings chased 200 in the last match played here thus captain winning the toss should opt to bowl first.

GT vs DC Pitch Report

The wicket at the Narendra Modi Stadium should be a good wicket to bat. Runs in the powerplay will be crucial as the wicket will help the spinners when the ball gets old. A set batter should find it easier to score runs but a batter new at the crease might find it a tad tough given the slowness of the surface.

Ahmedabad Weather Report

It will be a hot day with temperature crossing the 40 degree mark. Evening will be slightly cooler at 30 degrees. The humidity will be 22 per cent while the wind speed will be 13 kmph.

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

The absence of a match winner like David Miller has hurt Gujarat Titans but Miller is likely to get fit before the clash against Delhi Capitals. GT pacer Spencer Johnson while speaking ahead of Rajasthan Royals clash had confirmed that Miller will be available for the DC game; however, there has been no official update about the same.

GT Key Players

  • Shubman Gill – Shubman Gill has not been at his best in IPL 2024 but he has played a couple of decent innings, including a 72 run knock against the Rajasthan Royals. Gill is one of the mainstays of Gujarat Titans thus he has to be in full flow in most games if GT have to make a big impact in the tournament.
  • Sai Sudharsan – Sai Sudharshan is another pillar of Gujarat Titans’ batting. Sudharsan has been mighty impressive for GT this season, scoring 226 runs; however, his strike rate has been a cause of concern. We don’t expect Sudharsan to play like Heinrich Klassen or Andre Russell thus other batters need to chip in with fiery cameos and allow Sudharsan to anchor the innings.
  • Rashid Khan –  Rashid Khan once again proved his match winning skills as he scored 24 in 11 balls to help GT chase 197 from a near impossible situation against RR. Rashid also bowled a top spell of 1-18 in four overs.
  • Mohit Sharma –  Mohit Sharma has done really well while playing at home where the conditions favour slower bowlers. Mohit has taken eight wickets this season and most of the wickets have come at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Shahrukh Khan, Manav Suthar, Darshan Nalkande, Sharath Br

Shahrukh Khan will be used as an impact player if GT are chasing or they need a batter in case they lose the plot while batting in the first innings. Sai Kishore or Manav Suthar can be used if GT require a bowler.

Gujarat Titans have played six games, winning three and losing three matches

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Mitchell Marsh has flown to Australia due to injury and he is unlikely to return to the remainder of the IPL. The Capitals played Jake Frazer McGurk and he made an immediate impact with a fiery half century. Also, the team got Shai Hope in the playing XI while Kuldeep Yadav made a return after an injury. The Capitals now look a much balanced team and should step on the park with an unchanged combination. 

DC Key Players

  • David Warner – David Warner started the tournament on a positive note but has ran out of gas in the last few games. Warner is very important to Delhi Capitals campaign as he is someone if gets on a roll can be hard to stop. With no Mitchell Marsh, Warner’s responsibility increases manifold.
  • Jake Frazer McGurk – Jake Frazer McGurk made an immediate impact after being drafted into the Capitals playing XI and scored 55 in 35 balls against LSG. McGurk is known for his hitting abilities and has a 29 ball hundred to his name in T20 cricket. His inclusion has come as a shot in the arm for DC.
  • Rishabh Pant –  Rishabh Pant has batted beautifully so far in IPL 2024. He has played some terrific knocks for his side and batted as if he was never away from the game. Pant has scored 194 runs, including a couple of fifties.
  • Kuldeep Yadav – Kuldeep Yadav is Delhi Capitals’ biggest match winner with the ball and he once again proved his worth with a three wicket haul against LSG. Kuldeep has taken six wickets in three matches this season.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Jhye Richardson, Abishek Porel, Sumit Kumar, Praveen Dubey, Kumar Kushagra

DC will likely use Jhye Richardson as impact player as their bowling is slightly on the weaker side, however, if they need a batter, they will use Abishek Porel.

DC Team Form

The Capitals have struggled in the tournament so far, losing four out of the six games.

DC Predicted Playing 11

Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed

GT vs DC Betting Odds

The betting sites are backing Gujarat Titans as favourites, with odds of 1.73. It’s a fair deal given Titans great record at home.

Who will win Gujarat Titans vs Delhi Capitals T20 Match?

We suggest backing Titans to win. GT have done remarkably well at home this season, winning two and losing just one game. Also, runs from Shubman Gill in the previous game while the likely return of David Miller boosts their chances. The Capitals also look good but the team has been inconsistent thus GT are a safer bet in comparison to DC.

🏆 GT vs DC Prediction

We are backing Gujarat Titans to win. The Shubman Gill-led side has a home advantage and the team generally plays well here. Gill himself has a great record in Ahmedabad while the pitch is also favourable for the spinners like Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed. Delhi Capitals look decent on paper but the team has been inconsistent. Gujarat Titans should win the match.
