Gujarat Titans vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Gujarat Titans take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru in Match 45 of the 2024 Indian Premier League at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Titans begin this game on eight points, four points ahead of RCB who are currently at the bottom of the table. Read on as we preview this fixture. This match gets underway in Ahmedabad at 15:30 local time on Sunday 28th April.

Gujarat Titans have been one of the most inconsistent sides in this year’s IPL so far and they lost a very tight contest against Delhi Capitals in their last match. However, they have plenty of batting depth and they will fancy their chances against RCB at home.

After a miserable losing run, RCB finally got back to winning ways when they beat a very strong Sunrisers Hyderabad side on Thursday. There certainly seems to have been a turnaround in form after they narrowly lost their previous match but they will now need to make it three strong performances in a row to be competitive.

GT vs RCB Match Toss Prediction

With 17 of the 31 IPL fixtures at the Narendra Modi Stadium won by the team fielding first, we predict that both captains will walk out to the toss planning to bowl first if they win the toss.

GT vs RCB Pitch Report

Although we saw only 181 runs and 14 wickets fall on this pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium in the last game, it is not a bad batting surface. A par score is at least 180 and there is not a huge amount of spin for the slow bowlers to work with so they may be used as a defensive option on this pitch.

Ahmedabad Weather Report

The weather forecast is for clear skies throughout this contest on Sunday afternoon with the temperature likely to be over 35 degrees from start to finish. Low humidity levels and no rain are expected.

GT Team News & Playing 11

GT Team News

Captain Shubman Gill announced no changes at the toss ahead of their narrow defeat against Delhi Capitals and it would be no surprise to see the same XI for this game. Mohit Sharma will be under scrutiny after conceding 73 runs in the last match but has been good at this venue. 

GT Key Players

  • Sai Sudharsan- the 22 year old has been very consistent in IPL 2024 although his half-century in the last game was the first time he had passed fifty. He will be looking forward to taking on the RCB bowlers.
  • Shubman Gill- the skipper has already scored over 300 runs in this year’s IPL but he will need a run of very high scores if he is to top his 890 runs from the 2023 tournament.
  • Rashid Khan- the bowling all-rounder struggled with his length in the last game but once again produced a brilliant batting cameo at the end of the innings with 21 not out from 11 balls.
  • Sandeep Warrier- the experienced right-arm medium pacer got the key wickets of Jake Fraser-McGurk and Prithvi Shaw in the same over before returning to get Shai Hope against Delhi Capitals.

GT Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sharath BR, Manav Suthar, Darshan Nalkande, Vijay Shankar, Sandeep Warrier.

Sandeep Warrier put in an excellent bowling performance during the fielding innings against Delhi Capitals so we expect him to be used in the same role in this game with Sai Sudharsan the likely player to only be used in the batting innings.

GT Team Form

Gujarat Titans come into this match after two wins and two defeats from their last four games.

GT Predicted Playing 11

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

RCB Team News & Playing 11

RCB Team News

The experienced wicket-keeper and in-form batter Dinesh Karthik had to leave the field with four overs remaining of the win against Sunrisers Hyderabad with a hand injury and it looks like being a race against time to see if he will be fit enough to play in this match.

RCB Key Players

  • Virat Kohli- there are still question marks over his strike-rate but the opener is the leading run scorer in the tournament with an average of 61.43 and a strike-rate of 145.76.
  • Rajat Patidar- the 30 year old right-hander took the Player of the Match Award after a brilliant 50 runs from 20 balls which shifted the momentum against Sunrisers.
  • Cameron Green- the Australian all-rounder produced a brilliant display in the last game with 37 not out from 20 balls and then took 2/12 from his two overs with the ball.
  • Karn Sharma- the spinner took wickets five and six in Thursday’s victory and ensured that RCB were able to finally get up to four points in the table.

RCB Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Suyash Prabhudessai, Anuj Rawat, Himanshu Sharma, Vijaykumar Vyshak, Swapnil Singh

Slow left-arm orthodox bowler Swapnil Singh came into the team and performed well against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Rajat Patidar was substituted out and is very likely to be used in the batting innings once more.

RCB Team Form

After six successive defeats, RCB returned to winning ways with a 35 run victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

RCB Predicted Playing 11

Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis (c), Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, Mahipal Lomror, Dinesh Karthik (wk) / Anuj Rawat, Karn Sharma, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Siraj
