Venue Details | Pitch Report

The pitch in Delhi is expected to be a good one to bat. The average first-innings score over the last three IPL matches is 155. Although spinners have scalped the majority of the wickets over the last three IPL matches, there should be help available for the pacers. Nearly 30 percent of the wickets fell in the powerplay phase, indicating help was on offer with the new ball. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with dew likely to come into play as the match progresses.

DC vs GT | Team News

Delhi Capitals

The primary worry for DC is the composition of the Indian pace attack, which can be put as below par when Anrich Nortje isn't there to lead the attack. Chetan Sakariya and Mukesh Kumar are sincere cricketers but both lack the pace and variation required to trouble international quality batters consistently.

Khaleel Ahmed had a decent first game but his fielding has been an issue for years and those who have seen him at fielding sessions, know that he drops more aerial catches than he takes. The drop of Kyle Mayers had the most damaging effect in the opening game for Delhi. Hence, Nortje and his South African partner Lungi Ngidi, who both are still on national duty, are required as soon as possible.

Gujarat Titans

The defending champions have all their bases covered despite Kane Williamson getting ruled out of the tournament after a serious knee injury. Mohammed Shami and Pandya will pose a different challenge against DC. With Alzarri Joseph, Yash Dayal, and ever-consistent Rashid Khan for the company, it will be a challenge for DC batters.
