Pitch & Weather Report

The pitch of the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has changed a lot. It was a solid batting pitch but black soil has been used and now it helps the slower bowlers. Batters will have to score runs in the powerplay because, with the progression of the match, the wicket will get slower and tricky for batting. The average 1st innings total in T20 internationals is 160 while the 2nd innings total is 140. The Gujarat Stadium has hosted 10 T20I games in the past. Out of those, the team batting first won 6 times and the team bowling first won 4 games. 

The temperature will be around 37 degrees in Ahmedabad. There is no chance of rain.

Team News

Gujarat Titans

GT are coming into the match after a terrible performance in the last game against CSK. The bowling was poor so was the batting. Umesh Yadav, Omarzai, and Rashid Khan leaked runs cheaply while Mohit Sharma, Sai Kishore, and Spencer Johnson just conceded at an understandable economy. None of them were up to the mark and it caused the problem.

As for the batting, Wriddhiman Saha once again tried to provide his side with a solid start but failed. Shubman Gill also couldn't add much to the scoreboard. Vijay Shankar, Omarzai, David Miller, and Rahul Tewatia added just 50 runs in total together. Only Sai Sudharsan stepped up and played a mature inning but he also couldn't go long as there was no help from the other end.

If GT wants to win the match against SRH, they'll have to bring something new to the table. They are not looking like a strong team at the moment. Rashid Khan will have to improve and lead the bowling unit while Omarzai needs to concede less at least as he bowls in the powerplay. Mohit Sharma is not performing like last season but he is still good to bowl the death overs. Spencer is young so it is not wrong to say that he will improve with time. Sai Kishore is inconsistent so the skipper will be hoping he bowls his spell according to the situation as he mostly bowls in the middle overs.

Wriddhiman Saha has to score big in this match while Gill also needs to bring some consistency in his game. Sudharsan has scored runs in the last two games and he knows how to bat according to the situation. David Miller and Vijay Shankar will try to score some runs as the middle order is looking too thin at the moment. Otherwise, they will have to bring Kane Williamson in place of David Miller in the XI. Tewatia can hit big sixes but the fans haven't seen him do so for a long time. Gujarat doesn't have many options in their batting unit so it will be difficult if the current batters fail to deliver performances regularly.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH broke the record for the highest run in an inning in IPL history during their second game of the season. They are coming into this match after a solid batting performance and it will be a huge task for the Gujarat bowlers to stop the Hyderabad batters from scoring. Travis Head, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, and Abhishek Sharma led the team to 277 in their previous game. The batters hit 19 fours and 18 sixes against MI which is just wild in any format of Cricket.

It was a solid batting pitch so the bowlers proved expensive but Pat Cummings is leading the side in the right direction. He rotated the bowlers really well so if the Gujarat pitch provides help to the batters, it will be very tough for the home side to keep up with the high-flying SRH. SRH are expected to play with the same XI against Gujarat. Mayank Agarwal and Travis Head will open the inning while Abhishek Sharma and Aiden Markram will come to bat at no 3 and 4 respectively. The finishing role will be upon Klaasen and Samad and we must not forget that Pat Cummins can also bat just like a proper all-rounder.

All the bowlers went for so many runs in their spells against Mumbai and they also faltered against KKR in the death overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is struggling to find his line and length while Unadkat picked up wickets but he has to stop giving runs so easily. Umran hasn't bowled too many overs this season so far and he hasn't improved either. Hasaranga is not fit to play yet and there's a possibility that he might not appear for the side too. Pat Cummins will lead the pace attack and will be hoping the other bowlers to give their best but it is expected that they will get some help from the Narendra Modi Stadium pitch.
