This is Gujarat Titans' first ever season in the IPL and in the previous match between these two teams, SRH earned a comfortable victory by 8 wickets over Gujarat Titans.
Team News And Tournament So Far
Sunrisers Hyderabad's top four batsmen were removed for single-digit scores at 37/5 in their 211-run chase against Rajasthan Royals. Aiden Markram's (57* runs), Wahington Sundar's (40 runs), and Romario Shepherd's (24 runs) contributions helped them reach 149/8 in 20 overs. Players with more experience, such as Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, and Rahul Tripathi, must step up with the bat.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly for 4-0-29-1 and was unlucky not to earn additional wickets owing to no-balls. Romario Shepherd, Umran Malik, and T Natarajan each grabbed five wickets but came at a cost. The spin department is mainly reliant on Washington Sundar, with assistance from Abdul Samad, Aiden Markram, and Abhishek Sharma.
SRH completely changed their season around after their 3rd match, with 5 consecutive wins to drive them straight to the top 2 of the table. They are the form team of the tournament, and will take some stopping.
SunRisers Hyderabad’s Predicted XI:- Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Romario Shepherd, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik.
The Gujarat Titans, the other new IPL 2022 team, have also done well to build a formidable squad. The most notable acquisition for the Gujarat franchise for their first IPL season was Afghanistan leg spinner Rashid Khan, arguably the best T20I bowler in the world, who has left Sunrisers Hyderabad to spearhead the Titans’ bowling attack, which also includes Indian pacer Mohammed Shami and Kiwi pacer Lockie Ferguson.
In contrast, England's white-ball specialist opener Jason Roy's departure from the IPL 2022 prompted the Gujarat Titans to sign another Afghanistan star, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, as his replacement, while all-rounders Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, and Rahul Tewatia give balance to the side.
In Gujarat Titan’s first match against Lucknow Super Giants, veteran pacer Mohammed Shami (3/25) bowled a blazing opening spell that knocked the wind out of the Lucknow Super Giants' top order before Deepak Hooda (55 off 41 balls) and Ayush Badoni (54 off 41 balls) hit fifties to help Lucknow score 158 for six.
The Gujarat Titans were then led over the line by skipper Hardik Pandya (33), all-rounder Rahul Tewatia (40 not out), Matthew Wade (30), and David Miller (30), for a stunning victory in their first ever IPL match. Though they lost their second match, GT bounced back brilliantly to defeat the Delhi Capitals in their third match for 3 wins in 3 matches.
GT are currently on top of the league table having lost only 1 match so far. They are the only team in the league with 6 wins already, and have 4 wins in their last 5 matches.
Gujarat Titans probable playing XI : Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade, Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya (capt), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Varun Aaron, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami.
Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction
To Win The Match
The Gujarat Titans have odds of 1.90 to win this match, which could be quite tempting as they looked really solid all season. SRH have won 5 matches in a row and have attractive odds of 2.05 to win their 6th on the trot.
Top Team Batsman
The Gujarat Titans have many solid batsmen up the order as well, with Shubhman Gill the favourite to be the top scorer at 3.25 after his stunning innings in the previous 2 matches, followed by fellow opener Mathew Wade at 4.00.
SRH captain Kane Williamson is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 3.60. His opening partner Markram has odds of 4.00. Nicholas Pooran has odds of 5.50 to be the top batsman.
Highest Opening Partnership
Gujarat Titans are favourites at 1.90 to have the highest opening partnership as they have Mathew Wade and Shubhman Gill as their openers, and Gill has been one of the most in-form openers in the league so far. SRH haven't had a successful opening pairing as such yet, though Abhishek Sharma is in good form.
Top Team Bowler
Rashid Khan is the clear favourite from GT to be their top bowler with odds of 3.75, while Lockie Ferguson had a great outing in the previous match and also has odds of 3.75.
Natarajan has been on fire with 15 wickets already, and is SRH’s favourite to be the top team bowler at 3.25, followed by Bhuvaneshwar at 4.33.
Total Runs In The Match
Odds of there being more than 339.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per 10Cric. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.
Individual Player Betting
- Mathew Wade to score more than 23.5 runs also has odds of 1.83, which can be a smart bet as he is a consistent opener. Kane Williamson to score more than 26.5 runs has odds of 1.83 , which is a tempting bet as he is their most consistent batsman.
- SRH to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.10, which could be attractive odds, especially if their openers get firing. While GT have players like Wade and Hardik Pandya who can hit big, and have odds of 1.90.
- Rashid Khan to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.25, while Natarahan to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.10.
