It has been a very impressive tournament for the Gujarat Titans so far winning matches consistently. They look odds-on favourites to reach the playoffs and another win here will put them much closer to confirming their top-four spot. Delhi Capitals on the other hand have been struggling for wins and another loss here will make it almost impossible to qualify. Regardless, it is the Titans who look well-placed to start well. I am backing Gujarat Titans to post the highest opening partnership.

  • Gujarat Titans have posted the highest opening partnership in 5 of their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have conceded the highest opening partnership in 5 of their last 6 matches (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have won 4 of their last 5 matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have lost 6 of their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Shubman Gill has scored at least 45 in 4 of his last 5 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Gujarat Titans have won both their matches against Delhi Capitals in the IPL competition. When these sides last met in the reverse fixture at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, the Titans won by six wickets.

Mohammed Shami and Rashid Khan picked up three wickets each, while Sai Sudharsan made an unbeaten 62 to lead the Titans over the line.

Gujarat Titans Form


Gujarat Titans are top of the standings with 12 points from eight matches although they could be upstaged by Lucknow if they win on Monday.

Shubman Gill’s 333 runs have been the mainstay for the Titans with almost everyone contributing across the order. With the ball, it is Rashid Khan with 14 wickets leading the show for Gujarat.

There have been impressive performances all around for Gujarat giving them a distinct edge.

Gujarat Titans Team News


Gujarat have been consistent with their team selection and could go with the same unless they would like to bring Sai Sudharsan back into the team.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi Capitals are bottom of the points table with four points from eight matches. They are coming off a nine-run loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad that halted a two-game winning run.

David Warner’s 306 runs are the most for Delhi Capitals this season while Axar Patel has scored 211 so far. There isn’t much cutting edge with the ball though, with three bowlers taking seven wickets each so far.

The Capitals are still struggling to find the right composition, especially with the bat. The continuous chopping and changing is keeping the players on their toes without helping one bit.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Mukesh Kumar’s poor returns could put his place in risk with the left-arm seamer Chetan Sakariya in line to replace him.

Verdict

It’s not just a battle of top versus bottom but also a battle of contrasting forms. Gujarat Titans have been in cracking form winning matches even when they haven’t been playing well. Delhi Capitals on the other hand have been struggling to close out matches with their batting order having not come to terms with the requirements. My prediction is in the opening partnership market and I am backing Gujarat Titans to post the highest opening partnership.
