Gujarat Titans vs Royal Challengers Bengaluru


It’s a now-or-never battle for the basement club Royal Challengers Bengaluru as they visit a struggling Gujarat Titans side. The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will witness this IPL 2024 match #45 on Sunday from 3:30 p.m. IST.

It goes without saying that these two sides have underperformed this season. The Titans are marginally better, but anything less than a win here will put doubts around their playoff chances. I am looking at the sixes market, though, and backing the Royal Challengers to score the most sixes in this match.

  • Gujarat Titans have conceded the most sixes in their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have hit only 4.33 sixes per match this season (IPL)
  • Royal Challengers Bengaluru have hit 10 sixes per match this season (IPL)
  • Virat Kohli has scored 58 or above in each of his 3 innings against the Titans (IPL)

Head to Head


Gujarat and Bengaluru have met in three matches so far, with the Titans winning two and the Royal Challengers winning one.

Last season, these sides met at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, where Gujarat won by six wickets. Virat Kohli’s unbeaten century led the Royal Challengers to 197 for 5. The Titans responded with 198 and five balls to spare, as Shubman Gill scored a sparkling unbeaten ton to lead the chase.

Gujarat Titans Form


The Titans are fourth from bottom in the standings with eight points from nine matches. Although three teams are tied on eight points each ahead of this weekend, the Titans have the worst run-rate among them.

They lost to the Delhi Capitals in their last match by four runs in a game where 424 runs were scored. Delhi’s 224 nearly found a match from the Titans, led by Sai Sudharsan (65), but they fell short.

Sudharsan (334) leads the batting charts for the Titans, while Mohit Sharma (10) is their leading bowler.

Gujarat Titans Team News


The Titans played the same team over the last two games but will think long and hard about their bowling options. Will they keep their highest wicket taker Mohit out after conceding 73 in the last match? Kartik Tyagi or Umesh Yadav could be an option.

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Form


The Royal Challengers are at the bottom of the standings with only four points from nine matches. They are only mathematically staying in the playoff race.

Bengaluru gave themselves a lifeline, though, defeating Hyderabad by 35 runs in their last match. Kohli and Rajat Patidar led their batting with contrasting fifties, as RCB posted 206 for 7. It proved more than adequate, as spinners took two wickets each to restrict the chase.

Kohli (430) continues to be the torchbearer of RCB’s batting, while the bowlers struggle for impact. Their best bowler in terms of wickets is Yash Dayal (8).

Royal Challengers Bengaluru Team News


Bengaluru used the same team for their last two matches, but questions remain over Mohammed Siraj’s ineffective displays. Vijaykumar Vyshak is a surprising omission and is warming up the bench.

Verdict

Bengaluru have struggled with their bowling throughout the season, although the last match was an aberration. The Titans will look to take advantage of that and get an important win to boost their top-four chances. I am looking at the sixes market, though, and backing the Royal Challengers to hit more maximums.
