GT is anticipated to keep their momentum after winning the first match.
In Match 10 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, the Gujarat Titans will face the Delhi Capitals, who appear to be in good shape. On April 2, the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune will host the group stage match (Saturday).
Gujarat Titans, headed by Hardik Pandya, defeated the Lucknow Super Giants in the tournament’s first match. In their 20 overs, the Lucknow Super Giants batted first and reached a competitive score of 158/6. Gujarat, on the other hand, surpassed the total with two balls to spare in their innings. For snagging three wickets in the encounter, pacer Mohammed Shami was named player of the match.
Shubman Gill and Matthew Wade are the starters
In the previous match, Gujarat’s openers failed to get their side off to a strong start, as Shubman Gill was sent to the pavilion without upsetting the scorers. Matthew Wade, another opener, scored 30 runs off 29 balls while hitting four boundaries.
Despite the fact that the GT openers failed to get the team off to a solid start, the management would try to give the gifted batter Gill and wicketkeeper-batter Wade another chance. The Capitals have a strong bowling corps, and the matchup between DC’s new-ball bowlers and the GT openers will be fascinating.
Vijay Shankar, David Miller, and Abhinav Manohar make up the middle order
With the exception of all-rounder Vijay Shankar, the remainder of Gujarat’s middle order made significant contributions to their team during the first match. The middle order was important in GT’s victory, since they not only scored runs but also did it at a reasonable rate.
David Miller (30 off 21 balls) and Abhinav Manohar (15* off 7 balls) also contributed to their team’s success. While Miller was dismissed after a key innings, Manohar stayed unbroken and provided excellent assistance for Rahul Tewatia.
Rahul Tewatia and Hardik Pandya are all-rounders
All-rounder Rahul Tewatia (40 off 24 balls) was outstanding in his batting performance, remaining unbeaten and leading his team to victory. During his innings, the left-handed batter hit five fours and two maximums. The 28-year-old, though, did not bowl in the encounter. Hardik Pandya (33 off 28 balls) was important in his team’s victory.
Lockie Ferguson, Varun Aaron, Mohammed Shami, and Rashid Khan are the bowlers
During their first match against LSG, Gujarat’s pacers were on point. Mohammed Shami, the Player of the Match, was the pick of the bowlers, striking three times and conceding only 25 runs in his four-over quota. KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and Manish Pandey were all removed by Shami.
Rashid Khan, a leg-spinner, bowled quite well. The Afghanistan star spinner bowled his whole quota of four overs, taking one wicket and allowing only 27 runs in the process.
Varun Aaron, an Express pacer, was a touch pricey during his spell, but he did take two key wickets in Evin Lewis and Ayush Badoni. Lockie Ferguson of New Zealand did not take any wickets, but he was quite economical, conceding only 24 runs in his four-over quota.
