DC vs GT Key Players Battle
1. Mohammed Shami vs. Prithvi Shaw:
To help DC get off to a strong start against Mumbai, Prithvi Shaw made a nice cameo. Shaw makes sure to score quickly when he shoots, eliminating any run rate equation that may have been present.
His goal should be to start the team off strong against GT as well. But Mohammed Shami, a Gujarati pacer, might present him with a serious challenge right away. KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and Manish Pandey were all dismissed by the Indian medium-pacer against LSG. Shami will try to return to Shaw early as well.
2. Axar Patel vs. Hardik Pandya:
Against Lucknow, GT captain Hardik Pandya showed flashes of his past self. To give the innings and his team some momentum, he played some fantastic, aggressive strokes. The team eventually benefited from it as they went on to win the competition.
He would try to build on the IPL’s strong start. Axar Patel’s skill will test Pandya in the middle overs. In the previous game, the left-arm spinner was costly. He is skilful at stifling rivals, though, and he can also take crucial wickets. Hardik is without a doubt one.
3. Rovman Powell vs Lockie Ferguson
Powell is a powerful batsman from the West Indies. He was chosen because of his ability to hit hard, and he would be eager to show that ability. Powell lost to Mumbai for a duck, so he is eager to make amends.
He is capable of obliterating opponents if he gets going. Therefore, if the West Indian gets a chance to play GT, he would want to make a lasting impression. Lockie Ferguson, who plays for Gujarat, has the extra speed to trouble him and also throws yorkers that crush the toes. There could be a difference of 20–30 runs depending on how this battle plays out.
