Gujarat Titans and Delhi Capitals will square off in game 44 of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. As GT leads the points table with six victories in eight games, including a six-wicket victory over DC, both teams have had completely different seasons.
Having won just twice in eight games, the Capitals are last in the standings.
The much-anticipated player encounters are listed below.
1. Mohammed Shami vs David Warner
Early on, DC captain David Warner would have to contend with Mohammed Shami’s lightning-fast bowling. Shami has been so brilliant with the new ball that he leads the league in powerplay wickets this year with eight.
While he has given up 107 runs off 76 balls in 10 IPL games, he has also dismissed Warner twice. Warner’s strike rate in the IPL 2023 Powerplay is 128.24.
2. Rashid Khan vs Axar Patel
This season, Axar Patel has excelled at playing the finisher. Rashid Khan might take on the role of attempting to keep him quiet on behalf of GT. As the leggie has faced Patel twice in seven IPL games, Patel has struggled against him.
Only 22 runs have been scored by him off of 23 balls.
Rashid’s IPL economy rate against left-handed batters is just 6.64.
3. Anrich Nortje vs Shubman Gill.
This season, Shubman Gill has been on a tear, and DC would not want him to continue his winning streak. Speedster Anrich Nortje has successfully defeated Gill in the past, having done so twice in five encounters.
The opener, however, has a strike rate of 161.90 in this conflict.
Furthermore, this season, Nortje has been giving up runs at a rate of 9 points for powerplays.
