Gujarat Titans (GT) will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday, May 15. Table toppers Gujarat have won eight of their 12 matches and will qualify for the playoffs with a win. Against SRH. They lost their last match against Mumbai Indians (MI) by 27 runs.
Hyderabad are second from the bottom in the table with only four wins out of eleven games. They need to win each of their last three league matches to qualify for the play-offs. They lost their last match against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by seven wickets.
As the two teams prepare to face each other for the first time in IPL 2023, let’s take a look at the players who are expected to take the most runs/most wickets in today’s game:
Most wickets – Rashid Khan
GT leg spinner is the biggest wicket taker in IPL 2023. He has taken 23 wickets in 12 matches at an average of 16 and an economy rate of 8. He took four wickets in his last outing against Mumbai Indians (MI). Wickets for thirty runs. He will be hungry to do some damage to his former team and ensure GT become the first team to secure a playoff spot this season.
Most Runs- Shubman Gill
The Gujarat Titans opener is the fifth highest run scorer in the IPL 2023 season. He has scored 475 runs in 12 matches at an average of 43 and a strike rate of 141. Gill managed just six runs in his last outing against Mumbai Indians. He will aim to bounce back with another cracking show in Ahmedabad where he scored 94* in his last innings against Lucknow Supergiants. Gill has played 11 matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad and scored 261 runs at an average of 32. Let’s hope he scores big again to ensure GT cement their place in the playoffs this season.
