Kolkata Knight Riders vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2024 prediction: Match win, Dream11 and toss

Gujarat Titans vs Delhi Capitals match preview

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans have had a mixed season in the IPL 2024 so far with three wins and three losses. They have six points to their credit with a net run-rate of -0.637. They are coming off a thrilling three-wicket victory over Rajasthan Royals in the last game. 

Bowling first, the Gujarat bowling attack was taken apart by Sanju Samson and Riyan Parag. Rashid Khan was the only bowler to make a difference, picking 1 for 18 in four overs. Shubman Gill then made 72 off 44 at the top of the order before Rahul Tewatia struck 22 in 11. Rashid starred with the bat as well, hitting 24 not-out in 11 to snatch the victory. 

GT possible XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Vijay Shankar, Shahrukh Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Spencer Johnson, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals are languishing at the second last place on the table with four points and a negative net run-rate of -0.975. They have won two games in the tournament while losing four. In the previous game, they pulled off a confidence-boosting win over Lucknow Super Giants by six wickets. 

Kuldeep Yadav was the star for DC as he bowled an exceptional spell of 3 for 20 in four overs to restrict LSG to 167/7. Chasing the target, Prithvi Shaw scored 32 off 22 at the top before Jake Fraser-McGurk announced himself in great style. The Aussie youngster blasted 55 in 35 on his IPL debut while Rishabh Pant also hit 41 off 24 as DC finished the game with 11 balls to spare. 

DC possible XI: David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Tristan Stubbs, Shai Hope, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The pitches at Ahmedabad are generally flat and high-scoring, where batters have had plenty of success in T20 cricket. Seamers get some movement with the new ball under lights but apart from that, there is not much for the bowlers. The average first innings score at the ground in IPL reads 178.

The forecast suggests that Ahmedabad should witness mainly clear and warm weather on Wednesday evening. There is only around a 2% chance of precipitation so rain should not be a concern. The temperature is likely to range between 28-32 degree Celsius.

Our GT vs DC Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Rishabh Pant 
  • Batter(s): Shubman Gill, David Warner, Sai Sudharsan, Prithvi Shaw 
  • All-rounder(s): Axar Patel 
  • Bowler(s): Rashid Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Noor Ahmad, Spencer Johnson
  • Recommended captain: Shubman Gill 
  • Recommended vice-captain: Rishabh Pant 

Here in the GT vs DC match prediction, we will shed light on why we have picked the above XI for this Dream11 contest. The pitches at this ground are generally great for batting but both GT and DC batting units haven't been at their best. Considering this, we have opted for a more balanced side.

Rishabh Pant is our only wicket-keeper pick from this game. In the batting section, we have Shubman Gill, David Warner, Sai Sudharsan and Prithvi Shaw. Warner has had a few low scores but we all know his quality and he can not be left out. Shaw has been in good form and Sai Sudharsan has had consistent starts. 

Axar Patel has done a decent job in the competition and could be effective here. Among specialist bowlers, we have five of them. Spinners Rashid Khan and Kuldeep Yadav are must picks whereas Noor Ahmad has also done well. Khaleel Ahmed and Spencer Johnson, the two left-arm pacers could be effective if there's any movement. 

As for the C & VC, Shubman Gill is the most popular choice and we can't argue against that. For the second pick, we have gone with Rishabh Pant, who has been in good touch and should get enough game-time with the bat here. 

Match prediction: Gujarat Titans to win

The two teams have faced each other three times, with Gujarat Titans leading the scoreline by 2-1. Talking about this fixture, GT hold an edge but not by a big margin. Their batting will rely on Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan, Rahul Tewatia and the returning David Miller. DC also have some excellent batters in their line-up but GT have a better bowling unit. Our match prediction is for Delhi Capitals to win. 

Toss prediction: Gujarat Titans to win the toss and field first

Ahmedabad is a venue where the team batting second has had more success in the past. The pitches generally remain the same throughout the game and dew factor further helps the chasing side. The venue has been a host to 19 games in the IPL, with the chasing side claiming 11 of those. Our toss prediction is that Gujarat Titans will win the toss and choose to field first. 

Man of the match prediction: Shubman Gill 

The Indian young star had a slow start to the season but seems to have found his usual form. Shubman Gill has scored 255 runs from six innings in the ongoing IPL 2024, averaging 51 at a strike rate of 152. He has registered two fifties in the tournament, including 72 off 44 in the previous game against Rajasthan Royals. Gill is the best batter in the GT line-up and their best hope of countering an in-form Kuldeep Yadav.
