Gujarat Titans

The Titans would be ruing the fact that they could not beat the Delhi Capitals (DC) in their previous game despite being in a decent position. After being asked to bat first, DC scored 224 for the loss of 4 wickets. Sandeep Warrier picked up 3 wickets for 15 runs, but did not get enough support. Sai Sudharsan and David Miller scored 65 and 55 respectively, but their efforts went in vain.

The GT vs RCB prediction will depend on how the home team manage to make use of the favourable home conditions.

Gujarat Titans Possible 11: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Shahrukh Khan, Rashid Khan, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, Sandeep Warrier

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

The pitch in Ahmedabad is expected to be a decent one for the batters. However, there will be something in the track for the spinners. Teams need to score around the 200-run mark to be on the safer side. Bowlers would not have much room for error as batters should be able to play their shots on the up.

There is no chance of rain for the time being. Temperatures will be around the 39-degree Celsius mark. The humidity will be under 20s. Wind gusts of 28 km/h will be there to make life comfortable for the players on the field.
