GT in IPL 2024: Team preview, full squad, predicted XI and impact players for Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad match preview

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans started the IPL 2024 season with a thrilling win over Mumbai Indians by 6 runs but lost their next match against Chennai Super Kings by 63 runs. Playing away from home, they were completely outperformed in both departments. 

None of the bowlers could make an impact as CSK smashed 206 runs on the board. Chasing the target, Titans lost their captain Shubman Gill early and they just could not get going. Sai Sudharsan scored 37 off 31 while David Miller made 21 off 16 but Miller's dismissal proved to be the final nail. 

GT possible XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Vijay Shankar, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Spencer Johnson, R Sai Kishore, Mohit Sharma

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Sunrisers Hyderabad have played two games in the season, winning and losing one each. They fell 4 runs short of the target in the first game against Kolkata Knight Riders but defeated Mumbai Indians by 31 runs in the second outing. 

SRH clinched the record for the highest team total in the IPL as they scored 277 in 20 overs against MI. Travis Head struck 62 off 24 while Abhishek Sharma smashed 63 off 23. Heinrich Klaasen then blasted 80 not-out in 34 deliveries. Pat Cummins was the best bowler in the match, picking 2 for 35 as Mumbai also hammered 246. 

SRH possible XI: Mayank Agarwal, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Jaydev Unadkat, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The venue in Ahmedabad is known to be high-scoring, where batters often put up big scores. The pitches here have consistent bounce but do not offer much assistance for the bowlers. The average first innings score at the ground in IPL stands at 177.

The forecast suggests that the weather in Ahmedabad should be typically sunny and hot on Sunday afternoon. The rain should not be an issue but players will have to deal with the heat. The temperature is likely to hover between 32-38 degree Celsius in the afternoon.

Our GT vs SRH Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Heinrich Klaasen, Wriddhiman Saha 
  • Batter(s): Shubman Gill, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Sai Sudarshan 
  • All-rounder(s): Aiden Markram, Azmatullah Omarzai
  • Bowler(s): Rashid Khan, Pat Cummins, Spencer Johnson
  • Recommended captain: Heinrich Klaasen 
  • Recommended vice-captain: Abhishek Sharma 

In this part of the GT vs SRH match prediction, let's talk about the reasons for picking the above XI for this Dream11 contest. Considering the nature of the venue, we have focused more on the batting. Starting with the wicket-keepers, Heinrich Klaasen is a must-pick while Wriddhiman Saha can give you good value on a good batting surface. 

Shubman Gill has not had a good start to the season but the world knows what he can do and must be picked. Sai Sudarshan may not be destructive but has the consistency to pile on good scores. Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma are coming off a memorable game, where they destroyed the Mumbai bowling attack. 

Aiden Markram bats at four and is coming off a decent 42-run knock in the last game. Azmatullah Omarzai offers a good dual value as he bowls in the powerplay and is a decent hitter of the ball. Among bowlers, Rashid Khan is a must pick while Pat Cummins was superb in the last game. Spencer Johnson has big potential and you can back him to come good.

For captaincy and vice captaincy, there are several options such as Heinrich Klaasen, Abhishek Sharma, Shubman Gill, Travis Head and Azmatullah Omarza. We are going with Klaasen and Sharma. Both batters are in great form and should enjoy the conditions at Ahmedabad.

Match prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad to win

The two teams have faced each other three times, with Gujarat Titans winning two games and Sunrisers Hyderabad claiming one. There's not much to conclude from the small sample size. As for this fixture, SRH seems to have a much stronger batting unit and their biggest threat Rashid Khan can be neutralised by Sharma and Klaasen. GT’s batting unit, on the other hand, is heavily reliant on Shubman Gill. Our match prediction is for Sunrisers Hyderabad to win. 

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

Ahmedabad generally produces flat pitches and defending the target here can be a tough job. The venue has hosted 17 games in the IPL, with the chasing side winning nine of those. Teams prefer chasing in T20 cricket unless the pitch is expected to get slower. Our toss prediction is that Gujarat Titans will win the toss and opt to field first. 

Man of the match prediction: Heinrich Klaasen 

The South African batter is in incredible form and  he continues to rip apart all types of bowling attacks. Heinrich Klaasen has the ability to take down pace as well as spin, which makes him a very dangerous batter. He also has a terrific record against Rashid Khan – the opposition's best bowler. Klaasen struck 63 off 29 versus Kolkata and followed it up with an unbeaten 80 off 34 against Mumbai. 

Betting Odds

  • Gujarat Titans: 1.81 (PARIMATCH)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad: 2.00 (PARIMATCH)

As per the bookmakers, Gujarat Titans are favourites to win this match with the odds of 1.81. SRH have a slightly higher odds of winning this game at 2.00.
