GT vs DC match preview
Gujarat Titans have just continued the form they showed in the previous edition and have looked like one of the few well-balanced sides from the start of the competition. Having the best away records in the tournament, they have struggled a bit while playing at home. They will want to better that record as well but given they are at the top of the table, they will not mind that so much. Shubman Gill has been in fine touch and with David Miller also finishing off games, they are a dangerous batting unit. The bowlers, especially Rashid Khan and Mohammad Shami have too been quite sensational and will want to continue that form going into the playoffs.
Probable IX: Wriddhiman Saha(w), Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya(c), Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma
Nothing has gone right for the Capitals this season right from losing Rishabh Pant to losing key players to injuries. With just 2 wins from 8 games this season, they will need nothing but a miracle to qualify for the playoffs. But it does not seem likely that they will get anywhere closer to that playoff spot. As they play for pride now, they will want to put in some good performances. David Warner has been great for them, but the real highlight this season has been the performances of Axar Patel with both bat and ball. Saying that, they will need all the senior players to step up.
Probable IX: David Warner(c), Philip Salt(w), Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, Priyam Garg, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar
Pitch and expected weather conditions
The Narendra Modi Stadium looks to have slowed down, with batting getting extremely tough in the second innings. The norm here in the recent games is to bat first as the pitch slows down in the second innings.
It will be extremely humid, but as it is an evening game it will get cooler in the evening as the match goes along.

GT vs DC Dream11 prediction
Dream11 prediction for this match:
- Wicket-keeper(s): Wridhiman Saha
- Batter(s): Shubhman Gill, David Warner
- All-rounder(s): Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Mitchell Marsh, Vijay Shankar
- Bowler(s): Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmed
- Recommended captain: Shubhman Gill
- Recommended vice-captain: Cameron Green
There are some high-quality players taking the field in this encounter, and with the majority of them in form, it is difficult to decide who gets into your Dream 11 team. The impact sub-rule does not make your job any easier too.
The batsmen are in really good form, with all of them in the such great form it boils down to looking at the surface and keeping the conditions in mind. Given how the pitch has been behaving, it is important to have all rounders in your team, and with all the all rounders in this game in such good form, they are a must to have.
We would recommend having Shubman Gill as your Captain, as not only he is in brilliant touch but also has an impeccable record at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Mitchell Marsh should be your pick for Vice Captain as not only he will contribute with the bat, but also chip in with crucial wickets with the ball.
Match prediction: Gujarat Titans to win
— Gujarat Titans (@GujratTitans) April 26, 2023
Gujarat Titans just look incredibly strong and high on confidence. With Delhi Capitals morale extremely low, the Titans will look to wrap up this game without any difficulty. The Head to head record also seems to play into the Titans favour as they have won both previous encounters against them.
Toss prediction: Gujarat Titans to win the toss and bat first.
With a good judegment of the pitch and conditions, Gujarat Titans will look to win the toss and bat first. The pitch being the best for batting in the first innings, they will look to exploit that and pile up a big total on the board.
Man of the match prediction: Shubhman Gill
Shubhman Gill has been in amazing form coming into this IPL, and with the Narendra Modi Stadium being his absolute favourite surface to bat on, and with the form he is in will want to make it a big one against a weak bowling line up.
Gujarat Titans are placed at 1.60 and Delhi Capitals at 2.20. Gujarat Tintans are clear favourites to win this game, as they are playing at home and are also the inform team in the competition.
