Gujarat Titans: Analysis

Gujarat Titans

Gameplan: The Gujarat side has lived up to its worth in every aspect so far in the tournament. The newly added franchise to the league has proved its quality with the bat and the ball and every other important aspect related to the game. The team has managed to display great ability to handle unforeseen situations and shown great composure to handle the pressure of facing the other already established sides in the league. 

The players also have adapted to the newer situations in a new franchise as they’ve played wonderfully well together as a unit. In both the games the team beautifully managed to counter every strategy of the opposition, the credit for which must go to their players who’ve properly fulfilled their duties on a regular basis. The batsmen have been brilliant in stabilising the innings and both setting a good total and also chasing it.

Probable Top performers

Probable best batsman of the match – Shubman Gill 

After a fantastic 84 in the last match against the Delhi Capitals, Shubman Gill no doubt has announced his arrival into the season of the IPL. His superb innings with a greatly impressive strike rate speak dozens about his being back into form. 

His crucial innings helped his side post a competitive total on the board which later in win them the game. A similar performance from the young opener is all the team management would expect so that the team manages to win tomorrow’s game against a strong Punjab side.

Probable best bowler of today’s match – Rahul Chahar

The fearless spells including wickets and runs at the low economy from Rahul Chahar have played a major role in Punjab’s good performance so far in the season. Whenever the situation has taken a negative turn the captain has looked up to the spinner for help and Chahar has delivered on the majority of such occasions. 

His brave bowling attitude has helped him execute his plans at any phase of the game. In the early stages of the game when the batsman looking to settle themselves on the pitch is when Chahar has done his best in demolishing the opposition. The team management will expect the young spinner to do the same in tomorrow’s game vs Gujarat.
