Gujarat Titans

Gameplan: Gujarat Titans have been the best side so far in the league this season as they sit at the top of the points table with 12 points so far, the most for any team. However, the upcoming match won’t be a walk in the park for the Titans considering the fact that their only loss has come against the Sunrisers Hyderabad whom they’re supposed to face once again in their upcoming match. 

The batters have so far been providing handy contributions. The good scores from skipper Hardik Pandya will be a great relief to the team management.

Gameplan: Sunrisers have made an incredible comeback after an awful start to their campaign this season. The side has managed to achieve five straight winds after having lost both its opening matches and thus is a really tough team to defeat at the moment. Their bowling unit in particular has been top-notch and has had a great part to play in all their wins in the recent matches. 

The fact that they have won all of their last 5 games while chasing the total has been greatly possible due to their bowlers who have choked the opposition batsmen and not let them put up a big total on the board. The battles 2 have shown brilliant characteristic performances while chasing the totals as they’ve steered their team to win convincingly. Another similarly combined brilliance from all the players shall see Hyderabad add another win to its tally tomorrow.
