Gujarat Titans Playing 11 vs Delhi Capitals- IPL 2024, Match 40

    Gujarat Titans take on Delhi Capitals in the reverse fixture of IPL 2024 in Delhi on April 24. They are heading into the game being in the lower half of the points table and being in desperate need of points.

    The Titans are placed sixth on the points table. As a team, they are yet to win two back-to-back games on the trot. They lost their previous fixture against Delhi Capitals where they were bowled out for just 89 runs. They would like to see that game as an aberration and come back hard at them in the game in Delhi. 

    In between, they won the game against the Punjab Kings. The Kings were bowled out for 142 and the Titans chased down the game in the 29th over of their innings. They had their target chasing the below-par total against PBKS. 

    The side is heavily dependent on individuals to win the games. With the bat, they are dependent on the likes of Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan while with the ball, they are dependent on Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, and Mohit Sharma.

    Rahul Tewatia
