Delhi Capitals played their first match at home and started with a loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad. They pummel the DC bowler all around the park and piled up 266 with the bat. DC in return scored 199 in the run-chase before getting bowled out. Jake Fraser-McGurk started to smash from the first ball in the powerplay. But he didn't get enough support from other batters. Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets, but he was expensive. Maintaining consistency in their games has been one of the big problems for the Capitals this season. They will be hoping these players continue their good form with ample support from other bowlers and batters.

On the other hand, the Gujarat Titans too have struggled to win games consistently. However, they became the first team to beat Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh stadium. In their previous match in Mullanpur against Punjab Kings, they managed to chase down 143 in the final over of the match. The chase was a real struggle for the Titans once Shubman Gill was dismissed. The batting is dependent on GIll to give them a good start. The bowling is too dependent on the Afghan spinners and Mohit Sharam to fire consistently. The Titans will look to continue their winning momentum.

Captain and Vice-Captain picks

Captain : Jake Fraser-McGurk

Vice-Captain : Shubman Gill


Delhi Capitals are favorites to win this clash. The Shubman Gill-led side lacked quality in batting, especially with Gill and Miller not in great form. This team lacks explosive firepower. For DC, they are a top heavy side and the inclusion of Jake Frazer McGurk comes as a shot in the arm. Capitals batting gives them an edge over the Titans.
