- Match: Gujarat vs Delhi, Indian T20 League
- Date: 2nd April 2022
- Time: 07:30 PM IST
- Venue: MCA Stadium, Pune
On April 2, Gujarat will face Delhi in the Indian T20 League’s Match 10 at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Both sides will enter this match on the heels of great victories in their respective season openers. Gujarat began their season with a five-wicket victory against fellow newcomer Lucknow, while Dehi defeated Mumbai by four wickets.
Gujarat were excellent with both the bat and the ball, putting the brakes on Lucknow’s momentum from the start. With the new ball in hand, senior bowler Mohammed Shami shook the top-order, and Lucknow would have battled to even achieve a reasonable score if it hadn’t been for the middle-order trio of Ayush Badoni, Deepak Hooda, and Krunal Pandya’s vital innings. Gujarat also demonstrated that they have a strong batting lineup capable of taking the game away from any opponent.
Despite Ishan Kishan’s 81* off 48, Delhi’s bowlers, particularly Kuldeep Yadav, appear to be peaking at the perfect moment, as they limited Mumbai to a reasonable total of 177/5. Although their hitters dominated the game, Delhi can be confident in the fact that they have a strong lower-order that can be depended on in crucial situations, as Lalit Yadav and Axar Patel guided them to victory with an unbroken 75-run seventh-wicket stand.
Pitch Report & Conditions
On this flat surface, the Pune wicket provides a lot of help to the batsmen, and a run-fest is likely. The pacers are unlikely to get much traction on the bumpy surface, but the spinners can take advantage of it. On this surface, though, chasing is rather simple if the team has all of its wickets intact. As a result, the captain who wins the toss chooses to bowl first.
Probable Playing XI:
Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade (wk), David Miller, Hardik Pandya (c), Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Varun Aaron
Prithvi Shaw, Tim Seifert, Mandeep Singh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed
