GT vs DC – IPL – Team Previews
Having secured a comfortable 7-wicket win over the Kolkata Knight Riders, Pandya’s side currently sits atop the points table with 12 points. They will be looking to maintain their dominant run and capitalize on the Capitals’ lack of form.
Pandya himself has been a key player for the Titans, contributing with both bat and ball. His batting prowess will be particularly crucial if his teammates fail to perform. While the Titans boast several big names like Rashid Khan and David Miller, lesser-known players have also stepped up to support them.
However, wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha’s poor form is a concern for the Titans, with an average of just 18.9 in IPL 2023. During the last encounter of the two teams, Sai Sudarshan was awarded the man of the match for his half-century. Currently, only two players from the trio of Vijay Shankar, Abhinav Manohar, and Sudarshan have a place in the XI.
David Warner and his struggling team have only managed to win two games so far, effectively ending their chances of making it to the next round. The team’s key players have been struggling with poor form, making a comeback seem unlikely. In their last game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Delhi Capitals fell just 10 runs short in pursuit of a daunting total of 198.
While Mitch Marsh was excellent with bat and ball, he received little support from his teammates aside from Phil Salt. Capitals coach Ricky Ponting may consider promoting Axar Patel up the order to provide some much-needed stability. Meanwhile, Warner has been in fine form and could be a key player for his team if he can display more aggression and intent.
The Titans’ bowling attack has shown some weaknesses this season and could be vulnerable to an aggressive approach. Depending on the pitch conditions, the Capitals may make some changes, including the possibility of including Shaw, but they are unlikely to drop Phil Salt from the opening spot.

GT vs DC – IPL – Pitch Report and Toss Prediction
The Narendra Modi Stadium has proven to be a perfect ground for batsmen, thanks to its flat surface and lightning-fast outfield. This allows batsmen to play their shots without any fear of the ball stopping or bouncing unexpectedly. Spin bowlers have also found success on this ground due to the sharp turn that the ball generates.
