The defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) are in terrific form at the moment, winning all of their last three IPL 2023 matches. Thus, they will be fairly confident ahead of their next match against Delhi Capitals (DC) on May 2, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The Hardik Pandya-led side has a very good balance between batting and bowling and that is one of the reasons behind their success so far. With the ball, Mohammed Shami and Noor Ahmad have been fantastic, while Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, and David Miller are playing some phenomenal cricket at the moment.
When it comes to the visiting team, Delhi is currently at the bottom of the IPL Points Table. In their last match, the David Warner-led side suffered a nine-run defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad and thus, needs to work on their game plan in order to do well in the remaining games. They currently lack an experienced middle-order batter to can take the team home. In the last match, Mitchell Marsh was incredible with both bat and ball and the team will once again depend a lot on him. Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if Axar Patel earns a promotion in the batting order since the team was heavily criticized for sending the Southpaw down in the order against SRH.
