Defending IPL champions Gujarat Titans (GT) are currently in excellent form, having won their previous three IPL 2023 matches. As a result, they will feel confident ahead of their upcoming match against Delhi Capitals (DC) on May 2 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. One of the key reasons for their success so far is their well-balanced team, featuring both strong batting and bowling line-ups, under the leadership of all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
Delhi, however, are currently at the bottom of the IPL Points Table after recently suffering a nine-run loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous match. They will need to reassess their game plan and find ways to improve their performance in the remaining matches. The team is currently lacking an experienced middle-order batsman who can anchor the innings.
