IPL: Gujarat Titans to bowl first against Delhi Capitals

IPL: Gujarat Titans to bowl first against Delhi Capitals

New Delhi, April 24 (UNI) In a much-anticipated IPL showdown at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here on Wednesday, Gujarat Titans won the toss and opted to bowl first against Delhi Capitals.
With the stadium known for its dewy conditions, the decision to chase could prove crucial in the latter stages of the match.
Delhi Capitals' captain, Rishabh Pant, shared his thoughts on the pitch, remarking, "Losing the toss might just be in our favour today. We would have chosen to bat first anyway. The pitch seems a tad slower than our last game, and the looming dew could swing the game either way."
Pant made two pivotal changes to his squad, sidelining David Warner to pave the way for Shai Hope, and Sumit Kumar stepping in for Lalit Yadav.
On the Gujarat Titans' side, skipper Shubman Gill exuded confidence in his team's chasing prowess, saying, "We're keen to chase today. The pitch appears favourable, and our recent track record with chasing gives us an edge."
Despite marking his 100th IPL appearance, Gill underscored the importance of the present match over personal milestones. The Titans have opted to stick with their winning combination from the previous match.
Playing XIs:
Delhi Capitals: Prithvi Shaw, Jake Fraser-McGurk, Abishek Porel, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant(w/c), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar
Gujarat Titans: Wriddhiman Saha(w), Shubman Gill(c), David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Shahrukh Khan, Rashid Khan, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, Sandeep Warrier
Impact Substitutes:
Delhi Capitals: Sumit Kumar, Rasikh Dar Salam, Kumar Kushagra, Praveen Dubey, Lalit Yadav
Gujarat Titans: Sharath BR, Sai Sudharsan, Manav Suthar, Darshan Nalkande, Vijay Shankar
The stage is set for an enthralling contest between the Delhi Capitals and the Gujarat Titans. Both teams are geared up for a compelling face-off, eyeing a victory in this pivotal encounter.
