The Indian Premier League 2022 Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad will commence at 7:30 pm IST. Fans are eagerly waiting to witness the high-octane battle between two in-form sides this season.
David Miller and Abhinav Manohar have been in middling form, but the Titans would want to see Shubman Gill strike the form that fetched him 84 against Delhi Capitals and 96 against Punjab Kings, especially with Wriddhiman Saha struggling to make an impression. That the trio – Gill, Pandya and Miller – is the mainstay of Titans’ batting will not be lost on Sunrisers’ skipper Kane Williamson, who is low on runs but has been spot on in seizing opportunities.
Gujarat Titans are currently placed at the eighth position on the points table of this season of the Tata IPL, whereas Sunrisers Hyderabad is currently placed at the second-last position on the points table.

GT vs SRH Probable XIs
Gujarat Titans: Shubman Gill, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya (captain), Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Yash Dayal, and Alzzari Joseph.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (C), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Jagadeesha Suchith, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Marco Jansen, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
Hardik Pandya has struck 295 runs in 6 games so far. He will be aiming to make it big in this match once again. He can also net a few crucial scalps.
T Natarajan has grabbed 15 wickets in 7 matches so far. He will be among the top fantasy picks for this match as well.
Wankhede Stadium has been a high scoring wicket in the last few games, and the short boundaries have allowed the batters to take on the bowlers tactically. The captain who wins the toss is likely to stick with the bowling option first, as the dew factor will be one of the headaches for the skipper.
