Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Titans Team Previews
After two consecutive losses that drew criticism, Kane Williamson’s side won by an emphatic 8-wicket margin against Chennai Super Kings in their most recent game. This victory would have boosted morale in the camp, and they would look to capitalise on it here. The team would face a difficult opponent, and Williamson would need to lead from the front if the team was to win here.
Kane Williamson made some runs in the previous game, but he struggled. He will have to set the tone by opening the batting with Abhishek Sharma, who hit the winning run against CSK. Nicholas Pooran, Aiden Markram, and Rahul Tripathi will need to contribute in the middle order against the Titans’ strong bowling attack. Shashank Singh and Washington Sundar will be tasked with bringing the order down to size.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar needs to regain his rhythm after bowling normally with the new ball. He must strike early in the game while sharing the ball with Marco Jansen. Sundar is doing well, and he and T Natarajan will try to keep the Titans’ batsmen quiet in the middle overs. Umran Malik, the team’s fifth bowler, must perform admirably.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Squad
Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Romario Shepherd, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik, Marco Jansen, Ravikumar Samarth, Shreyas Gopal, Jagadeesha Suchith, Glenn Phillips, Shashank Singh, Vishnu Vinod, Priyam Garg, Kartik Tyagi, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Saurabh Dubey
Predicted XI: Kane Williamson (c), Abhishek Sharma, Glenn Phillips, Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Abdul Samad, Romario Shepherd, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik
Few expected the Titans to win three games in a row, but Hardik Pandya’s team has done just that, becoming the season’s biggest story. The team came from nowhere to defeat the Punjab Kings in a sensational run chase. The last-ball victory has given the team a boost of confidence, and they will look to maintain that level of performance when they face the Sunrisers, who have a slew of issues on their plate.
Shubman Gill was unlucky to miss out on a well-deserved century in the previous game, and she will look to provide a rock-solid start alongside Matthew Wade. Pandya, along with Sai Sudarshan, would have to lead the charge in the middle order. Rahul Tewatia is at his best down the order, and his heroics in the previous game will be remembered for a long time. He intends to use the long handle in conjunction with David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, and Rashid Khan.
The Titans have a strong bowling attack and would like to see tight spells from Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya, who bowled poor lines in the previous game. Rashid Khan had done well for his reputation, and the team would look to him and Lockie Ferguson for wickets in the middle overs. Darshan Nalkande appeared nervous against Punjab, and it will be up to him to deliver a good spell in this game.
Gujarat Titans Squad
Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade (wk), Wriddhiman Saha, Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Hardik Pandya (c), Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Pradeep Sangwan, Varun Aaron, Jayant Yadav, Vijay Shankar, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Darshan Nalkande, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Dominic Drakes, Sai Sudharsan, Yash Dayal, Noor Ahmad

Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Titans Toss Prediction
The wicket was slow in the previous game, making it difficult for batsmen to time the ball. Setting up a total on this track would be a huge challenge for the batting side. As a result, we anticipate that the team that wins the toss will have little hesitation in opting to bowl first in the game.
Pitch and Weather Conditions
Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy has a good batting track, and we’ve seen some big scores here in the past. There isn’t much in this track for fast bowlers, so they must rely on their abilities. Spinners have excelled on this track due to the ball’s ability to grip the surface and turn sharply.
The weather in Mumbai on April 11 is expected to be mostly clear, with a warm and humid evening. Since the start of the tournament, the wicket has become slower, requiring batsmen to work harder. The pitch is still expected to be good for batting, and the team batting first would need at least 175 runs to feel safe.
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Titans Match Prediction
Sunrisers Hyderabad have won their first game of the season, removing the monkey from their back. However, the side has a long way to go. They have a captain who appears to be in bad shape, and the team desperately needs runs from him. Gujarat Titans are in great form, having won three games in a row. They have a very strong batting lineup, which would give them an advantage in the game.
Gujarat Titans is the favourite to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad at the odds of 1.65.
- GT has won all three games this season, and they are full of confidence.
- SRH has only one win in three games, and several of their key players are struggling for form.
