Match No. 32 of the IPL 2024, GT vs DC, will be played on Wednesday in Ahmedabad.

Match No. 32 of the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will host a clash between two teams that have struggled so far. Gujarat Titans (GT) will host Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Narendra Modi Stadium on April 17 (Wednesday). Both teams are sitting in the second half of the IPL 2024 points table.

The situation is worse for DC, as they have only two wins in six matches. But they won their last game comprehensively. A win here will give them some relief, but GT will be hard to beat at home. They are coming off a brilliant win over the table-toppers Rajasthan Royals. Hence, their confidence will be very high.

GT vs DC: Head-to-Head

GT made their IPL debut in 2022. Since then, they have faced Delhi Capitals in three games so far. GT have won two games out of three, while DC have one win.

GT vs DC: Top five player battles to watch

1. Shubman Gill vs Khaleel Ahmed

Shubman Gill will be a big wicket in the game. He has been in great form this season and has scored the most runs for his team so far. He has scored 255 runs, and as a captain, he will look to take his team to victory. But among the current DC bowlers, Khaleel Ahmed has the best numbers against him. The left-arm pacer has dismissed him twice in 25 balls and conceded 38 runs. Khaleel is bowling well and has taken the most wickets for DC in the ongoing IPL 2024.

2. David Warner vs Umesh Yadav

David Warner has struggled in the last few games for DC and has scored a total of 166. But he can be a big match-winner on his day, as we all know. DC will hope him giving a good start to the team. But GT have Umesh Yadav, who has gotten the better of Warner many times. The Indian pacer has dismissed the DC opener 8 times in international cricket. Even in the IPL, he has dismissed him 5 times, and Warner has scored 99 off 68 balls at a strike rate of 145.6.

3. Rishabh Pant vs Rashid Khan

One big battle will be between DC skipper Rishabh Pant and GT’s best bowler, Rashid Khan. This battle will certainly impact the game during the middle overs. Pant has been in good form and has scored 194 runs at a strike rate of 157.72, but he has found it tough to play against Rashid. Pant has scored 87 runs off 76 balls against him at a strike rate of 114.15 and got out twice with 28 dot balls.

4. Sai Sudharshan vs Kuldeep Yadav

Sai Sudharsan has been the second best batter for GT after Shubman Gill. The left-hander has scored 226 runs at an average of 37.36. He is a very good player against spin and pace, and he makes sure that GT doesn’t lose quick wickets. But his biggest challenge will be against Kuldeep Yadav. The wrist spinner made his comeback in the last game and took three wickets. With his variations, he can be very effective in Ahmedabad. This will be one important battle in the game.

5. Jake Fraser-McGurk vs Mohit Sharma

Jake Fraser-McGurk had a brilliant start to his IPL career and scored a fifty on his debut. He helped his team chase down a tricky target against LSG and score 35-ball 55. The 22-year-old played some free-flowing shots and hit some big sixes. But can he do it against Mohit Sharma? It will be a big question. Mohit bowls different types of slower balls, which makes it hard to time your shot. Jake will surely be challenged and need to adjust when he faces Mohit in the GT vs DC.
