GT vs SRH: Gujarat Titans look to settle scores with Sunrisers Hyderabad | Cricket News – Times of India


Given that Sunrisers Hyderabad have the wood on them, Gujarat Titans would look to settle scores and maintain their good position. The Titans have been consistent in their first season of IPL and the return leg between the two sides promises to be a keen contest at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday.
The eight-wicket defeat to Sunrisers is the Titans’ only blemish in a run that has seen them log six wins in seven outings. Rashid Khan has revelled in the role of a captain but with Hardik Pandya back and among runs in the eight-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders, the Afghan leggie will have a greater role to play against a team he was part of till last 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.

The match-up that got rid of Quinton de Kock against LSG, or the ploy to have an extra slip for an out-of-sorts Virat Kohli in the match against RCB, everything the New Zealander tried has worked for a team that has rallied remarkably after the two initial defeats.

Their bowling has been so effective in scuttling the plans of the opposition that the absence of Washington Sundar is not being felt with Marco Jansen making vital inroads upfront. Jansen reduced RCB to a pitiable state in the powerplay and with T Natarajan, who is No. 2 in the bowling charts with 15 wickets, holding his own at the backend, Umran Malik has been able to strut his stuff and make the opposition toil.
