Today’s fight of IPL 2023 is between Gujarat Titans and SunRisers Hyderabad (GT vs SRH).
The host, GT, is currently riding at the first position in the IPL points table. The team has performed sensationally throughout this T20 league by winning 8 out of 12 matches played. Though the team was outclassed by the strong striding MI in their previous game by 27 runs, GT still looks like a promising contender for play-offs.
As of now, GT has 16 points in its bag which, makes them just an inch away from entering the qualifiers. With just two games left against SRH and RCB respectively, SRH looks like an easier opponent to face considering its poor performance throughout the league. Therefore, GT will surely be eyeing to register a victory in the upcoming match, that can make them the first team to qualify for playoffs!
Coming to the visitors, SRH, the team is ranked 9th on the IPL points table with 8 points in their hands. Lack of an effective leadership clubbed with underperforming players has led the team to its downfall. There now lies a very slight chance for them to qualify for play-offs as it would need extraordinary wins in the remaining 3 matches as well as favoured results of other matches. So its a do-or-die game for SRH as losing it would mean their elimination.

GT vs SRH : Pitch report
Narendra Modi Stadium’s is a batting favourable pitch. However, the dimensions of the ground are long, so it will take more efforts from the batsmen to hit boundaries. Moreover, the pitch is also suitable for both seamers and spinners which will add to the difficulty in scoring runs. The venue has witnessed a total of 24 IPL matches out of 11 have been won by the team batting first and 13 by the chasers. Any score above 180 can be considered as a good total to defend. The captain winning the toss should opt to field first.
