IPL 2022 – Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Titans Match 21 Preview

Gujarat Titans will want to extend their undefeated streak when they face Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022’s Match 21. On Monday, the match will take place at Mumbai’s Dr DY Patil Sports Academy (April 11). While both teams have had dissimilar beginnings to the season, both are coming off victories, and it will be fascinating to watch how this game unfolds.

GT couldn’t have started their campaign any better, with three straight victories. Although the team has its flaws, Hardik Pandya’s guys have crossed the line every time thus far. Bowling has been their primary strength, as demonstrated by Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, and Rashid Khan.

Shubman Gill has been the standout hitter. While Hardik Pandya has excelled in all three areas, there are obviously significant issues at the top of the batting order. Matthew Wade has mostly struggled on Indian soil, whereas Sai Sudharsan has only played one match. However, David Miller and Rahul Tewatia’s skill at the lower echelons has masked this issue. Tewatia has been particularly impressive, slamming two sixes against PBKS with 12 runs required off the final two deliveries.

Thus, while GT may not appear to be the most balanced squad on paper, players stepping up has aided the club. SRH, on the other hand, suffered crushing defeats in their first two excursions when major flaws were uncovered. However, the Orange Army fought back in their most recent match, thrashing the reigning champions Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets.

Indeed, it was a comprehensive victory, since the Yellow Army never appeared to be in the chase. The side has a powerful batting order with the likes of Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, and Aiden Markram. Although Williamson has yet to ignite the competition, his opening partner Abhishek Sharma recently carded a superb 75. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, and Washington Sundar have all performed admirably as bowlers.

Spinners will play a critical role as tracks slow with each passing game. At the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, the track has remained neutral thus far. SRH trounced CSK in their last assignment at same site. The pacers had some assistance early in the game, and the spinners entered the fray later. However, as the game went, the circumstances improved for batting. As a result, the captain who wins the toss will decide to bowl.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

 

As indicated previously, SRH are coming off a dominant victory and are thus unlikely to make any lineup changes. Shashank Singh, who took the position of Abdul Samad in SRH’s last game, will be scrutinised. Due to the fact that he did neither bat or bowl against CSK, the all-rounder will be eager to make an impression against GT.

 

Gujarat Titans

 

Sai Sudharsan and Darshan Nalkande made their GT debuts in their most recent assignment. The two impressed during the match and are unlikely to return to the bench. Due to Matthew Wade’s struggles in the competition, Afghanistan’s Rahmanullah Gurbaz may take over as the tournament’s opening batsman. He is also capable to taking up wicketkeeping responsibilities.

 

The match is scheduled to take place on the 11th of April, 2022 at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai
