Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match 40 – Players to watch
The SRH batter has grown from strength to strength every game and the team will be expecting him to keep this run of form going as the tournament approaches the business end. In the previous game against the Kolkata Knight Riders, he scored a crucial 71 runs that helped his team get the all important win. So far in the tournament, he has amassed 212 runs from 7 matches and we expect him to keep the momentum going against the mighty Gujarat Titans as well.
He is a bowler who is making a serious claim to a World T20 spot in the Indian National team. HE has not put a foot wrong so far in the tournament and has scalped 15 wickets from 7 games to keep his team firmly in the hunt for a play-off spot. The Sunrisers will be counting on him to take quick wickets and stop the Gujarat Titans onslaught.
Although he has said repeatedly that this IPL is not a comeback for him, his performances clearly are catching the eye of the selectors, who are looking for a consistent all-rounder to play in the upcoming World T20 tournament. Hardik was sidelined for a long time owing to injuries, but he has made a spectacular recovery and is now contributing with the bat and all, making him a true leader on the pitch. So far in the tournament, he has scored 295 runs and has 4 wickets to his name as well.
Rashid Khan has taken 8 wickets in 7 matches at a strike rate of 21 and an average of 22.75. He’s also helped GT out with the bat. He’s one of those bowlers you should never leave off your fantasy team.
