Both teams have finally managed to get some answers to their worries and will look to continue their momentum the same way. While Sunrisers Hyderabad would be happy with the form of Harry Brook and Aiden Markram, along with their home advantage, Gujarat Titans will be happy with the form of their captain Hardik Pandya and young Abhinav Manohar.
Probable Best Batter of the Match
Gujarat Titans Captain Hardik Pandya is back in the form he is known to be in. The Kungfu is finally in the zone to help the Gujarat Titans get the two valuable points and the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s relatively weaker bowling attack, coupled with the batting-friendly pitch, will only help Hardik Pandya to be the best batter of the match between Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Probable Best Bowler of the Match
Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been an undisputed champion player for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. It was his bowling effort that helped the Sunrisers Hyderabad defend a 220+ total against the raging batting order of the Kolkata Knight Riders. This is why he may be the best bowler of the match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad will be up against the Gujarat Titans in the 62nd Match of TATA Indian Premier League 2023 from the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on 15th May 2023. For the viewers, the match will be telecast live at 7:30 pm on Star Sports network on television and Jio Cinema on your mobile handset.
The Narendra Modi Stadium’s pitch has established itself as a batter’s heaven. It primarily has a hard surface so the bounce can be trusted and batters can play their shots. The players have taken a beating all over the field, and the upcoming game can be anticipated to be no different. The captain who wins the toss may want to field first. Along with that, the shorter boundary on one side may prove to be a crucial factor as well as the dew coming in the later half of the game in deciding the outcome of the match.
