Who will win today match
Gujarat will win this match. The team has a balanced batting order and is very good until Chirag Gandhi. Captain Panchal will have a lot of burden on his head, as he is the top performer of the team and he will have to score some good runs at the top. In the bowling, there are a couple of bowlers who can tumble Uttar Pradesh’s batting lineup. UP has a very good team but would be unable to match the skills of the Gujarat team. If Shivam Sharma and Upendra Yadav perform well, Uttar Pradesh can win the GUJ vs UP Dream 11 Today match prediction.
