Gujarat will face Delhi in their second match on April 2 at 7:30 p.m. IST at MCA Stadium in Pune. Gujarat’s bowling attack is overly reliant on paceman Mohammad Shami and leg spinner Rashid Khan, which is causing the squad problems. Even without David Warner for the first four games, Delhi has a very good batting line-up.
Gujarat won’t have to make many changes to their lineup for the match against Delhi, and will most likely stick with the same lineup. With match-winners like skipper Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, Rashid Khan, and Mohammed Shami swarming the line-up from top to bottom, they already have a strong lineup.
Varun Aaron, the seasoned pacer, had gone for several runs in the last match, but there could be no instant change because they don’t have another experienced Indian pacer available to replace him. Gujarat will be hoping for Aaron to make an impact as his colleague Umesh Yadav did for Kolkata in their last two games.
Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, and Sarfaraz Khan, who have finished their 3-day quarantine, will be welcomed back into the fold by Delhi. It will undoubtedly improve their batting and bowling against a formidable opponent. It will be a huge confidence boost for Delhi, given they defeated Mumbai without the aforementioned stars, and their return will be a huge boost for Rishabh Pant’s team.
MCA’s pitch is regarded as a solid hitting pitch. The wicket will very certainly aid the spinners. In the first innings, the average score will be 165. For the first two or three overs, quick bowlers will receive some help. We must not forget that the whole Indian T20 League will be played at only four sites, ensuring a solid batting surface throughout the tournament’s early stages.
