Gujarat Titans will play Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the 45th match of the Indian Premier League at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. The game will be on Sunday, April 28. The home team have a massive advantage over their opponents and will be keen to win here.

As always, RCB have not been at their best this season and appears lacklustre. They have top-quality players but couldn’t solve their problems and challenge their opponents on an equal footing. They will likely change that in this game.

GT, who rely upon their openers Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharsan, also have a spinner such as R Sai Kishore, who can weave a spell of magic over his opponents. RCB, on the other hand, are built around the Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell troika and have little outside of that.

Predicted Squads

GT: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), David Miller, Azmatullah Omarzai, Rahul Tewatia, Shahrukh Khan, Rashid Khan, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma, Sandeep Warrier.

RCB: Faf du Plessis (c), Virat Kohli, Will Jacks, Rajat Patidar, Cameron Green, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Mahipal Lomror, Karn Sharma, Lockie Ferguson, Yash Dayal, Mohammed Siraj.

Key Players

R Sai Kishore (GT): Left-arm spinner R Sai Kishore, who captains Tamil Nadu in domestic cricket, was single-handedly responsible for dismantling PBKS in his side’s previous game. Kishore is a master spinner and will not be easy to score against in this match.

Faf du Plessis (RCB): Captain Faf du Plessis, who is also opening the innings for RCB alongside Virat Kohli, will want to ensure he gets his team off to a good start and sets up a platform for them, either if they are batting first or second. Du Plessis is also an excellent fielder.

Match Prediction

GT are the overwhelming favourites to win this game. They can challenge their opponents, especially as RCB are going through an extremely rough patch of form. GT should be able to win this match by a relatively comfortable margin.

Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – 28.04.2024 Prediction

Chennai Super Kings take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 46th match of IPL 2024 at the M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 28, Sunday. When these two teams met earlier in the season in Hyderabad, SRH beat their opponents by a decent margin.

With CSK’s head coach going on record to state that his team is still looking for their best combination, SRH might have the upper hand. The visiting side have been in fine form this season, with them having already amassed three 250-plus totals while batting first.

SRH have a lot to work on despite being ranked third in the league table at the time of writing. They admit they need just three more victories to qualify for the playoffs, but they still need to improve their bowling and fielding.

Predicted Squads

CSK: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Mustafizur Rahman, Matheesha Pathirana.

SRH: Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Nitish Reddy, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, T Natarajan.

Key Players

Ruturaj Gaikwad (CSK): CSK skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored a century in his previous game, is one of the players to watch out for in this game against SRH. What works well for Gaikwad is that he can play both ways – either along the ground or in the air.

Travis Head (SRH): Australian opener Travis Head, who SRH bought in this year’s auction, has lit the IPL with his antics. He has played all kinds of strokes against seamers and spinners alike and managed to stay afloat by challenging his opponents.

Match Prediction

Despite being the visiting side, SRH are the downright favourites. They have top players in good form and will be waiting to unleash them upon CSK. On the other hand, the home team knows these conditions exceptionally well: the battle will be equal.
