Match 12: Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Indian Premier League 2024

 Gujarat Titans (GT) will face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Ahmedabad at 1530 IST (1000 GMT).

Team Strategy and Key Players Update

Gujarat Titans

The Gujarat Titans are known for their strategic substitutions, particularly with fast bowler Mohit Sharma and left-hand batter Sai Sudharsan frequently swapping places. With Matthew Wade returning after missing the initial games due to the Sheffield Shield final, the Titans have added depth to their lineup. Shahrukh Khan and Abhinav Manohar are strong contenders for the middle-order positions, providing versatility and firepower.

Expected Lineup: 1 Shubman Gill (capt), 2 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 3 Sai Sudharsan, 4 Vijay Shankar, 5 David Miller, 6 Azmatullah Omarzai, 7 Rahul Tewatia, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 R Sai Kishore, 10 Spencer Johnson, 11 Umesh Yadav, 12 Mohit Sharma

Sunrisers Hyderabad

T Natarajan’s absence in the previous match due to an unspecified niggle has raised questions about his availability. Jaydev Unadkat, who filled in admirably against Mumbai Indians, showcased his variety in bowling and might retain his place in the starting XI. Additionally, Wanindu Hasaranga’s arrival in India is still pending, adding to the uncertainties for Sunrisers.

In terms of impact players, Sunrisers have options like medium-pacer Nitish Reddy or fast bowler Umran Malik for the initial overs, with Travis Head likely to feature prominently in the later stages. Washington Sundar’s inclusion could provide a strategic advantage against Gujarat Titans’ left-hand heavy batting lineup.

Projected Lineup: 1 Mayank Agarwal, 2 Travis Head, 3 Abhishek Sharma, 4 Aiden Markram, 5 Heinrich Klaasen (wk), 6 Abdul Samad, 7 Shahbaz Ahmed, 8 Pat Cummins (capt), 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Mayank Markande, 11 Jaydev Unadkat / T Natarajan, 12 Umran Malik
