The Narendra Modi Stadium pitch has been favorable for batsmen and also offers some support to new ball bowlers. However, the Gujarat Titans have struggled at their home ground this season, managing only two wins out of five matches.

 

The average score batting first at the stadium is 165, and in this season's five matches, the team chasing has emerged victorious on three occasions. In the recent game between the Titans and Delhi Capitals at this venue, both teams struggled to put runs on the board, with the Capitals managing only 130 runs. It was the first time that a team failed to score more than 150 runs at the venue.

 

During the initial four matches, the batsmen fared well and managed to score more than 170 runs on each occasion. The pacers have been more successful, accounting for 63% of wickets in T20 matches at this venue over the last three years, while the spinners took the remaining 37%.

 

Probable Playing XI for both Teams

The possible GT team lineup consists of Wriddhiman Saha as the wicketkeeper, Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya as the captain, Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Mohit Sharma, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, and Alzarri Joseph as the other players.

Shubman Gill:

One of the standout performers for Gujarat Titans this season has been the young Indian opener, Shubman Gill. He currently holds the fourth spot on the list of highest run-scorers in the IPL 2023 with 375 runs in ten innings at an impressive average of 37.50 and a strike rate of 135.86. Gill has already notched up three half-centuries this season, and his highest score of 67 came against Punjab Kings. The Titans will be banking on him to deliver another decisive performance against LSG.



Mohammed Shami:

Another player to watch out for is Mohammed Shami, who has played a crucial role in the Titans' victories this season. Shami has picked up 18 wickets in ten matches, averaging 15.22, and currently sits in second place on the IPL 2023 Purple Cap list. His skills with the ball will be crucial for the Titans as they look to secure their spot in the playoffs.

 

Match Prediction: GT to Win

The Gujarat Titans have been in exceptional form, and their home advantage against LSG is set to play a crucial role in today's match. LSG will face an uphill battle without their captain Rahul, and the Titans' formidable squad will be tough to crack for the visitors in their backyard.
