GT vs SRH Dream 11 top fantasy picks
GT vs SRH Dream 11 top fantasy picks for today’s match and let’s start with a quick preview of this match.
There are plenty of reasons to be concerned if you are a hitter going into the Gujarat Titans-Sunrisers Hyderabad match. While Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson, and Hardik Pandya provide expertise to the Titans, Umran Malik, Marko Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and T Natarajan bring swagger and charisma to Hyderabad. Both bowling teams will compete for dominance in this match.
Few believed Hyderabad would let Rashid go before the auction. Hyderabad just couldn’t afford him, as Muttiah Muralitharan revealed. As a result, Rashid’s rematch with his previous club will be a mini-battle to watch.
After two losses, Hyderabad has been too hot to handle for a lot of teams and has been bulldozing them. They’ve won five games in a row, with two eight-wicket victories, two seven-wicket victories, and a nine-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Titans are at the top of the table, but their sole defeat came at the hands of Hyderabad. They’ll be eager to avoid a repetition of the previous fight and to put some distance between themselves and the pursuing group. With a victory here, they’ll have 14 points from eight games, while Hyderabad will have 10 points from the same amount of games. Winning here is critical for both teams and may go a long way toward assuring a top-two finish.
Venue – Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
