David Warner’s team began the tournament with a 50-run defeat to the Lucknow Super Giants. It was an unexpected team selection for a team that sacrificed batting depth and paid the price. They need to find the right balance for this game, and we can expect some changes. Warner expects a better performance from his team when they face the defending champions.
David Warner impressed in the previous game, and he and Prithvi Shaw will look for a strong start in this one. After their collapse in the previous game, the middle order must perform well this time, and the side will look for runs from Mitchell Marsh, Rilee Rossouw, and Phillip Salt. The lower middle order is strengthened by Lalit Yadav, Sarfaraz Khan, and Axar Patel.
The bowling attack must perform better than it did in the previous game. Mukesh Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed will need to bowl well with the new ball, as their opponents have a strong batting line-up. Chetan Sakariya must perfect his lines after a poor performance in the previous game. Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel must take advantage of the circumstances to cause trouble for their opponents.

Hardik Pandya’s team got off to a good start in the tournament, winning their first game by 5 wickets against the Chennai Super Kings. Kane Williamson, the team’s star batsman, has been ruled out due to an injury. They have a strong bench, and the team will be looking for a strong showing here.
Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill are in good form, which adds to the team’s confidence. They’ll need a strong start from the openers. Pandya, Vijay Shankar, and Matthew Wade all contribute to the middle order’s strength. Sai Sudarshan has the potential to be an impact player. Down the order, Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan provide firepower.
As the Capitals’ top order struggles, Mohammad Shami and Hardik Pandya will look for early breakthroughs. Rashid Khan will be buoyed by his performance in the previous game. Joshua Little, Yash Dayal, and Alzarri Joseph all have a lot of experience and contribute to the team’s strong attack.

Delhi Capitals vs Gujarat Titans Pitch Report
The Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi is one of the best T20 cricket venues in India, and we’ve seen some high-scoring games here in the past. Fast bowlers must use their variations to succeed here, while spinners benefit from good wicket support. Batsmen can play freely here because the ball comes onto the bat nicely.
On April 4, the skies over Delhi will be clear. We anticipate hot conditions. The track would be ideal for batting because it allows batsmen to easily play their strokes. Setting a target is difficult in this situation, and the team batting first would like to have more than 180 runs on the board.
