In the previous game, Hardik Pandya’s team was defeated by the Mumbai Indians by a score of 27 runs. It was a rare failure for the team this season, as their bowling attack suffered. They are on top of the points table and have advanced to the next round. Pandya will look to win this game to gain momentum heading into the playoffs.
Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill have 750 runs between them and will look to get off to a good start in this match. Hardik Pandya has performed admirably and will look to contribute in the middle order alongside Vijay Shankar and David Miller. Down the order, Rahul Tewatia and Abhinav Manohar are good players who will look to add quick runs.
Mohammad Shami plays an important role with the new ball, and he will look to capitalize on Mohit Sharma’s lack of form in the Sunrisers camp. Rashid Khan has taken 23 wickets and will be the team’s main bowler. In this game, they will also need a strong performance from Noor Ahmed, Pandya, and Alzarri Joseph.
Hardik Pandya (c), Shubman Gill, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Sai Sudharsan, Wriddhiman Saha, Matthew Wade, Rashid Khan, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph, Yash Dayal, Pradeep Sangwan, Darshan Nalkande, Jayant Yadav, R. Sai Kishore, Noor Ahmad, Kane Williamson, Odean Smith, KS Bharat, Shivam Mavi, Urvil Patel, Joshua Little, Mohit Sharma
Players to watch out for:
The right-handed opener is averaging 43.18 in IPL 2023 and needs 14 more runs to reach his highest IPL total.
The South African left-hander has long been regarded as one of the best upper-middle-order batters in white ball cricket. In the previous game, he hit 41 runs on 26 balls.
The Afghan spinner delivered an outstanding performance against the Mumbai Indians. He took 4-30 before going on to hit 79 runs off 32 balls.
Possible Playing XI:
Hardik Pandya (c), Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, Mohit Sharma, Rashid Khan, Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph, Noor Ahmad Shubman Gill (Impact Player)
In the remaining games, Aiden Markram’s team will play for pride. They were defeated by the Lucknow Super Giants by 7 wickets in the final game, effectively ending their chances of making the playoffs. Inconsistency in the batting order and a weak bowling attack have plagued the team. Markram would like to see better efforts from his players as they face the strongest team this season.
As the GT attack has performed well, they will require runs at the top from Anmolpreet Singh and Abhishek Sharma. Rahul Tripathi has performed admirably at No. 3 and, along with Heinrich Klaasen and Markram, must anchor the innings. In this game, the lower middle order must show intent, and they will look for runs from Glenn Phillips, Abdul Samad, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Fazalhaq Farooqi must bowl good opening spells, as the Titans’ top-order players are in good form. Mayank Markande and T Natarajan have been in good form, and the team will rely on their tight spells. Sharma and Marco Jansen must perform admirably in supporting roles.
Aiden Markram (c), Abdul Samad, Rahul Tripathi, Glenn Phillips, Abhishek Sharma, Marco Jansen, Washington Sundar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Kartik Tyagi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T. Natarajan, Umran Malik, Harry Brook, Mayank Agarwal, Heinrich Klaasen, Adil Rashid, Mayank Markande, Vivrant Sharma, Samarth Vyas, Sanvir Singh, Upendra Yadav, Mayank Dagar, Nitish Kumar Reddy, Akeal Hosein, Anmolpreet Singh
Players to watch out for:
As one of only two Sunrisers Hyderabad players to have scored 250+ runs this season, the right-hander brings some form into this match.
The South African keeper-batter has been the team’s most impressive batter this season. He’ll be looking to improve on his tournament average of 43.67.
The experienced right-arm quick bowler has only taken ten or more wickets in two of the last five IPLs. However, he only needs one wicket in this game to reach double figures for the season.
Possible Playing XI:
Aiden Markram (c), Abhishek Sharma, Anmolpreet Singh, Rahul Tripathi, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Glenn Phillips, Abdul Samad, T Natarajan, Mayank Markande, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Marco Jansen (Impact Player)
Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Batsmen Worth Watching
We believe Shubman Gill, David Miller, and Wriddhiman Saha will be Gujarat Titans’ top batters. In his 156-match IPL career, Saha has scored a century and 12 half-centuries. Miller has over 9600 T20 runs to his name, including four centuries.
Our batting recommendations for Sunrisers Hyderabad are Rahul Tripathi, Heinrich Klaasen, and Aiden Markram. Captain Markram averaged 47.63 in the IPL last season and is capable of devastating innings when at his best. Tripathi has the highest IPL score of 93.
Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Bowlers Worth Watching

Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, and T Natarajan are our bowling picks for Sunrisers Hyderabad. T Natarajan needs four wickets to reach 50 IPL dismissals in this game. Markande has already taken 12 wickets this season and will equal his best IPL season if he takes three more this year.

Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Toss Prediction
The wicket has been good at this venue, and we’ve seen teams put up big totals. The track hasn’t changed much in the second inning, and putting up a total is difficult. As a result, the winning side would have little hesitation in bowling first on this surface.
Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Pitch Report
With its flat surface and lightning-fast outfield, Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium has been a batsman’s paradise. On this surface, batsmen can hit through the line with ease. Spinners have done well here because the ball turns sharply. Fast bowlers would receive some help in the early stages of the game.
May 15 will be hot and humid in Ahmedabad, and we anticipate another belter of a track with little for the bowlers. The ball would strike the bat hard, providing several opportunities for the batsmen to score runs. To feel comfortable, the team batting first would need 190 runs.
Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Prediction
Sunrisers Hyderabad have paid the price for their ineffective bowling attack. The lack of consistency in the top order has harmed the team even more.
