With the Gujarat Titans (GT) coming into the IPL just a couple of seasons ago, they haven’t played much against the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). However, in the GT vs RCB clashes. The former are ahead with a 2-1 winning margin.

Gujarat has been inconsistent throughout this IPL 2024. Even after nine games in this event, they are yet to win two back-to-back fixtures. One of the reasons behind these could be their wicket-taking abilities in the middle overs (7-15). Their 17 wickets in this period during the IPL 2024, is at the penultimate position.

Because they don’t make damage on the opposite side, they come back to haunt them. In their last game against Delhi Capitals, they were wicketless in this period and ended up investing 97 runs in the last five overs.

For RCB, the concern is in their death over bowling. Going into the GT vs RCB clash, they have picked up just 10 wickets, the lowest in this period. In the first six overs, their 10.74 economy is the second highest among all the teams in this IPL 2024. This means teams got off to a good start, and ended highly against this Bengaluru side.

GT vs RCB Pitch Report:

In the only afternoon game at this ground in this IPL 2024, the pitch behaved slowly. The ball wasn’t coming onto the bat nicely in the GT vs SRH encounter. The back of the length balls were gripping on the surface, making the big shots hard to come. In the evening, under the lights, it settled down quite nicely, to make batting an easy task.

Best Batter Prediction: Shubman Gill.

Shubman Gill’s record in this Narendra Modi Stadium has been outstanding. His 833 IPL runs at an average of more than 64 at a strike rate of close to 160 with a couple of centuries in this ground have impressed everyone. He also has 304 runs in this IPL at a strike rate of nearly 150, and he could come with all guns blazing in the GT vs RCB battle.

Best Bowler Prediction: Mohit Sharma.

After a tough battle, Mohit Sharma could make a great comeback on this ground. He has picked up 26 wickets in 10 innings at an economy of under eight and an average of around 11 on this surface. His variations and the slower deliveries would make it tough for the batters.
