One win is enough for GT to get officially qualified for the Playoffs. They are down with the loss they faced against MI. But still, the loss came after the hard fight. Rashid Khan’s heroic knock showed that they were the champions team. So it will be an obvious game for GT to fight. Meanwhile, SRH, which was worried about their lack of finishing technique, will be eager to overcome that point. A win against a big team at this point will boost their players’ egos.
Time: 7.30 PM IST
Venue : Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad
A good batting wicket which will make us witness a high scoring game. And also, fast bowlers will find it good to bowl on this deck.
What to Expect?
GT is a strong home team so far. Since SRH isn’t finding the batting combo well, this could mostly be GT’s game while SRH bats. Even with the spin department, GT is outstanding with Rashid and Noor. So GT obviously has the edge over SRH.

Henrich Klaasen(wk), Mayank Agarwal, Glenn Philips, Rahul Tripathi, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram(C), Abdul Samad, T Natarajan, Fazalhaq Farooqi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Vivant Sharma, Mayank Markande
GT Possible XI:

Fantasy Picks for the GT vs SRH Match
Captain : Gill
Comparatively this is the best year of IPL of runs and average. It was so delightful to watch him bat. With the current form he is in, he is undoubtedly the big pick for us.
Vice captain : Rashid
Rashid never misses to make wonders with the ball. What he did with the bat in the last game showed how good an all round player he is.
Wicket keepers : Saha, Phillips
Saha is finding great touch with his sword. He will try to make it big with a team that is filled with many pacers.
Phillips who walks during the death overs will have optune time to go for what he used to do often.
Batsmen : Gill, Miller, Tripathi
Miller has the habit of stepping up whenever it demands or whenever he has been given the chance to bat. He has been in such a good state of form right now.
Tripathi will be the most trusted batter from Hyderabad because of what he has done in the past.
All rounders : Markram, H Pandya, Shankar
Hardik and Shankar are the most dependent batters of GT when things aren’t easy.
Markram is known for playing well against good bowling sides and GT is one of its kind.
Bowlers : Rashid, Shami, Bhuvneshwar
Both the Indian pace bowlers are known for their experience. Their matured contributions to the team makes a huge impact.
