On Wednesday, Gujarat Titans (GT) and Delhi Capitals (DC) will lock horns at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This match carries significant weight for both sides, given their inconsistent performances in the tournament so far. 

GT's recent thrilling victory against Rajasthan Royals has boosted their confidence in handling pressure situations. 

Meanwhile, DC bounced back from a series of losses by securing a crucial win against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), lifting them from the bottom of the table to ninth place.

DC has struggled with bowling issues, presenting a notable challenge for the team. Conversely, GT boasts a strong batting lineup, with their opening batters excelling in the current season.

 For DC, winning this match is crucial to maintain their hopes for a playoff spot, adding intrigue to how they will rise to the challenge. Both teams aim to build momentum following their recent victories. 

David Warner will be unavailable for the Capitals, while David Miller is set to return for the Titans.

When GT last faced DC

In their past encounters, GT has prevailed over DC twice, with DC securing a victory in their most recent clash in Ahmedabad. Let's revisit that match.

After opting to bat first, the Capitals were struggling at 23/5 within 5 overs. To turn the tide in their favour, they needed a strong sense of self-belief despite the daunting challenge they faced.

A crucial partnership emerged between Axar Patel (27) and Aman Khan (51), worth 50 runs off 54 balls. This partnership, coupled with Ripal Patel's brisk cameo (23), propelled DC to a total of 130/8, a score that many doubted would be sufficient.

In response, GT also faced early setbacks and were struggling at 32/4. However, then skipper Hardik Pandya's resilient innings of 59 not out off 53 balls kept their hopes alive. Rahul Tewatia added a quickfire 20 runs off just 7 balls. 

Despite their efforts, Ishant Sharma and Khaleel Ahmed’s two-fers ensured that the defending champions held on to victory, with GT finishing at 125/6.
