IPL 2024: Gujarat Titans vs Delhi Capitals Best Bets

Match 32 of IPL 2024 will see Shubman Gill’s Gujarat take on Rishab Pant’s Delhi Capitals on Wednesday at the Narendra Modi Stadium.


Match 32 of IPL 2024 will see Shubman Gill’s Gujarat take on Rishab Pant’s Delhi Capitals on Wednesday at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Both teams will be desperate for the win, with playoff spots on the line. We’ve prepared the best bets for this encounter.

Betting Preview

Despite chasing nearly 200 against the league’s most economical bowling unit, Gujarat Titans have revived their campaign with a 3/3 record, securing key victories at home against Mumbai and Hyderabad. Now, they face Delhi Capitals, one of the IPL 2024 teams with the poorest economic rates, providing an excellent opportunity for further momentum.
The Titans have a solid yet not flawless 8/5 record at Narendra Modi Stadium and have unpleasant memories from their only home game against Delhi, where they lost despite Delhi only setting a target of 130, the lowest ever successfully defended at the venue. Currently, the Titans are the slowest scoring team in the league, with Shubman Gill being the exception, while Sai Sudharsan and Rahul Tewatia have struggled to score quickly.

Delhi Capitals, on the brink of missing the playoffs after losing four of their first five matches, kept their hopes alive by winning a challenging match in Lucknow. While their seamers struggled, spinners Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav capitalised on the conditions to limit their runs effectively. Inspired by Noor Ahmad’s recent performance of 2/32 for Gujarat, Delhi’s spinners could be pivotal in Ahmedabad, despite historically modest figures against Gujarat.

Delhi enters this game with a high team economy rate of over 10 runs per over, with fast bowlers Ishant Sharma, Mukesh Kumar, and Anrich Nortje being particularly expensive. However, Kuldeep and Axar have been the standout bowlers for Delhi, both in terms of wickets and economy, suggesting they might once again play key roles in this matchup.
Home ground advantage will be pivotal in this game for Gujarat against a struggling Delhi Capitals side who’ll be without their talisman, David Warner.

Prediction: Gurarat Titans to win at 1.68.

Key BattleShubman Gill remains the king of Narendra Modi Stadium after a glistening 89* from 48 balls against Punjab, and he now has more than twice as many IPL runs at the ground as any other single player. That was his sixth 50+ score from his last 12 starts there. Against the five bowlers Delhi used in their last match, he also averages 95 at a strike rate of 144! The only Delhi bowler with success against him is Khaleel Ahmed, who took 2-24 (albeit against two other batters) in Delhi’s away win last year. He’s yet to be held wicketless in the 2024 IPL, picking exactly 1-2 wickets in all six games.
