Gujarat vs Delhi Highlights: Here’s What Went Down


We have outlined what makes the Gujarat vs Delhi highlights worthy to be watched by every cricket fan as Gujarat Titans succumbed to Delhi Capitals’ supreme bowling that too in their home ground, the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

Gujarat vs Delhi Highlights: Here’s What Went Down

GT have now slipped to 7th spot in the points table. Shubman Gill and co lost the plot completely as they batted first. They were bundled out for the 89 in 17.3 overs. This is the lowest team total of the 2024 season.

Rashid Khan was Gujarat’s top scorer with 31 runs. The Ahmedabad wicket did not offer much to the bowlers, it was more of a case of batsmen throwing their wickets away rather cheaply.

Started from the top with captain Gill, who misjudged a slower ball from Ishant Sharma, hitting it straight to Prithvi Shaw at short cover.

Some excellent glove work from Delhi skipper Rishabh Pant set the tone for the game as well.

It took Delhi Capitals only 8.3 overs to chase it down and claim another two points in the away fixture. Pant’s men are now ranked 6th in the points table. Chasing it down in a small period has helped them improve their net run rate.

Both GT and DC have won just three of their seven games, but it’s their run rate that has put Delhi (-0.07) just above Gujarat (-1.3) in the table.

Gujarat vs Delhi Highlights: Pant Claims POTM Award

Rishabh Pant looked like a million dollars with his performance in both halves of the contest. He registered four dismissals in the game and remained unbeaten at 16 (11) to claim the Player of the Match award.

His diving catch to dismiss David MIller showed how fit he has become once again after returning to the sport after a long hiatus.

Moreover, it is his captaincy that has become more prominents, especially the utilization of his bowlers.

He is seen getting back to his rhythm. At times, when you look at him galloping from one place to another while keeping, it shows how hard he has worked in the rehab to get back to where he once was before the car crash.

Mukesh Rules Ahmedabad

In Gujarat vs Delhi highlights, Mukesh Kumar has been a decent addition to the Delhi team. His three-wicket haul jolted Gujarat from the beginning. His first wicket of a struggling Wriddhiman Saha provided an early breakthrough for the visitors.

Shubman Gill had already walked back to the hut, thanks to Ishant Sharma so Mukesh upped the pressure on Gujarat by sending the other opener back to the dressing room as well.

Although the wicket did not have much movement to offer, Mukesh stuck to the good length and kept chipping wickets in important phases of the first half.

He went on to dismiss a dangerous looking Rashid Khan as the Afghan star nicked the bouncer straight to Pant. Noor Ahmed was the final victim of Mukesh who got his stumps rattled.

Mukesh Rules Ahmedabad

Mukesh’s figures of 3/14 in 2.3 overs were sensationally assisted by Ishant Sharma’s 2/8 in two overs he bowled. Axar Patel was economical as always, conceding only 17 in his quota and taking one wicket as well.

Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed had a similar outing. He bowled the only maiden over of the match to end his night with fantastic figures of 1/18 in four overs.

Tristan Stubbs was a surprise entry in the bowling line-up. The South African all-rounder took two wickets in the only over he bowled, conceding 11 off it. He dismissed Abhinav Manohar and Shahrukh Khan.

Jake Fraser-McGurk Continues Fireworks

Australia’s young batting prodigy did not need a second invitation to get going. He revealed that the Delhi management had asked him to wrap the show in a quick span so that they can improve their net run-rate and Jake went for just that.

Although, he scored only 20 but it took him only 10 balls to do so. He set the platform for the new batsman to just come and continue to put the pressure on the bowlers, who already have nothing to defend.

He made his IPL debut a game ago with a bang where he scored 55.

In Gujarat vs Delhi highlights against Gujarat, he opened his account with a six over the bowler’s head. The best thing about the batting of this South Australia star is his fiery handling of bowlers.

Jake has become a T20 sensation in no time, from domestic cricket back home to Big Bash and now making his mark in India as well.

Gujarat vs Delhi highlights,What Now For Gujarat Titans?

Gujarat’s middle order will have to take more responsibility if their openers fail. Shubman Gill has been in a fine touch, but lack of support from middle order has hurt them in accumulating big totals.

Gujarat vs Delhi highlights,What Now For Gujarat Titans?

They have enough firepower with the ball, but lack of runs have often put them behind in big games.

With the season progressing into a crucial stage and the team languishing at the seventh spot, they will have to make some progress before big changes are made in the batting line-up.

Saha has not been playing up to the mark this season. He starts well but often fails to make a big impact on the back of a blistering start.

Rashid Khan has come in with the abt and saved them too many times. It isn’t his job to step up everytime the middle-order fails. Even in the game against DC, it was him who struck the Delhi bowlers around like a walk in the park, as if showing the Gujarat batters how it is done.

Gujarat will definitely have to revisit their game plan with head coach Ashish Nehra.

They have brought in three different wicket keepers in the last three games (BR Sharath against LSG, Matthew Wade against RR and Saha against DC) and all three have failed to make a mark.
