Pitch Report RR vs GT
This is likely to get out of hand quickly. There isn’t much for seam bowlers to accomplish on this pitch. It’s not going to work for you, seamers if you dig in. They should be able to score 170-180 runs batting first, which is quite defendable. Dew will not be as much of a problem as it was earlier in the IPL because the outfield has been treated again.
Shubman Gill: Shubman Gill, a Punjabi opener, has received widespread acclaim for his performances in India’s U19 team’s world cup victory in 2018. In 62 matches in IPL, he scored 1604 runs with 12 fifties.
Shimron Hetmyer: Shimron Hetmyer’s six-hitting skills endeared him to the Indian crowd during the Windies’ limited-overs tour of India in 2018.
The Delhi Capitals purchased the left-handed batter for INR 7.75 crores for the IPL 2020 season, after he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2019.
He led his squad to victory over a spirited Indian team in the 2016 edition of the game. Hetmyer did not have much success with the bat in the IPL 2020, despite scoring 242 runs in 14 games from 144 balls.
Hetmyer, who was signed for a record 8.5 crore before the start of the 15th season, will now play for RR and will be expected to help anchor the middle order and go big towards the end once again. There will be a lot of pressure on him this season.
Conclusion: RR is way ahead and GT will fight back and win the game.
