Gujarat will be up against Hyderabad in the 12th game of the Indian T20 League 2024. The two teams have had a contrasting journey in the league till now. While Hyderabad lost the first match in a thriller, they won the second match in a roaring fashion. Against Kolkata in their first match, Hyderabad lost by just four runs. But they made a stellar comeback and won against Mumbai in the following game by 31 runs. Gujarat has had a totally opposite campaign till now. They won the first game against Mumbai by just six runs at home. 

Touring Chennai, they were totally outclassed by the home team, who restricted Gujarat to 143 defending a target of 207 runs. A 63-run loss has dented the net run rate and confidence of the 2022 champions. They have a lot to think about as they head back home to take on Hyderabad who have looked the best they have been in the last 4-5 seasons. The 2016 champions just registered a record breaking score of 277 against Mumbai in the previous game. They would be high on confidence despite conceding 246 runs as a bowling unit. It’s their batting which has come to the party in both the matches.

In the first game against Kolkata, they nearly chased 209. The key for Hyderabad would be to bowl better as a unit. Barring Pat Cummins, other bowlers have been ordinary in the two matches. For Gujarat, the concerns would be their batting. Their star batters like David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Wriddhiman Saha, and others look to be out of touch. The only one scoring runs for them, Sai Sudarsan, has been batting slow. The 2023 finalists need to be better as a batting unit. At Ahmedabad, one can expect a gold match between the two former champions.

Gujarat vs Hyderabad Head-to-Head

Gujarat and Hyderabad have been up against each other in the ITL in three instances. Gujarat has an upper hand, winning two of those games. Hyderabad has managed to beat Gujarat only once in the league. This would be a good opportunity for them to equal the terms as far as the head-to-head record in concerned.

Narendra Modi Stadium Pitch Report

There are usually two major types of surfaces at Ahmedabad – Red top and a Black top. In the last season, Gujarat used red soil pitches mostly, which have a great carry for the pacers and a bit of extra bounce and seam on offer. They were good for batting. In the ongoing season, a black soil pitch was rolled out for the match between Gujarat and MI.

While the batters found it easy to strike the new hard ball, it was difficult to time the soft ball. With the progression of the innings, slower ones and cutters stuck to the pitch. If what transpired in the first match is to happen again, batters might have a difficult time.
