Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Gujarat Titans


A play-off berth is in sight for the Sunrisers Hyderabad as they face the eliminated Gujarat Titans in match #66 of the IPL 2024 campaign. This match at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Thursday will have the fourth-placed hosts go all out for a win to become the third qualifier.

The Sunrisers need just a point to confirm a top-four spot, while a win could see them get into top-two contention. Regardless, their batters have shown a great appetite for big hits, and that could continue here. I am putting my money on Hyderabad scoring the most sixes in the match.

  • Sunrisers Hyderabad have hit the most sixes in 8 of their last 12 matches (IPL)
  • Sunrisers Hyderabad have hit the most sixes in their last 4 home matches (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have hit a league-low 5.6 sixes per match this season (IPL)
  • Gujarat Titans have conceded the most sixes in 10 of their last 11 completed matches (IPL)

Head to Head


The Gujarat Titans played the Sunrisers Hyderabad four times prior, with three wins for the Titans and one win for the Sunrisers. The last three matches between these sides were won by Gujarat.

That included a seven-wicket win in Ahmedabad earlier in the season. The Sunrisers posted 162 for 8 batting first, with no batter scoring more than 29. The Titans strolled past the target in the last over, with David Miller and Sai Sudharsan scoring 40s each.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Form


The Sunrisers Hyderabad are fourth in the standings with 14 points from 12 matches. They need a single point to confirm a playoff spot, while two wins will put them in contention for a top-two finish.

The hosts won their last match by 10 wickets against the Lucknow Super Giants, smashing the 166-run target in just 9.4 overs. With four wins out of five at this venue, the home team is making all the right noises.

The belligerence of openers Travis Head (533 runs) and Abhishek Sharma (401 runs) has helped the Sunrisers put the bowlers to the sword. Natarajan (15 wickets) and Pat Cummins (14) have been their leading lights with the ball.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team News


The Sunrisers gave a debut to Sri Lankan spinner Viyaskanth in the last match, and he could continue here.

Gujarat Titans Form


The Gujarat Titans are eighth in the standings, with 11 points from 13 matches. Their abandoned match against the Kolkata Knight Riders saw them crash out of the playoff race.

Before that game, the Titans had lost three out of four, although they had won their last completed match against the Chennai Super Kings. Regardless, they would now want to end their season on a high by winning this finale.

Sai Sudharsan (527) continues to impress for the Titans with his batting, while bowlers have struggled for consistency with Mohit Sharma’s 13 wickets coming at 10.89 runs per over.

Gujarat Titans Team News


There are no injury concerns for the Titans, who are likely to continue with the team that won them the game against Chennai.

Verdict

The Sunrisers are on the verge of confirming their playoff spot, and on a larger scale, they are looking to push for a top-two spot. The net run rate is their ally, so getting two wins out of the last two could work in their favor. The Titans will look to finish on a high themselves, but it is the aggressive batters of the Sunrisers that give them an edge. I am backing Sunrisers Hyderabad to score the most match 6s.
