GT vs SRH: After suffering a defeat against MI, Gujarat Titans (GT), the reigning champions of the Indian Premier League 2023, are preparing themselves for their 13th match of the season. Led by Hardik Pandya, the GT team is ready to face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) captained by Aiden Markram at the renowned Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Monday, May 15th.
As the league stage nears its end, GT is fully prepared to take advantage of their two remaining opportunities to secure a place in the final. They understand the importance of not letting their guard down and will be back in Ahmedabad on Monday, May 15th, aiming to add two more points to their tally and secure a top-two position.
On the other hand, SRH currently finds themselves in the ninth position with little at stake. While they technically still have a chance, their current total of eight points means they can only reach a maximum of 14 points, which would bring net run rate into consideration. However, their net run rate stands at a disappointing -0.471.
