DC vs GT Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 7 | DC vs GT Dream11 Prediction Today | Delhi Pitch Report

IPL without Rishabh Pant did not start well for Delhi Capitals, losing convincingly to Lucknow over the weekend. The silver lining for Capitals fans today is that Delhi regularly responded to defeats last season, often winning after losing. David Warner, Ricky Ponting and Sourav Ganguly is an excellent leadership core, so expect a bounceback by DC today.

However, it won’t be easy. Champions Gujarat Titans started 2023 in the same manner, with an efficient last-over win on IPL 2023’s opening night. The loss of Kane Williamson to an injury is a blow to both he and the franchise, but the Titans have the core and depth to cover effectively. Today will be a good test away at Delhi, with eyes on how the Capitals tackle Rashid Khan on a pitch that could provide some assistance for the spinners.

On The CricBlog Podcast, we shared our predictions for the IPL season. Watch here or below!

  • Feroz Kotla Shah Stadium, Delhi.

IPL 2023 Match 7: DC vs GT Possible Playing XIs

DC may stick with the same playing XI that lost to LSG. South Africa’s series against the Netherlands finished on Sunday, but Anrich Norje is set to play according to cricbuzz.

Mustafizur Rahman is with the squad, and he is an option for DC. He took 3/23 against GT last season.

Delhi Capitals: 1. David Warner (OS & c), 2. Prithvi Shaw, 3. Mitchell Marsh (OS), 4. Aman Khan, 5. Sarfaraz Khan (wk), 6. Rovman Powell (OS), 7. Axar Patel, 8. Kuldeep Yadav, 9. Chetan Sekariya, 10. Anrich Nortje (OS), 11. Khaleel Ahmed

Kane Williamson out of IPL 2023 due to injury. According to cricbuzz, David Miller should be available for the match. If he is not, then GT may play Matthew Wade.

Also, GT may play an extra spinner, i.e. R Sai Kishore or Jayant Yadav, if the pitch is on the dry side.

Gujarat Titans: 1. Shubman Gill, 2. Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 3. Sai Sudharsan, 4. Hardik Pandya (c), 5. David Miller/Matthew Wade (OS), 6. Rahul Tewatia, 7. Rashid Khan (OS), 8. Mohammed Shami, 9. Josh Little (OS), 10. Yash Dayal/R Sai Kishore/Jayant Yadav, 11. Alzarri Joseph (OS)

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Delhi Capitals:

  • David Warner averages 30.56 with a strike rate of 122.59 in 31 matches on this ground. Also, he has scored an impressive 99 runs off 68 balls against Mohammed Shami in T20s, dismissed twice.
  • Prithvi Shaw also has solid numbers against Shami. He has been dismissed once, but has scored 40 off 28 balls.
  • Shaw at Feroz Shah Kotla: 14 inns, 364 runs, avg. 26.00, SR 143.31.
  • Mitchell Marsh had a superb recent ODI series against India. He smashed 194 runs in three matches at a strike rate of 131.08.
  • Khaleel Ahmed was impressive in the powerplay against LSG. He will be key against Shubman Gill, whom he has dismissed twice in 25 deliveries in the IPL (38 runs). He has also dismissed Hardik Pandya twice in eight balls.
  • Kuldeep Yadav has taken 28 wickets in 22 T20s since the start of 2022. He is averaging 20.71, and he should enjoy conditions at Delhi.

Gujarat Titans:

  • Shubman Gill started IPL 2023 in strong fashion with 63 vs CSK. Last season against DC, he smashed 84 off 46 balls. Overall against Delhi, Gill has scored 352 runs in ten matches at an average of 35.20 and strike rate of 129.89.
  • Gill has never been dismissed by DC’s spin duo Axar (72 off 51 balls) and Kuldeep (29 off 18 balls). So, getting through the powerplay will be key.
  • Hardik Pandya, who struck the fourth-most runs in IPL 2022 (487), strikes at 195.71 in eight innings at the Feroz Shah Kotla (137 runs).
  • Gujarat may keep overs for Rashid Khan to use against Rovman Powell. Since the start of 2022, Powell has been dismissed 12 times in 202 deliveries against legspin (247 runs).
  • Rashid vs DC: 13 inns, 16 wickets, avg. 19.00, econ. 5.85.
  • Mohammed Shami has taken 22 wickets in 17 IPL innings since the start of 2022. He is striking every 17.7 deliveries.
  • 12 of Shami’s 22 wickets have come in the powerplay. He is conceding just 6.60 per over in this phase. So, his battle against the DC top order promises to be fascinating.
  • Alzarri Joseph has taken 59 wickets in just 41 T20s since the start of 2022. 18 of these wickets have come between overs 7-16, where he was excellent in the first game against CSK.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 1, DC 0, GT 1.
  • David Warner has never faced Rashid Khan in T20s. In ODIs, he has faced 26 balls and scored 30 runs without dismissal.
  • Rovman Powell is striking at 200 between overs 17 and 20 in franchise T20s this year.
  • Hardik Pandya (SR 116), Vijay Shankar (SR 114) and Rahul Tewatia (SR 56) have been slow against left-arm spin since IPL 2019. So, watch out for Axar Patel.
  • Wriddhiman Saha has a strike rate of 134.74 in 14 innings against Delhi Capitals. He has scored 25 off 14 balls against Kuldeep in the IPL (one dismissal).

Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium Delhi Pitch Report and Weather

How the Delhi surface plays early in IPL 2023 will be interesting to see. A fresh, true pitch is expected. Last year, South Africa chased 212 in a T20I against India.

In the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in November 2021, the average first innings score was 140.56.

There is a chance of some showers in Delhi on Tuesday, but the match should hopefully be unaffected.
