The DC vs GT IPL 2024 reverse fixture will be played in New Delhi on April 24, Wednesday. The match starts at 7.30 pm IST and is the second game at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi. 

DC vs GT Team Analysis

Delhi Capitals 

GT is placed sixth while DC is eighth heading into this game. The season is well past the halfway mark and teams in the bottom half of the points table need some crucial points. DC is returning to to their actual home ground where they lost to SRH to start.

The Capitals should take confidence from the game where they bowled out GT for 89 runs. The senior players of the side need to take more responsibilities with bat and ball. 

Gujarat Titans 

Like DC, GT also has been an inconsistent side. They have lost four and won four out of the 8 games they have played so far. Their previous win was against Punjab Kings where they had to scrape through in a chase of 143.

They won the game in the final over of the run-chase. GT was outplayed in the previous game against DC and this is where the Capitals can derive their confidence from. 

DC vs GT Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

The DC vs SRH game was the first game played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium this season. The Kotla track was previously a lowe slower track in the IPL where the spinners made merry.

However, over the years, this too like the other grounds in India has become a betting-friendly one. The small ground dimensions work perfectly in favor of the batters who look to hit fours and sixes. 

Form and Fitness 

Speaking about form from players of both teams has not been a consistent one. However, speaking about Gujarat Titans, they have found players who have stood up in testing times from the team.

Fitness-wise, David Miller is back for GT in the last game. Meanwhile, Mitchell Marsh has been ruled out from the remainder of the tournament for DC. GT's bowlers have been better at perfecting their skills as compared to DC.

Tactical Acumen

Captains from both needs need to play with the ground dimensions and it is bout damage limitation at this venue. The young captains will need to minimize boundaries which is why how they use their spinners will be an interesting observation.

An important game more so for the Delhi Capitals who are placed eighth on the points table to string up a few wins in the back end of the season.
