IPL 2024: SRH vs GT, Match 66 – Top 3 player battles to watch out for

IPL 2024 SRH vs GT, Match 66 - Top 3 player battles to watch out for

In the 66th game of the Indian Premier League 2024, Sunrisers Hyderabad are going to host the Gujarat Titans. It is surely a must-win game for the hosts if they want to stay in contention for the play-offs later next week.

Even though the visitors are eliminated, they will be looking to spoil the party for the other teams. As of now, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have the faith in their own hands with two games remaining. But any slip-ups would surely give others a chance to climb up the points table.

Ahead of this crucial encounter in the Indian Premier League 2024, let’s take a look at the three battles to watch out for during the game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans.

Here are the top three player battles to watch out for ahead of SRH vs GT clash:

3. Travis Head vs Sandeep Warrier

One of the in-form batters of the tournament, Travis Head has been dominating the batting charts in his own fashion. He is batting with a very high strike rate and has ensured that he gets the best start to the innings for his franchise.

The Australian opener would be looking to dominate the Gujarat Titans tomorrow but it would be a tough task as their new ball bowler, Sandeep Warrier might be standing in his way. The pacer has a knack for taking early wickets and this is the game in which his side would want the early wickets to come. This battle would decide which team has the early momentum in the match and can shape up the proceedings accordingly.

2. Heinrich Klaasen vs Rashid Khan

Prior to the tournament, a lot of expectations were shouldered upon Heinrich Klaasen to perform with the bat. He has had some good performances with the bat but consistency has been an issue for him this campaign. The South African wicketkeeper-batter would be hoping to get good runs for his side in this must-win encounter against Gujarat Titans.

Standing in his way would be one of the best spinners in the world, Rashid Khan. Gujarat Titans would be hopeful that the leg spinner can scalp the wicket of the dangerous wicketkeeper-batter during the middle overs and reduce the run-scoring by maintaining his good economy.

1. Shubman Gill vs Pat Cummins

The battle of the skippers is surely one to watch out for as India’s upcoming batter Shubman Gill will be pitted against the global superstar of Australian cricket, Pat Cummins. Both the players are known to deliver great performances for their side from time to time and with the business end of the season approaching, the fans would want the skippers to be at their best.

It has been a decent campaign with the bat for Gill and is coming into the game on the back of a century and would be hoping for another spectacular performance with the bat against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Australian pacer would be hoping to scalp the wicket of Team India’s batter early on to give the team the early confidence they need during this crucial fixture.
