Gujarat Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Match 40, IPL 2022
Event location: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Date Time: April 27th† 7:30 pm
Live Streaming: Star Sports Network for television and Disney + Hotstar app for live streaming.
Wankhede Stadium has been a high scoring wicket in the last few games and the short limits have enabled the batters to tackle the bowlers tactically. The captain who wins the toss will likely stick with the option to bowl first, as the dew factor will be one of the skipper’s headaches.

Likely top performers
Likely Best Hitter of the Match: Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya has been outstanding in the tournament so far and played another match-winning inning with the bat in the previous game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The righthander has already amassed 295 runs in six games in the season and has led the team from the front by taking on the responsibility of improving the order. He will likely play as a pure batter in the upcoming match as fitness seems to be an issue when he starts bowling.
Probably best bowler of the match: Lockie Ferguson
Lockie Ferguson cast a good spell in the previous game, conceding just 33 runs in his four overs and also taking one wicket. The fast right arm has continuously clocked high speeds and his slower ones have become much more effective as his pace has increased. Ferguson has the ability to take wickets when the captain needs him and he will strive to continue his impressive form.
