The Gujarat Titans won the toss and elected to field first. Their decision set the stage for an intense battle between bat and ball.

“Opting to bowl first; we’ve been chasing well lately. This being my 100th IPL match is a milestone, but my focus is on winning tonight, which would put us in a better position.
Cricket has its ups and downs, but it’s crucial to stay mentally strong and focus on the present game, regardless of past results.”

Shubman Gill, GT Skipper

“Losing the toss isn’t a bad thing; we were planning to bat first anyway. We’re keeping it simple today, focusing on consistency throughout the game.
The pitch seems slower this time, and we’re hoping dew doesn’t become a factor like last time. Two changes: Shai Hope replaces David, and Sumit Kumar comes in for Lalit.”

Rishabh Pant, DC Skipper

“I think it is about instincts as a captain, it will come off sometimes and happy it worked today. Surely at 43/3, we wanted to just keep going and target their main spinners.
If we get something we will take it on and keep rotating the strike. Every day that I’m in the middle, I feel better. Every hour on the field matters, and I love being on the field. I think the first six in the match gives me confidence in a game. The more time I spend in the centre, the better I feel.”
