Indian T20 League 2022: Bangalore vs Gujarat Fantasy Cricket Match-Ups

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan May 18, 2022

In a must-win clash, Bangalore will play against table-toppers Gujarat at Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. The Faf du Plessis-led franchise, with a net run rate of -0.323, must register a big win and hope Mumbai do them a favor by beating Delhi. Also, a victory for Bangalore will automatically eliminate Punjab and Hyderabad.

Gujarat will be aiming to become the first franchise since Punjab in the 2014 season to pick up 11 wins in the league stage. They sealed a top-of-the-table finish after a resounding seven-wicket victory over Chennai on Sunday. 

We look at a few exciting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Indian T20 League match 67



Two players who picked up eight wickets from their respective last three matches square off in this Match-Up. Medium-pacer Harshal Patel claimed a four-wicket haul in the defeat against Punjab, while Rashid Khan took the catch to dismiss Moeen Ali and got the wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad against Chennai. Harshal could finish the match with more fantasy points than the Gujarat spinner. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season: 

H Patel - 49.83;  R Khan - 46.76



Glenn Maxwell continued to trouble batters in Indian T20 League 2022 as he dismissed Shikhar Dhawan in the powerplay in Bangalore's last outing. He also took a catch, enforced a run-out, and scored 35 runs. Wanindu Hasaranga, who has bagged a five-wicket haul at Wankhede Stadium, is second in the Purple Cap race with 23 wickets. Maxwell is likely to overcome Hasaranga in this Match-Up. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season: 

G Maxwell - 49.80;  W Hasaranga - 56.07



Dinesh Karthik takes on David Miller in an interesting Match-Up. The Bangalore wicket-keeper hasn't been prolific in the second half of the season. However, he has amassed 140 runs without being dismissed in three innings at Wankhede. Miller, on the other hand, made 20+ fantasy points in ten out of the 13 matches. Given his form at Wankhede Stadium, Karthik has the edge over the South African. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season: 

D Karthik - 37.76;  D Miller - 39.76



Shubman Gill has a challenge on his hands when he meets Wriddhiman Saha, who has been in red-hot form. Gill went past 400 runs for a third successive season after scoring 18 against Chennai. Meanwhile, Saha, the favorite in this Match-Up, has notched up three half-centuries in his last six innings and is 19 short of 300 runs in the tournament. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season: 

S Gill - 46.07; W Saha - 59.50


Bangalore's Rajat Patidar is up against Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya. The uncapped batter, who struck his maiden Indian T20 League fifty against Gujarat, has made crucial contributions with the bat for the three-time finalists. However, Hardik could clinch more points than Rajat in this Match-Up. He averages 33.71 against Bangalore. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season: 

R Patidar - 48.40;  H Pandya - 51.50
