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

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan April 26, 2022

Gujarat will lock horns with Hyderabad, who are on a five-match winning streak, in match 40 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. A half-century from captain Hardik Pandya and impressive performances from the bowlers helped Gujarat beat Kolkata by eight runs in their last game. Meanwhile, Hyderabad decimated Bangalore on Saturday to clinch a fifth successive win and climb to playoff places. 

We pick five First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Gujarat-Hyderabad match. 


Shubman Gill hasn't been able to find his golden touch since the match-winning 96 against Punjab. The Gujarat batter made just 27 runs from the last four innings. Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson is fourth in his franchise's batting charts this season. He has amassed 143 runs at a strike rate of 94.70 in seven innings. 

Verdict: S Gill is likely to rediscover his form and pick up more fantasy points than K Williamson.


David Miller hit back at his critics with scores of 31*, 94*, and 27 in Gujarat's last three matches. It is the first time since the 2019 season the South African batter crossed 200 runs in Indian T20 League. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, too, has been impressive in the 15th edition. He picked up eight wickets in his last five appearances for Hyderabad. 

Verdict: B Kumar could clinch this Match-Up against D Miller.

Did You Know? B Kumar grabbed 52 fantasy points in the Hyderabad-Gujarat clash on April 11


Mohammed Shami has made an early inroad in Gujarat's last two matches. The Indian pacer dismissed Sam Billings and Sunil Narine in his opening spell against Kolkata. Meanwhile, Lockie Ferguson took nine wickets at an economy rate of 8.32 from seven matches. He gave away 79 runs and took only one wicket in his previous two outings.

Verdict: On recent form, M Shami has the advantage over L Ferguson.


Rashid Khan ended a two-match wicketless run with figures of 2/22 against Kolkata. He has taken eight wickets in seven outings in his maiden Indian T20 League campaign. Jansen's teammate Umran Malik has bagged eight wickets in the last four matches. The wicket of Shahbaz Ahmed against Bangalore saw him clinch his tenth wicket of the season. 

Verdict: Given his impressive streak, U Malik could win against R Khan.


Wriddhiman Saha and Nicholas Pooran will take on each other in a Match-Up of wicket-keepers. The Gujarat custodian made 25 runs and took four catches - a total of 65 fantasy points - against Kolkata on Saturday. Pooran, on the other hand, has played with a lot of responsibility this season. He made 113 runs and took seven catches so far. 

Verdict: N Pooran is likely to emerge the winner in this Match-Up.
