The 40th match of IPL 2024 witnessed a thrilling clash between the Delhi Capitals and the Gujarat Titans. With Gujarat winning the toss and opting to chase, the stage was set for an exciting encounter at the center.

Delhi Capitals began their innings with a bang, as Prithvi Shaw and Jake Fraser-McGurk showcased exemplary batting prowess, accumulating 35 runs for the first wicket in just 3.2 overs. Fraser-McGurk, with his aggressive strokeplay, entertained the crowd with two fours and two sixes before departing for a promising 23 off 14 balls.

However, the joy was short-lived for Delhi, as Sandeep Warrier, the spearhead of Gujarat’s bowling attack, struck twice in the same over, removing both openers and putting Delhi on the back foot. Despite the setback, Delhi sent Axar Patel up the order in a bid to accelerate the run rate and provide stability to the innings.
