IPL 2023 Match 7 Preview: Delhi Capitals Eyeing Victory against Gujarat Titans with Nortje and Ngidi’s Return
Written by Sanjay Kumar
The seventh match of IPL 2023 is scheduled for today (April 4) at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, where the Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans will face each other. It’s an exciting home game for the Delhi Capitals after a gap of three years.
Delhi experienced a 50-run loss against Lucknow Super Giants in their opening match, whereas Gujarat Titans secured a 5-wicket victory against Chennai Super Kings in the first match of IPL 2023 on March 31.
In their previous match, Delhi Capitals encountered significant challenges in both their bowling and batting, possibly due to the absence of some players. However, for today’s match, Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi will join the team, which should provide a much-needed boost to their bowling lineup.
Meanwhile, Gujarat Titans continued their winning streak from last season and emerged victorious in their opening match of the IPL 2023 season under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya. They defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by five wickets with four balls to spare. The Delhi franchise’s primary goal is to clinch a victory in their debut home game against the reigning champions.

The Arun Jaitley Stadium hosted a total of four IPL games in 2021, and the team chasing the total won three of these matches. The pitch here will likely remain balanced throughout the game, which means this might be an equally-contested game. The pacers will likely be more dominant than the spinners on Tuesday.
Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans Head to Head
As it’s common knowledge, the Gujarat Titans is a recently formed team, established in 2022. Therefore, there haven’t been many matches played between the Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans, and in fact, only one match was played in the last IPL season. Gujarat Titans won the match with ease, despite it being a high-scoring game.
We can anticipate a strong performance from the Delhi Capitals in today’s match, given the inclusion of two talented bowlers, Nortje and Ngidi. However, it’s worth noting that the Gujarat players won’t make it easy for DC. If we compare both teams, Gujarat Titans is expected to come out on top, but Delhi Capitals can take advantage of their home ground, especially with Nortje and Ngidi.
