Gujarat and Rajasthan meet in a battle of extremes to determine the table-toppers

GT vs RR: As the two finalists of the 2022 IPL meet for the first time in the latest edition of the tournament, Gujarat Titans would be hoping to replicate their earlier success against the high-flying Rajasthan Royals as Ahmedabad plays host to what can be the perfect tie to act as the Sunday evening blockbuster.

The Gujarat Titans would be coming to this fixture on the back of a fine win against the Punjab Kings that was steered adeptly by their opener, Shubman Gill who had to dig deep in order to deliver the reigning champions out of a potential predicament. Despite the chase seeming well in reach, things spiralled out of control real fast for the Titans against the Kings only for Gill and David Miller to safely brings things back under control.

The Royals would also be coming fresh to this battle on the back of a thrilling win against the Chennai Super Kings where Sandeep Sharma brought forth all his expertise, stalling the hallowed duo of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja from racking up 7 runs from the final 3 balls despite a couple of sixes earlier in that final over. Their batting was once again impeccable and the spinning duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal were equally brilliant to cripple the chase for CSK but then a late charge from MS saw Chennai finishing within touching distance of the winning margin.


Considering the strength that both the teams bring to the platter and the unstoppable form that they are in at the moment, this will be an encounter to savour and perfectly does the justice of delivering gilt-edged entertainment to crowds on a bustling Sunday evening.
