Gujarat Titans vs Rajasthan Royals IPL 2022 Qualifier 1 top picks

GT: Captain Hardik Pandya (413 runs from 13 matches) has been leading Gujarat Titans from the front with bat and ball. Rashid Khan (18 wickets from 14 matches) and Mohammed Shami (18 wickets from 14 matches), meanwhile, have been clinical with spin and pace, respectively. 

Gujarat Titans will rely heavily on the opening pair of Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill to provide them with a good start. 

RR: Orange cap holder Jos Buttler with scores of 2, 2 and 7 in his last three innings has gone silent. However, if the English world cup winner clicks, there’s not much Gujarat Titans would be able to do. The spin combo of R Ashwin and purple cap holder Yuzvendra Chahal are other players who could win the games for Rajasthan single-handedly. 

Gujarat Titans vs Rajasthan Royals prediction

Gujarat Titans have the bookies’ backing due to their consistent performances. However, they have lost the last three of their five matches. Rajasthan Royals, meanwhile, are coming into the match with a series of strong performances despite Jos Buttler’s poor form off late.
