The 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) playoffs are over and the finals will start on Tuesday with the Gujarati Titans squaring against the Rajasthan Royals in Eden Gardens, Kolkata, on Tuesday. GT finished League level at the top while RR was second. Weather can play spoilsport in Qualifier 1 and if a full match does not take place, then Super Over will decide the winner. If even Super Over cannot be achieved, then the GT will pass as they move up the table in the standings at the League stage.
Here is the XI predicted for GT against RR:
Wriddhiman Saha: Right-hand Batter is in good form as he has registered 312 runs in nine games with half-sixty-three. It has always provided strong starters at the top.
Shubman Gill: The Batter has the ability to perform both attack and anchor effects. In 14 matches, he has 403 runs this season including four half-years. The highest score is 96 and therefore has the potential to last long.
Matthew Wade: Left-handed Australia is struggling to get going. Even though, he had a tough decision against the RCB, the batter failed to go in other matches and therefore even dropped from XI playing for some matches. It will be interesting to see if Gujarat stays with him for the special renovation game.
Hardik Pandya: Team leader this season, Hardik has registered 413 runs and also has four wickets to his name. Gujarati will be hoping for their leader to rise in a major game.
David Miller: The left Australia has had a good IPL season after a long time and has been able to finish games for the franchise. Gujarati will expect Miller to continue with his form.
Rahul Tewatia: Batter on the left has been a showpiece as it has shown cool and quiet head under pressure conditions. Along with Miller, he has had some memorable relationships and has one that is a player who represents the team when the odds are stacked against them.
Rashid Khan: The Afghan wrestler has 18 wickets to his name and with it, he has made some winning cameos with the bat. Rashid’s economic performance has always been great and he is a player who can beat the team in the game itself.
Sai Kishore: The batter has been able to tie a knot and put in long shots, not allowing the batter to break away. In GT’s previous game against the RCB, he was able to control the run-off against the likes of Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis even when other players were dancing.
Lockie Ferguson: Pacer has had a mixed bag of time, but he will be able to calculate as before in the season, he managed to get the advantage of Jos Buttler through a slow yorker.
Yash Dayal: The Left has made a strong alliance with Mohammed Shami. Dayal can bowl with new and old football, so giving Hardik many options with the ball.
Mohammed Shami: Seamer is able to calculate with Powerplay overs and his stats at the beginning of the game are very good. In 14 matches, Shami had 18 wickets with a medal rate of 7.77 and an average of 22.89.
