GT vs RR Team Previews

Gujarat Titans

After suffering a shock loss against the Kolkata Knight Riders, the Gujarat Titans are back to winning ways as they defeated the Punjab Kings in their latest fixture. A win here will take the team to the top-2 of the points table.

Shubhman Gill has been in good form for the Titans this season, scoring 2 half-centuries in 4 outings and is the top run-getter for the team and has received good support from the likes of Sai Sudharsan and Vijay Shankar. However, more will be expected from Wriddhiman Saha, who has got a couple of good starts but squandered them away.

Similarly, Hardik Pandya seems to be struggling with the bat. David Miller and Rahul Tewatia will be playing the role of finishers, while Rashid Khan is capable of playing some big shots too. Talking about the bowling, Mohit Sharma, who played his first match of the season in the previous game, bowled a brilliant spell, taking 2 wickets for just 18 runs.

We are likely to see him again here alongside Alzarri Joseph and Mohammad Shami. Rashid Khan, as usual, will spearhead the spin attack.

Rajasthan Royals

The Rajasthan Royals have played some excellent cricket this season, winning 3 of the 4 matches that they have played so far, and find themselves sitting comfortably in the top-4. However, these are early days in the tournament and they will be looking to put up even better performances in the upcoming matches.

Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler have been excellent for the Royals at the top of the order and will be looking to give the team yet another good start. Sanju Samson started his campaign on a positive note with the bat. However, he has scored back-to-back ducks and will be looking to bounce back here.

Similarly, Riyan Parag too has failed to get going so far. The Royals have two excellent finishers in the form of Shimron Hetmeyer and Dhruv Jurel. Hetmeyer in particular has been in excellent touch and will be looking to score some quick runs toward the end of the innings.

The spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal have been excellent for their team so far. Chahal has bagged 10 wickets in 4 matches and is leading the race for the Purple Cap. Jason Holder and Trent Boult are expected to lead the new-ball attack, while Sandeep Sharma, who bowled a superb spell against the Chennai Super Kings under pressure, will hold the key in the death overs.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium is excellent to bat on and has already hosted a couple of high-scoring encounters this season. That said, the surface does have some grass and a good bounce, providing movement to disciplined bowlers. The spinners too might get some turn if they hit the rough spots. Overall, it does remain a batting wicket and the team batting first will like to get as close to 200 as possible.

The weather is likely to remain clear with temperatures between 32-36 degrees Celsius.



GT vs RR Betting Tips

Looking at the form of both teams, this one is a pretty difficult match to call. However, we think that the visitors have a slight edge here. They have a pretty strong team at their disposal and have enjoyed good form this season. They have some excellent finishers in the team who are capable of scoring key runs at the death. Nevertheless, we are sure to have an exciting encounter on our hands.

Bet on the Rajasthan Royals to win.
