Both Gujarat and Rajasthan have started this season positively and are looking like early contenders for playoffs. This match winner could well go on to move away from the tight top-half batch making this a proverbial four-pointer. I am backing this match to be a tight affair in the first-six overs. My pick is Rajasthan Royals to score more runs in the first six overs.

Head to Head


There have only been three matches between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals, all coming in the last season.

The league match saw the Titans win by 37 runs before winning the Qualifier I by seven wins to make it to the final. They also went on to meet in the final which Gujarat won by seven wickets.

Gujarat Titans Form


Gujarat Titans have six points from four matches with three wins in this season. All their wins have come while chasing with their lone loss against Kolkata coming when they batted first.

Shubman Gill continued from the last season and leads their batting charts with 183 runs at a SR of 141.86 with Sai Sudharsan next with 156 runs. With the ball, Rashid Khan’s nine is their best with Mohammed Shami and Alzarri Joseph picking up seven wickets each.

The pieces have been falling in place for Gujarat really well with even their bench players making good contributions.

Gujarat Titans Team News


Mohit Sharma got a game for Gujarat in their last match and could continue after winning the ‘Player of the match.’ Unless they want to make a change with Joshua, there’s very ‘Little’ for them to worry about.

Rajasthan Royals Form


Rajasthan Royals also have six points this season with a better run-rate which explains their superior position to the Titans. Their lone defeat has come against Punjab Kings.

Batting for the Royals has been all about Jos Buttler (204) and Yashasvi Jaiswal (135) while Yuzvendra Chahal (10) has been among the wickets consistently.

The question for the Royals would be to find runs from the middle-order especially as Sanju Samson has found the going tough in the last two matches.

Rajasthan Royals Team News


Three spinners were a need in their last match for the Royals but could be a luxury here. Trent Boult missed the last match with a niggle and could be fit for this match replacing Zampa.
