Rajasthan Royals Recent Form

The Rajasthan Royals got back to winning ways last time out with a thrilling 3-run victory over the Super Giants, bouncing back from a disappointing defeat to the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

On a pitch that offered a bit to both the batting and bowling units, Shimron Hetmyer hit a thrilling 59 runs from 36 balls to help the Royals post 165/8. The victory was a much closer-run thing than it should have been – the Super Giants were 126/8 at one point, but Marcus Stoinis (38 runs from 17 balls) was proving a thorn in their side.

The LSG needed 15 runs from the final over, but debutant Kuldeep Sen held his nerve to seal victory for his side – conceding just 12 from it.

Team News

The Royals are yet to announce a replacement for Nathan Coulter-Nile, who flew back to Australia last week for treatment on a side strain.

Kuldeep Sen impressed on his debut with figures of 1/35 from four overs, including the match-winning death over. He is likely to keep his place.

Player to Watch: Yuzvendra Chahal

The Indian spin-wizard was in inspiring form against the Super Giants – finishing with figures of 4/41 from his four overs.

His haul propelled him to the top of the IPL 22 wicket-taking rankings, and at the time of writing, he boasts the best strike rate of players who have bowled more than two overs.

I fancy him to continue his fine form against the LSG – I will have a bet on the Indian spinner to be top bowler for the Royals. You can back him at 3.60 with Betway. 

RR’s Likely XI

Jos Buttler, Yashasvi, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravi Ashwin, Kuldeep Sen, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvvendra Chahal

Gujarat Titans Recent Form

The Gujarat Titans lost their undefeated record with a disappointing defeat to the Sunrisers Hyderabad – losing by eight wickets with five balls to spare.

In truth, the Titans were always behind the eight ball against the Sunrisers – labouring to 162 on a good batting track, before failing to make any meaningful in-roads or apply any real pressure in the field.

I should be typing about their second consecutive defeat, but the magic of Tewatia means I’m not. I am still processing their incredible run chase against the Punjab Kings last week, which saw Tewatia hit two sixes off the final two balls to seal victory.

Whatever the outcome of this result or even their IPL campaign, the Titans are proving exciting recruits to the competition.

Team News

West Indies recruits Dominic Drakes and Alzarri Joseph have completed their mandatory quarantine period and will be available for selection – though it remains to be seen whether they can displace rising stars Sai Sudharsan and Darshan Nalkande.

There were no fresh injury concerns following the game against the Sunrisers on Monday.

Player to Watch: Sai Sudharsan

Followers of the Tamil Nadu Premier League will not be surprised to see Sudharsan making a name for himself with the Titans. In 2021, he was the tournament’s second-highest run-scorer – averaging a whopping 71.60!

He is taking to the IPL like a duck to water – smashing 35 on debut against the PBKS, though he only managed 11 against the Sunrisers.

I have seen enough to get involved with Sudharsan as top run scorer for the Titans against the Royals – I have bet on him at 5.0 with Betway. 

GT’s Likely XI

Matthew Wade, Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Abhinav Manohar, Rashid Khan, Varun Aaron, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami

Venue & conditions

The Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai hosts its ninth game of the campaign. So far, it is proving to be a batsman’s paradise. The average first innings score at the ground is 172 runs.

What is more, five of the eight games at the stadium have been won by the team batting second.
