IPL 2022 Final, GT vs RR Highlights: Debutants Gujarat Titans were crowned the Indian Premier League (IPL) champions on Sunday after they beat Rajasthan Royals by seven wickets in the final in Ahmedabad. Opting to bat first, Rajasthan never got going and posted a below-par 130-9 with Jos Buttler, this IPL’s leading scorer, topscoring for them with a rather subdued 39. Gujarat captain Hardik Pandya (3-17) led by example with the ball. Pandya shone with the bat too, scoring 34 and forging a 63-run stand with Shubman Gill to help Gujarat overcome a slow start to their chase. Opener Gill remained unbeaten on 45, sealing Gujarat’s victory with a six and with 11 balls to spare.

Sangakkara on Ashwin

Ashwin is a legend but he has a lot of thinking to do, in terms of his off-breaks and using them more

Sangakkara reflects on loss

We have the Purple Cap, we have the Orange Cap. As a team we played great. A lot of improvement still needs to be done. Riyan Parag has huge batting potential. We will work him to make him an early middle-order batsman next year. Wickets in the middle-overs, we let Gujarat Titans come back into the game.

Hardik Pandya PC notes

My long-term and short-term goal is to win the World Cup for India. I always play for the team. Playing for India is the biggest honour. I want to win the World Cup for India: Hardik Pandya

We always planned to pack our team with five specialist bowlers. People talk about T20 being the batsman's game. But in the end, you have to take wickets to win matches. It's those 10 runs that matter: Hardik

This win as a captain is special: Hardik

I have a great family to look after me in crunch situations: Hardik

Shami up for a chat

He says they wanted a good start (the first ball dismissal of KL Rahul in the team's first game) and that just set up a template for a team. He wanted to serve on a good length and line and keep it simple. Adds that Saha has the abilities, he just needs opportunities. Saha joins him and says it was his fifth final but second on the winning side. Everyone said it is not a good squad but they have shown what they are capable of.

A Brief of the finale

It was quite a one-sided finals in the end! Gujarat probably wanted it a lot more than Rajasthan as the latter were just not as their best. They were well below par with the bat, despite being around 60 for 1 in the 8th over, they ended up with only 130. Yes, the likes of Pandya and Rashid bowled brilliantly but the batting and the shot selection was also not of the highest quality. In the second half, Rajasthan needed early wickets, they did have a chance in the very first itself but they dropped Gill. They did manage to get a couple but that drop of Gill cost them dearly. A couple of partnerships is all that Gujarat needed and they got that. First it was Gill and Pandya and then Miller along with Gill. Gill was the mainstay in this innings and the rest played around him.

00:16 (IST)30 May 2022

The new team, the new entrant manages to lift the trophy in the first year itself. Outstanding display from them. Just brilliant. They were the best team in the tournament and they have shown why! For the third time they have managed to beat Rajasthan in this edition and this win is probably the most convincing and the sweetest.

Helmet toss is the new mic drop 🧑🏽‍🚀🌏💫👹

Forget the mic-drop moment, Shubman Gill has come up with a new emphatic gesture to signal the conclusion of a stunning performance. Minutes after he had sealed the final with a six and let-out a Tarzan-like victory cry, he was mobbed by his ecstatic team-mates. Almost crushed by the euphoria around him, he took off his helmet and tossed it away. It was a statement that the game was over, the match mask needed to be ripped off and it was time for celebrations. In the company of his mates, in the warm embrace of the support staff, Gill didn't need protection.

RR vs GT Live: All in a day's work 🌖🌝🌚🌒

Prasidh Krishna bowled a peach to blast the stumps of Wridhimann Saha—a late -swerving in-swinger that rolled back memories of Javagal Srinath, similarly tall and reedy at the start of his career. The next over, he bowled a horrendous wide when he decided to go from around the stumps to Matthew Wade. The Australian then thwacked him for a six. It was one of those days all-in-a-day’s work night when he veered between the extremes. Either he was silly, or sublime. He then served one up full that begged Hardik Pandya to be pasted through covers. Two balls later, he hurried Gill into a cut that was not there, but the edge flew past Samson. Krishna, after three overs where he hardly emoted, threw his arms in frustration. It was a night which could have gone better for him;  a night that could have gone worse too.

IPL 2022 Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans Live Cricket Score: Making Rajasthan Royals cool again

It may not have been the year in which the Indian Premier League title finally landed in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s cupboard, despite the call of ee saala cup namde going viral. But Rajasthan Royals, forever the butt of jokes about flattering briefly and deceiving unfailingly, have had a season that has naturally drawn comparisons with their title run in the inaugural IPL in 2008.

Naturally, because there hasn’t been anything to compare in the years between 2008 and 2022. There was the briefest of sparks when they actually won the Eliminator in IPL 2013, only to go out in the Qualifier 2 to Mumbai Indians. The norm instead has been of RR having a neat little run of wins, usually early in the season, before predictably running out of steam at the business end. On a couple of occasions, they dragged themselves into the top-four, but were instantly chucked out in the Eliminator. Alternating between massive bets on stars that more often than not don’t come good, and ‘investing’ – an RR favourite buzzword – in unknown local talent, the franchise has done little more than make up the numbers for an overwhelming majority of its existence.
