Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans (RR vs GT) Players List: A battle royale is on the cards when Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans take on the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals, two line-ups armed with potent bowling units in a top-of-the-table IPL showdown on Thursday.
The Royals put together one of the best if not the best bowling attacks for this season and all their spinners and pacers have been right on the mark.
However, the big news coming in is that the seasoned Trent Boult, who has continued to reign fire with the new ball, will not play tonight.
Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans will take place on April 14, 2022, at 7:30 PM IST at the DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. RR vs GT match will be broadcast on Star Sports 1 Hindi, Hotstar.
Matthew Hayden brings the pitch report and says, “This isn’t a new wicket, it’s been used once before. Aas far as dimensions are concerned — one side is 73m, the other is 70m. So it’s not a huge ground as well and the pitch is a beauty. In general it’s a smack-bang. A fairly strong bit of grass and it’s very hard with a bit of sheen to it. 120 sixes have been hit on this ground in just 8 matches and 46 percent of those have been downtown. Expect a lot of runs tonight.”
The temperature is expected to hover around 33-34°C on the matchday with 50-53% humidity and 16-18 km/hr wind speed. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.
