IPL 2023: RR vs GT, Match Prediction and more details

Rajasthan ended up on the winning side in the previous encounter between the two teams. Here is a preview of the RR vs GT clash.

Rajasthan who won the previous encounter between the two teams have been on a poor run since that game. After defeating the defending champions, Gujarat Titans at their home in the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Rajasthan Royals has only won one game out of the four they have played. Here is all you need to know before the RR vs GT clash.

Rajasthan Royals find themselves fighting for the playoff spots as they have 10 points in 9 games. The Sanju Samson-led team will be delighted with how their batters have performed in the last few games. The batters will come into this clash on the back of two consecutive 200-plus scores. In their previous game against the Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan scored 212 thanks to one of the best batting performances seen in the Indian Premier League by Yashasvi Jaiswal. The young opener scored 124 runs in just 62 balls. His century went in vain as the RR bowlers failed to defend the score. Their lead spinner, previous season’s Purple Cap winner, Yuzvendra Chahal has just picked up one wicket in the last three games. They will want more from the Indian leg-spinner.

Gujarat Titans are positioned well at the IPL points table having 12 points in 9 games. Just like their opponent, GT too will come into this game on the back of a loss. Hadrik Pandya-led side’s three-match winning streak came to an end when they lost to Delhi Capitals in their previous game. It was a rare failure from GT’s batting unit in the previous as they failed to chase the target of just 130 runs.
