Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT | 48th Match Preview & Stats

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT | RR vs GT match has been scheduled for 5th May at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur. Gujarat and Rajasthan hold a good position in the league table, so we predict this match will be exciting. The fans and followers are optimistic about their favourite players and supported teams.

However, in the meantime, there are many changes in the team’s core. So, to find the detailed discussions, we will talk about the team preview, predicted players, key players, weather, and pitch reports and finally, the match prediction.

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT Team Preview:

Rajasthan Royals:

Rajasthan ended on the losing side more often in their recent outings. In their last game at the Wankhede, Yashasvi Jaiswal scored a hundred as Rajasthan finished with 212 batting first. To lose by six wickets after that must not be a happy camp, the Royals.

Kuldeep Sen, who came in for Kuldip Yadav, went for 20 runs in one over against MI. Rajasthan Royals need Boult to strike early in the powerplay stage. If he goes for runs earlier, the rivals can get away with a big score. Holder has been very wicketless and expensive in his last 3 outings. He is among the experienced bowlers on this side but has yet to deliver. The likes of Ashwin and Sandeep Sharma also add to the overall experience of the Rajasthan bowling attack.

Gujarat Titans:

Gujarat Titans were big favourites in their last match against Delhi Capitals in Ahmedabad. Shami’s spell in the powerplay got Delhi reeling on 23-5 in 5 Overs. At that point, one would have expected Gujarat Titans to finish for at most 100-110 runs, given the bowling arsenal Gujarat possesses.

However, Pandya went a little defensive regarding the field placement. His batters on the crease got away with a 50-run stand. One of the comfortable batters later took it on and led Delhi to 130, a match-winning score that day.

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT Predicted playing 11:

Rajasthan Royals:

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Dhruv Jurel, Sandeep Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jason Holder, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal

Gujarat Titans:

Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Hardik Pandya (c), Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, Mohit Sharma, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, Joshua Little

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT Key players:

Rajasthan Royals:

Rajasthan Royals have what it takes to be a dominating team. Captain Sanju Samson needs to play a longer inning. Yashasvi Jaiswal showed just how it is done in his last innings. Jaiswal is in great form at the top, while Dhruv Jurel has also demonstrated his big-hitting abilities in the lower order.

Gujarat Titans:

There is no problem with the bowling for Gujarat Titans now, and their key bowlers will deliver against RR. Saha has struggled at the top lately, while Shubman has been consistent. Gujarat has also been impressive in the powerplay while batting, with Hardik finding it simple to score runs even on tricky pitches. So, we expect another good start from Gujarat in this RR vs GT game.

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT Weather & pitch reports:

Jaipur’s Sawai Mansingh Stadium will be the ground for the match. It has been a bowling-friendly pitch though the last match here had some big runs. If it acts as a slow track, it could wear off even more in the 2nd innings, and in that condition, batting 1st would be the right way to go. The weather would be almost sunny, with a temperature of 34 degrees Celsius. However, a match-winning total would be something over 175-180.

Of the 49 domestic T-20s played on this ground, the team batting second has won 32 games. Both sides have a solid batting lineup with worthy match-finishers and will be comfortable batting second. This decision would also depend on the condition of the pitch on the match day.

Tata IPL 2023 RR vs GT Match prediction:

In the RR vs GT match, the two teams are equally matched in their strengths. One of these teams is in a better position with the ball. Rajasthan Royals looks good in the batting department though their skipper has yet to be able to turn his good starts into big hits.

However, if Boult finds his form and with Ashwin and Chahal also delivering, RR would pose a tough challenge to Gujarat. If the pitch is slower, GT will find it easier to chase or even set a good enough total batting first. And for that reason, Rajasthan will start with a slight edge in our match prediction.
