IPL Final 2022 GT vs RR Key Players:
The previous match results and H2H stats say GT will highly rely on their captain Hardik Pandya and in-form hard-hitter David Miller. The Rajasthan bowlers have failed to take the duo’s wickets in the last 2 meetings. So, Samson’s guys will be seeking their wickets early to not let them have a go. GT’s other key players will be Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan.
On the other hand, Jos Buttler has been the best player in this entire edition. He has already celebrated 4 centuries this season. RR will certainly depend on the Englishman. If he gets enough support from his teammates, he alone can demolish any side for sure. RR will also hope for their captain Samson to perform. Moreover, RR’s key player list will feature Devdutt Padikkal and Trent Boult.
|Gujarat Titans Key Players||Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan|
|Rajasthan Royals Key Players||Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, Trent Boult|
IPL Final 2022 Prediction (GT vs RR Prediction):
With both sides having firepower in their batting attacks, both captains are expected to choose to bowl first. Gujarat may have the fans behind them but RR will fancy their chances after a comfortable victory over RCB on the very same ground. However, we’re expecting galore of runs in the IPL final 2022. A serious battle is also expected and we also predict the game to be a humdinger. Fans will definitely love it to go to the wire. Well, our prediction for the fixture is a Gujarat Titans victory. Rashid Khan might prove himself as the difference between the 2 sides.
