Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans, GT Playing 11 vs RR (Predicted), IPL 2022, Match 24, RR vs GT. Rajasthan Royals will play against Gujarat Titans in Match 24, Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai, Apr 14, 2022. The match begins at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT).
Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals will come face to face in a potentially explosive IPL 2022 match on Thursday (April 14). These teams will have clear intentions coming into the match too. The Gujarat Titans tasted their first defeat of the IPL 2022 at the hands of SunRisers Hyderabad and they are stuck at 6 points.
In theory, Royal Challengers Bangalore (6 points) can go ahead of them and Punjab Kings (4 points) can catch up with Gujarat Titans if those two teams won their next matches. Gujarat Titans under Hardik Pandya would like to avoid that situation and a win over Rajasthan Royals can give them that cushion back.

Talking about the Gujarat Titans team, there are also no injury concerns on the side and they aren’t expected to make changes. Young Sai Sudarshan scored only 11 runs but is expected to retain his place in the team, which means Vijay Shankar will keep warming the bench.
Abhinav Manohar also played a brutal knock against SRH and hence is also expected to retain his spot. The Hardik Pandya-led side is not likely to make any changes to their combination. They seem to have found their balance and are likely to retain the young players in the playing XI.
Shubman Gill who has played 10 Tests and 3 ODI matches for India, will be eager to leave his mark in IPL 2022, as a good outing in the IPL can open doors for the Indian team as well. He was a regular starter for Kolkata Knight Riders since IPL 2018 and his role with Gujarat Titans will be to provide a good start to the team.
Shubman Gill remains one of the most promising openers in the league. He is the leading run-scorer for his team so far and is placed behind Jos Buttler and Quinton de Kock in the Orange Cap-most runs in IPL 2022 race. He has scored 187 runs in only 4 IPL 2022 games averaging 46.75.
