GT vs RR Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 23 | GT vs RR Dream11 Prediction Today | Ahmedabad Pitch Report

In a repeat of the IPL 2022 final, Gujarat Titans (GT) will be up against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the second game on Sunday. Gujarat Titans bounced back strongly in the last match against Punjab Kings. Their bowlers did a fantastic job, with every bowler taking at least one wicket.

Gujarat’s batters also did a decent job, particularly Shubman Gill, who played a fantastic knock. GT would want a similar show against a strong Rajasthan Royals unit.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals will be high on confidence after defeating Chennai Super Kings at Chepauk Stadium. Devdutt Padikkal played a fine knock against CSK after going through a rough patch earlier, which bolsters RR’s batting unit further. With the ball, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal again weaved their magic. Overall, Rajasthan Royals are looking very stable like the last season.

Expect a riveting contest between the last year’s finalists.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Gujarat Titans:

  • Shubman Gill has scored 291 runs at an average of 36.37 and a strike rate of 121.25 against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. His performance at Narendra Modi Stadium has been top-notch across formats. Expect him to again play a good knock at the top.
  • Sai Sudharsan has 156 runs at a 52 average and a strike rate of 126.83 in the IPL this season. He has also amassed two fifties in four innings. Sudharsan has looked quite fluent with the willow.
  • Hardik Pandya has 347 runs at a magnificent batting average of 86.75 and a strike rate of 170.09 against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. He has also snared nine wickets at a bowling strike rate of 13.78 against them. In the Finals of IPL 2022, Hardik Pandya was Man of the Match award for his all-round display against RR.
  • Rashid Khan has ten wickets at an economy rate of 6.02 against Rajasthan Royals in the IPL. He is currently the third-leading wicket-taker with nine wickets at a strike rate of 10.67 this season. Rashid also took a hat-trick against Kolkata Knight Riders earlier in the tournament.
  • Mohammed Shami has taken five wickets at an average of 18 in the powerplay in IPL 2023. There might be some swing available early in the innings, and Shami can exploit that effectively.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • Jos Buttler is the best T20 batter in world cricket at the moment. He has made 182 runs at an average of 60.66 and a strike rate of 158.26 against Gujarat Titans in the IPL. Buttler can counter the high-end pace of GT bowlers easily.
  • Yashasvi Jaiswal is in the form of his life. In the powerplay, the southpaw has accommodated 92 runs at a sensational strike rate of 184 and a balls-per-boundary ratio of 2.63 in IPL 2023. He will look to provide a rapid start again from the top.
  • Sanju Samson has been dismissed for a duck in the last two games. However, he is a quality player and will be eager to bounce back against Gujarat Titans. In the three innings against Gujarat Titans, Samson has 72 runs at a 24 average and a strike rate of 150 in the IPL.
  • Shimron Hetmyer has made 127 runs and struck at 173.97 with the bat in IPL 2023. 47.24% of his runs have come in sixes only this year. He can again provide the finishing touches in the back end of the innings.
  • Trent Boult has five wickets at an average of 17.60 and an economy rate of 7.33 in IPL 2023. Boult can be very threatening in the powerplay, like in the last game, if there is some assistance off the deck early on.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal is the second-leading wicket-taker of the season, with ten wickets at an average of 12.10 under his belt. Chahal has a range of deceiving options in his armour to operate with. He can stifle the GT batters with his high-quality spin bowling.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 3, GT 3, RR 0.
  • Jos Buttler vs Rashid Khan in the IPL: 30 runs, 10 avg, 63.82 SR & 3 dismissals. Rashid Khan clearly has the upper hand against the best batter in T20 cricket – Jos Buttler.
  • Hardik Pandya vs Jason Holder in T20s: 29 runs, 9.66 avg, 120.83 SR & 3 dismissals.
  • Shimron Hetmyer at No. 5 or below in the IPL since 2022: 414 runs, 51.75 avg, 157.41 SR & 4.96 BpB ratio. He is undoubtedly one of the best lower middle-order batters in the competition.
  • Trent Boult needs three more scalps to complete 100 IPL wickets.
