GT vs RR: Match Preview
Both the teams faced each other twice in this IPL and Gujarat won both the times. In this sense, Gujarat can be said to have the upper hand. In addition, the GT also has a crowd advantage. The match is in Ahmedabad and around 1.5 lakh spectators can be seen cheering Hardik Pandya's team.
Gujarat made it to the final after defeating Rajasthan in Qualifier 1. On the other hand, Rajasthan defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in Qualifier 2 to enter the finals. Power hitter batsmen and excellent bowlers are present in both teams. Therefore, even if the previous record is in favor of Gujarat, this time there can be tough competition.
José the Boss can change the match alone. Gujarat's team has been one of the best bowling teams this season. However, if Rajasthan opener Jos Buttler's bat comes out, he can remove the wind of this bowling attack. Apart from Butler, Captain Sanju Samson has also been seen in a great rhythm. Let's see which team wins the title.
