Possible Top Performers

Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Jos Buttler

The English star batsman Jos Buttler was exceptional in the first 7 games of this season as he managed to score 491 runs including 3 centuries and 2 half-centuries but he struggled in the next 7 games and he was able to score only 138 runs at an average of just 19. 71.

The right-hander is still the orange-cap holder with 629 runs from 14 games and he is expected to score a big knock against Gujrat Titans in the 1st Qualifier.

Probable Best Batsman of the Match: Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal has been the stand-out bowler of this season. The leggie has picked 26 wickets from 14 games to finish the league stage as the leading wicket-taker of the season. Yuzvendra Chahal has performed well in almost every game for RR this season and his wicket-taking ability at crucial stages is the main reason for the success of his side in IPL 2022. Chahal will be the key bowler on the spin-friendly Eden Gardens pitch.

GT Vs RR Who Will Win

Gujrat Titans were exceptional in the first phase of the league stage and no one might have expected this kind of performance from them in their maiden season. Gujrat Titans have also beaten Rajasthan Royals earlier this season which will give them some extra confidence in the match.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have a lot of match-winners in the lineup to win any game for them. Both the orange and purple caps holders of this season belong to Rajasthan Royals and they will be high in confidence after their impressive victory against LSG.

Hence, we predict that RR will beat GT in Qualifier 1 this season.
