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 (GT) climbed to the top of the table in the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 after defeating the Rajasthan Royals (RR) by 37 runs on Thursday at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
Hardik Pandya excelled in all three departments as the Gujarat Titans skipper steered the team to the top of the table with a 37-run victory.
Gujarat suffered their first loss of the season in the previous game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad by a close margin. The Hardik Pandya-led side has won three of their four games so far and they will need a lot more from their top order which did not click in the previous game.
The last two games at the ground have shown the pitch is a belter to bat on and it will be important for the batting side to not lose wickets as they can capitalise in the end with the surface not holding up. Dew hasn’t been a big factor of late, but the captain that wins the toss will stick to bowling first, plans to assess the conditions well and ease up the run chase.
Hardik remained unbeaten on 87 after the GT skipper creamed a four and six each as GT posted 192-4 in the first innings.
Brief Scores: Gujarat Titans 192-4 (Hardik Pandya 87*, Abhinav Manohar 43; Yuzvendra Chahal 1-32) beat Rajasthan Royals 155-9 (Jos Buttler 54, Shimron Hetmyer 29; Lockie Ferguson 3-23) by 37 runs.
