Rajasthan Royals is seen entering the field with a new thinking in IPL 2022. Under which 6 batsmen and 5 bowlers are seen playing in the team. The balance of this team cannot be called ideal in terms of T20 format. Because due to this, neither the option of additional batsman is left with the Rajasthan Royals nor the bowling option is left with the team. If a team is going with only 5 bowlers in the T20 format, then if a bowler has a bad day, then the whole team may have to bear the brunt of it.
Because there is no option to complete that bowlers quota of overs. Along with this, due to the absence of an all-rounder in the team, the batting also starts looking small. Due to which the upper order batsmen feel extra pressure on themselves. An example of this can be seen in Rajasthans match against Lucknow. When the top order batsmen of the team failed, a big score seemed impossible. In such a situation, the charismatic innings of Shimron Hetmyer kept the Royals in the match, but such fairies are impossible to come in every match.
Gujarat Titans can give competition to all the teams of the tournament in terms of bowling. But the batting of this team does not seem to be showing much confidence. Barring opener Shubman Gill and skipper Hardik Pandya, none of the batsmen have managed to impress so far. Although David Miller has scored 30/35 in 2 matches. But this is not going to cross the teams fleet. Even against Hyderabad, Gujarat looked in trouble after Shubman Gill wicket fell early.
Hardik Pandya had definitely studded the fifty while batting at No. But during this, his strike rate is a matter of discussion. In the last match against Hyderabad, Hardik batted very slowly after the 13th over. Due to this the teams score was reduced by 10/15 runs. In such a situation, now the batsmen of this team have the challenge to prove themselves in front of the best bowling attack of Rajasthan Royals in RR vs GT match. Because in the last match, Rajasthan Royals made the Lucknow teams long and wide batting line-up kneel.

Hardik Pandya is a right-handed batsman and right-arm medium-fast bowler from Gujarat Titans. He has smashed 141 runs and taken 3 wickets in this tournament so far. He will be among the crucial fantasy picks for this game.
Mohammed Shami is a right-handed batsman and right-arm medium-fast bowler from Gujarat Titans. He has grabbed 6 wickets in this tournament so far and will be an essential pick for this game too.
