The D-day is finally here! After 2 months of gruelling battle, hard work, and sweat, the top two teams of IPL 2022 will play one final time this season for ultimate glory. Rajasthan Royals, who last played a final in the inaugural edition of the IPL in 2008, will look to continue their 100% winning record in the final.
On the other hand, Gujarat Titans, who are playing their first final in their maiden season, will also look to conclude their dream debut with a trophy in hand.
The BLOCKBUSTER game is scheduled to be played in the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad at 8:00 PM IST.
Which team is likely to dominate? Which player will turn out to be the game-changer? Let’s find out:
We saw how RCB batters struggled to strike the ball in the latter part of the innings. The pitch will get slow as the game progresses and so the onus will be on the opening batters to provide a flying start. Both teams would look to bat first in the big final.
Rajasthan suffered a heartbreaking defeat against Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 1. The same opponent will be in front of them on Sunday and the Men in Pink would be aiming for revenge. Prasidh Krishna, who failed to defend 16 runs in the last over, redeemed himself in the Qualifier 2 as he picked up 3 wickets. Jos Buttler was the star for the Royals as his scintillating century made the chase like a walk in the park. These two players will again be key in the final.
Meanwhile, Gujarat Titans would be high on confidence as they will be playing the final in front of their home crowd. The Gujarat side have found different heroes in different games and this makes them a formidable side. David Miller, Hardik Pandya and Rashid Khan will again be in the spotlight.
