Preview

Gujarat Titans and Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns in what will be the last league game for both teams. While Gujarat have qualified for the playoffs and sit at the top of the table, Bangalore are still hanging by a thread with 14 points. Thus, RCB need to win this game desperately to keep their playoff hopes alive. Meanwhile, Gujarat will look at this game as a practice before the knockouts.

Pitch Report

The Wankhede pitches have been the slowest among all four venues of IPL 2022. Runs have been hard to accumulate due to the sluggishness in the pitches. Even in the last few games, teams batting first have found it tough to bat on the Wankhede pitch. So, the same is expected in Match 67 between RCB and GT.

Team Analysis

Royal Challengers Bangalore:
The Faf du Plessis-led side has thrown away the good start to the tournament after some big losses. And these losses will come to haunt them when the net run rate will be taken into account to decide the top four teams. Nonetheless, that’s a thing to think about later but what must be playing on the minds of RCB right now is a big win over Gujarat.

For that, RCB’s big three (du Plessis, Kohli, Maxwell) will have to do something miraculous. The bowlers will also have to put in some exceptional effort to bring a big win for their team. Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel are in good nick but Mohammed Siraj’s form is a big worry for the captain and the management. In batting, Virat Kohli’s struggles are not doing any good either.

Gujarat Titans:
With the team qualified for the playoffs, Gujarat don’t have to worry too much. However, they will try to work on the weak links in their eleven. Shubman Gill has blown hot and cold and thus will look to play a big knock before the knockouts kick-off. Hardik Pandya too will want to return among runs. In bowling, there are no bigger worries to look at as each bowler has been doing his respective job. Rashid Khan has got good support from Sai Kishore. Meanwhile, in the pace department, Mohammed Shami, Alzarri Joseph, and Yash Dayal are doing the asked job.

Match Prediction

Conclusion

RCB have failed to perform in crunch games while GT have been flawless this season. Thus, the Hardik Pandya-led side is the favorite to win Thursday’s match.
