Gujarat Titans will go as favourites when they take the field against Rajasthan Royals in the Qualifier 1 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Tuesday. The Hardik Pandya-led side finished the season at the top of the table after the league stage.

Rajasthan Royals did their chances no harm of winning the title for the second time after finishing in the top 2 of the table. While Gujarat Titans finished with 20 points from 14 games, RR had to be content with 18 points from the same number of matches.

Gujarat Titans have met Rajasthan Royals only once in IPL 2022 with the former winning by 37 runs, thanks to a brilliant 52-ball 87 from Hardik Pandya. Jos Buttler with 629 runs at a strike rate of 146.96 in 14 matches is the highest run-getter in this IPL.

The Englishman, who has slammed three centuries and three fifties this season, is yet to score a half-century in five innings and the Royals would desperately need him to be back among runs.

Rajasthan Royals have the Purple Cap holder too in their armoury with Yuzvendra Chahal leading the chart with 26 wickets with a best of 5/40 that included a hattrick against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Let’s take a look at the Road to Qualifier 1 for both teams.
