GT in IPL 2024: Team preview, full squad, predicted XI and impact players for Gujarat Titans

Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans match preview

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals have had a great start to the IPL 2024, winning four out of four games. They have eight points to their credit with a net run-rate of 1.120. Most recently, they defeated Royal Challengers Bengaluru by six wickets at this same venue. 

Bowling first, Yuzvendra Chahal snared 2 for 34 while Ravichandran Ashwin conceded 28 in four overs. Chasing 184, RR lost Yashasvi Jaiswal on the second ball of the innings but then Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson put on a 148-run partnership. Samson made 69 off 42 while Jos Buttler hammered an unbeaten century in 58 balls as they won the game with five balls to spare. 

RR possible XI: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c/wk), Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Nandre Burger 

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans seem to be struggling in this season in multiple aspects. They have played five games so far and have lost three of those while winning two. GT have four points and a net run-rate of -0.797. They are coming off a 33-run defeat against Lucknow Super Giants in the last game on Sunday. 

Bowling first, Umesh Yadav took two early wickets while Darshan Nalkande struck twice later to restrict the opponents to 163. Sai Sudharsan and Shubman Gill got them off to a good start with 54 runs inside the powerplay. Gill could only manage 19 off 21 and after his dismissal, GT suffered a massive collapse as they eventually got bowled out for 130. 

GT possible XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill (c), Sai Sudharsan, David Miller, Vijay Shankar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Umesh Yadav, Spencer Johnson, Noor Ahmad, Mohit Sharma

Pitch and expected weather conditions

Sawai Mansingh Stadium had served bowling friendly pitches in the previous IPL season, with the average first innings score of just 142. However, the pitches have been much better for batting this year. Three games have been hosted here so far, with the first innings scores reading 193, 185 and 183. 

The forecast suggests Jaipur could witness partly cloudy and warm weather on Wednesday evening. The rain is unlikely to make an appearance while the temperature should range between 26-30 degree Celsius.

Our RR vs GT Dream11 prediction for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson 
  • Batter(s): Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sai Sudharsan 
  • All-rounder(s): Riyan Parag 
  • Bowler(s): Trent Boult, Rashid Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Nandre Burger, Spencer Johnson 
  • Recommended captain: Sanju Samson 
  • Recommended vice-captain: Shubman Gill 

Here in this RR vs GT match prediction, we will discuss why we picked the above XI for the Dream11 contest. While the pitches have been pretty good, the Titans have a weaker batting unit and the Royals have a strong bowling unit. As a result, we have leaned towards RR for this XI. 

Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson are coming off quality knocks and must be picked. Among batters, we have Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sai Sudharsan, all three of whom are prolific run-scorers. Jaiswal has had a poor start but leaving him out could be costly. Riyan Parag has come of age in this season and is a must pick. 

There are several quality options in the bowling unit and we have gone with five of those. Trent Boult, Nandre Burger and Yuzvendra Chahal have been very good for RR. Rashid Khan and Spencer Johnson haven't yet performed to their potential but can be backed. 

For C & VC, there are multiple options but we have gone with Samson and Gill. Samson has two fifties in the tournament and is not susceptible to Rashid Khan. Gill smashed 89 not-out versus Punjab Kings and should be backed. 

Match prediction: Rajasthan Royals to win

The head to head record between these two teams is in favour of Gujarat Titans, who have won four encounters as opposed to just one by Rajasthan Royals. Looking at the ongoing season, RR just have a stronger side on paper. They have a destructive batting unit and will be delighted with Jos Buttler's return to form. RR also have a potent bowling unit with a pace trio of Trent Boult, Nandre Burger and Avesh Khan, and a quality spin attack of Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravi Ashwin. GT, on the other hand, are reliant on Shubman Gill. Our match prediction is for Rajasthan Royals to win. 

Toss prediction: Gujarat Titans to win the toss and field first

Sawai Mansingh Stadium has been a host to 22 matches in the IPL since 2018, with the team batting second winning 12 of those. Given this record and the general bias in T20 cricket for chasing, the teams could be tempted to field first this game. Our toss prediction is that Gujarat Titans will win the toss and opt to field first. 

Man of the match prediction: Sanju Samson 

The Rajasthan Royals captain has been in good form in the ongoing IPL 2024. Sanju Samson has scored 178 runs in four innings so far at a strike rate of 150. He smashed an unbeaten 82 off 52 in the opening game against Lucknow Super Giants and made 69 off 42 in the last game versus Royal Challengers Bengaluru. Samson has a decent record against Rashid Khan and can be backed to come good here.

Betting Odds

  • Rajasthan Royals: 1.70 (PARIMATCH)
  • Gujarat Titans: 2.16 (PARIMATCH)

The bookmakers have Rajasthan Royals as strong favourites to win this game. RR will walk into this game with odds of 1.70 whereas GT have higher odds of 2.16.
