RR vs GT match preview

Rajasthan Royals

In what started as an electrifying season for the Rajasthan Royals has seemed to have a few speed bumps on the way. With just 2 wins in the last 5 games, there seem to be a few cracks appearing in a team which looked invincible at one point. The form of Jos Buttler has been a huge question but Yashasvi Jaiswal has been simply mind-blowing. With a hundred in the last game, RR will hope he can also continue his form in this match. The bowling has blown hot and cold, with Ashwin emerging as a mainstay in the line up. The form of Yuzi Chahal will be a concern too, and will want him to bounce back as soon as possible.

RR possible 11: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson(w/c), Devdutt Padikkal, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jason Holder, Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal

Gujarat Titans 

One of the, if not the most reliable team in the IPL so far, the Gujarat Titans would have not expected to lose the last game in the manner they did. They will want to put that loss behind them and get back on winning ways as soon as possible. Being of the best travelling teams will also help as they will want to strike off this venue off their list too. The number 3 spot is something that the Titans have not been able to figure out. The injuries and niggles do not help in this scenario but that looks the only weak spot in this Titans side.


GT possible 11:  Wriddhiman Saha(w), Shubman Gill, Abhinav Manohar, Hardik Pandya(c), Vijay Shankar, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmad, Mohammed Shami, Mohit Sharma

Pitch and expected weather conditions

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium is one of the few pitches where batting first is something that the teams winning the toss prefer to do. With the pitch getting slower as the innings progresses, batting first is a really good option. 

It will be hot and humid but will get cooler as the match progresses. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 37°C – 24°C range.

RR vs GT Dream11 prediction

Our RR vs GT Dream11 prediction for this match:

  • Wicket-keeper(s): Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson
  • Batter(s): Shimron Hetmyer. Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubhman Gill
  • All-rounder(s): Ravi Ashwin, Hardik Pandya
  • Bowler(s): Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammad Shami, Rashid Khan
  • Recommended captain: Jos Buttler
  • Recommended vice-captain: Hardik Pandya

The Sawai Mansingh Stadium traditionally has been a slow pitch, with help for the spinners throughout the game. The pitch will get slower as the match progresses, preferring the bowling team in the second innings. 

Rajasthan Royals have the perfect squad to compete for such a pitch, with top quality seam bowlers and the best spinners in India. All batsmen selected are in top form and will look to score big runs on a tough wicket. However, the bowlers too will have a huge role to play, especially in the first innings where the pitch will offer have some help to the bowlers

When it comes to Dream 11 picks, we would recommend having Jos Buttler as your Captain. Not only he is in really good form, but will want to lead from the front and get Rajasthan Royals a win in their home stadium. We would also recommend Hardik Pandya as your Vice-captain for this RR vs GT Dream 11 prediction, given his ability with the bat and his ability to pick up wickets in the middle overs and put brakes on the opposition scoring.
