Gujarat Titans will play against Rajasthan Royals in the 24th match of IPL 2022.
Rajasthan Royals have played four games this season so far where they managed to win three games and are currently standing at the top position on the points table of IPL 2022.
While Gujarat Titans are placed at the number 4 spot with 3 wins and one defeat in four games.

Shimron Hetmyer scored an impressive knock of 59 runs while Yuzvendra Chahal picked up an excellent 4-wicket haul for Rajasthan Royals.
The Titans have given Matthew Wade a long run so far but he has not performed.
This could prompt them to select Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the explosive batter from Afghanistan.

R Ashwin and Prasidh Krishna had a bad day at office in the last match and need to bounce back.
