Rajasthan Royals

The only unbeaten side in the competition, Rajasthan Royals have everything good at this moment. Sandeep Sharma missed the last two games. He could be available for selection after the Titans game. The Royals brought Shubham Dubey as an Impact Player in place for Yuzvendra Chahal in their last two matches and they could go down the same route. Navdeep Saini is back from the NCA.

The left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal has had a forgettable start to IPL 2024. He has scored 24, 5, 10, and 0 in the four matches RR have played and will have to improve a lot as Jos Buttler has already made a comeback, scoring a match-winning century against RCB. Sanju Samson is having a great season both as a captain and a batter while Riyan Parag has already played three important match-winning knocks 

Shimron Hetmyer hasn't got so many opportunities but he is a good finisher and will be desperate to help his side by scoring runs. Trent Boult and Nandre Burger will continue as the leading bowlers with Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal bowling the key middle overs. Avesh Khan hasn't performed well this season and he is the weak link in RR's bowling setup. But, still, the Royals are looking like the favourites ahead of the game against GT. 

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans are seventh on the points table with 2 victories and 3 losses and are now up against the table toppers, Gujarat Titans. Another defeat would leave them hanging at the bottom but a victory away from home will help them climb into the mid-table. It's been a difficult start to the season for Rashid Khan, with five wickets in five games at an economy of 8.65. But, he does have a brilliant record against the Royals. 

David Miller is not fit for the Royals clash but is close to full-match fitness. There is no clarity over Wriddhiman Saha's availability either. He missed the previous game with a back injury. Vijay Shankar is out of form so they might replace him with Shahrukh Khan or Abhinav Manohar in the middle order. They could also think about Matthew Wade in place of Kane Williamson. Williamson has also struggled in the last two games.

Sai Sudharsan has also scored runs consistently for Gujarat but he will have to improve his strike rate. Mohit Sharma has consistently performed for Gujarat and he has been the best bowler for them too. Noor Ahmed, Spencer Johnson, and Umesh Yadav are also expected to feature in the playing XI.
