GT vs RR Head to Head
Gujarat Titans are a new team and this is their first ever IPL season. Thus, they have only played 1 match against Rajasthan Royals so far which they won.
GT vs RR: Winning Prediction
Gujarat Titans might have finished as the table toppers in IPL 2022 but they have not had such a great form in the last few, particularly in 5 matches. In their last 5 matches of the League stage, GT managed to win only 2 matches which is a poor record. In fact, they even lost the last match of the league stage which was against RCB.
Rajasthan might have a slight advantage in this area as after a major dip in their form in the middle of the season, RR made a great recovery near the end and their performance was impeccable. We thus predict that RR will avenge their defeat in the league stage tonight and register an emphatic win over Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans.
