The IPL 2022 league matches have been played. Now the playoffs are about to start. The first qualifier will be played between Gujarat Titans (GT) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) tonight. The match will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at the Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata. Earlier, after the league match, Gujarat Titans (GT) were on points while Rajasthan Royals (RR) remained number two. Other than this, Lucknow Super Joints (LSG) came in at third place and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at number four.
The first qualifier and knockout will be played at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. While the Qualifier-2 and Final match will be played at the Ahmedabad stadium. Meanwhile, ahead of the first qualifier, former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has made a big statement.
Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori said that the Rajasthan Royals (RR) led by Sanju Samson look better than the Gujarat Titans (GT) in the first qualifier. He also said that Rajasthan Royals (RR) have more chances to win in this match. Rajasthan Royals (RR) have 3 great bowlers so this team looks a bit better.
The former Kiwi captain said I like Ravi Ashwin and Chahal’s spin pairing. Both players are bowling brilliantly in the middle. Apart from this, pacemaker Trent Boult is also working in excellent form, so I think Rajasthan Royals (RR) have the upper hand in this match.
However, Vettori said that Gujarat Titans (GT) bowling is also excellent. Gujarat Titans (GT) bowlers have bowled brilliantly throughout the season. But I still feel that Rajasthan Royals (RR) have a bit of an edge. In fact, this season Gujarat Titans (GT) batsmen have batted brilliantly. At the same time, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) bowlers have been a major concern of the opposition batsmen throughout the season. Starter Jos Buttler is running in excellent form for Rajasthan Royals (RR). Aside from this, Yuzvendra Chahal is continuously taking ground. Chahal has so far taken 26 wickets in 14 matches. Along with this, the purple cap is also with Chahal. At the same time, Ravi Ashwin has taken 11 wickets so far with great economy. Whereas so far Trent Boult has taken 13 and the famous Krishna has taken 15 wickets.
