IPL Final 2022: Rajasthan's 'Royal' challenge in front of 'Titans' of Gujarat

Ahmedabad. A lot is at stake in this match for Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals, on the verge of breaking the last spell for the IPL title. Rajasthan Royals, who made a golden start in the first journey of the IPL fifteen years ago, would like to repeat history once again, then the success of Gujarat Titans, who became head on their very first journey by defeating the giants, will be in the process of creating a new history. When the current IPL season started two months ago, hardly anyone would have thought that Sanju Samson and Hardik Pandya would take the field for the final toss.

Hardik and head coach Ashish Nehra, who have seen many ups and downs in their career, this two-month journey has been like a dream. From cricket pundits to critics who considered this team out of the race without even testing it after the auction, he has responded with his performance. Called 'one match wonder', this team of players like Rahul Tewatia and David Miller, who have not been consistently performing well, did not seem that strong on paper. But then cricket is a game of uncertainties in which fortunes are made and deteriorated on the field itself. Hardik, who returned to form after getting fit, has proved his mettle as a captain. He has also shone in batting without taking the pressure of captaincy. On the other hand, Miller, who has been yearning to find his rhythm for five years, has surprised everyone.

Tewatia proved that five sixes in Sharjah were not just a fluke. While Rashid Khan has added several new arrows to his quiver, Wriddhiman Saha has ensured to play at least one more season with his performance. Gujarat has never been famous for its passion for cricket. Players like Parthiv Patel and Jasprit Bumrah have emerged from this state, but the way the cricket craze started speaking in Tamil Nadu after the success of Chennai Super Kings, it is now in Gujarat. Gujarat also got the advantage of playing in front of their home spectators at the packed Motera Stadium. On the other hand, if Rajasthan would like to win the title for such a star, then somewhere from the sky, this team must be looking at it. Shane Warne, who won the first IPL title to a young team without stars, must have been proud of the performance of the Rajasthan Royals. Talking about talent, there is not much difference between Sanju and Hardik. Sanju is one of those rare players who has not played even 20 matches for India but his popularity is amazing. With success in the captaincy, his talent has grown further. They have stalwarts like Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jos Buttler, Trent Boult, and young players like Yashasvi Jaiswal and famous Krishna but Sanju has taken the team this far by keeping a good rapport with everyone. Heroes will also emerge from this match, hearts will also be broken and records will also be made but this match will be such that cricket lovers will remember it for years.

Teams: Gujarat Titans: Hardik Pandya (Captain), Abhinav Manohar, David Miller, Gurkeerat Singh, B Sai Sudarshan, Shubman Gill, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Matthew Wade, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Wriddhiman Saha, Alzarri Joseph, Darshan Nalkande, Lockie Ferguson, Mohammed Shami, Noor Ahmed, Pradeep Sangwan, Rashid Khan, Ravi Srinivasan, Sai Kishore, Varun Aaron, and Yash Dayal.

Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson (Captain), Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Shimron Hetmyer, Devdutt Padikkal, Pranam Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Riyan Parag, KC Cariappa, Navdeep Saini, Obed McCoy, Anunay Singh, Kuldeep Sen, Karun Nair, Dhruv Jurel, Tejas Baroka, Kuldeep Yadav, Shubham Garhwal, James Neesham, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Resie van der Dusen, Daryl Mitchell, and Corbin Bosch.
