Predicted Playing XIs:

GT: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Matthew Wade, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Yash Dayal, Alzarri Joseph, Mohammed Shami

RR: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Obed McCoy

Best Fantasy XI:

Jos Buttler ©, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya (vc), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Shimron Hetmyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Shami, Obed McCoy

Battles to Watch Out for:

Jos Buttler vs Mohammed Shami: Jos Buttler is the leading run-scorer of Tata IPL 2022, and he scored a brilliant 89 against GT in the qualifier 1. However, this time around, Gujarat Titans will want their ace bowler, Mohammed Shami, to rise to the occasion and dismiss Buttler in the IPL final.

Shubman Gill vs Trent Boult: Shubman Gill is one of those players who can play till the end of the inning without breaking a sweat. Boult will shoulder the responsibility of removing the GT opener cheaply in the IPL 2022 final.

Predicted Winner:

Gujarat Titans are the favourites to win the game and lift the trophy.
