Players to watch out for:- (IPL Final GT vs RR)
Gujrat Titans (GT):
The South African has had so much impact in this tournament for GT. He is enjoying the role of the finisher and he is given ample opportunities to prove his worth.
In the last few years, he is not given enough opportunities but now he is finishing close games for GT as we saw in the last game. (IPL Final GT vs RR)
He will be the key for GT if they are into these kinds of tense situations again.
Till now, D Miller has scored 449 runs in 15 games with an average of 64.14 and a strike rate of 141.19.
Captain H Pandya has found a new role in the middle order this year. For MI, he played most of the time as a finisher. But this year, he promoted himself up the order and took the responsibility on his own shoulder.
He is leading from the front. He scored 453 runs in the 14 matches with an average of 45.30 and a strike rate of 132.84.
If he does well in the final, the team will feel confident. They need their captain to give a final push in the final.
His utility in the team has been immense. He takes wickets with the ball, does not give away so many runs, and can win you games with the bat in a close encounter. (IPL Final GT vs RR)
R Khan has not picked up so many wickets but hasn’t given so many runs as well. One of the reasons for him not taking wickets is other batters played safe against him.
This year, he is not up to his standard with the ball but still does well.
If Gujrat wants to restrict Buttler and Co. in the final, he can play a vital role in the final.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)-
Coming with lots of runs under his belt, J Buttler will be the most important player in the final for Rajasthan Royals.
J Buttler started the tournament well and at one stage, it was looking like he will break the record of V Kohli’s 973 runs in a single IPL season. But a slight dip in his form makes the task a little tougher.
But now, the Englishmen have found his mojo again. He scored his 4th hundred followed by 89 not out in the qualifier 1.
If J Buttler gives a good start in the final, it will make life a little easier for the other players as he will take RR to a good situation.
Till now, he scored 824 runs in the 16 games and has equaled the record of 4 hundred in a single IPL season. He scored with an average of 58.86 and a strike rate of 151.47.
The leg spinner had an ordinary last few games. But he is a very smart cricketer and he knows how to handle these situations. He has done that before and RR would want him to do that in the final of the IPL 2022.
Y Chahal took 26 wickets in the 16 games. His average is 19.50 and he has one 5-for which came against KKR.
The pacer has made a strong comeback in the last game in the qualifier 2 after getting hit for 3 consecutive sixes by D Miller in the qualifier 1.
He is very good with the new ball and can nip the ball around and trouble the batters. If he does well in the powerplay, RR can restrict the strong middle order of GT in the final.
Dream 11 picks and fantasy tips:-
If you are looking for a good fantasy team, you must include J Buttler and Y Chahal in your team. They have been a seasoned performer and we can expect big performances at the final.
Other than these two, P Krishna, R Ashwin, D Miller, and R Khan are the other players who can win you points in the fantasy 11 games.
Which team has more chances of winning the IPL 2022 Final?
Both the team are looking good and will look to win the title.
GT has a strong middle order. And they have a bowling attack to restrict the team while RR has a formidable bowling attack. They rely on Jos Buttler if we come into their batting lineup.
