Indian T20 League 2022 Playoffs: Gujarat vs Rajasthan Match-Ups

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan May 23, 2022

Gujarat and Rajasthan will vie for a berth in the Indian T20 League 2022 final at Eden Gardens on Tuesday. In the only meeting between both franchises this season, Gujarat grabbed a 37-run win thanks to Hardik Pandya's 87* and three wickets from Lockie Ferguson and Yash Dayal. 

We analyze four exciting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Gujarat-Rajasthan match. 



Hardik Pandya struck his fourth half-century and went past 400 runs this season in the defeat against Bangalore. Given his all-round capabilities, Hardik has the edge over Orange Cap holder Jos Buttler in this Match-Up. Also, the Englishman, who has scored a 24-ball 54 against Gujarat at DY Patil Stadium, has made just 63 runs in his five last innings.  

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

H Pandya - 54.15; J Buttler - 67.21



After scoring just 19 runs in his last two innings, Shubman Gill will be keen to register a big score in the Qualifier 1. The 22-year-old, who returns to a familiar venue, is second in Gujarat's batting charts with 403 runs. Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal, likely to win this Match-Up, clinched 2/26 in the victory over Chennai on Friday.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

S Gill - 43.14; Y Chahal - 52.78



In a Match-Up of pace bowlers, Mohammed Shami meets Trent Boult. Shami went wicketless in the defeat against Bangalore, conceding 23 runs off his two overs. On the other hand, Boult dismissed Ruturaj Gaikwad in the powerplay in Rajasthan's latest fixture. The Kiwi fast bowler could finish above Shami in the fantasy points chart on Tuesday. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

M Shami - 37.28; T Boult - 32.92



Rajasthan skipper Sanju Samson hasn't been consistent this season. The wicket-keeper batter scored just 15 runs against Chennai. On the other hand, Ravichandran Ashwin's heroics with the bat saw Rajasthan seal a second-place finish. He smashed an unbeaten 40 off 23 balls. However, Samson could finish above Ashwin in the fantasy points chart on Tuesday.

S Samson - 47.64; R Ashwin - 41.85
