5 GT vs RR Key battles
1. Mohammed Shami vs Jos Buttler: Shami’s experience and skills will be tested against Buttler, the in-form RR opener, who is also the IPL 2022’s highest run-maker yet. GT will require to get Buttler early in the innings.
2. Shimron Hetmyer vs Rashid Khan: RR have relied on the left-hander Hetmyer for middle/death over acceleration and GT depended on Rashid to apply breaks in this period. This battle between a big-hitter and a crafty bowler will be a treat.
3. R Ashwin vs David Miller: Ashwin’s propensity to get the wicket of left-handed batsmen has now become a legend. Miller has given GT the middle or late over acceleration and Ashwin will hope to add another name to his left-handed victims’ list.
4. Yuzvendra Chahal vs Hardik Pandya: Hardik will look for big hits and he has been his captain, and also a standout batter. Chahal might try out those wide leg-breaks to entice Hardik into a false shot. This will be a riveting battle.
