Yash Dayal was left out in the last game as he was replaced by Mohit Sharma, who in turn bagged the Player of the Match award against the Kings. Vijay Shankar wasn’t named in the initial XI and was probably set to feature as an Impact Player but the Titans didn’t need him in the last game. Rashid Khan and Mohit Sharma, between them, have dismissed Jos Buttler five times in the IPL and the Titans could look at using them in the powerplay.

Probable XI: Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Shubman Gill, Sai Sudharsan, Hardik Pandya (c), David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Alzarri Joseph, Mohammed Shami, Joshua Little

Trent Boult missed the match against Super Kings due to a niggle but will be coming back for this game. He is likely to replace Adam Zampa, possibly coming in as an impact player in place of Jos Buttler while Devdutt Padikkal might get the nod over Riyan Parag again. Yuzvendra Chahal is a favorable match-up for the Royals against Pandya and David Miller – the legspinner has dismissed the GT captain two times while he has accounted for the South African left-hander’s wicket three times. 

Probable XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jason Holder, Kuldeep Sen, Sandeep Sharma, Yuzvendra Chahal
