Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Trent Boult has had the wood over GT’s struggling opener Wriddhiman Saha, dismissing him three times in 24 balls and giving away just 22 runs. In the game that Boult returned, Kuldeep Sen – the right-arm quick – was the sub but bowled just one over for 20 runs. Through the middle overs, Chahal will be key against GT skipper Hardik Pandya, who has been batting at one-drop lately. R Ashwin however, can tie down the left-handed David Miller, who only scores at a measly 112.33 against him.
Probable XI: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Jason Holder, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Trent Boult, Sandeep Sharma
Gujarat Titans (GT)
This could be Joshua Little’s last game this season before joining Ireland for the ODI series against Bangladesh. Denying RR the chance to lay the PowerPlay platform through Buttler should be GT’s top priority, and for that, they have the leading wicket-taker this season Mohammed Shami. Shami is also the man for GT to deal with RR’s finisher Shimron Hetmyer. For Sanju Samson, GT’s go-to bowler has to be Rashid Khan who has conceded runs at just 117.20.
Probable XI: Wriddihman Saha, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Abhinav Manohar, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan, Noor Ahmed, Joshua Little, Mohammed Shami
