Ind T20 League 2022
Match 24- RAJ vs. GUJ
What a cracking game lined up as two top teams of this year’s Indian T20 League are all set to clash against one another. Gujarat lost their last match against Hyderabad but the team has enough potential to turn things around and come back into the winning side. Rajasthan, on the other hand, are demolishing any opponent that comes their way. Be it with the bowl in their hand or bat, both the teams have shown their strengths and the neutral fans will have a great time when these two neighbours fight it out at DY Patil Sports Academy.
It was a cheeky win for Rajasthan when they hosted Lucknow in the last match. The top order didn’t work but the partnership between Hetmyer and Ashwin proved to be critical and Rajasthan put up a decent score. Their bowling however was stupendous. Trent Boult took control of the match from the very first ball and Yuzvendra Chahal literally destroyed Lucknow with 4 wickets to his name. It was a very welcoming decision to drop Yashasvi Jaiswal and play Rassie Van Der Dussen. The South African can build the innings and he is the only player in the squad who can play the role of an anchor. He didn’t have a good start but the boy has some potential.
There’s absolutely no weakness in their bowling. Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzi Chahal make a great bowling line-up and in the last match, Kuldeep Sen has also shown that he belongs in the big league. Thus, the team looks really good at the moment and the team will bring the attack to Gujarat when they face their neighbour.
Gujarat despite losing the last match against Hyderabad, the team has the quality to bounce back. Shubman Gill and Hardik Pandya are in sublime form but others need to chip in as well. Wade has been pathetic so far and the team management needs to drop him and replace him with Wriddhiman Saha or Gurbaz. Young Sai Sudharsan has the potential and the management needs to back him to bring out the best from him. Coming to bowlers, their pace express is nothing short of absolute fire. Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson and Hardik Pandya are clicking over 140 kmph and you can’t praise Rashid Khan enough. The team will fight till the end and that’s a huge positive. Hardik Pandya instilled the confidence that was very much needed for these young cricketers and their first season can be their breakthrough season if they can keep up with the momentum.
