Rajasthan Royals vs Gujarat Titans, IPL 2024: Predicted Playing XIs Of Both Teams

Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Gujarat Titans (GT) will square off against each other in Match 24 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Wednesday. Rajasthan have been on an unbeaten run since the start of the IPL 2024. After winning four consecutive games, RR are leading the IPL 2024 Standings with eight points. Gujarat on the other hand have had a roller coaster ride this year. Out of five games, GT have only managed to win two and suffered three losses. The IPL 2022 champions find themselves in seventh position on the points table.

RR will aim to make it five wins in a row while GT will be eager to return to winning ways.

Jos Buttler

Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin will be an important member of RR’s spin bowling attack in the upcoming game. His all-round abilities provide the Royals with balance in the lower middle order.

Trent Boult

Kiwi speedster Trent Boult will bowl the opening spell for RR. His swing and pace variations can provide the Royals with early breakthroughs. Boult has taken five wickets in four matches and will be eager to topple the GT top order.

Avesh Khan

Kane Williamson had an underwhelming start to his IPL 2024 campaign. He was dismissed early in the last match where he scored just one run. With the T20 WC 2024 around the corner, the 2018 Orange Cap winner will be eager to display his resilient batting form soon.

BR Sharath (wicketkeeper)

BR Sharath is expected to keep for the Gujarat Titans. Sharath played his first game of the season against Lucknow where he scored only two runs. He will be eager to deliver the goods against RR to cement his place in the playing XI squad.

Vijay Shankar

Vijay Shankar’s potential inclusion in GT’s predicted XI would offer the team a versatile batting option. He has not scored many runs this season but Shankar’s all-round abilities could provide balance to his team’s combinations.

Spencer Johnson

Spencer Johnson will play a pivotal role in GT’s pace battery. He has taken three wickets in three games and will be raring to add more scalps to his tally after a dry run in his previous game.

Noor Ahmad

Noor Ahmad will assist Rashid in leading the Titans’ spin attack. He has taken three wickets in as many games and will be a threat to RR’s batters with his ability to turn the ball both ways.

Mohit Sharma

Mohit Sharma will be an important player for GT in the upcoming fixture. He has taken seven wickets in five games and is a top contender for the Purple Cap in the ongoing season.
