The group stages of the Indian Premier League are done and dusted and it is now down to four teams to fight it out for the right to be called champions. First up we have the Rajasthan Royals taking on Gujrat Titans in the first qualifiers on May 24, 2022 (Tuesday) at 07:30 PM IST. At the start of the campaign, not many gave these franchisees a chance to finish in the top two but such has been their dominance, the teams are now ready to battle for a place in the finals. It is also the first game to be played outside Maharashtra, with the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata hosting the match. With not much idea about how the wicket will behave, the team winning the toss might look to bowl first and see if there is something for the bowlers early on.

Matthew Wade could be left out of the starting eleven by Gujrat Titans with the Australian wicket-keeper struggling for any sort of form. Rahmatullah Gurbaz is an ideal replacement for him in the top order. Hardik Pandya has been the star of the show for Gujrat and the team will once again look up to him for heroics. In the bowling department, spinner Rashid Khan is without a doubt the leader with some impressive displays.
Rajasthan Royals had Jos Butler firing on all cylinders for the majority of the campaign but the Englishman did slow down a bit towards the latter stages. When he does fire though, Rajasthan tend to score big. It also takes the pressure off the likes of Sanju Samson and Shimron Heymyer. Yuzvendra Chahal and Trent Boult are the key wicket-taking options in the team but the other bowlers have also been consistent.
