As the Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans, the IPL 2022 finalists, prepare to square off against one another in IPL 2023, anticipation levels are at an all-time high.
On May 5, the game is slated to take place at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur, where RR will be aiming to perform well in front of their home crowd.
Although RR’s IPL 2023 season got off to a promising start, they have recently struggled, winning just one of their last four games. They lost by six wickets against the Mumbai Indians in their most recent game, dropping them to fourth place on the standings after winning five of their first nine games.
However, GT had won three straight games before suffering a razor-thin five-run defeat to the Capitals in their previous meeting. Despite this, they are still in first place with 12 points after winning six of their nine games.
When they last faced off in IPL 2023, RR prevailed by three wickets in a fiercely contested contest. It would be intriguing to watch which squad prevails this time around as the two teams square off.
With the Rajasthan Royals (RR) taking on the Gujarat Titans (GT) in the IPL 2023, here are the top three captain picks for your fantasy team.
Yashasvi Jaiswal (RR)
For the Rajasthan Royals this IPL season, Yashasvi Jaiswal has been in brilliant form, scoring 428 runs in nine games, including a century and three half-centuries.
He is competing for the coveted IPL Orange Cap and is now the second-highest run-scorer of the season. Jaiswal is a strong contender to lead your fantasy team because of his capacity for big scores and outstanding top-order starts.
Hardik Pandya (GT)
Hardik Pandya is a key all-rounder for the Gujarat Titans, and because of his top form, he is a fantastic captain for your fantasy team.
He has 213 runs and over ten wickets in nine games while bowling at a medium pace. Pandya’s strong batting style and talent for taking wickets make him a great addition to your fantasy team.
Rashid Khan (GT)
World-class spinner Rashid Khan has been key to the Gujarat Titans’ success in this IPL season. He is among the top wicket-takers this season with 15 wickets in nine games at an average of 20.53, an economy of 8.55, and a strike rate of 14.40.
