It will be a repeat of last year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) final once again as defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) take on runners-up Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL 2023’s match no. 48 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Friday. The two sides met earlier in IPL 2023 as well in Ahmedabad with Sanju Samson’s 32-ball 60 and Shimron Hetmyer’s fifty powering the Royals to a three-wicket win.
Hardik Pandya’s side will be eyeing revenge over the Royals for the defeat last month. GT are currently on top of the points table with 12 points but were stunned by last-placed Delhi Capitals in their last match at home.
Rajasthan Royals and three other teams have 10 points currently and Samson will look to join GT at the top of the table with a win in Jaipur. Both sides don’t have any injury concerns although GT bowler Josh Little from Ireland will be playing his last match for the champions in IPL 2023 since he will be joining the national squad for the ODI series against Bangladesh.
RR will be concerned by the form of opener Jos Buttler, who was the IPL 2022 Orange Cap winner although his fellow-opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is on top of the run-scoring charts, including his maiden IPL ton in the last match.
