Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Gujarat Titans Match 67 – Players to Watch
Faf du Plessis
His first season with the RCB has been a relatively successful one, but this rating will be signed and sealed if he can lead the team to its first IPL title. But, in order to do that, he must first lead the men in red and black to the playoffs. To do this, firstly, he must inspire his team to victory against the table toppers, Gujarat Titans, and then hope that Mumbai can do them a favor by defeating the Delhi Capitals in their final game of the season. As far as his performances are concerned, Faf has blown hot and cold this season, but in the last few games, he has put in a shift and the team will want him to perform once again.
He has turned out to be the signing of the season for the RCB. The Sri Lankan all-rounder has been an absolute weapon with the ball and is currently in the race to win the purple cap award. He is RCB’s leading wicket-taker this season and might win the purple cap if the team makes the playoffs. He has taken 23 wickets in 13 matches at a strike rate of 11.7 and an average of 14.65.
The Gujarat Titans captain has been very impactful this season and is on the way to leading the national team in the upcoming series against South Africa. However, before he can get to that, he still has an IPL to win. He has led the team from the front and has recovered his form just in time. Hardik has scored 351 runs in 12 matches, with an average of 35.10 and a strike rate of 131.46.
He is GT’s second-highest wicket-taker this season and is anticipated to play a big role in this game given the pitch’s favorable conditions for spinners. Rashid has taken 16 wickets in 13 matches at a strike rate of 19.4 and an average of 22.25. He is a big-game player and thrives under pressure. His team has already qualified for the playoffs, so he can use this match to get stuck in and in the rhythm for the playoffs.
