Five of the Rajasthan Royals’ nine games so far have resulted in victories. They had a strong start to the season by winning four of the first five games. However, their recent performance wasn’t great as they lost three of the following four games. However, winning the following game would move them to the top of the standings.

On the other side, the Gujarat Titans are the current table-toppers after winning six of their first nine games. After losing to the bottom-of-the-table Delhi Capitals, they enter this game on a losing streak. This season, there is fierce competition between the teams. A modest slump in performance could force the squad to withdraw from the top 4 in the back end of the tournament.
