RCB is led by Faf du Plessis whereas GT is led by Hardik Pandya. Let’s have a look at the match Preview, Prediction, and Fantasy XI.
GT vs RCB: Match Preview
Gujarat Titans are at the top of the points table this season of the Tata IPL. They played eight matches in this season of the Tata IPL where they won seven matches. In the last match, GT played against SRH where they won the game by 5 wickets. Wriddhiman Saha scored 68 runs and Rahul Tewatia smacked 40 runs respectively for Gujarat Titans. The new entrant is led by Hardik Pandya.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Royal Challengers Bangalore is at the fifth position on the points table. They won five matches out of nine. RCB played their last game against RR where they lost the game by 29 runs. Faf du Plessis, the skipper of the franchise scored 23 runs for Royal Challengers Bangalore in that game.
GT vs RCB: Match Prediction
GT and RCB have been producing opposite results in the past few games of IPL 2022. Gujarat Titans led by Hardik Pandya have given back to back hits, managing to win 7 out of 8 games. On the other hand, RCB has lost a few matches in the past and their weakness has been exposed. The batting is unbalanced with Kohli’s very poor form and Plessis’s and Maxwell’s inconsistency. GT managed to emerge victorious in the last match against SRH even though it was a very close game. The Hardik Pandya led team has given consistent performance throughout the season and has a very well balanced squad. It is predicted that GT will win tomorrow’s match against RCB.

Hardik Pandya from Gujarat Titans has hammered 305 runs and grabbed 4 wickets in this tournament so far. He is a top pick.
