Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina – who has scored the most runs in the IPL playoffs and won four TATA IPL trophies while playing for CSK – claimed that Gujarat Titans would be fresh as they’ve had some time to rest while the Royals will be playing their second game in three days.
Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Suresh Raina said, “I think Gujarat Titans will have a slight edge over Rajasthan Royals in the finals because they’ve had a good rest of four-five days and also due to the tempo they’ve been in this season. I believe RR cannot be taken lightly because they are looking in sublime form, and if Jos Buttler fires for one last time in this season, then it will be a huge bonus for the team. So it will be an epic clash. Also, the wicket has been brilliant here in Ahmedabad, and we’ve seen a lot of strokes from the batters.”
