Gujarat Titans are the table toppers in this season.
Gujarat Titans and Royal Challengers Bangalore will play the 43rd match of IPL 2022 on Saturday. Gujarat Titans have had a sensational run and are at the top of the table, Gujarat Titans have plenty of breathing space but the crucial aspect for their campaign will be to sustain the momentum and seal a top-two finish. On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore have had a shocker as a batting unit in the last two matches – 68 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and 115 against Rajasthan Royals – and will fall behind if they don’t start stringing wins. The onus is on the batters to lift the campaign and ensure it isn’t too late.
