Mohammad Kaif, former Indian cricketer, believes that Hardik Pandya, the captain of Gujarat Titans, is a great leader who focuses on the present and not the past. Despite their loss against KKR, Kaif thinks the team will continue to feed off each other’s positivity. The next match, which will take place in Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium, will be between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals. This game is significant because it is a repeat of the IPL 2022 final in which Gujarat Titans emerged victorious. Rajasthan Royals will be looking to settle the score and add another chapter to their rivalry.
Yusuf Pathan, another former Indian cricketer, is impressed with Rajasthan Royals’ captain, Sanju Samson, and believes he is leading the team well. He said that the team is playing excellent cricket this season, and their batting looks very strong. On the other hand, Gujarat Titans lost their previous home game against KKR but managed to win against Punjab in their last game. The team will be looking to return to their winning ways at home. According to Kaif, when playing to defend the title, momentum is crucial; thus, the team must maintain its positive momentum.
