The winner of Qualifier 1 will advance to the final.

Rajasthan Royals are all set to take on the Gujarat Titans in their next encounter in the Qualifier 1 of the playoffs of Ipl 2022. The Sanju Samson-led side is coming off a victory against Chennai Super Kings in their final game of the league stage and the franchise will be looking to continue with the winning momentum into this game as well. They are likely to stick with the same combination.

Gujarat Titans, on the other hand, suffered a loss in their final game of the league stage against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Hardik Pandya-led side still has a lot of positives going their way despite the loss and they will be looking to be wiser with their lines and lengths instead of changing the personnel. Alzarri Joseph might replace Lockie Ferguson who did go for a few runs in the previous game.
