In a highly anticipated clash, Rajasthan Royals and Gujarat Titans will cross swords against each other in the 48th group-stage fixture of the ongoing Indian Premier League season. This will be the second game between these two teams in the tournament. The previous face-off saw Rajasthan Royals secure a narrow three-wicket win over the Titans in a high-scoring thriller.
