Matthew Wade has been the biggest disappointment for Gujarat Titans this season. With just 156 runs in 9 games at an average of 16.56 and a strike rate of 116.41, he has blown cold. It is the stark contrast to his match-winning knock in the T20 World Cup semifinal against Pakistan when he smashed 17-ball 41. Wade admits it has been a frustrating season.

“It’s been a frustrating tournament personally, I’ve been hitting the ball well, especially since I came back into the team. It just hasn’t quite clicked. But you’ve just got to stay brave and keep swinging the bat like you know you can swing it,” Matthew Wade said ahead of the final.

GT Playing XI vs RR: Should Matthew Wade and Lockie Ferguson play?

  • 35 off 21 balls was Matthew Wade’s best of IPL 2022 that came against RR in the Qualifier 1.
  • In IPL 2022, he has averaged just 16.56 in 9 matches, scoring only 156 runs.
  • His unpredictability in the top order besides Shubman Gill’s hot and cold run means, Gujarat need a reliable batter at No 3.
  • Furthermore, Wade’s struggle against quality spin is another factor to worry about. As the Motera Stadium surface has aided the spinners, he could be in trouble.
  • RR have two quality spinners in R Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal to counter Wade.
  • As for Lockie Ferguson, he was benched for the RR clash after bowling just 1.4 overs against RCB.
  • But with Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson sending Alzarri Joseph to the cleaners, Lockie is expected to be back.
  • Ferguson’s pace in the powerplay could be game-changing while he has been amongst wickets with 12 scalps from as many games.

As for other positions, despite blowing hot and cold, Shubman Gill remains the top choice to open for Gujarat Titans. Wriddhiman Saha has been impressive despite getting out for a duck in the last match.

In the middle-order, Hardik Pandya and David Miller has been impressive this season and will continue to occupy No 4 & 5. Rahul Tewatia, the Iceman, will be eager to pull off another great escape if the situation is needed.

In pace department, Lockie Ferguson is likely to make a comeback after sitting out in Qualifier 1. Alzarri Joseph had a terrible run against RR as he was taken to cleaners for 27 runs in just two overs by Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler. It forced Hardik to take up the mantle himself and complete bowl two overs.

Sai Kishore is the other bowler who was expensive but considering the surface, he is likely to retain his place to partner with Rashid Khan.
