This season Rajasthan Royals have looked to see out Rashid Khan, the primary threat in Gujarat Titans' bowling attack. The cautious approach meant he went wicketless in the two games he played against them but conceded only 39 runs from eight overs. It's likely that Royals undertake a similar approach in the grand finale at the Narendra Modi Satdium in Ahmedabad becuase almost all of Rajasthan's batters have had trouble facing the superstar leggie. Jos Buttler is yet to score a boundary against him, while Sanju Samson and Shimron Hetmyer have perished trying to attack him. It is a sub-plot that could be a determining factor in the outcome of the summit clash.
