In the meantime, the final of the 15th season got off to a great start with the performances of Bollywood stars. Ranveer Singh and AR Rahman graced the stage with their performance which energised the jam-packed crowd of 110,000 people at the Narendra Modi Stadium.
The closing ceremony was followed by a coin toss, which Sanju Samson won. In the final game, the Rajasthan captain elected to bat first. Both teams will be energised to compete in the grand finale. This will be Rajasthan’s first appearance in the final since the 2008 season, which they won under the leadership of Shane Warne. On the other hand, Gujarat will be playing in front of their home crowd for the first time in their debut game.
The Hardik Pandya-led team has put up a complete team show throughout the season. All of their players have given good performances at some stage or the other. The team defeated Rajasthan in the qualifier to go to the final, which will provide them with a significant boost.
The inaugural champions have also seen some spectacular performances from their players. Jos Buttler has completely dominated the tournament with over 800 runs and four centuries. Yuzvendra Chahal is another player who has consistently performed well for the team. They beat Bangalore by seven wickets to make a spot in the final.
