IPL Final 2022: GT vs RR Live stream - When and where to watch on OTT

After 73 entertaining games of cricket, it all comes down to this in this year’s Indian Premier League. The much-awaited IPL final will be played between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Sunday. The winners will take home this year’s IPL trophy and the game will be available for Indian fans on OTT.

Gujarat Titans have done the unexpected, and reached all the way to their first IPL final, that too in their maiden season. Led by Hardik Pandya, the new franchise met RR in the first qualifier earlier this week. RR put up a decent score of 188 at Eden Gardens, with big contributions from Jos Buttler and Sanju Samason. However, the Titans chased down the score with three balls to spare, thanks to a mid-wicket stand between Pandya and David Miller, taking them straight to the final. 

Having lost the first qualifier, RR got a second chance at making it to the final, playing Royal Challengers of Bangalore in the second qualifier. RCB had beaten Lucknow Super Giants in the eliminator. 

RCB were forced to bat first, and were restricted to just 157, with RR’s Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna and Obed Mccoy shining with the ball, picking up important wickets in crucial moments of the game. The RCB innings never picked up pace, and this made things easy for RR as they came out to chase. 

Coming out to chase, RR looked in control of the game at every stage. Jos Buttler matched Virat Kohli’s record of four centuries in a season, by smashing 106 not out in just 60 balls. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson kept the Englishman company, as he demolished the RCB bowling lineup. RR chased the score down with time to spare, taking them to a final after the maiden IPL season, which they won under the leadership of the late Shane Warne.

As the two teams face off against each other in the all important final, they will try to put the games of the past away and battle each other with everything they have. With big hitters such as Buttler and Pandya and ace bowlers such as Trent Boult and Rashid Khan on show, fans can expect an entertaining final that could be fought to the final ball.

Cricket fans in India can stream the final of this year’s IPL live on Disney+ Hotstar. The match will start today at 8:00 PM IST at the Narendra Modi Stadium with a closing ceremony performance by A.R. Rahman and Ranveer Singh.
