Here's what Simon Doull said about today's pitch:
Bowlers who can hit the deck hard, bowl that back of a length can cause trouble to the batters, the dimensions are pretty much the same, although one side is slightly shorter. Teams that have batted first have won the final 9 times, win the toss, bat first and put up something around 180-190,

A fit-again Hardik took to leadership like fish takes to water and showed the way with his performances and the reason why he will always be an asset for Indian cricket.
Miller, who played his best cricket at least five years back, showed his 2.0 version that stunned one and all. Tewatia showed that those five sixes in Sharjah wasn't a mere flash in the pan.
Rashid Khan knew that he would be read well, so he became all the more parsimonious. Wriddhiman Saha after Rahul Dravid's hard-talk had reached a dead-end in his career but got a new lease of life and at least one more season to look forward to.
It is not known if Titans skipper Hardik has watched it but for him and head coach Ashish Nehra, this journey of two months has been nothing short of spectacular. They have made a lot of people eat a humble pie because many, including experts, termed them a team of no-hopers post-auction. A team that looked like a rag-tag outfit with only a few good players like David Miller, considered past their sell-by date, or one-match wonders like Rahul Tewatia, it didn't really look good on paper.
But then you wouldn't call cricket a "game of glorious uncertainties" if everything would be decided on pape
Two leaders, who are minefields of talent in their own right, one team that has made a mockery of all betting odds and the other trying to complete a cycle that started 15 summers back, the IPL final between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals is about this and much more.
When IPL started over two months back, nobody would have believed that two captains walking out for toss in the title clash will be Hardik Pandya and Sanju Samson.
'Remember the Titans', a 2000 Hollywood film headlined by Denzel Washington is considered one of the best sports films on the proverbial underdog story, which always has a capital.
Graeme Smith said that Rajasthan have an advantage over GT since they have won the Qualifier 2 on the same surface. Motera Stadium which hosted RR vs RCB will also be the venue for the IPL final.
Suresh Raina feels the advantage lies with Gujarat Titans who got the direct ticket to the finals after defeating Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 1. GT will have the slight edge because they have got a good 4-5 days rest, Raina said adding that the tempo they have had in this season will further boost their confidence.
Hardik Pandya-led Gujarat Titans have been enjoying their maiden IPL season as they reached the final in their debut after crushing Rajasthan in Qualifier 1. The team also became the first team to qualify for the playoffs as they finished at the top of the points table with 10 wins in 14 matches.
