IPL 2022 Final GT vs RR: This Gujarati player, despite reaching the final, would sit out the last match!
IPL 2022: Gujarat Titans batsman Matthew Wade has revealed that, despite his club reaching the finals in their maiden year, the IPL 2022 season did not go as planned for him. The 34-year-old Australian wicket-keeper batsman hit 35 from 30 balls in Qualifier 1 against the Rajasthan Royals to get to the IPL 2022 final.
Wade has had a terrible season
Wade admitted he felt discouraged until he shot a magnificent 35 in Qualifier 1 at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. “It has been a frustrating tournament individually,” Wade said prior of the IPL. I’m hitting the ball good, yet I’ve been battling to score runs since rejoining the team. Just a little bit of good fielding, but you should keep attempting to score runs. On Sunday, the 2022 final will be contested here against the Rajasthan Royals.
Wade returned to the IPL after an 11-year absence, appearing in three matches for the Delhi Daredevils (Delhi Capitals) in 2011. Despite missing two of his nine IPL innings this season, the Australian’s top score this season is 35 against Rajasthan. He was also left out of the playing XI for six matches owing to poor form, as the Titans, captained by Hardik Pandya, featured one additional bowler.

“As a player, it’s pretty simple if there’s a solid reason why you’re not playing, and the reason why I wasn’t selected in the team was because Hardik Pandya was injured, so We had to give an opportunity to a bowler,” Wade revealed. Wade stated that if given the opportunity, he would be happy to play franchise cricket in the future, but if not, he will not say anything to them.
‘I’m not really interested in franchise cricket, but if I get an opportunity, I’ll take it,’ he added. ‘I just want to be comfortable, spend some time with my family after the World Cup, and see what the remaining few years of my career have in store for me,’ he said.
