The most awaited cricket carnival is finally here! Chennai and Kolkata will lock horns in the opening match of Indian T20 League 2022. The tournament opener will be held at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai allowing 25% spectators at the venue. Chennai won the Indian T20 League title in 2021.

In the 28 matches played between these 2 teams, Chennai won 18 matches while Kolkata claimed the victory 9 times.

Team Preview

Chennai

During the Indian T20 League 2022 auction last month, Chennai bought back the majority of their players, preserving their core. The team will try to pick up where it left off last year, however Deepak Chahar and Moeen Ali will not be seen playing in the first match. Apart from Dhoni; Ravindra Jadeja, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, and Dwayne Bravo will all be looking to defend the Yellow Brigade’s crown. Fans will witness the charm of the seasoned campaigners once again with quite a few senior players in the squad this time.

Kolkata

Kolkata on the other hand is moving in a different direction as the team made huge changes in their squad this time with a new captain Shreyas Iyer and an impressive bowling line up with overseas players. The team looks quite balanced this year as they aim to begin with a dominating start. Kolkata fans are hoping to see the consistent momentum of the year in this season.

Pitch Report & Conditions

On match day, there is no possibility of rain, but a fair bit of humidity is a good chance. That could indicate that there will be some dew in the second half, making chasing easier. In terms of the pitch, we anticipate an absolute batting gem to begin with. There should be plenty of sixes and fours as the ball comes on nicely to the bat.
