Date: 2nd April, 2022
Time: 03:30 PM IST
Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai
On Saturday, Mumbai will face confident Rajasthan in the ninth encounter of the Indian T20 League 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai (April 2). Rohit Sharma’s squad continued its unfavourable record of failing to win their season opener against Delhi, while Rajasthan, led by skipper Sanju Samson and the bowlers, got their campaign off to a flying start with a win against Hyderabad.
Mumbai’s Indian T20 League 2022 campaign got off to a shaky start. The five-time winners are notorious for slowing down in the first few games before cranking up the tempo after one or two. In their first game, they were outplayed by Delhi. With four wickets remaining, Mumbai were beaten by Delhi after scoring 177 runs batting first. The Delhi bottom middle-order ripped the Mumbai bowlers to shreds. Jasprit Bumrah also took a thumping, conceding 43 runs in 3.2 overs. Mumbai will strive to enhance their bowling performance. The top order performed admirably, with Ishan Kishan scoring a stunning 81* and Rohit Sharma (41 runs) looking in terrific form.
Rajasthan is looking particularly strong this season, with a well-balanced lineup. They won their opening game against Hyderabad by 61 runs without breaking a sweat. Sanju Samson, Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, and Jos Buttler were among the Rajasthan hitters who appeared in terrific form. Prasidh Krishna and Yuzvendra Chahal, in particular, bowled really effectively. Trent Boult and Ravichandran Ashwin were also outstanding with the bat. Rajasthan performed well together in the first encounter and will want to do it again in this one.
In the last match, the ground at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy was a touch dry, which aided the spinners. Overall, it was a fantastic pitch to bat on, and this match will be no different. Batters will have a good time on this pitch since the ball hits the bat wonderfully. As the ball ages, the spinners will get some traction. At this site, the average first-inning score is 190 runs. In the nine games played here, chasing teams have won eight of them.
