Teams are battling for points and finding the ideal balance and depth in their playing XI in the Indian T20 League 2022. Rajasthan made a fantastic start to the tournament with back-to-back victories, but they lost their last match against Bangalore despite being in a strong position at half-time. They’ll be looking to win this match and make a comeback. After losing their first match, Lucknow has surged their way to the top of the league with a hat-trick of victories. They’ll be full of confidence and morale, and they’ll be looking to keep winning.
Rajasthan was defeated by Bangalore by 6 wickets in their most recent match. In the three matches so far, Jos Buttler has been their batting mainstay, scoring 35, 100, and 70 runs. In the middle order, Sanju Samson and Devdutt Padikkal have been crucial, while Shimron Hetmyer has been devastating in the death overs, scoring 108 runs at a strike rate of 188.
After a fantastic start, Prasidh Krishna and Trent Boult have shared the new ball and have been slightly off-colour in the previous two encounters. Yuzi Chahal has been their standout bowler so far, taking 7 wickets at a 5.5 RPO economy rate. Ravi Ashwin, who has a lot of experience, went for a lot in the last game and we anticipate him to do the same in this one. In this game, James Neesham might be brought in to give depth to the batting and bowling departments.
Quinton De Kock led the chase with 80 runs off 52 balls as Lucknow raced down a difficult total of 150 runs. KL Rahul, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, and Evin Lewis have all hit 50 or more runs while regularly assisting their team in important occasions. With all-rounders Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, and K Gowtham in the lower middle order, their batting looks quite calm and lengthy.
Avesh Khan has been their best pacer this season, taking seven wickets at six runs per over, while Jason Holder and Andrew Tye will share the pace duties. Ravi Bishnoi has been outstanding in all three games so far, and K Gowtham had an immediate impact on his debut, as they each took three wickets in the last game. Marcus Stoinis is a free agent who might replace Evin Lewis or Andrew Tye depending on the team’s makeup.
In the evening, Mumbai will be cold and windy, with dew possible in the latter hours of the match. We anticipate a complete game with no interruptions. Wankhede has been a bit tough surface, although pacers and spinners have got some help. Batters must be wary of the new swinging ball, but if they are comfortable with it, they may take advantage. We anticipate a score of 160-180 runs in this match.
