Ind T20 League 2022

Match 44: RAJ vs. MUM 


It’s a very special day at the Indian T20 League. The history between Mumbai and Rajasthan is a long one but today, it is more than just a match as Rajasthan is all set to pay a tribute to their “First Royal”, King Shane Warne. The first ever captain of the Rajasthan side tragically passed away in the last month and thus, the team is all set to wear a special kit in order to honour the legendary leg spinner.

Coming to Mumbai, the team hasn’t won one single match this season and Rajasthan is one of the best sides of the tournament. Rohit Sharma along with Ishan Kishan was supposed to create magic this season but the captain along with Ishan – who was sold for 15.25 crores looked pretty ordinary and that’s one of the biggest reasons why Mumbai didn’t win any of the Games. Dewald Brevis is young and it will take some time for him to come to the party. He is giving the start but the problem with Mumbai is that no one except Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Verma is performing on a consistent basis. Jasprit Bumrah is having a terrible season and with the kind of bowling line-up that the team has, you can’t really win a competition. The chances are very thin for them to do something special and win the match against Rajasthan. Be it their bowling or batting, the team needs to improve massively to get their first win of the season. Else, questions will be asked as Rohit is also the captain of the national side and his credibility as a captain will be questioned but in reality, no one can really do anything with this squad. The team looks okayish but except two, none of them are playing well.

Rajasthan on the other hand gets triggered every time they see Mumbai. Their record against them is pretty solid and Jos Buttler always seems to dominate against them. Even after playing five premium bowlers, the team never faced any kind of problem with their batting as everyone is contributing their bit and that’s why Rajasthan are one of the top two teams in the points table. You can’t really speak a lot about them as their squad is pretty much sorted. No such change is required as Riyan Parag has joined the party as well. His form was the only concern but that too is history now.

Match Prediction

Rajasthan are the favourites to win the match. They would look forward to paying a tribute to Shane Warne by dedicating the win and they should get the job done.


Top Fantasy Picks 

Jos Buttler lived up to his tag of game changer in the last game. His heroics with bat in hand sealed the game so many times this season. The present Orange Cap holder has already hit 3 centuries in this season and will be gunning for his fourth against a weak bowling line-up of Mumbai.

Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the most dependable batters of the Mumbai franchise. His heroics are once again required for Mumbai to register their first win of the season.

Yuzi Chahal is having a great Ind T20 League thus far. The spin wizard is the leading wicket-taker of the tournament and has changed the complexation of the match for many matches now. 

Tilak Verma is the only Mumbai player alongside Suryakumar Yadav who has been consistent this season. Mumbai depends a lot on him and he needs to get the run for Mumbai to post a decent score.


Risky Captaincy Choice   

Kieron Pollard is our pick for the Risky Captaincy Choice. The Caribbean Giant is yet to come to the party but is timing the ball well. Once he gets going, Mumbai will do well for sure.
