April 29, 2022

The 44th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 will be played between Rajasthan and Mumbai. This will be the second encounter between the two teams this season. Rajasthan convincingly won the previous encounter by 23 runs. Their next match will be played at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on the 30th of April. Rajasthan is presently in second place on the points table, having won six of their eight games. After eight games, Mumbai, on the other side, is still looking for their first win. They’re at the bottom of the table.

Team Updates


On the back of sizzling performances from Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal, Rajasthan have enjoyed great success this season. The likes of Sanju Samson, Shinron Hetmyer and Riyan Parag have also played their part. Rajasthan also have one of the best bowling attack comprising Chahal, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna R Ashwin and Kuldeep Sen

Players to watch out for

Jos Buttler- Jos Buttler has been great at the top for Rajasthan. He currently holds the orange cap with 499 runs in eight matches at a strike rate of 160. In the last encounter against Mumbai, he scored a century. He would want to make an impact in this match as well.

Yuzvendra Chahal- With 18 wickets in eight matches already, Yuzvendra Chahal is currently the purple cap holder. He has been a vital member of the team and has bowled with an economy of 7.09 this season. He would be keen to do well in the coming game and make a safe distance from Kuldeep Yadav, who is chasing the Purple cap.

Probable Playing XI

Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Daryl Mitchell, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal


The five-time champions, Mumbai, have not played up to their potential this season. The top order for the team has been a major letdown. The poor form of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan have dented the team’s chances. It will be brilliant for the team if these two can get back to form. Players like Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma, on the other hand, have been very consistent.

The bowling, however, for Mumbai have been ordinary. Bumrah have failed to pick wickets while others have leaked too many runs.

Players to watch out for

Tilak Varma- Tilak Varma, 19, has been a fantastic discovery for the team this season. In the eight matches that he has played, Varma has scored 272 runs, most by a Mumbai batter this season. He will be keen to have another good game.

Rohit Sharma- With 153 runs in eight games, the team captain, Rohit Sharma, has not been the most efficient batter. He did, however, score 39 runs in his most recent outing against Lucknow. He had the right intent in the match and looked in good touch. In the following game, Sharma will like to build on the momentum and play a good hand.

Probable Playing XI

Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Hrithik Shokeen, Daniel Sams, Jaydev Unadkat, Riley Meredith, Jasprit Bumrah

Pitch Report

The DY Patil Stadium has been a decent wicket to bat on this season. However, it has begun to slow down, making spinners more useful. The batters will need some time in the middle to get used to the pace. The team winning the toss would want to bowl first given the dew around.
