Defending champions Chennai Super Kings face an acid test in the 22nd game of the Indian Premier League 2022 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. CSK suffered yet another loss going down against the Sunrisers Hyderabad by a big margin in their last game. RCB is continuing with its good show and the side comes here with a win against Mumbai Indians.
Chennai Super Kings look short of confidence with four consecutive losses. Most of their key players have been in poor form and this is increasing the pressure on the side. RCB come here with three consecutive wins. CSK have to win this game to keep their hopes alive and it will be interesting to see if the side is up to the task in this game.
Ravindra Jadeja finds his side in deep trouble. It has been the worst start for the side in an IPL season where they have lost the first four games. They went down against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 8 wickets. Their top order has repeatedly failed and the bowling attack has been one of the weakest in years. Jadeja would like his side to put these losses behind and come up with a good show.
Ruturaj Gaikwad has failed in all games and he is likely to make way for Devon Conway who will look to offer a good start with Robin Uthappa. Moeen Ali has played well and he has to set up partnerships with Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu. Jadeja, MS Dhoni, and Dwayne Bravo are clear hitters of the ball and the side would need them to bat well given the importance of this game.
Mukesh Choudhary and Maheesh Theekshana did well with the ball in the last game and a good show would be needed from them against RCB’s strong batting line-up. Jadeja and Moeen Ali are experienced bowlers and it is high time they deliver with the ball in this must-win game. Tushar Deshpande is likely to come into the side for this game and he needs to bowl tight lines.

Faf du Plessis would be proud of the way his side is shaping up in the tournament. They defeated the Mumbai Indians in the last game by 7 wickets, their third consecutive win, and du Plessis would like to see his side perform the same way. His opponents are facing the heat and the RCB skipper would like to take advantage of it and improve his side’s position on the points table.
Openers Faf du Plessis and Anuj Rawat have both scored runs in the tournament and the side would like to see a confident start from them. Virat Kohli’s return to form is the biggest news for the side and he would like to build partnerships with Dinesh Karthik and Glenn Maxwell. Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, and David Willey add to the side’s batting strength down the order.
Mohammad Siraj has to bowl better lines than he has been sharing the new ball with Willey. Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel are in great form, and they are troubling opponents. The side would like to see them stick to it for this game. Shahbaz Khan, Akash Deep, and Maxwell add to the side’s bowling depth.

The weather prediction for Mumbai is for partly cloudy skies on April 12 and the conditions are expected to be good for batting. Apart from the slowness, the wicket here has been a flat one where batsmen can score runs easily. A score of 180 runs would be a good total for the side batting first.
Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy is one of the best batting wickets in India. The ball comes onto the bat nicely and we have seen big scores being put up by batsmen. It is a difficult venue for the fast bowler with the wicket offering them very little. Spinners have enjoyed success here as the dry wicket lets them turn the ball sharply.
We have seen high-scoring games at this venue, but the wicket has slowed down a bit here where setting up a score on the board has become a challenge. The side winning the toss would like to have a victory target in mind and invite the opposition to bat first.
The two sides come into this game with contrasting forms. Chennai Super Kings would need something special to bring an end to their misery. Their batting especially at the top will need to click for the side to emerge victorious here. Royal Challengers Bangalore are enjoying a dream run in the tournament and their batsmen are in good form and this will make them favorites in this game.
