IPL2022 is up and running with all teams playing their opening matches. Teams are trying hard to find their balanced squad to plug the void left by foreign players availability issues. RCB is hardly hit by the absence of Josh Hazelwood, Jason Behrendoff, and Glenn Maxwell in their current squad while KKR are missing the services of Aaron Finch and Pat Cummins currently. KKR found their right balance and won their opening match against defending champions CSK comfortably by 6 wickets while RCB suffered a loss against KXIP by 5 wickets despite a good showing with the bat.
Faf Du Plessis announced his captaincy stint with a brilliant 57-ball 88 runs at the top. He shared valiant partnerships with Anuj Rawat (21 runs) and Virat Kohli (43* runs) in the match. Dinehs Karthik applied the finishing touches with his 14-ball 32 runs to take their team to 206/2 at the end of 20 overs. Rutherford, Hasaranga, and Ahmed will add depth in the lower order.
Their bowlers were taken to the cleaners as the opposition chased the target in 19 overs. Mohammed Siraj claimed 2 wickets but went for 59 runs in his 4 overs. Akash Deep, Harshal Patel, and Hasaranga picked up a wicket each but were unable to the stop the run flow. Their bowlers need to step up in this game to effectively control the opposition batters.

Ajinkya Rahane showcased his wide array strokes in his 34-ball 44 run knock in the last game. Venkatesh Iyer (16 runs), Nitish Rana (21 runs), Shreyas Iyer (21* runs), and Sam Billings (25 runs) played good cameos to build partnerships in the last game. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine were not needed with the bat in the last game.
Speedster Umesh Yadav set up the match with his initial burst dismissing the CSK openers cheaply and finishing with figures of 4-0-20-2. Spin duo of Varun Chakravarthy and Sunil Narine came to the party with combined figures of 8-0-38-1 to strangle the batters in middle overs effectively. Russell, Mavi, and Venkatesh Iyer are expected to bowl the remaining overs.

Mumbai has bright and sunny weather with very less to no chances of rain on the match day. We expect a full match with no external interruptions. Dew might come in to trouble the bowlers in second innings.
DY Patil stadium has a belter of track and the last match had a match tally of over 400+ runs across 2 innings. We expect another run feast with average scores to be around 180-190 runs in this match.
Both teams will opt to bat second on this pitch as the pitch will swing in the early overs and dew will settle down in the second innings troubling the bowlers to grip the ball.
RCB batting line-up build partnerships in the middle and made a big score despite a sedate start early in the match. Their bowlers were highly ineffective and lacked control and consistency needed on this wicket. KKR were clinical with the bat and ball in the last game barring the death overs. They have a good plying XI despite missing some players. We expect KKR to win this match owing to their all-round team balance in batting and bowling departments.
KKR will win the match
