IPL2022 has kicked off for its 15th season with some excitement among the fans with 2 new teams in the mix. Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals are the last 2 teams to play their opening game after all the other teams already played their first matches. Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural edition of the IPL and are yet to repeat their victorious campaign till date. They failed to qualify to the top-4 in the last 3 seasons on a trot and their first aim will be qualify for the play-offs. Sunrisers Hyderabad were consistent and qualified for the play-offs for the six out of the last 7 seasons. But their worst campaign came in the last year when they ended with the wooden spoons for the first time. Both teams will be looking for a positive start with a victory in the first match to kick off.
Skipper Kane Williamson is expected to amke a comeback to competetive cricket after a long break due to injury concerns in this IPL. Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi are expected to open the batting this year. Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Philips are the big names in the middle order alongside the young players Aiden Markram, Priyam Garg, and Abdul Samad in the middle order. They slightly lack experience in their middle order and will expect tehir youth to step up in this season.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan will be their pace spearheads alongside super-fast Umran Malik who can bowl in the speeds of 150+ kmph consistently. Karthik Tyagi, Romario Shepherd, Marco Jenson, and Sean Abbott will further add strength to their pace attack. Washington Sundar, Shreyas Gopal, and Jagadeesa Suchith are expected to take care of the spin department.

Rajasthan Royals will be led by Sanju Samson for this season too and he will be eager to showcase his credentials as a batter this year. They have exciting young Indian players like Devdutt Padikkal, Yashaswi Jaiswal, Karun Nair, and Riyan Parag in the batting department alongside international stars such as Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, James Neesham, Daryl Mitchell, and Rassie Van Der Dussen to strengthen their batting department. RR will have an array of batting stars to pick from and it is a good problem to have for any team.
They have two quality versatile experienced spin duo in form of Ravi Ashwin and Yuzi Chahal in their playing XI. India`s latest pace star Prasidh Krishna and Trent Boult will be expected to play a big role with new ball. Navdeep Saini, Obed McCoy, and Nathan Coulter Nile will add variety and depth to their pace attack. They also have exciting unproven young talents waiting to showcase their talents in bowling department.

Pune will have bright and sunny weather and dew might come into play in the second innings making to tough for the bowlers.
Pune is a black soil wicket and is expected to slightly slow and spinners will have a big impact at this venue. And the pitch might behave true for the first few matches and slow down as the tournament progresses. We expect the average scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.
Teams chasing has won all the matches played so far and considering the dew factor we expect both captains to chase the total if they win the toss.
Both teams have continuity with their captaincy stint in this season while have made wholesome changes in the batting order. RR has a better batting combination, experience, and firepower compared to SRH but lacks a big hitter in the lower order. Both teams have a superb pace attack with a variety of options to choose from, but RR has one of the strongest spin departments with the duo of Ashwin and Yuzi Chahal in their XI. We expect RR to win this match and kick off their campaign positively.
Rajasthan Royals will win the match
