Mumbai will take on Rajasthan in the 9th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai. The two teams are carrying very different momentums into the match. Mumbai lost their opening encounter against Delhi as Rishabh Pant’s team chased down the target set by Mumbai with 4 wickets in hand. While Rajasthan is coming into the match with a huge victory against Hyderabad in their first match. Rajasthan defeated the orange army by a margin of 61 runs.

Before the two teams take on each other let us look at the important details of the match.

Team News

Mumbai: The five-time Indian T20 League champions began their journey for the 15th edition on the wrong note. The middle order of the team lacked resilience and the bowlers of the team leaked runs at the most crucial phases of the match. With Suryakumar Yadav being available for selection for the next match, Mumbai will hope that their batting woes are solved in the next match.

Unavailable Players: No major news of unavailability.

Probable XI- Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard (O), Tim David (O), Daniel Sams (O), Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills (O), Basil Thampi.

Key Players:

Ishan Kishan: The most expensive buy of the mega auction of the Indian T20 League 2022 hit a great from in the very first match. He scored 81 runs off 48 deliveries in the match against Delhi. Mumbai will hope that he continues his good form and gives them one more good start in the next match.

Suryakumar Yadav: Suryakumar Yadav will be returning for Mumbai in the next match. Fans will be hoping that he brings the resilience in the batting order that they missed in the first match.

Rohit Sharma: Rohit looked in good touch in the first match but could not convert a good start into a big score. Mumbai will hope that their skipper capitalizes on his start in the next match.

Jasprit Bumrah: One of the main reasons for the Mumbai bowling failing in the first match was the fact that their main bowler Jasprit Bumrah was out of form. The franchise will expect that he recovers his form quickly and returns to his original self.

Rajasthan: Rajasthan looked like a team that has covered all its bases in the first match. From batting to bowling everything clicked for them. They will be looking to continue with their form in the next match and further.
