Rajasthan will be eyeing a fourth successive win when they meet bottom-placed Mumbai in match 44 of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. Sanju Samson's men successfully defended 144 against Bangalore, who they bowled out for 115. A win will take the franchise to the top of the points table.
Can Mumbai register their first win in the 15th edition? The most successful Indian T20 League side suffered a 36-run defeat against Lucknow in their last outing. They lost to Rajasthan by 23 runs in the opening fixture between both teams.
We look at five exciting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Rajasthan-Mumbai match.
S Samson vs Surya K Yadav
With 228 runs at a strike rate of 165.21, Sanju Samson is the second-leading run-getter for Rajasthan. He has made 25+ scores in the last three matches. Meanwhile, Suryakumar Yadav made just seven runs against Lucknow. It was the first time the 31-year-old got dismissed for a single-digit score in the ongoing season.
Verdict: The wicket-keeper batter could clinch this Match-Up.
D PADIKKAL vs T VARMA
In a Match-Up of young left-handed batters, Devdutt Padikkal and Tilak Varma take on each other. Padikkal has made only seven runs in two outings at DY Patil Stadium, while the 19-year-old clinched two half-centuries - 61 & 51* in Navi Mumbai. Tilak is Mumbai's leading run-scorer with 272 runs from eight innings.
Verdict: T Varma is likely to beat D Padikkal.
Did You Know? T Varma grabbed 110 fantasy points against Rajasthan in match 9 of the 2022 season
T BOULT vs J BUMRAH
Since his return from injury, Trent Boult hasn't picked up a wicket. The Kiwi pacer, who conceded more than ten runs per over in Rajasthan's last three games, will be keen to rediscover his form. Mumbai pacer Jasprit Bumrah is enduring one of the most disappointing Indian T20 League seasons. He bagged just two wickets in his last six games.
