It will be the first Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 match outside the Mumbai metropolitan region. It will also be the last of the opening round.
As Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals ride the Mumbai-Pune Expressway en route to the Maharashtra Cricket Association International Stadium on the outskirts of the education capital, both teams are hoping for a change of fortune after an unforgettable season last season.
After taking the last two places in the points table in the 2021 edition, both outfits preferred to change the combination a lot in the players auction.
In addition to adding Devdutt Padikkal to its top order, Rajasthan Royals has created a bowling ensemble that can be as powerful as any other T20 attack not only in IPL but around the world. With the spin twins of R. Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal joining the speed combo of Trent Boult and the promising Prasidh Krishna, despite the fifth bowling option likely to appear as a small chink in his armor, it will be a very special effort. required for each stroke line. to dominate the Royals bowlers.
So the Sunrisers will be on the lookout for Nicholas Pooran and Rahul Tripathi, two of their major acquisitions, to do whatever it takes with the bat along with Captain Kane Williamson. Tripathi, the star of Knight Riders turnaround in 2021 IPL, who will represent Maharashtra on the domestic circuit, will be pivotal in the opening match as he will play at his home ground.
While the Royals hope their death bowling options will turn out well, the Sunrisers won’t be short of options as long as Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T. Natarajan are fit. It will be interesting to see if Umran Malik can translate his raw pace into consistent wicket-taking from Tuesday.
If he can be the main wicket-taker, Sunrisers will not only hope not to miss Rashid Khan, but also start his campaign on a winning note.
