Both teams, RR and DC are in the race for the playoff of IPL 2022. Rajasthan is the third-best performing team of IPL 2022 right now with seven wins to their name. They had lost four out of eleven matches till now and are holding the third position on the points table. They have 14 points and a good run rate and another win in this match may increase their chances of qualifying. They had beaten PBKS in their most recent match. On the other side, DC had also played eleven matches with just five wins to their name. They have lost six matches and are holding the fifth position on the table. They are tied in the points with SRH and Punjab but are better in net run rate than the above-mentioned teams. They had faced a heavy defeat against CSK in the most recent match by a big margin. Both teams have been good in IPL 2022 and this match may be very interesting.
RAJASTHAN ROYALS REVIEWS
Rajasthan lost two matches in a row but bounced back strongly in the most recent match against Punjab and won the match with a handsome margin of six wickets. The bowling department of RR had not been impressive in the previous matches and we also saw this in the previous match where they leaked 189 runs in 20 overs. Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Sen, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Yuzvendra Chahal are leading the bowling department of RR. Yuzvendra Chahal was the most successful bowler in the previous match with three wickets to his name in four overs against 28 runs. Ravi Ashwin also performed well and picked one wicket in four overs while he was charged for 32 runs. Prasidh Krishna was the other bowler who picked one wicket but he leaked a lot of runs. He was charged for 48 runs in four overs. Kuldeep Sen and Boult were the bowlers who could not pick any wicket. We think that the management of RR needs to test some bowlers from the bench strength and we are sure that they will make some changes in the bowling department.
RR had won most of its matches due to the best performance by the batting order. The most recent match against Punjab is a key witness of it where they chased the target of 190 runs in 19.4 overs. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler are opening the batting innings for Rajasthan and have provided a good opening start in almost every match. Sanju Samson had promoted himself up the order and now he batted at the one-down position. Devdutt Padikkal, Shimron Hetmyer, and Riyan Parag are handling the middle and lower batting order. Yashasvi Jaiswal was the most successful batter in the previous match with 68 runs to his name in 41 balls with the help of nine boundaries and two huge sixes. Shimron Hetmyer smashed the innings of 31 runs on just 16 balls at the strike rate of 193. Jos Buttler was the other batter who batted well and scored 30 runs on 16 balls with the help of five boundaries and one huge six. Devdutt Padikkal scored 31 runs while Sanju Samson had 23 runs to his name.
DELHI CAPITALS REVIEWS
DC had disappointed its fans in some of the most recent matches in IPL 2022. The batting order of Delhi had collapsed in the most recent two matches. The bowling department of DC is strong and experienced but they had failed to perform as many of us were expecting. They leaked more than 200 runs in the most recent match against CSK. Shardul Thakur, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, and Mitchell Marsh are the leading bowlers of Delhi but these all bowlers have failed. Nortje was the highest wicket-taker in the previous match with three wickets to his name in four overs against 42 runs. We can say that Khaleel Ahmed was the most successful bowler who picked two wickets in four overs against just 28 runs. Mitchell Marsh picked one wicket while Thakur, Axar Patel, and Kuldeep Yadav were the bowlers who remained wicketless. Kuldeep Yadav proved the most expensive bowler who leaked 43 runs in just three overs while Thakur was charged for 38 runs in three overs.
The batting order of Delhi is strong but it collapsed against PBKS. Their full team came back to the pavilion on a total of just 117 runs in 17.4 overs while chasing the target of 209 runs. David Warner and Srikar Bharat are opening the batting inning for DC while Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, and Rovman Powell are handling the middle batting order, and Ripal Patel, Axar Patel, and Shardul Thakur are taking care of the lower batting order of Delhi. David Warner had been good in IPL 2022 but he could not score some big runs on the board. Rovman Powell and Rishabh Pant are the other batters who had been good but they also failed to perform well in the most recent match. Mitchell Marsh was the highest run-scorer with just 25 runs to his name. Shardul Thakur scored 24 runs while Rishabh Pant had 21 runs to his name. We think the management of DC needs to make some crucial decisions and should test some big names that are available in the bench strength. They need to make some changes in the batting and bowling departments. We are sure that the playing eleven of Delhi will be changed in this match.
Venue: Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai

TOSS PREDICTION IN TODAY’S MATCH PREDICTION
The toss is going to play an important part in the result of every match of IPL 2022 as we had observed in the previous matches. According to toss prediction, the team who will win the toss will elect to field first as defending had been difficult in the most recent matches of IPL.
PITCH REPORT AND CONDITIONS
The 58th match of IPL T20, 2022 is going to be held at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai. We had observed in the previous matches played here that the pitch here at this venue is good for batting in early overs. The track has a good amount of pace and bounce which allows the batsmen to score good cricketing shots but this ground also has big boundaries which can be a plus point for the bowlers. A score of 190 plus seems to be a par score.
WEATHER REPORT FOR TODAY’S MATCH
The weather forecast for Mumbai is good for this cricket match. There are almost no chances of rain in the region and we are hopeful that we will have a full match to enjoy.
PROBABLE PLAYING XI FOR RR VS DC
Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Devdutt Padikkal, Daryl Mitchell/Rassie van der Dussen, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prasidh Krishna
KS Bharat, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Lalit Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav
PROBABLE TOP PERFORMERS
PROBABLE BEST BATTER OF THE MATCH: JOS BUTTLER
Jos Buttler is enjoying a dream run this season and is sitting comfortably on top of the Orange Cap list with 618 runs from 11 matches. So it is a no-brainer that the Englishman would be expected to once again lay a solid foundation by providing a brisk start for the inaugural edition’s winners. Jos already has three centuries to his name this year and would be hoping for a fourth one and fifth overall in the IPL. Therefore, the Delhi bowlers must chalk out a plan to get rid of him early on.
PROBABLE BEST BOWLER OF THE MATCH: YUZVENDRA CHAHAL
The best thing for Rajasthan Royals is that they have both the Orange and the Purple cap holders on their side. Wrist-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is enjoying an outstanding season having registered 22 scalps to his name from 11 matches. The leggie might have gone wicketless on a couple of occasions but can provide some unexpected setbacks to the opposition in the middle overs. Therefore, it all depends on how the Delhi batters negotiate his spin in those four overs.
WINNING CHANCES OF TODAY’S MATCH FOR THE BOTH TEAMS
Rajasthan Royals is overall a strong team when we compare with Delhi Capitals. They have the best players in the t20 format of cricket. The batting order of this team is also strong and some well-known hitters of the t20 format are part of the squad of this team, so the winning chances of today’s match for Rajasthan Royals have been increased.
