Mumbai Indians will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they take on Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2022 on Saturday. Here is all you need to know about the much-anticipated clash.
Mumbai Indians (MI) losing streak in the opening game of their Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign continued this season as the Rohit Sharma-led side lost their first game against Delhi Capitals (DC) by four wickets. MI will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they take on Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their second game on Saturday (April 2nd).
Batting first, Mumbai Indians rode on Ishan Kishan's stunning knock of 48-ball 81 to post a strong total of 177 runs on the board. MI bowlers were taken to the cleaners by Axar Patel and Lalit Yadav, who took DC over the line with 10 balls to spare. While Jasprit Bumrah conceded 43 runs in just 3.2 overs, Daniel Sams was taken for 57 runs in his spell of four overs.
Rajasthan Royals got off to a winning start this season as they hammered Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 61 runs in their first game of the season. RR displayed an emphatic all-round performance against SRH as they posted a massive total of 210 runs, batting first and went on to defend it comfortably.
While Mumbai Indians will hope their bowling attack can revive their form against the Royals on Saturday, Sanju Samson & Co. will be hopeful of continuing their terrific show with the bat after blowing away Sunrisers Hyderabad in their opening game.
