Fantasy Cricket Team for Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match
We have opted for a fantasy cricket team based on the recent performances, overall impact, and credit points.
Power Players for Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match
Sanju Samson continued where he left off in the last season. He started the 2022 campaign with a Player-of-the-Match performance against Hyderabad. He smashed 55 off 27, including five sixes. His last four scores against Mumbai read 54*, 0, 3, and 42. His attacking brand of cricket can, at times, produce hot and cold performances.
Ishan Kishan justified the millions of dollars spent on him by the Mumbai franchise. The rising star bludgeoned the Delhi bowlers to pieces, scoring an unbeaten 81 off 48.
Yuzvendra Chahal has not gone wicketless since his last nine competitive games. He took 3 for 22 in the opening game.
Suryakumar Yadav is back in action! For a batter who has a reputation of being an exceptional player of spin, facing the likes of Chahal and R Ashwin will be an exciting task. The champion batter played a breathtaking knock of 79* against Rajasthan in 2020.
Smart Picks for Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match
Rohit Sharma hit two spectacular sixes: a drive over covers and a pull past fine leg. However, he does not go all guns blazing the way Ishan does. His strike rate reads 130 in the league and he hasn’t averaged over 30 since the 2016 season.
Jos Buttler’s last two scores against Mumbai are 41 off 32 and 70 off 44. He looked in good touch against Hyderabad, slamming three sixes in his 35-run knock.
Basil Thampi did the bulk of the damage for Mumbai with the ball. His attacking pace-bowling fetched him a three-wicket haul but at the expense of 8.8 economy.
Batting at No. 4 did not affect Devdutt Padikkal’s gameplay. He scored 41 off 29, continuing the momentum the top-order had set up.
Three wrist-spinners have had a good time this edition and Murugan Ashwin is one of them. Although Mumbai lost, he managed to register bowling figures of 2 for 14 in 4 overs.
Trent Boult will lock horns with his former franchise. Above all, he will be up against Rohit who is vulnerable against the in-swinging deliveries. We have a key battle on offer!
Mumbai vs Rajasthan Match Preview
Mumbai have won three of the last four games against Rajasthan, and their overall head-to-head tally reads 13-11 in favour of Mumbai. That being said, Rajasthan appear stronger on paper. They have a good balance of experience and aggression in their batting, spin and pace department.
