Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Team Previews
Rohit Sharma’s team would be wise to forget the previous six games. They haven’t been in this position in a decade, having lost their first six games of the season. They were defeated by the Lucknow Super Giants by 18 runs in their most recent game, another poor performance from their bowlers. The team needs to win this game in order to have even a remote chance of making the playoffs.
The opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan must gel and put on a good opening wicket stand. Suryakumar Yadav, Dewald Brevis, and Tilak Varma have done well for the side, and they will look for runs from them. Fabian Allen’s addition to the squad has increased its depth, and he, along with Kieron Pollard, will need to fire on all cylinders in this game.
However, the team would be concerned about the form of other bowlers who have failed to trouble the batsmen. Jasprit Bumrah, Murugan Ashwin, and Tymal have all leaked runs, and the team will rely on them to perform in this game.
Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Jaydev Unadkat, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills, Fabian Allen
Ravindra Jadeja would be concerned about his team’s progress. They have only won two games and currently sit in ninth place on the points table. The team comes in after a three-wicket loss to the Gujarat Titans, a game they had in hand but lost due to poor bowling near the end of the innings. Their opponents have yet to win a game, and Jadeja will look to take advantage of this weakness and win this game.
Ruturaj Gaikwad finally found his form in the last game and will need to form a strong partnership with Robin Uthappa. With an impressive batting depth, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, and Shivam Dubey must play freely in the middle order.
Mukesh Choudhary and Maheesh Theekshana bowled well in the previous game, and they will need to bowl well early in this game. The rest of the bowling attack has struggled, and the team would benefit from good spells from Bravo, Jadeja, and Ali, all of whom have years of experience in this format of the game.
Predicted XI: Ravindra Jadeja (c), Robin Uthappa, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary

Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals Team Previews
In the previous game, Rishabh Pant’s team defeated the Punjab Kings by 9 wickets. The Capitals made a mockery of the small run chase in one of the season’s best demolishing performances. They would now face one of the best sides this season, and Pant would like his players to be inspired by their stellar record against the Royals.
David Warner is hitting the ball well and would like to get the game started with Prithvi Shaw, who had a great cameo in the previous game.
Thakur struggled in the previous game, and the team should give the ball to Mustafizur Rahman and Khaleel Ahmed, who have performed well. Axar Patel has been the team’s first choice bowler, and he forms a formidable partnership with Kuldeep Yadav. As the Royals have good hitters of the ball, the team would like to see Thakur bowl well in the death overs.
Predicted XI: Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Sarfaraz Khan, Shardul Thakur, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman, Khaleel Ahmed
Sanju Samson’s team narrowly avoided defeat in their last game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. They scored 217 runs and nearly threw it away, winning by only 7 runs. Their bowlers have looked out of sorts in the last two games, and Sampson would like to see a better performance against the Delhi Capitals, whom his team has struggled against in the last four seasons.
The team’s bowling has been an issue in the last two games, and they will need a strong start from Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna. Ashwin hasn’t been at his best, and the team would like to see him put his experience to good use alongside Yuzvendra Chahal, who has had a good season. Obed McCoy must perform well in this game to justify his inclusion in the lineup.
Predicted XI: Sanju Samson (c & wk), Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Karun Nair, Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Obed McCoy, Yuzvendra Chahal

The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has been a typical T20 venue, with batsmen enjoying batting on this surface. In recent years, high-scoring games have been the norm at this venue. Fast bowlers have little chance on this wicket, but spinners who can use the turn have done well in the past.
On April 22, the weather in Mumbai is expected to be hot and humid. This season’s pitch has looked good for batting so far and is expected to be friendly to batsmen. Bowlers have struggled here because there isn’t much for them on the calm surface.
Delhi Capitals vs Rajasthan Royals Match Prediction
In the last two games, the Rajasthan Royals have struggled with the ball. The team’s batting has been a two-man show, and they will need others to step up if they are to win this game. The Delhi Capitals checked all the boxes in their most recent game and have a strong record against the Royals.
Rajasthan Royals is the favourite to beat Delhi Capitals at the odds of 1.80.
