The Indian Premier League is back and it's bigger than ever! We have had a mega auction that has reshuffled the entire set of players and we also have two new teams in addition to the eight that existed. Starting off are the finalists from last season, Chennai Super Kings and the Kolkata Knight Riders.
CSK has been dealt a couple of heavy blows ahead of its season opener. Deepak Chahar is unlikely to play any role for the first half of IPL 2022 and Moeen Ali is also stuck in the United Kingdom with some visa issues. That means two of their best players are unavailable for this match against KKR. CSK's batting seems a bit light on the batting. Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayadu, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, and MS Dhoni are likely to feature in the playing eleven. We think Ambati Rayadu and Ravindra Jadeja are the two batters that you can bet on to score some runs in this match.The bowling lineup should have at least one overseas fast bowler between Adam Milne and Chris Jordan. Tushar Deshpande and KM Asif seem to be the ones that will find a place in the eleven.
KKR retained Venkatesh Iyer, Andre Russel, Varun Chakravarthy, and Sunil Narine for IPL 2022 and that is the core of their lineup set. Iyer is going to open the batting, Russel and Narine will play vital all-round roles, and Chakravarthy is an excellent IPL bowler. They have also added Shreyas Iyer to the squad and he is in terrific form. Iyer was the man of the series in the T20 series against the West Indies, scored runs in the Test series against Sri Lanka, and is also the captain of KKR. We could see Nitish Rana, he has played that role in the past, or Ajinkya Rahane or Aaron Finch who has been roped in as a replacement. The bowling lineup will be dependent on Russell and Narine bowling their full quota of overs, though, as once again, the India bowling options seem a bit thin. Umesh Yadav and Shivam Mavi are the possible fast-bowlers that play this match.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. The Wankhede is traditionally an excellent chasing ground and fielding first should be seen as a clear advantage to have.
There is no chance of rain on match day but there is a fair bit of humidity. That could mean we have some dew in the second half that makes chasing easier. The ball should come on nicely to the bat and there will be plenty of sixes/fours being hit.
