RCB vs MI IPL 2022, 18th Match Preview:

Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns with Mumbai Indians in the 18th match of the Indian Premier League, 2022 at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune on Saturday.

After losing their first game despite scoring 205, RCB has bounced back with successive wins. In both the games, their top-order flopped but the middle and lower middle-order came to their rescue. RCB’s bowling has looked good too in the last couple of games.

On the other hand, MI has lost three games on the trot. They’ve lost two games while defending 160+ targets and they couldn’t chase down 194. MI’s bowling seems to lack bite while the batting has been inconsistent. Thus, they will be desperate to bounce back strongly.

Virat Kohli seems to be hitting the ball well and has got a couple of solid starts. The former RCB skipper has accumulated 58 runs at a strike rate of 138.09.

Faf du Plessis has been in top form with the bat. The RCB skipper has accumulated 122 runs in three innings while striking at 150.61. Thus, he will be a big captaincy pick.

Glenn Maxwell is all set to play his first match of this 2022 edition. The Australian all-rounder had a stellar run in the IPL 2021 where he smashed 513 runs at a strike rate of 144.10. Hence, he could be a key pick.

Wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik is still going strong at the highest level. He smashed a quick-fire 23-ball 44 in the last match against RR. He will look to do well against his former franchise.

Wanindu Hasaranga could be an effective choice as vice-captain. The leg-spinning all-rounder has taken six wickets in three games and has an economy rate of 7.66. Plus, he can be quite handy with the bat.

Harshal Patel is in very good form with the ball. He has returned with four scalps in three games and has an economy rate of 5.41. He can be useful with the bat as well lower the order.

Mohammed Siraj is a good budget pick. He has scalped three wickets from three matches until now.

MI

Rohit Sharma is a very experienced batsman, he has the ability to change the course of the match on his own. He has recorded 1015 runs at an average of 46.14 against KKR in the IPL. He has been in top form and hence, could be the one to watch out for.

Ishan Kishan will be a top captaincy option. The left-hander has been in superb form. He has amassed 149 runs in three innings while striking at 133.03 and has already notched up two half-centuries.

Tilak Varma has been very impressive in the three games that MI has played so far. The 19-year-old left-hander has scored 121 runs at a strike rate of 168.56.

Suryakumar Yadav can be backed as a fantasy vice-captain. The Mumbai-born batter played his first game of this season against KKR and he struck a fine 52 off 36 balls. He has been very consistent for MI in the last few years and hence, he will be a top captaincy option.

Kieron Pollard seems to be striking the ball well. The West Indian all-rounder has got a couple of good starts and has threatened to blast away. Hence, he can be backed to come good.

Murugan Ashwin is the premier spinner for MI. The leg-spinner took 2 wickets from three overs against KKR and he could be the key once again.
