IPL 2022 LIVE: Five reasons why Rajasthan Royals will win against Mumbai Indians

1. Jos Buttler – The Man with “Orange Cap”

The English opener is scoring runs consistently this season. He is at the top of the run-scorers for the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League. And the way he is batting, it is looking like the record of Virat Kohli for most runs in one season, will also be broken. He has already won a few matches on his own.

That is why he is the vital wicket for the opposition because if he gets set, then no bowler can take a rest. Buttler has scored 499 runs in eight matches so far at an average and strike rate of 71.28 and 159.42, including three centuries. 

2. Duo of Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson

Jos Buttler plays freely because he knows that two other batters are there, who are also scoring runs. Opener Devdutt Padikkal and skipper Sanju Samson are also playing their roles quite brilliantly. Samson has scored 228 runs so far at an average and strike rate of 32.57 and 165.21, respectively.

Padikkal has also assisted Buttler at the top. In the eight matches he has played, the left-hander has scored 199 runs at a strike rate of 128.38. Both batters score at a quick pace, and that makes the RR top-order stronger.  

3. The combo of Hetmyer and Riyan Parag

RR are not winning on the basis of their top-order only. However, they have got a couple of power-hitters at the bottom. Shimron Hetmyer is a proven finisher in the IPL. The left-hander is scoring runs for the RR as well, coming down the order and that too at a rapid pace. He has scored 227 runs at an incredible strike rate of 171.96.

Many questioned the place of Riyan Parag in the team. In the end, he proved why his team trusted the all-rounder. Riyan scored runs when every other batter failed. In the last match against RCB, he was the lone savior. He scored 56* to help his team post a winning total.

4. Winning momentum

There is no doubt that momentum is a big thing in any sport. And having winning momentum always makes you feel confident. That’s what RR is feeling right now. They are winning matches in difficult situations as well, which they showed in the last match.

RR defended a low total of 145 runs against a strong RCB batting line-up and won the match by 29 runs. As it says, “when you are winning, everything goes your way.” That is the mantra of Rajasthan, and against an underconfident MI team, they might look for another win.

5. A variety in the bowling department

It is not just Buttler that is winning them the match; they have got another player who is breaking records after records. Yuzvendra Chahal is the current “Purple Cap” holder for this season. The veteran leg-spinner has taken 18 wickets so far, including a hat-trick and a five-wicket haul. 

Then RR has got Prasidh Krishna (10 wickets), Ashwin (7 wickets), and Trent Boult (7 wickets). They also got Obed McCoy and K Sen as other options. And all bowlers are different from each other. That makes RR bowling one of the best in the tournament. So it will be very difficult to get through this bowling line-up.
