Rajasthan Royals Team Preview

The Rajasthan Royals have only one title to their name from the twelve seasons they have played. With the victory in 2008, it’s now more than 10 years since they have had a taste of success. Perhaps they can invoke the success of the past, as it was at the DY Patil Stadium where they sealed their win. Since 2009, the most successful they have placed was third in 2013, so, they are long overdue some success, and frankly, they are in a good position to reach the Play-Offs. They currently have 14 points from their seven wins, and a positive Net Run Rate of +0.326, which is the second highest currently. The run rate will be of utmost importance as the Play-Offs grow closer. The top of the table is currently very congested and only two points separate the top four teams. This means the run rate will be used as the determining factor for which team grabs a spot, so playing well and finishing with the largest margin as possible is key.

The Royals were successful in their last match, securing a win over the Punjab Kings by 6 wickets and 2 balls left. They managed to chase down the Kings’ total of 189 effectively in 19.4 overs, despite a strong attack from the Kings.

The squad got off to a fantastic flying opening, however the fall of Jos Buttler would have certainly given some confidence to the Kings. In true Buttler fashion, he was gearing up for another great run, however ended with 30 runs off 16 balls. Sanju Samson, the skipper of the Royals, was the next player to be dismissed, and finished with 23 runs off 12 balls. However, Yashasvi Jaiswal kept the momentum up and soared to a half-century with some ease. Jaiswal and Devdutt Paddikal continued with a good stand, before the 20 year old’s dismissal. Jaiswal should be pleased with his effort, in which he was awarded Player of the Match for his brilliant 68 off 41. Shimron Hetmyer also had a good stand with Paddikal after the dismissal of Jaiswal, and the pair took the Royals over the winning finishing line. Hetmyer finished with 31 off 16 -and also had the best strike rate of the squad at 193.75- while Paddikal finished 31 off 32.

On the bowling side, Yuzvendra Chahal grabbed three wickets while conceding 28 runs in his spell, while Ravichandran Ashwin grabbed one while conceding 32 runs. Prasidh Krishna leaked 48 runs but managed to at least take a wicket. Trent Boult got a maiden while conceding 36 runs. Overall, Boult was the most economical bowler at 9.0, while Krishna was the most expensive at 12.0.

Last match in the tournament against the Delhi Capitals secured them win margin by 15 runs with the target of 223. This is their fourth best run margin win, with the number one spot taken by their 61 run margin win against the Sunrisers Hyderabad with the target of 211.

If you are considering online cricket betting for this IPL 2022 match, take a look at these batting and bowling statistics. Of course, for the market of top bowler, Buttler’s name rightly comes to mind. He has scored the most runs in this IPL season (618) and has three of the five highest scores too. Hetmyer is also a good choice as he as a better batting average (72.75) as well as a higher strike rate (166.28) than Buttler (61.80 and 152.21). If we were only to choose one player, Buttler is who we predict will win.

For the top bowler IPL prediction, Chahal has taken the most wickets in the competition (22), has the third best bowling figure (5/40), and the fourth best bowling average (14.50). The most economical bowler of the team goes to Ashwin (7.18) as well as the best bowling average (35.11).

Delhi Capitals Team Preview

In their 14 IPL seasons, the Delhi Capitals have never won a title. They have come close to the win, however, where they fell at the last hurdle in 2020 and claimed their spot as runners-up. In the 2022 tournament, the Capitals are currently in fifth place, with ten points from five wins. Their Net Run Rate is +0.150, which puts them behind the Lucknow Super Giants, and as we mentioned earlier, the Rajasthan Royals.

They have a tough time ahead of them to make the Play-Offs, however, there is still a sliver of a chance for them to make it. While this is promising, the Capitals can’t seem to get any consistency going, and in their last five games flip flop from loss to win to loss, and back again. The Chennai Super Kings managed to get a huge win, in fact, it’s the biggest winning margin in the season so far. Their dominating performance took them to a 91 run victory.

The Capitals were generally below par as a unit, and David Warner (19 off 12) was dismissed early on in the fourth over at 36/2. Mitchell Marsh finished 25 off 20 in the seventh over and skipper Rishabh Pant finished 21 off 11 in the ninth over, and the Capitals side really began to crumble. Apart from Shardul Thakur (24 off 19), the batters dropped like flies. Between Rovman Powell, Ripal Patel, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Anriche Nortje, and Khaleel Ahmed, they only managed to score 16 runs off 28 balls.

Ahmed showed a strong performance out of the bowling unit and was the most economical player at 7.0, finishing 2/28. Nortje managed to grab three wickets but haemorrhaged 42 runs. Marsh also grabbed a wicket while conceding 34 runs. The most expensive player was Yadav who conceded 43 runs in his four overs spell for an economy of 14.33. Overall, it wasn’t the best day for the Capitals bowlers who were under pressure from an aggressive attack from the Chennai Super Kings.

IPL betting sites have a range of available markets, however the most popular are top batsman and top bowler. If you are thinking of cricket betting, these statistics might help you with your match prediction today. Warner has scored 375 runs, which is the fifth best in the 2022 tournament. He’s also scored four 50’s, has a top score of 92 (not out), and the best batting average of the team (53.57). Out of the bowlers, Yadav has one of the best bowling figures (4/14), just above Patel (3/18). Patel has a few more accolades; he has a bowling average of 64.0 and the best bowling economy of the team at 7.52.

Toss Prediction

The five times the Delhi Capitals have won the toss, they have elected to field first. On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals have been incredibly unlucky to have only won the toss once, compared to eight times during the 2021 season at this point in the tournament. In their eleven 2022 games, they chose to field first.

By these statistics alone, we would be fairly confident to say that neither team would stray away from this decision, even though as the tournament progresses, the toss is seeming to have less of a tight grip on influencing the results. However, coupled with the threat of dew forming as the match progresses, our toss prediction will remain with majority of our others.

We think the winning captain will choose to field first if they are lucky enough to win, and will join the 89% of captains to have made this decision in this year’s edition of the competition so far.

Pitch Conditions

Both batters and bowlers should find assistance at the DY Patil Stadium. We have seen some fairly high scoring matches here, with players citing the red-soil pitch is giving bounce and pace assistance. The balance of teams winning while defending or chasing tips slightly into the latter half, which is fairly inline with the other stadiums used for the IPL 2022, apart from the Maharashtra Stadium where interestingly the teams defending their score have won 73% of the time.

We haven’t seen any major changes in temperature in the last week, and the ‘real-feel’ temperate will sit around 43C which is around 10C higher than the predicted temperature. With the humidity at 76%, dew is likely to form during the match. While the amount of dew is different from pitch to pitch, we are expecting to see a fair amount which threatens the bowlers in the second innings.

The Rajasthan Royals have played at this wicket three times this IPL season with scores of 193, 158, and 155 for an average of 168. The average runs scored per six balls for the Royals is 9.65, 7.9, and 7.55 respectively. For the Delhi Capitals, they have only played two games at this location so far. Both scores have been some of their worse in the competition so far at 149 and 177 for an average of 163. The average runs per six balls is 7.9 and 7.75. Going off these statistics, it’s shaping up to be a fairly even game between the two franchises.

Our Betting Tips

The Rajasthan Royals are putting on some good performances, and when they are in the flow, manage to keep the consistency up. The Delhi Capitals manage to have flashes of brilliance, however, fail to sustain any sort of momentum as they move through the tournament. When they flip from loss to win, loss to win, it’s difficult to back them wholeheartedly. The Royals have a solid NRR score and come off the back of a deserved win. Therefore, our IPL prediction of who will win this match has to be the Rajasthan Royals.
