IPL 2022 Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians match prediction for Today’s IPL match: RR Vs MI– 30th of April at 07:30 PM local time.

Match Preview

It’s the meeting of 2 old IPL franchises with a long head-to-head history. One of the teams is an outsider now, but they historically beat the favourite in 50% of cases. Who will win in the Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians Match in the 2022 season? And what do we know today, a week before the event?

So, Rajasthan Royals now sit in the 3rd place. The team played 6 matches, 4 wins and 2 losses. They lost to RCB and GT, the #1 and #2 franchises in the IPL table.

Mumbai Indians look very sad; for now, they still have no wins, only losses in 6 recent IPL matches. Though they always fight like tigers, almost every event is a nail-biter.

The first match between these 2 teams in the current season was on the 2nd of April at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai venue. The results are:

  • Mumbai Indians – 170/8 (20.0/20)
  • Rajasthan Royals (W) – 193/8 (20.0/20)

Mumbai’s Kishan and Varma were great and even got a chance after the inn break. But they couldn’t help the team win because MI’s David and Sams lost their wickets, so one effort didn’t work. And Rajasthan had great players like Jos Buttler and a duo of Ashwin – Chahal. RR has shown an excellent bowling performance.

What should we expect from the second meeting on the 30th of April? Let’s analyse what we know.

Match Info, Pitch Report 2022

The Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians Match #44 will be again at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai, on the 30th of April (07:30 PM local time).

The Dr DY Patil Sports Academy venue, founded in 2007, hosted 28 IPL events. By the way, it’s the first season for the platform after 2011.

The pitch often helps bowlers by giving a bounce. Also, the red soil field wears more as matches happen, so the spinners now make the play. They can benefit from the wicket slowness.

The venue has hosted 11 IPL 2022 events by now. Six of them were won by wickets, 5 won by runs. So we can’t say that the team batting first or chasing has more benefits.

RR played there 4 times, 2 times won and also twice lost. As we mentioned earlier, they won over MI (by 23 runs) at the venue in the first 2022 match.

Mumbai played there 8 times, 5 times won, so they know the pitch better. Though all triumphs happened in the 2008-2011 seasons, MI didn’t show a win yet in 2022.

The weather report: as usually, sunny and humid. It promises to be 30°C in the evening, with 73% humidity. The wind will be 22Km/h, SW direction.

So we can say that: the team winning the toss will likely choose bowling first because of the dew factor. That factor will make it somewhat challenging to grip the ball because of the moisture. Though, Navi Mumbai usually has lower humidity than Mumbai. So we can suppose the dew won’t be a big problem.

Trent Boult

RR vs MI Match Prediction

For now, we believe that Rajasthan Royals will win in that match. RR had seasons in their history when they won twice over MI (like in 2011, 2018, and 2019). We think that situation may repeat in the 2022 IPL League.

MI may make an effort to get some points before the end of the tournament, though it’s unlikely. At least, nothing shows that scenery may become real, for now. MI have 8 matches ahead. To qualify for playoffs, get the prize and all, Mumbai need to be at least 4th. So they need to win all 8 games now to get there. Is it possibly? Unlikely.

Old Mumbai fans know that the team has a unique ability: the lower they fall, the higher they rise in the next season. For example, fans remember a case when MI got 7th place in one year and then won 1st place in the next season. Will the same happen in the 2023 season? Well, who knows.

For now, we recommend betting on RR win. Make bets with our prediction and win profits!
