Best Friend Reunite Tomorrow Lucknow vs punjab game # 42



🥰🥰🥰🥰😄😄😍😍❤️❤️

PREVIEW

Best friends reunite as Rahul's Super Giants face off against Agarwal's Punjab Kings
It's the first time the two sides match up in IPL 2022


Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul put up another big stand, Kolkata Knight Riders vs Punjab Kings, IPL 2021,
Dubai, October 1, 2021

Mayank took over as Punjab captain after Rahul left for Lucknow • BCCI

Big picture

For how long do you trust a high-risk process if it doesn't produce high rewards? Punjab Kings face that question as IPL 2022 moves into the second half.

Even before they got up from the auction table in February, it was clear how they would approach the season: Go hard or go home. But with four wins and four losses after eight matches, they are currently in the bottom half of the table.

In the last couple of games, they made tweaks to their XI and approach to find the optimum point where they can operate. Against Delhi Capitals, they picked five frontline bowlers but were bundled out for 115. In their next game, against Chennai Super Kings, despite going back to an allrounder at No. 7, their batters didn't unleash an all-out attack. They teed off but not recklessly - to use a phrase used by the late Shane Warne - and posted a match-winning 187 for 4. Kings' batting consultant Julian Wood has also talked about being "aggressively smart". So is this the approach we will see from them in the upcoming matches?

On Friday, Kings will be up against Lucknow Super Giants, who are currently fourth with ten points from eight games. A side brimming with allrounders, Super Giants are showing there are many ways to ace this format. With the likes of Jason Holder, Marcus Stoinis, Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda in the XI, they have depth in batting as well as bowling.

The main architect of their success, though, has been captain KL Rahul. With 368 runs, Rahul is the second-highest run-getter this season. More importantly, those runs have come at a strike rate of 147.79. Quinton de Kock, Super Giants' next best batter, is 143 runs behind, which also shows Rahul alone has been doing the hard yards - something that could come to haunt him against his former team.

In the news

There has been no update on the availability of Avesh Khan, who missed Super Giants' last game with what captain Rahul described as a "small niggle". If fit, Avesh should replace Mohsin Khan in the XI.

Likely XIs

Lucknow Super Giants 1 KL Rahul (capt), 2 Quinton de Kock (wk), 3 Manish Pandey, 4 Marcus Stoinis, 5 Deepak Hooda, 6 Krunal Pandya, 7 Ayush Badoni, 8 Jason Holder, 9 Dushmantha Chameera, 10 Ravi Bishnoi, 11 Avesh Khan/Mohsin Khan

Punjab Kings 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 Mayank Agarwal (capt), 3 Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 4 Liam Livingstone, 5 Jonny Bairstow, 6 Jitesh Sharma (wk), 7 Rishi Dhawan, 8 Kagiso Rabada, 9 Rahul Chahar, 10 Arshdeep Singh, 11 Sandeep Sharma

Strategy punts


If Kings want someone to play more of an anchor's role, Shikhar Dhawan could be that batter. Super Giants, though, can counter that move somewhat with Dushmantha Chameera. Chameera has dismissed Shikhar twice in 25 balls while conceding only 30 runs.

In the middle overs, Super Giants can keep Shikhar quiet by pairing him against Pandya. Even though Pandya turns the ball in to Dhawan, the batter has managed only 29 runs off 26 balls against him. On the other hand, Shikhar has taken Ravi Bishnoi, a legspinner who mostly bowls sliders and googlies, for 36 runs off 19 balls. Neither spinner, though, has dismissed him so far in T20 cricket.

Manish Pandey has been struggling for runs. In six innings this season, he has scored only 88 runs at a strike rate of 110. Super Giants have a couple of options in front of them. They can replace him with Manan Vohra, who can bat at No. 3. Or they can even bring in K Gowtham and move Ayush Badoni up the order.

Stats that matter


😍Rahul is one of only three batters to have struck at more than 145 against both pace and spin (minimum 100 runs against each type). Jos Buttler and David Miller are the other two.

😍Against Kagiso Rabada, de Kock has scored 89 runs off 61 balls without any dismissal, but Arshdeep Singh has got him out twice in 14 balls while giving away only 14 runs.

😍Among those who have bowled at least five death overs this season, Arshdeep has the best economy (5.66).


😍Rahul has scored only 36 runs off 35 balls against Rahul Chahar with one dismissal but Stoinis has taken the legspinner apart, plundering 32 runs off 12 balls without getting out.

Out of eight, Kings have lost seven tosses so far in this season.

Gujarat Titans vs RCB
Game 43 at 3.30

PREVIEW

Titans look to extend dream run against low-on-confidence Royal Challengers
Kohli, du Plessis and Maxwell must play a big role in turning Royal Challengers' fortunes around in what is the first meeting between the two sides

Gujarat Titans have managed to win from improbable situations this season • BCCI

Big picture

Looking at their team composition after the IPL auction in 2018, Chennai Super Kings were dubbed "Dad's Army", few gave them a chance of making the playoffs, let alone winning the title. But that's just what they went and did.

After the mega auction earlier this year, despite having a clean slate to build a team, Gujarat Titans seemed to have messed it up, looking, on paper at least, thin on resources. But eight games down, they have seven wins and sit pretty at the top of the points table.

So far, Titans have had a different player starring and winning the Player-of-the-Match award in six of their seven wins. Mohammed Shami, Lockie Ferguson, Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, David Miller and Rashid Khan have all played these starring roles, with Sunrisers Hyderabad's Umran Malik bagging the honour for his five-wicket haul in the previous game despite Titans winning the match. While it makes for pretty reading, Titans would know that they need regular contributions from the top order, too, something that hasn't happened as consistently.

Wriddhiman Saha, who replaced Matthew Wade at the top, gave them a quick start in their tall chase against Sunrisers to set up the game. However, Gill's blade has gone quiet after the first three matches, where he scored 180 runs at a strike rate of 166.66.

With their lower-middle order making up for it, though, Titans will back themselves to beat low-on-confidence Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturda

To say Royal Challengers' batting is a worry will be an understatement. Despite having names like Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell, their top four have a combined average of 21.90, the second-poorest in the tournament after Kolkata Knight Riders' 20.90. While Kohli's form has had opinions from left, right and centre, du Plessis' dry run has gone a little under the radar, but is equally worrying for the team. Whenever du Plessis scores over 30 in an IPL match, his team wins more often than not and he has passed that mark only twice this season.

This has resulted in Maxwell coming in too early for his liking - four times in the powerplay. But against Shami, Ferguson and Rashid, the Royal Challengers trio has a favourable match-up and the team would look to use that as a catalyst for a turn in fortunes.

Likely XIs

Gujarat Titans: 1 Shubman Gill, 2 Wriddhiman Saha (wk), 3 Hardik Pandya (capt), 4 David Miller, 5 Rahul Tewatia, 6 Abhinav Manohar, 7 Rashid Khan, 8 Alzarri Joseph, 9 Lockie Ferguson, 10 Mohammed Shami, 11 Yash Dayal

Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1 Faf du Plessis (capt), 2 Virat Kohli, 3 Rajat Patidar, 4 Glenn Maxwell, 5 Shahbaz Ahmed, 6 Suyash Prabhudessai/Mahipal Lomror, 7 Dinesh Karthik (wk), 8 Wanindu Hasaranga, 9 Harshal Patel, 10 Mohammed Siraj, 11 Josh Hazlewood

Bishop: Kohli is central to all of RCB's batting plans

Strategy punt


Ferguson has picked up six wickets in the six overs he has bowled in the powerplay this season, with an early wicket often setting him up for a successful spell in the match. But he is yet to dismiss any of du Plessis, Kohli and Maxwell in T20s. Given all three batters are struggling a bit, it could be time for Ferguson to set the record straight.

Conversely, if Maxwell can be there when Rashid comes into the attack, Royal Challengers are likely to benefit. For Maxwell has the best average against spinners this season and hits a boundary every 2.8 balls against them. Moreover, against Rashid, the lone frontline spinner in Titans' line-up, he averages 68.

Stats that matter


❤️Rashid has hit seven sixes in 36 balls in this IPL, a six every 5.1 balls. Among batters who have faced at least 30 balls, no one has a better rate.

❤️Kohli has the fourth-lowest average (18.28) for any player who has played at least eight innings this season. Five times he has been dismissed in single digits, the joint-most such dismissals in IPL 2022.

❤️Pandya will make his 100th IPL appearance while Ferguson will play his 100th T20 match.

More stats cricbuzz

❤️RCB's last fixture at Brabourne, they folded for 68 - the lowest total of IPL 2022 so far.

- ❤️GT have won four run chases in the last over, two of them off the last ball. Only CSK in the 2012 season won more matches off the last ball of a run chase more often in a single edition - three - than GT's two this season.

Game 44 MI vs RR

April 30th today Rohit's Birthday

:hbd: :hbd: :dance2: :hbd: :hbd: :hbd: :hbd: :hbd: :dance2: :hbd:

Cricbuzz

RR aim to pile on MI's misery
April 29 2022

The last time these two sides met, Buttler hit a 68-ball century

Mumbai Indians are on the cusp of a statistical ignominy. Eight losses is the most they've had in a single edition of the IPL. Traditionally slow starters, they've still managed to win silverware five times, and have never lost more than eight games in a single season before. This time, they're there already with six games to go. Although they're as good as out of the reckoning for a top-four finish, they're one defeat away from equaling the longest losing sequence for any team in an IPL season. In their quest to avoid both this sequence and a team record of ninth loss in a season, they first go up against Rajasthan Royals, who arrive with three wins on the trot.

It's also a special occasion for RR, who will be commemorating and celebrating the illustrious career of the "first Royal" - as they call him - Shane Warne. They will have special kits for the clash against MI with 'SW23' on their collars.

A common factor between both these sides has been playing five specialist bowlers, even if it came at the cost of batting depth. Neither boasted of a long tail, but it didn't hurt RR as much, given their top order's repeated exploits led by Jos Buttler, the orange cap bearer. In stark contrast, MI's batting order just hasn't clicked, minus Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Varma's consistent scores. Ishan Kishan, who was bought at a whopping 15.25 crores - the second-highest ever for an Indian player in an IPL auction - has looked ordinary alongside Rohit Sharma.

If Buttler's sensational season is not enough, he also boasts great head-to-head numbers against his former franchise. The last time the sides played at the same venue, Buttler smashed a 68-ball 100. He has scored 400 runs in 6 innings against MI since 2018, with three half-centuries and a ton. Despite Buttler shouldering the weight of RR's batting so far this season, his failure against RCB put the onus on the middle-order. Riyan Parag admirably stepped up and delivered at a time when his place in the XI had started to come under some level of scrutiny. Before his match-winning 56 off 31 against RCB, he had just 48 runs in five innings.

Apart from their batting inconsistency, MI have death overs worries too, with Jaydev Unadkat having the worst economy rate in the death among the 32 bowlers with at least 25 overs in the phase between 16 and 20 of 12.17. Their overseas imports Tymal Mills and Daniel Sams have failed to contain runs too, which has been another area MI are falling short. "The season hasn't gone the way we would have wanted it to, but such things happen," said a dejected Rohit Sharma after their last loss to LSG. They have a tough mountain in RR to climb for their first win, but they'd like to think the only way from here is upwards - even if just for pride.

When: Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians, Saturday, April 30 at 7:30 PM IST

Where: Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai

Head-to-head: RR 12-13 MI. Since 2018, however, RR have won 6 out of 9 games - their win % of 66.67 is the highest for any team against the five time champions.

What to expect:The wicket at the DY Patil Stadium has an average first-innings total of close to 170 in the last five fixtures. The chasing side has won only two of those as the agri-spray used on the ground has negated the onset of dew successfully.

Team Watch

Rajasthan Royals

Tactics and Matchups: Ashwin and Chahal could be held back a tad bit for their match-ups against Pollard - with both having accounted for the all-rounder five times each. Pollard averages just 15 and 16.60 against both respectively.

Probable XI: Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Daryl Mitchell, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Kuldeep Sen, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal

Mumbai Indians

Tactics and Matchups: Bumrah upfront is MI's best bet to contain Buttler's onslaught, who averages just 12.25 against the MI pacer with four dismissals. He has also kept Devdutt Padikkal and skipper Samson quiet. Padikkal has been dismissed twice in 18 balls by Bumrah.

Probable XI:Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Hrithik Shokeen, Daniel Sams, Jaydev Unadkat, Riley Meredith, Jasprit Bumrah

Did you know?

❤️- MI is one defeat away from equaling the longest losing sequence for an IPL season.

-❤️ In 22 matches between 2021-22, MI have lost 15 and won just 7 games, with a win % of 31.82.

-❤️ Sanju Samson has lost the toss in seven of the eight matches but ended up winning six of those, all batting first. They only match he won the toss, RR chased and lost.

DC vs LSG


PREVIEW
Capitals and Super Giants seek consistency to escape mid-table logjam

Both teams face off with inconsistent middle orders in focus

Has Rishabh Pant managed his bowling resources well?

Big picture

Six games to go out of 14 may sound like a lot, but not when you are placed sixth in a mid-table logjam, with five teams above jostling to confirm a top-four finish, and two others below you breathing down your neck. Delhi Capitals' rollercoaster lose-one-win-one ride has been on for six games now, and they will be looking for some consistency at this stage.

Hit by Covid-19 and then a needless no-ball-that-never-happened controversy, they can still be buoyed by Kuldeep Yadav's resurgence, Mitchell Marsh's brief spark on return from quarantine, and their effective pace battery, led by Mustafizur Rahman and Khaleel Ahmed.

Although Khaleel missed Capitals' last match due to a hamstring injury, the emerging Chetan Sakariya - another left-armer in their ranks - answered the call with three economical overs, which included the wicket of Aaron Finch off his third ball.

But what of Capitals' batting? Openers David Warner and Prithvi Shaw aside, their line-up hasn't offered much encouragement. Rishabh Pant has occasionally flickered, but not lit up the show yet; Lalit Yadav's form has faded away after a bright start; Rovman Powell has got respectable scores in only the last two matches; and Sarfaraz Khan has been in and out of the side.

Despite four losses in eight matches, Capitals boast of the best net run rate among all teams. But that will count for little if they can't pocket vital points. To summarise it all, only four playoffs spots are up for grabs, and eight teams - nine, if you are a Chennai Super Kings fan - are still in the running, a reality which Capitals cannot shy away from.

Against this background they face Lucknow Super Giants, who will be eyeing a hat-trick of wins. A line-up filled with allrounders - two pace-bowling in Jason Holder and Marcus Stoinis, one left-arm spin-bowling in Krunal Pandya, and an offspin-bowling one in Deepak Hooda - Super Giants, on form, appear to have one foot inside the playoffs door already.

Like Capitals, they have had star performers with the ball, the latest of which is the left-arm quick Mohsin Khan. Ravi Bishnoi hasn't been consistent - although he has seven wickets, he averages 41 with an economy rate of 8.22 - but that hasn't troubled his colleagues. Dushmantha Chameera has zipped through with rapid pace, Holder and Avesh Khan have been among the wickets despite being expensive, and now even Pandya has found his bowling rhythm.

But, while having a plethora of allrounders has provided them with depth and multiple options, their middle order - like Capitals' - hasn't been at its best. Only captain KL Rahul and his opening partner Quinton de Kock have been regularly churning out runs for Super Giants.

In their last five matches, their bowlers have successfully defended totals three times - two of which were only 153 and 169 - while they have lost batting second twice in a row. With not much time left, Super Giants, like Capitals, will be eyeing better consistency.

In the news
Khaleel was forced to sit out Capitals' previous game against Kolkata Knight Riders, with no official word on his availability since. If Khaleel is fit to return, Sakariya's impressive performance on his Capitals debut may cause some dilemma for them.

Likely XIs
Delhi Capitals: 1 Prithvi Shaw, 2 David Warner, 3 Rishabh Pant (capt, wk), 4 Mitchell Marsh, 5 Lalit Yadav, 6 Axar Patel, 7 Rovman Powell, 8 Shardul Thakur, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Mustafizur Rahman, 11 Khaleel Ahmed/Chetan Sakariya

Lucknow Super Giants: 1 KL Rahul (capt), 2 Quinton de Kock (wk), 3 Marcus Stoinis, 4 Krunal Pandya, 5 Deepak Hooda, 6 Ayush Badoni/Manish Pandey, 7 Jason Holder, 8 Dushmantha Chameera, 9 Ravi Bishnoi, 10 Mohsin Khan, 11 Avesh Khan

Ravi Bishnoi dismissed David Warner for the third time in three meetings, Lucknow Super Giants vs Delhi Capitals, IPL 2022, Navi Mumbai, April 7, 2022

Ravi Bishnoi has got the wood over David Warner in T20s•BCCI
Strategy punt

Warner and Bishnoi have been in contrasting form for their respective sides, but give the new ball to the legspinner against the opener in T20s, and you can expect the batter to be in trouble. Bishnoi, who bowls several wrong 'uns, has dismissed Warner each of the three times they have met. Moreover, those three wickets have come in only six balls.

Warner's opening partner Shaw has also faced only nine deliveries of Bishnoi in the format, although he has taken him for 14 without getting out.

de Kock has bashed all of Mustafizur, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur in T20s. With a strike rate of 161, 160 and 147 against them respectively, he has been dismissed only once each by Axar in eight innings and Thakur in five. With de Kock in fine form already, expect another quick start from him in the powerplay.

But Capitals have two options to keep him quiet. If they retain Sakariya, he can possibly help keep de Kock in check, having conceded only 13 runs off 11 balls to him. Plus, there is the confident Kuldeep, with the left-arm wristspinner having got de Kock twice in 14 balls while conceding 20 runs.

Stats that matter

#Pant has fallen to pace each of the six times he has been dismissed this season, despite a strike rate of 154 in 56 balls against it, as against not getting out to 71 deliveries of spin bowling.

#Super Giants have tried out four batters at No. 3, with Manish Pandey's four innings being the most at the #spot for them.

The last time Kuldeep had taken as many as 17 wickets in an IPL season was in 2018, when he represented Kolkata Knight Riders.

#Hooda has come out to bat four times in the first five overs this season, and has hit two half-centuries

PREVIEW

Burgeoning pace stocks make Sunrisers favourites against bruised CSK

The defending champions are hanging by a thread in the race for the playoffs and one more defeat could all but end their season

Should Sunrisers use Washington Sundar in the powerplay?

Big picture

A mix of youth and experience has taken Sunrisers Hyderabad forward, as they now have five wins from eight matches, after early jitters this season. Up against a struggling Chennai Super Kings in the southern derby at MCA Stadium on Sunday, Sunrisers begin favourites as they look to remain in the top four.

In Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, Marco Jansen, and T Natarajan, Sunrisers possess one of the most dangerous pace attacks in this IPL, with Washington Sundar taking the lone specialist spinner's spot. These pacers have alone accounted for 45 of the 57 wickets taken by the team this edition, with Natarajan and Malik scalping 15 wickets each. It shouldn't be a surprise that they boast the best bowling average this IPL.

As far as batting is concerned, unlike the last few seasons, there is no power-hitter like Jonny Bairstow or David Warner at the top of the order. However, the likes of Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, and Abhishek Sharma have lifted Sunrisers' batting. Only captain Kane Williamson's underwhelming batting form would be a bit of concern moving into the second half of the tournament - he has scored a total of 148 runs from eight matches so far, averaging just 21.14.

On the other side are Super Kings, grappling with injuries to key players - Moeen Ali was the last entrant to this list after they lost pacers Deepak Chahar and Adam Milne - and team balance. With two victories from eight matches, they are placed second from the bottom and are hanging by a thread in the playoff qualification race.

In the batting department, with opener Ruturaj Gaikwad struggling to get going, Super Kings need the likes of Shivam Dube and Robin Uthappa to get back to their best. In the first five matches, both batters had scored two half-centuries each and had scored 401 runs between them. Contrastingly, in the last three matches, Dube and Uthappa made a total of 40 and 34 runs, respectively. Despite boasting batting depth, Super Kings would need someone to stay long in the innings and not just rely on MS Dhoni for fireworks at the end if they are to climb up the ladder.

To their relief, Super Kings have improved their bowling in the powerplay. After picking up just two powerplay wickets in the first four matches, left-arm pacer Mukesh Choudhary and Sri Lankan spinner Maheesh Theekshana took five wickets apiece in this phase in the last four matches. Dwayne Bravo leads the attack with 14 wickets from eight matches. However, the bowling unit, collectively, needs to be consistent and economical - barring Mitchell Santner and Theekshana, the rest of the bowlers have conceded at more than eight runs per over - for a miraculous turnaround.

With Dhoni back as captain, will the sun rise for Super Kings in the second half of the IPL 2022?

Strategy punt

Dhoni has enjoyed great success against fast bowlers this edition, scoring 109 runs from 67 balls at a strike rate of 163. Against a pace-packed Sunrisers, the wicketkeeper will be key in overcoming the threat that their bowlers pose. In the IPL, Dhoni has particularly targeted Bhuvneshwar, having hit 94 runs at a strike rate of 165 in 11 innings, without getting dismissed.

Stats that matter

#Among batters to have scored a minimum of 50 runs, Gaikwad (12.8) and Williamson (15.8) have the worst and fourth-worst batting average this IPL.

#Dhoni averages 53.3 against Sunrisers in the IPL.

#Aiden Markram has crossed the 40-run mark in four out of the six innings this season.
