The 13th match of the IPL 2022 will be played today at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Yuzvendra Chahal and Devdutt Padikkal, who both played for RCB until last season, will face their former teammates for the first time. Wasim Jaffer has also made a humorous tweet about it.

maxi will be back.
Glenn Maxwell could also make a comeback in today’s match for Bangalore. He is now a member of the group. Maxwell married Vini Raman a few days ago, and as a result, he will miss the rest of the IPL season.
Chahal will not be taken lightly by the RCB.
Chahal stated in his statement that money was not a concern for him and that he wished to remain with RCB, but no one approached him about it. Chahal, who has taken five wickets in both matches so far, could be a handful for RCB.
Bangalore leads the head-to-head, with a clash on batting-friendly wickets.
There have been a total of 25 matches between RR and RCB so far. Rajasthan has won ten times, while Bangalore has won twelve times. The outcome of three matches could not be determined. Rajasthan has the highest innings total of 217 runs and the lowest total of 58 against Bengaluru. Against Rajasthan, Bengaluru scored the highest 200 and the lowest 70 runs.
Wankhede is known for being a batsman’s dream. This simply means that there will be a high-scoring match today. The fast bowlers will undoubtedly receive some assistance early in the innings, but once they have settled in, the batsmen can play their shots freely. The Due factor will almost certainly play a significant role. The teams would prefer to bowl first in such a situation if they won the toss.
Despite losing the toss, Rajasthan is winning the match.
Rajasthan Royals have made a strong start to the current IPL season. The main reason for this is that during the auction, the team management targeted the selected players based on their needs and was successful in bringing them together.
Sanju Samson and his teammates have played two matches in the IPL 2022 and have won both. RR lost both tosses and was forced to bat first in a difficult situation in both matches. In front of Hyderabad, RR’s batting order set a target of 211 and 194 in front of Mumbai. After that, a strong batsman like Kieron Pollard was forced to play Test innings due to excellent bowling.
Trent Boult, the legendary Krishna, and Navdeep Saini’s pace attack are defusing the batsmen. The batsmen are being intimidated by the fear of off-spinner R Ashwin and leg-spinner Chahal. When Tilak Verma hit Ashwin for a six in the match against Mumbai, he bowled him on the next ball.
Following that, Ashwin’s aggressive celebration revealed the new Rajasthan Royals. For the first time since Season One, RR was ranked among the top teams in the tournament after making the correct team pick in the auction.
Bengaluru has had a sour and sweet IPL season so far.
RCB’s season has had a lot of ups and downs so far. Despite PBKS scoring a mammoth 205 for the loss of only two wickets in their first match, RCB were thrashed by 5 wickets. Looking back at the IPL’s history, this team had an army of big hitters like Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, and AB de Villiers, but the bowling has drowned every season.
Bengaluru lost the match after losing the toss in the first match. RCB won the second match after winning the toss and bowling according to the situation. This necessitates immediate action. It is not necessary for the coin to fall in your favour every time. If the Bangalore team is to end its 14-year wait for an IPL victory, it will have to bowl and bat well in all conditions. It’ll be interesting to see what strategy the team’s new captain, Faf, uses to get them to the play-offs.
