IPL 2022 – Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Match 9 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

As the tournament picks up its pace, we are all getting an idea of how the teams are performing and in match 9 of the Indian Premier League 2022, we have the Mumbai Indians taking on the Rajasthan Royals in a match that holds a lot of importance for both sides.

In their previous match, the Mumbai Indians were narrowly defeated by the Delhi Capitals. Suryakumar Yadav’s return, on the other hand, will significantly strengthen their batting lineup, which appeared to be lacking against the Delhi franchise.

Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, dominated their opening game against Sunrisers Hyderabad and appear to be the side to beat at the moment. They are now at the top of the points table, thanks to their exceptional net run rate and the fact that they have checked off most of the boxes. Nathan Coulter Nile sustained a minor niggle near the conclusion of the game, and he is expected to be replaced in the starting XI by James Neesham.

The match is scheduled to take place on the 2nd of April 2022 at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai.

Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Match 9 – Players to Watch


Suryakumar Yadav


His absence in the first game clearly showed how crucial he is to the balance of the batting attack of the Mumbai Indians. The previous edition of the IPL saw Suryakumar up the ante in terms of consistency and performance to a point where he was one of the retentions prior to the Mega Auction. He is player who is adaptible and his tendency to hit boundaries will be something the Mumbai Indians need, especially in the scenario where they suffer a top order collapse.


Ishan Kishan


He clearly showed the world why the Mumbai Indians went big to retain his services, but if he is cement his reputation in the IPL as well as the national side, Ishan will have to put in these big score performances in every game and help his side emerge victorious. He has been getting a lot more mature in his approach to the game off late and that is definitely a positive. Sachin Tendulkar’s presence in the Mumbai Indians’ dugout will pay dividends if the young wicket-keeper batsman picks a few tricks of the trade from the best of all time.


Jos Buttler


Jos Buttler got off to a fantastic start in this year’s IPL 2022 campaign with a 28-ball 35 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the previous game, but he couldn’t build on it and reach a huge score. In his brief time at the bat, the right-hander hit three sixes and three fours, and he’ll be looking to make an impression against the Mumbai Indians, a team he’s had success against in the past.


Yuzvendra Chahal


Yuzvendra Chahal was one of the standout performers in the triumph over the Sunrisers Hyderabad, taking 3 for 22 in his four-over period and putting the brakes on the opposition’s run chase. Because he has a solid track record against big hitters like Kieron Pollard, the 31-year-old is sure to have a huge impact on the Royals in the forthcoming match. Chahal seemed to have regained his rhythm, which he had lost during the first part of the IPL 2021.
