The 68th match of the ongoing 15th season of the Indian Premier League will be played at Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings.
A win for the RR today would not only guarantee them a playoff spot, but also a top-two finish in the points table.
CSK, on the other hand, has nothing to lose because the remaining teams in the competition have already shown them the exit route.
Royals will be boosted by the inclusion of their star batter Shimron Hetmyer, while CSK may make a few changes to their squad given that this is their final IPL 2022 match.
The defending IPL 2021 champions have had a nightmare season and come here after a crushing defeat to the Gujarat Titans in their last game.
Rajasthan Royals on the other hand defeated the Lucknow Super Giants in the last game and have moved to the 2nd place on the points table.
TATA IPL 2022: CSK has struggled as a team, winning only four of the 13 games it has played this season.
Yuzvendra Chahal of the Rajasthan Royals is the leading wicket-taker this season, with 24 wickets.
Chennai Super Kings openers Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have struggled for consistency, which has hampered the team's performance.
MS Dhoni and Mitchell Santner will have to do the heavy lifting towards the end of the innings.
Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler has been the tournament's best batsman, and he will look to establish a good opening wicket stand with Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Sanju Samson has stood like a rock in the middle order, and he would look to anchor the innings with Devdutt Padikkal and Riyan Parag.
Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna did well with the new ball in the last game, which is good news for the team because they had previously struggled.
The surface at Brabourne is very good for batting with short boundaries and quick outfield. Dew might not play a big role but both teams will ideally prefer chasing.
