If Harshal Patel can conjure another hat-trick of wickets for RCB, fans will be delighted. And how RCB snatched their new captain Faf du Plessis in the 2022 auction was the key move in this year's campaign.

The Mumbai Indians have been in a slump as they are on a 2-game losing streak. However, they are notorious for losing a few of their first matches only to bag winning streaks in the matches to come. So, expect a nail-biting game in this particular match as both teams have a very decent line-up in their arsenal. 

Overall though, we think RCB will edge it. 

MI vs RCB Predictions 2022 

Faf du Plessis and co. are a motivated lot this season. They had beaten the last year’s runner up Kolkata Knight Riders. Bear in mind that KKR are one of the favoured contenders in the league this season, and RCB beat them without Glenn Maxwell in that RCB vs KKR match.
