Match 62 - Prediction of the Game


Chennai and Gujarat will be up against one another in match number 62 of IPL 2022. It has been a contrasting season for both of these teams. While defending champions Chennai have been eliminated from the race to the Playoffs after their defeat against Mumbai in their last match, Gujarat are the only team so far to have confirmed their berth in the Playoffs.

Both sides are set to meet at the Wankhede Stadium and before their face-off, here is what numbers suggest might happen in the fixture.

1. Toss Prediction

Chennai have won 4 out of their 12 tosses in IPL 2022. By contrast, Gujarat have won 8 tosses. So based on that stat, Gujarat should win this toss.

2. Win Possibility

Given how the tournament has progressed so far and the form of both the teams, one would have to pick Gujarat as the team with a better chance of winning. Gujarat have a 75 per cent winning rate this season, having won 9 out of 12 matches. On the other hand, Chennai have won 4 out of 12 matches which means a 33.33 win percentage. Even in their most recent fixtures, Gujarat registered a win while Chennai lost.

In addition, in their meet earlier in the season too it was Gujarat who tasted a win.

3. Team of the Day

The team of the day is Gujarat who would want to continue their great form heading into the business end of the tournament after a clinical run so far.

4. Powerplay Score

The average powerplay score in IPL 2022 has been around 45. Chennai have really been unpredictable with their scores with a lot depending on the start from their top-order. So based on their inconsistent starts, predicting Chennai to score less than 45 in the first six overs. Gujarat, meanwhile, should be able to score over 45 in the first six overs.

5. Average first innings and second innings score

168.25 is the average first innings score in IPL 2022. The average second innings score, by contrast, is 160.75.
