After a thrilling first match of IPL 2022 between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders, all eyes will be on the mouth-watering clash between Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant’s teams. Whatever you think is right, the second match is between the five-time champions, Mumbai Indians, and a young side, Delhi Capitals.
