The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) is set to return to India. The opening fixture will be played on March 26th between IPL 2021 finalists Chennai Super Kings & Kolkata Knight Riders at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. 

T20 is popularly a batter dominated format, and a good batting performance more often than not ends up in a winning outcome for the team. While chasing a huge target, the batters' role becomes more crucial and they have to plan out their innings to achieve the target for their team.
