Coming after a defeat against SRH, Rajasthan Royals will be looking to win this game to stay alive on the route to playoffs. Losing this game leads to closure of paths to qualify for the knockout rounds. The Rajasthan team has so many match-winner in their line-up, but they haven’t lived up to their potential. Butler, Stokes, Smith and Archer can individually win games for RR on their day. Adding to this, the in-form Tewatia and Parag are looking to reduce the pressure on the top-order batsmen and are also consistent in their performance. The bowling department looks strong with Archer leading the attack with Tyagi and Gopal providing good support along with all-rounders. RR will be looking to put on a solid performance and gain 2 points on board against MI in this encounter.
Possible – 11
Jos Buttler (WK), Robin Uthappa, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith (C), Ben Stokes, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Mayank Markhande, Jaydev Unadkat.
After crushing CSK in a 10-wicket win, Mumbai Indians will be looking to continue their dominating performance against Rajasthan Royals in this game. Also, Abu Dhabi has provided enough assistance to the MI team in this IPL season. The presence of Rohit Sharma in the playing-11 is still a doubt for this clash too. Rohit, Quinny, Pollard, Ishan, Hardik and Surya has played solid knocks with the bat, and Boult, Bumrah, Pattinson, Nile, Chahar and Krunal has struck regularly with the ball. With the most settled team combination and every player rising up at the required occasion as match-winner, the MI team looks very intimidating. Though they have set one foot into the playoffs, MI needs one more win to seal their spot. Mumbai Indians will be looking to gain 2 points against the Rajasthan Royals side in this encounter.
Possible – 11
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieran Pollard, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
RR will be looking to play an all-out attack against MI to stay alive in the playoffs. But, MI wouldn’t be scared of the threat RR will pose to them as Mumbai Indians have enough arsenal in their cavalry to overpower the Rajasthan Royals. MI will comfortably win this clash to seal their playoff spot.
Mumbai Indians has an edge in this interesting clash.
