Team News

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians are coming into the game after two straight losses. They will be desperate to register a victory in their first home game of the season but few players have to step up to make it possible. Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma both provided MI with a perfect start in the last game. Naman Dhir is also scoring runs, batting at no 3. Tilak Varma played a sensational knock against SRH and would be hoping to repeat it against RR.

Tim David also found his last season form back and played a good knock at Hyderabad. The only worrying sign is Hardik Pandya's captaincy and performance. He hasn't delivered in the last two games. Lots of decisions have gone wrong and the early signs are not looking good. But knowing Mumbai, they will somehow find a way to make a comeback.

Jasprit Bumrah has been incredible so far and he is in his prime right now. Maphaka proved so expensive against SRH and will have to make a strong comeback if Mumbai give him another chance. Coetzee didn't have a good time too but he was brilliant in the last game, and the fans have seen him perform consistently well in the World Cup so the Mumbai fans have to trust him at this point. The spin could be a huge issue for the five-time champions as they don't have many options in that area.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals can climb up to the top if they manage to beat Mumbai Indians at their den. The inaugural edition champions have dominantly started this season, winning both games comfortably. Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal failed to perform in the last game but Riyan Parag has already announced that it is going to be a redemption season for him, scoring runs in both games. Dhruv Jurel and Shimron Hetmyer have to take some responsibilities upon them otherwise it will be difficult to defeat Mumbai at their home. Sanju Samson couldn't score big in the last game but he will be more focused this time, leading his side from the front.

Trent Boult and Nandre Burger will lead the bowling unit with Avesh Khan and Sandeep Sharma to bowl the death overs. Avesh Khan has been brilliant in the first two games, consistently bowling strictly in the death overs. On the other side, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin will attack with their spin as Rajasthan Royals are looking very stable this season. It will be a tough match for the hosts and RR are set to try their best, maintaing the winning streak.
