Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals came face-to-face for the first time in this year’s tournament. Both teams come into the game after two wins and three defeats, although the Mumbai Indians team look much stronger than the Rajasthan Royals who lose at least one player after every match. Read ahead previewing this 2021 IPL clash. The game will start at 15:30 local time and will be played at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium.
After two successive defeats, the Mumbai Indians got the advantage of a six-day break between the fixers after their 9-wicket loss to the Punjab Kings. They will be hoping to make a comeback given their batting shortcomings and their bowlers rested well after starting the campaign impressively.
Rajasthan Royals won the credit for the victory by defeating KKR by 6 wickets after their 10 wicket defeat against RCB. Mohammed Siraj, Devadatta Padikkal and Virat Kohli devastated him, but he showed that they would keep on fighting.
Mi key player
Rohit Sharma – Captain and opener, has scored the highest runs for Mumbai so far this season in IPL 2021 but has scored 50 runs only once. He needs Bade and his other star batsmen to go along with him.
Quinton de Cock – Fast track to the early XI post-quarantine, De Cock has been somewhat unsuccessful so far. The frustration is that he has so much potential but Chris Lynn will have to wait with the wings he will have to provide.
Jaspreet Bumrah – He is reaching his best IPL economy rate at the moment but his wickets are down in recent campaigns. Perhaps the opposing batsmen are reducing their risk against him.
Rr key player
Sanju Samson – You get the impression that Samson was surrounded by Joffra Archer, Ben Stokes and Jose Butler. That has not happened, but he still managed to contribute the most runs and away runs for his team.
David Miller – Butler fell short with the English troop, David Miller and Chris Morris are busy sealing their South African authority over the Royals. Miller has shown the ability to hit a half-century which immediately makes him a key cog in the side.
Chris Morris – His final five balls in KKR’s innings cost him zero runs and he took two wickets which gave him figures of 4-23. Rajasthan need more than this South African ball.
The results suggest that this is currently a tournament for the Mumbai Indians, but they need more runs off the bat and will be a real threat. Rajasthan won a resounding win against KKR in their last match, but we hope they fall short in favor of Rohit Sharma.
MI vs RR match pitch report
We are expecting from Arun Jaitley Stadium to create a surface for what we have seen so far in the tournament to be held in Chennai instead of Mumbai. The batsmen will have to work to score their runs.
It will be sunny with temperatures up to 41 degrees during most of the match.
