Rajasthan Royals who are in the bottom of the table with just only 2 wins. One more loss can affect their chance for playoffs. RR had a lot of opportunities but they haven’t capitalized it. The story of RR is same from the start of the season only if the Top order batsman plays well the team can put a good score on the board. The middle order of RR has failed on many occasions. They had few matches on their side but they have not grabbed those crucial moments. MI had a good season so far they have always maintained a well-balanced side. Main strength lies in the middle order batsman with some hard-hitting players like Hardik and Pollard. Even the top order looks promising and the bowling has been phenomenal this entire season they have many bowling options on their side. Both teams might go with same playing Xl .
Head to Head Overall Matches – 19
MI Won – 10 RR Won – 9
At Jaipur – 7
MI Won – 2 RR Won – 5
The surface at Jaipur doesn’t suit the generic style of play associated with the Mumbai Indians. RR are slightly down on confidence but they’ve competed in almost every game so far and should be able to do so this time as well. Let’s see if MI can snatch a win and stay table topper or RR will get back as a unit and keep their playoff chances alive.
