Rajasthan Royals will be squaring up against Mumbai Indians in match 51 of IPL 2021 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. The match will commence on Tuesday, October 05 at 07:30 PM IST. Here are our RR vs MI Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
RR vs MI Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Rajasthan Royals have punched well above their weight:
Jofra Archer, the MVP of last year had withdrawn from the tournament even before it began. Ben Stokes, their leading light quit post the first game. Jos Buttler, their talisman skipped the UAE leg. Their high-profile signing, Chris Morris has had a horrendous run of form in UAE. RR are one team have suffered the most setbacks this season but they have refused to give up. They have consistently punched above their weight to stay alive in the competition even now. Their Indian talent has come of age and challenged bigger names in the league. RR will be looking for 2 more games of inspiration to enter the playoffs.
The defending champions look down and out:
Mumbai Indians came into the tournament having won the title twice in two years. They had a great chance to become the first team to win the title thrice in a row. But their campaign up until now has drifted big time from their plans. Their overreliance on matchups has cost them few games. MI’s biggest bugbear this season is their refusal to acknowledge the glaring weakness in their team. They did try bringing in few changes but it hasn’t helped their cause so far. MI have lost 4 out of the 5 games they have played in UAE this season. They will be up against RR in the quest to survive and march ahead.
