MI vs RR Predictions and Betting : Team News
Mumbai Indians have won their last two matches and are expected to go with an unchanged side against Rajasthan. Their batting has been their strength.
Captain Rohit Sharma has been leading from the front in the batting department.
He is assisted by Quinton de Kock (wk) and the young prodigy Ishan Kishan who is having a dream run in IPL 2020. Kieron Pollard has been excellent and he is expected to carry on with his excellent form. Suryakumar Yadav has performed well in some games along with Saurabh Tiwary
Hardik Pandya is gradually getting his mojo back which is a good sign for Mumbai Indians. However, Krunal Pandya has disappointed till date in IPL 2020.
For Rajasthan, batting has been a real concern. After the first two victories, they have lost both the matches. In the last two games, they have clearly exposed with the likes of Jos Buttler, Steve Smith and Sanju Samson getting out early that has exerted a lot of pressure on the inexperienced and inconsistent middle order.
Robin Uthappa has looked totally out of sorts in four games with a potential replacement in the name of Manan Vohra for the next game. Rahul Tewatia has come too late in the order and the team might be thinking of pushing him to the No.5 spot. Mahipal Lomror was a good choice as he saved the team from getting out inside 130 against RCB.
As far as bowling is concerned, Mumbai Indians are stronger than RR even in this department. The bowling attack has Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult and James Pattinson who have not only been good with the new ball but have improved their death bowling drastically after being expensive in the initial games. Rahul Chahar is a great leg spin option.
Though not the best but the bowling line-up of RR isn’t as vulnerable as the batting order with Jofra Archer performing day in and day out. Jaydev Unadkat will have to be less predictive with his variations and should alter his length to get success. Shreyas Gopal looked a lot better on Saturday with support coming from Rahul Tewatia. Tom Curran has again gone for more than 12 RPO in 3.1 overs with a chance of Andrew Tye playing in place of him.
