MI vs RR Dream11 Team predictions: The Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) has a double header scheduled today with the remaining 4 teams getting to play their match over the weekend. In the second game of the day, Rajasthan Royals (RR) are set to take on the challenge of the 4-time champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in what looks like a do-or-die game for RR.
RR are currently placed at 7th position with just 4 wins as opposed to 7 losses and are desperate to win this all-important game for the side. On the contrary, a win here for MI means that they will comfortably qualify for the next stage with 8 wins in 11 games. MI are coming on the back of a super match against Chennai Super Kings which they won by 10 wickets
For RR the journey has been filled with peaks and troughs with just two wins in the last five outings. The last time these two teams met, MI had an easy 57-run win over their rivals. The match between these two is scheduled in the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi at 7.30 pm IST.

RR vs MI IPL Dream11 Team predictions : Wicket Keeper
Quinton de Kock will be the no.1 keeper-batsman in this eleven. Despite having a string of low scores in the initial games, he has turned it up to eleven when the team is needed along with his sharp skills behind the stumps. He has provided 63 points per game so far.
For RR, Jos Butler has provided match winning performances but has been highly unreliable with his inconsistencies. The English wicket-keeper has so far come up with 42.1 dream 11 points per game.
Sanju Samson continues to fire in the initial part but has lost his way yet again. He had a good innings against SRH but needs a big one against MI on Sunday. He has delivered close to 42.5 fantasy points per game so far.
Ishan Kishan is another young talent who showed what he is capable with that explosive innings against CSK. He has managed to deliver 45.8 points per game so far.
MI vs RR Dream11 Team predictions : Batsman
Steve Smith has managed to build the innings but has failed to finish with fireworks. The Aussie great will have to play freely at a greater strike rate if the team wants to beat a top team like MI. He has so far provided 34.7 points on an average this season.
Even though Rohit Sharma was unavailable against CSK, the team would be hoping that he would return against RR. He has had his ups and downs this season with an average of 44.3 fantasy points given every game.
Hardik Pandya isn’t having the best of seasons with no big scores in the bag and has struggled to finish games for the team at 5. He has so far managed only 27.6 points and is a pure batsman this time around.
Suryakumar Yadav has been a tad unlucky this season but has had his share of success in the top order. He has delivered 38.3 fantasy points on an average in this edition.
RR vs MI Dream 11 Team predictions : All-rounder
Rahul Tewatia has been an asset for the side with big hits in the lower middle order and useful overs in the middle with control and accuracy. He has been their best all-rounder by averaging 50.9 points per game in his first season for RR.
Kieron Pollard has been Mumbai’s best all-rounder for a while who can do everything on the field. He has managed to provide 40 fantasy points per game so far.
The biggest concern for RR has been Ben Stokes who hasn’t really changed the team’s fortune after his team return. It’s better for the team to send him at 5 which will give him the license to fire at the back end. He has only given 29.2 points per match which is below par given his high standards.
MI vs RR Dream11 Team predictions : Bowler
It is almost like Jofra Archer has carried the RR bowling line up in this tournament. The English pacer has been the most effective with his pace, bounce and occasional yorkers. He has consistently provided 54.9 points per game.
For MI, they have the services of two of the best frontline bowlers in the world in Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult. While Bumrah has given 47.6 points per game, Boult has complimented that with 48.2 fantasy points per game in this edition.
The spin department led by Shreyas Gopal has looked toothless for the entire season. The Karnataka spinner will have to stage a comeback in the coming games after getting his confidence dented in the initial games. He has provided 21.8 points on an average in this IPL.
The Mumbai Indians have played just one spinner with Krunal Pandya assisting Rahul Chahar. Even though he hasn’t taken wickets, he has made sure that he exerts pressure for the batsman from one end. Rahul Chahar has delivered 39.3 fantasy points so far.
