Rajasthan Royals push Mumbai Indians in deeper trouble

Sanju Samson stepped in and added 26 from 14 balls to take RR to within touching distance of victory, he was dismissed on the 5 ball of the 18 over, just before Buttler sealed the win with a six off the next delivery.

And at the Wankhede, team winning toss could be eager to chase as the pitch tends to get better through the game.

The tie is a must-win for both sides, with MI fifth in the points table with 10 points from 11 games while RR sit right below them on sixth with the same points but inferior Net Run Rate (NRR).

Suryakumar Yadav has been Mumbai's standout batsman, contributing 435 runs, even as the other batters have been inconsistent, with captain Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis scoring 267 and 265 runs respectively. Add to it the firepower of Ben Cutting and Krunal and Hardik Pandya, their batting can be most devastating. For Mumbai Indians- eyes will be on the Pandya brothers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mayank Markande who have been doing phenomenal for the Mumbai Indians.

Atypically, the Celtics attacked the rim more than they launched 3-pointers, and the result was a relatively efficient first-half. Both players, however, have shown their youth and limitations against a more experienced and better coached Boston team.


The Mumbai franchise face a former member of their ranks on Sunday and one who is on a roll of his own with Jos Buttler going to fifty in each of his last four IPL appearances. Mumbai's opponent, Rajasthan will also come with high confidence.

Stokes, the costliest buy in IPL auction 2018, has also failed in his bowling, picking up only three wickets so far. Ish Sodhi is sick. Rohit has only one knock to cherish till now - his match winning 94 against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede Stadium - but apart from that he has not performed up to his standard and he would be keen to notch up a big one.

In their last meeting recently, it was RR who completed a thrilling three-wicket win against MI, who struggling with the finishing abilities. Live streaming will be available on hotstar.com. The fans will be able to watch the live match proceedings from 08:00 PM onwards.
