Slow starts have been Mumbai’s forte, but they can’t afford to keep things waiting for long. There’s so much to improve and they can look at a home game to get started. I am backing the Mumbai Indians to turn things around here.

  • Mumbai Indians have won 5 of their last 7 matches against Rajasthan (IPL)
  • Mumbai have won 8 of their 12 matches against Rajasthan (IPL)
  • Rajasthan Royals have lost 5 of their last 7 matches at this venue against Mumbai (IPL)
  • Jos Buttler has 5 scores of 60 or more in 8 matches against Mumbai (IPL)

Head to Head


Mumbai played Rajasthan in 29 matches so far with 16 wins for the Mumbai Indians and 13 for the Royals.

Last season saw the Mumbai Indians play the Royals at this venue for a six-wicket win in a high-scoring game. Yashasi Jaiswal’s 124 set the stage for a score of 212 from the Royals. It was chased down with three balls to spare, with Suryakumar Yadav leading the innings with a 55.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians are traditionally slow starters to any season, and this year too, they started with two losses. They were beaten by Gujarat Titans by six runs and ambushed by the Sunrisers by 31 runs.

Batting hasn’t clicked for the Mumbai Indians, who have only one batter scoring an individual fifty in this season. Rohit Sharma’s improved strike rate is a big positive, though.

The bigger worry is their bowling, as the Mumbai Indians bowlers have struggled. All but Jasprit Bumrah have conceded at or more than ten runs an over this season.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Mumbai Indians have already used 14 players in this season, and could make a few more changes in this match. Luke Wood is likely to come back into the side in place of Kwena Maphaka, if he’s fit again.

Rajasthan Royals Form


The Royals had a great start to the tournament winning both their matches so far. They defeated the Lucknow Super Giants by 20 runs in the first match before getting past the Delhi Capitals by 12 runs.

Riyan Parag’s development has been the story of the Royals’ camp so far with the right-hander aggregating 127 runs at a SR of more than 170. They would still need their top-order to get into some scoring form.

With the ball, the usual suspects Yuzvendra Chahal and Trent Boult have chipped in, but they would need the likes of Avesh Khan and Ravichandran Ashwin to start getting amongst the wickets.

Rajasthan Royals Team News


The Royals stuck to the same team in both their matches so far. Rovman Powell is waiting in the wings, but could be coming in only as an impact player.
