Mumbai Indians haven’t been able to build up momentum and two consecutive losses put them on the back foot. Rajasthan on the other hand have been impressive with their consistency and look good to continue that sequence. It is Rajasthan’s opening partnership that has been their back bone. I am backing Rajasthan Royals to post the highest opening partnership in this match against Mumbai Indians.

  • Rajasthan Royals have posted the highest opening partnership in 4 of their last 5 matches against Mumbai Indians (IPL)

Head to Head


There have been 27 IPL matches between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals with Mumbai winning 14 and Rajasthan winning 12 while the other ended as abandoned.

Recent record stands in favour of Mumbai with four wins across their last six matches. Last season they played two matches in Mumbai at the DY Patil Academy and won one game each.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians are 8th in the standings ahead of the weekend matches with six points from seven matches. They have lost their last two after winning three in a row.

Tilak Varma continues to be Mumbai’s best batter with 219 runs while no one else has aggregated 200 yet. Piyush Chawla remains their best bowler with 11 wickets while their next best bowler is Jason Behrendorff with eight wickets.

The worry for Mumbai has been their lack of runs with none of the batters able to perform consistently while the bowlers looking listless without a leader.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Mumbai Indians are likely to have Jofra Archer after reportedly undergoing surgery in the four-game absence.

Rajasthan Royals Form


Rajasthan Royals started the weekend in top place with ten points from eight matches and a healthy net run rate. Their 32-run win over Chennai on Thursday halted a two-game losing run.

Openers have been Rajasthan’s back bone with Yashasvi Jaiswal leading the charge with 304 runs while Jos Butter aggregates 271 runs. With the ball, it has been their spinners leading the roost and Yuzvendra Chahal has 12 wickets to his name.

Sanju Samson’s inconsistent form remains a question for the Royals although they could do with a few finishers in their line-up.

Trent Boult didn’t play Rajasthan’s last game with a niggle but could be back for this match.
