Head to Head


Rajasthan and Mumbai have played each other in 30 matches so far, with Mumbai winning 16 and Rajasthan winning 14.

The last time they met was in this season, when Rajasthan won by six wickets in Mumbai. Batting first, the Mumbai Indians could only score 125 for 9, with only two batters getting into the 30s. The chase was led by Riyan Parag, who scored an entertaining fifty.

Rajasthan Royals Form


Rajasthan Royals have 12 points from seven matches and are at the top of the standings after Saturday’s matches. Their only loss has come against the Gujarat Titans at this venue.

In their last game, the Royals chased 224 against Kolkata, with two wickets to spare. Jos Buttler’s sparkling century (107 off 60) made the difference for Rajasthan.

Riyan Parag (318) leads the run charts for Rajasthan, who are well-served by Yuzvendra Chahal’s 12 wickets.

Sandeep Sharma’s fitness will be a matter of discussion, and he could perhaps take the place of Kuldeep Sen.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians are stuck in the middle of the points tally with six points from seven matches. Their three wins have come across their last four matches.

They are coming off a tight match against the Punjab Kings, where they edged out the Kings by nine runs. They batted first, scoring 192 for 7, with Suryakumar Yadav top-scoring with 78. The bowlers were put under pressure in the chase, but Gerald Coetzee and Jasprit Bumrah took three wickets each to win the game for Mumbai.

Rohit Sharma (297) remains Mumbai’s best batter of the campaign, while Tilak Varma and Ishan Kishan have given him good support. The bowling is led by the pace duo of Bumrah and Coetzee, who have 25 wickets between them.

Mumbai could think long and hard about their overseas combination, with Mohammad Nabi likely under threat.

Verdict

Mumbai has been under pressure for a long time, but three wins out of four give them good momentum. Will that be enough against table-topping Rajasthan? I doubt their chances, as there’s too much inconsistency at the moment, as compared to what has been a steady season for the Royals. I am putting my money on a Rajasthan win.
