mi vs rr Match Prediction & Analysis

IPL has been a huge success among the fans this year getting record viewership in the television. Defending Champions Mumbai Indians pulled up their socks brilliantly after their loss in opening match to win three of their 4 matches and their only loss came in the super over contest. Rajasthan Royals on the other hand started the season with a bang scoring massive runs in their first 2 matches at Sharjah. They failed to adjust to the Dubai NA Abu Dhabi grounds in their last 2 matches and lost their matches respectively. They will be delighted with the arrival of Ben Stokes but he won’t be available for this match owing to quarantine. We expect a cracking contest between these two teams in this match.

Teams Preview

Mumbai Indians Preview

Quinton De Kock returned to form to fine fashion scoring 67 runs of 39 balls after Rohit`s early dismissal. Their middle order batting unit of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik, Pollard, and Krunal contributed with the bat scoring 20s & 30s at a superb strike arte of nearly 150+ to take their team to a 208 runs.

MI bowlers restricted the opposition to 176 runs in their 20 overs which is lowest score in Sharjah so far. Pace trio of James Pattinson, Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah picked up 2 wickets each in the match. Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard bowled the majority of the remaining overs to have combined figures of 7-0-55-1.

Top players to bet on:

Kieron Pollard – Pollard has scored 163 runs at a strike rate of 200+ in this season so far. And he has been dismissed only once so far. He can also give you vital overs in the middle for the team.

Trent Boult – Boult has picked up 8 wickets at an economy rate of just 8.2 RPO in this season. He dismissed Johnny Bairstow and Kane Williamson in the last match to give his team upper hand in the chase.

Rajasthan Royals Preview

Rajasthan Royals rely heavily on their top-3 and they failed to score 160 runs in last 2 matches.  Buttler is yet to fire while Smith and Samson are yet to score big outside Sharjah. Mahipal Lormor played brilliantly for his 47 runs last match. Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer have scored runs at the death to help their post a good score.

On the bowling front, Jofra Archer is their most consistent bowler and he had figures of 4-0-18-1 in the last match. Rahul Tewatia and Shreyas Gopal have fared better and have picked up crucial wickets in the middle overs so far. Tom Curran and Jaydev Unadkat have been too expensive with the ball this season so far.

Top players to bet on:

Sanju Samson – Samson has two single digit scores in the 2 matches after his massive scores in the first two matches. We expect him to return to form in this match and score more runs to help his team post a good score.

Jofra Archer – Jofra Archer has just 4 wickets in the 4 matches but his economy rate stands out at just 6.75 RPO. He has scored 62runs at a strike arte of 250 in the final overs with 8 sixes to his name.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith (c), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag/Manan Vohra, Rahul Tewatia, Tom Curran, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi is expected good breezy climate with no chances of rain whatsoever. Dew might settle in in the latter stages of the match which might trouble the bowlers to grip the ball.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi has been best ground for the bowlers this season with its bigger boundaries. And batsmen can take advantage of the conditions if they can settle in. We can expect scores in the range of 160-180 runs in this pitch.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams have 50-50 record chasing and batting first in this venue so far. We expect both captains to chase the total as teams have preferred chasing more often so far.

MI vs RR Winning Prediction

Mumbai Indians is one the most settles batting line-up in the IPL so far with their top-7 batsmen making runs consistently. They also have a good combination of pace and spin bowling in their XI and they have very little holes to plug in the team. Rajasthan Royals need to settle their inexperienced middle order with runs at the top while their bowling lacks the X-factor barring Jofra Archer. But they will be high on confidence owing to their head-to-head record against the Mumbai Indians. We expect Mumbai Indians to continue their winning streak in this match too.

MUMBAI INDIANS WILL WIN THE MATCH
