The qualification race is heating up in the final stages of IPL with already CSK and DC registering their play-off spots and RCB look well ahead of the other competitors in the league. KKR, PBKS, RR, and MI are in a four-way tie for the qualification race with equal number of the points and only Net run rate only separating them. MI and RR will need to win this match to stay alive in the competition owing to their low NRR but we can have clearly only one winner. The loser of this match will be practically out of the qualification race and winner getting a step ahead of the competitors.

Rajasthan Royals Preview

RR imparted fresh breath of air in their batting line-up and were duly rewarded wuith some brilliant performances. Yashawi Jaiswal (50 runs) and Shivam Dube (64 runs) played attacking knocks to take the opposition by surprise. Evin Lewis (27 runs) and Sanju Samson (28 runs) played some cameos to build partnerships with them as they chased down 190 runs with more than 2 overs remaining.  

Their bowling unit lacked consistency and went for a lot of runs in the last game. Rahul Tewatia picked up 3 wickets but went for few runs while Chetan Sakariya had decent bowling figures of 4-0-31-1. Akash Singh, Mustafizur Rahman, and Mayank Markande kept giving runs at over 10 RPO in the last game.

Top players to bet on:

Yashaswi Jaiswal – Jaiswal counter attacked in the steep chase scoring a 19-ball fifty and made the chase simple for his team. We expect him to make a big score in this match as the last match would have given him a lot of confidence going ahead.

Chetan Sakariya – Sakariya had bowling figures of 4-0-31-1 despite bowling in the death overs when batters were going berserk in the last game. We expect him to be more troublesome on the slow pitch in Sharjah.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing XI:

Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shivam Dube, Glenn Phillips, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Jaydev Unadkat, Mayank Markande/Shreyas Gopal, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

Mumbai Indians Preview

MI batting unit is struggling big time and they scored just 129/8 in their 20 overs last game. Surya Kumar Yadav top scored with 33 runs while other batters did not look comfortable on a tricky pitch. Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, and Kieron Pollard are yet to fire so far and their team needs their contributions badly.

MI bowlers have been fighting hard despite the poor scores of their batting line-up. They have very settled pace trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, and Nathan Coulternile who produced a combined figures of 12-0-71-3. They might bring back Rahul Chahar to join Jayant Yadav in this match at the expense of Krunal Pandya in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Surya Kumar Yadav – SKY ended his string of single digit scores with a 26-bll 33 runs last game but will be dejected to be dismissed after getting a start. We expect him to come good in this match and lead his team`s batting efforts comfortably.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah has been taking wickets consistently and has claimed 11 wickets in the 5 matches in second leg. We expect him to continue his good from in this match too.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya/Rahul Chahar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jayant Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have hot and humid conditions and the dew might settle down in the second innings and make life little harder for bowlers to grip the ball.

Venue Details

Sharjah has been the slowest of the pitches in the UAE leg and teams have failed to breach the 140-run mark in the last 4 matches. We expect the bowlers to dominate this game too but the pitch might easy out a little and more runs could be scored in this game. We expect the average scores to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option when dew factor is expected to make a difference and chasing teams have a 4-1 win-loss record here.

Both teams have been struggling this season and have been made to make some hard calls of dropping their experienced players. MI has a quality batting line-up with vast experience while RR will be oozing on confidence after their young guns took on the table-toppers last game. MI bowling attack looks leaps ahead of RR in pace department and both teams are struggling for quality spinners and we expect MI to make a hard call of dropping Krunal Pandya for Rahul Chahar in this match. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this owing to the better all-round team when compared to their counterparts.
