Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians Preview
A team is slowly getting its act together versus a team struggling even now to get a grip of their batting order. Mumbai has been doing what Mumbai usually does in IPL which is starting slowly but gaining momentum bit by bit and becoming a force to reckon with. Until MSD decided to take a break, they were the only team to have beaten table toppers CSK and are slowly starting to play as they ideally should.
Rajasthan, on the other hand, have a lot of questions to answer when they sit back and look at their lineup, and they look at their win-loss record. It’s hard to believe that a team with Rahane, Butler, Smith, and Stokes has been one of the worst teams in this tournament.
They’ve just not clicked as a group in this tournament and have lost only too many close games, and when they look back on this tournament, they’ll question what could have been if they had conquered those crucial moments instead of relinquishing games in a heap.
Form Guide (LWLLW)
Rajasthan left with Mohali with more questions than answers from Punjab, Was the experiment of using Tripathi as an opener justified? It’s still not clear. Should Rahane open? Should Turner get another game? What about Stuart Binny’s cameo? There are a lot of questions for Rajasthan that need to be answered, but probably the biggest issue for them is their inability to seal the deal in tough situations.
Rajasthan needs to work on that if they want to get back to winning ways. For Rajasthan though, the experiment of Turner and Tripathi might continue for a few games.
The player under the spotlight
Ajinkya Rahane has had a pretty disappointing IPL by his standards. There haven’t been that many meaty contributions from his side and for someone who was one of the more consistent performers in the IPL this is just not up to his standards. As a captain as well Rahane would be looking to make an impact on the game and try to bring some semblance of stability back to the side.
Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahana, Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Rahul Tripathi, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni
Form Guide (WWLWW)
The team would be getting some headaches now because they are somewhat overly reliant on Hardik Pandya to get them to a competitive total almost every time. The game in which he fails, Mumbai would be in a whole lot of trouble. Ben Cutting was a surprise addition it did make the middle order having a tad too much firepower at its disposal. We could see Behrendorff returning in his place for this one. Jayant Yadav could make way for either Ishan Kishen or Yuvraj Singh depending on what the team management is looking for.
The player under the spotlight
One thing that you usually just don’t associate with Rohit Sharma is failing to capitalize on a good start. But that is something that has been a consistent feature for Rohit in this IPL as he has time and again was unable to convert his starts into big massive scores which one usually associates Rohit with.
Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishen/Yuvraj Singh, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Keiron Pollard, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Behrendorff, Lasith Malinga
The pitch at Jaipur is conducive for stroke-play and the long boundaries do keep the bowlers interested. A score of around 170-180 is par but with such great stroke-players in both sides, any score is within reach here.
