After serving up two edge-of-the-seat thrillers, Mumbai Indians (MI) eye revenge against Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur today. Currently, sitting at the top of the points table, this will be Rajasthan Royals last home game of the season.

With furious batters like Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Dhruv Jurel, the pink army looks promising against Mumbai Indians in today’s match. The win against Hardik Pandya’s team could see the team solidify its position in the top two and easily qualify for playoff.

Both Sanju Samson and Jos Butler are expected to deliver once again. Moreover, player like Riyan Parag has been performing pretty well for his team this season. The young Assam batter has reinvented himself and his awesome batting is one of the reasons why RR find themselves at the top spot.

On the other hand, Hardik Pandya’s team is also looking forward to turn the game towards to their advantage. With three wins in the last four games, MI are on a rampaging run to reach sixth spot in the points table. The blue army is on a recovery road after a poor start in this IPL season.

With star batters like Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma and bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah, MI can outperform RR if everyone performs well. 

The MI vs RR match will be held at Sawai Mansingh Stadium that has hosted four games so far. The pitch here has been a batting-friendly venue with some assistance for spinners.
