In a double-header on Saturday, the first match will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians at Rajasthan's home ground at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.


Rajasthan Royals are almost out of contention to qualify for the playoffs and are at the second last spot in the points table, while Mumbai Indians have climbed to the second place with six wins from nine matches.


Rajasthan Royals lost their last match against Kings XI Punjab due to some expensive bowling from Ish Soshi and Jaydev Unadkat and conceded 182 runs. Jofra Archer was the pick of the bowlers as always and claimed extraordinary figures of 4-15-3.

Ajinkya Rahane has now dropped himself at number four. Rahul Tripathi and Jos Buttler are the new openers for Rajasthan Royals. While both made handy contributions, they did not get the team off to a start which helps set a good base for changing a 183-run target.

Sanju Samson and Ajinkya Rahane also scored 20s but they were too slow to do the team any good. Stuart Binny smashed unbeaten 33 from just 11 balls at a strike rate of 300, including two fours and three sixes but Rajasthan were so far behind the required run rate at that point that despite Binny's knock, they fell short by 12 runs.

Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Hardik Pandya and Keiron Pollard would be the leading batters for Mumbai, while Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah would be their strike bowlers.

 

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Rajasthan Royals- Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Ish Sodhi

Mumbai Indians- Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Jayant Yadav, Rahul Chahar, Ben Cutting, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah
