New Delhi, 28 April Defending champions Mumbai Indians will face Rajasthan Royals in the 24th match of the 14th season of the IPL at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here on Thursday. Mumbai had to face defeat against Punjab Kings by nine wickets in their last match. Before that, the team was defeated by Delhi Capitals by six wickets. On the other hand, there has been a lot of discontinuity in Rajasthan’s performance this season. Like Mumbai, Rajasthan has won just two of their five matches. But he has won against Kolkata Knight Riders by six wickets. Rajasthan has a limited number of foreign players left. Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes are out of the league due to injury. Liam Livingstone and Andrew Tye have returned home, citing the Bio Bubble. The team now has only four foreign players left.
At the same time, Mumbai’s middle-order has been his most worrying. His experience on Kotla’s spin pitch can be of some use. Playing big shots can be challenging for the team’s batsmen. Both teams have four points on their account. But Mumbai’s net run rate is better than Rajasthan and it is considered to be a contender for victory here.
