MI vs RR Dream11 Prediction

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals, 27th Match | MI vs RR Who Will Win

We are into the 4th week of Indian Premier League 2019, which means it is time for yet another doubleheader to take place and the first match of the day will take place between the Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals, followed by the match between Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Mumbai Indians

After an amazing show in the last game against Kings XI Punjab, Mumbai Indians have burst into the top four for the first time season and their next challengers will be the Rajasthan Royals who are almost out of the contention to finish among the top four.

Injury bound Rohit Sharma missed the last game which saw Kieron Pollard donning the skipper’s hat and he delivered with the bat as well with an astounding 83 from 31 deliveries which included 3 fours and 10 lusty blows over the rope.

His innings was quintessential in the course to chase a record total at the Wankhede for the Mumbai Indians. Now, with confidence creeping up the nerves, the Mumbai Indians would be eyeing three wins in a row and make it 4 wins in a row.

Rajasthan Royals

It has been a very sad story to narrate for the Rajasthan Royals as they have won only a single game so far from 6 matches which came against the bottom-placed Royal Challengers Bangalore.

With some mundane names in the set-up like Ajinkya Rahane, Jos Buttler, Steven Smith and Ben Stokes, this team has got everything up their sleeves but still are not able to deliver in cohesion.

Their last night loss against CSK on the very last ball of the match has induced even more pain into their spirits and they definitely must be deflated at this stage of the competition. A miraculous turnaround is what they need at this juncture to make it to the last four.

The surface at the Wankhede in Mumbai

The surface at Wankhede tends to remain dry in the day game which helps batsmen to play their strokes on the up. Dryness of the wicket also gives some assistance to the spinners which means it could be a good show between the bat and ball.

Average 1st inn score in IPL: 166

MI vs RR Dream11 Teams

Players to watch out MI:

Fresh of a magnificent win over KXIP in their previous game, MI would be looking to consolidate their spot on the points table. The likes of Suryakumar Yadav and Quinton de Kock have shown consistency with the bat, whereas, the stand-in skipper Kieron Pollard made a mark with a blistering 83 in the last game to take his side home. With Zaheer Khan confirming the availability of Rohit Sharma for this game will definitely boost the confidence in the camp.

Jasprit Bumrah still remains their X-Factor in the bowling department and with the likes of Alzarri Joseph, and all-rounder Hardik Pandya who can deliver with both bat and ball makes their bowling department tantalizing.

Players to watch out RR:

From 2 innings played against MI so far in his IPL career, Jos Buttler has got 100 runs against his name with the highest being 94. Steve Smith averages 48.71 against MI, whereas, Sanju Samson has four 50’s from12 innings against this opponent.

In the bowling department, Jaydev Unadakat, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jofra Archer and Shreyas Gopal will hold the key for RR. From just 2 matches against MI, Archer has scalped 5, whereas, Jaydev Unadkat has scalped 12 wickets from 11 games against the same opponents.
