Sunday’s doubleheader will end with the clash between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians at Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur. The clash will start at 08:00 PM Local.
Rajasthan Royals lost their last game against Chennai Super Kings by 64 runs at MCA Pune. Royals also lost to KKR at Sawai Man Singh after 9 consecutive wins. They have lost two matches in a row and would be desperately looking for a win.
On the opposite, Mumbai Indians registered their first win of the season against Royal Challengers Bangalore in M Chinnaswamy. They have lost 3 matches out of 4 while Rajasthan Royals have registered two wins in 5 matches.
MI- L, L, L, W
RR- L, W, W, L, L
Rajasthan Royals faced another defeat after making a couple of changes. Heinrich Klassen who opened the batting for RR might come lower the order while Stuart Binny didn’t have a good outing. However, management might give him another chance. Jaydev Unadkat has been in a very poor form and didn’t have a good start to this IPL. He might also get replaced.
Mumbai Indians might remain unchanged after their first win of the season. However, Ishan Kishan who got injured in the last game might also not appear against RR. There is no update on his injury and if he doesn’t play, A Tare will take his place.
Ishan Kishan has taken part in practice sessions. However, nothing concrete can be said. He will undergo a fitness test before the match.

Rajasthan Royals will rely upon skipper Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson for putting runs on the scoreboard. Ben Stokes scored 45 of 37 balls against CSK and looked good with the bat.
In bowling, Shreyas Gopal and Ben Laughlin will be crucial. Gopal took 3 wickets while Laughlin took 2 wickets in the last encounter with CSK.
For MUM, skipper Rohit Sharma, Evin Lewis, and Pandya brothers will be the top contributors with the bat while death-over specialist J Bumrah, Mitchell McClenaghan, and Krunal Pandya will lead with the ball. Pandya took 3 wickets against RCB while Bumrah and McClenaghan took 2 wickets.
Rajasthan lost to KKR after 9 consecutive wins at Sawai Man Singh Stadium. They have a great record at their home ground but have lacked poorly due to the out of form players. Rajasthan Royals have lost their last two matches and would be eyeing on a win to gain some momentum. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians lost their first three matches even after performing well. They would be high on confidence after their last win.
As per our RAJ vs MUM match prediction, this is an evenly poised contest and anyone can turn out as the winner. Moreover, it is MI which is looking stronger at the present moment.
In wicketkeeper, Buttler will be a safe bet as there is uncertainty over Ishan Kishan’s fitness.

In all-rounders, you can pick from Pandya Brothers and Ben Stokes.
In bowling, J Bumrah, Ben Laughlin, Shreyas Gopal and M McClenaghan would be a good choice.
