RR vs MI Match Prediction & Preview


The Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians are set to clash heads on Tuesday when they battle it out at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Sanju Samson’s side came away with one of the upsets of the tournament thus far, to keep their playoff chances alive. They managed to chase down the top of the ladder Super Kings total of 189 with seven wickets to spare.

The most pleasing aspect of the win was the thorough team performance of each batsman in the run chase, with Shivam Dube’s unbeaten 64* the highest individual score.

However, if they are any chance of making it to the playoffs, they will have to win both of their remaining matches against the Indians (7th) and Knight Riders (4th).

Similarly, the Mumbai Indians are in the exact same situation, but unfortunately for them, have a worse net run rate. The Indians finish the season against Rajasthan (6th) and Sunrisers (8th) and will need results to go their way.

However, they did lose their last outing against the second place Delhi Capitals by four wickets. A win would have put them in a strong position to make the top four. They struggled to cope with the pace of Avesh Khan and spin of Axar Patrel.

This is a must-win match for both sides, with their playoff chances on the line. It promises to be a fiery encounter, in which I believe the Royals could come away with a valuable two points.
