MI vs RR Dotball Preview
Will Mumbai Indians’ Dream Run Continue?
Mumbai Indians were off to a shaky start but they have gelled together well as a team and produced some morale boosting wins which has positioned them in the second place in the table. The opening pair comprising of Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock are giving good starts in the powerplay but the middle order has not clicked as much. This weakness has been superseded by Hardik’s phenomenal form and Pollard stepping up when it matters. Bumrah is in good touch with his death overs magic and Rahul Chahar has come out as an exceptional choice to fill out MI’s spinner vacancy.
Rajasthan Royals – Looking for Redemption Before It’s Too Late!
Rajasthan Royals have a lot of expectations riding on their shoulders after a disastrous start to the tournament this year. However, the grit and determination shown by Ajinkya Rahane’s boys was encouraging. Batting unit with the likes of Steve Smith, Sanju Samson and Buttler has looked bleak and not much initiative has been taken by the experienced contenders like Ben Stokes. Rahul Tripathi has shined at times but it has not been game changing. The bowling unit too has struggled with Dhawal Kulkarni and Shreyas Gopal performing at times but not on a consistent basis.
Pitch Analysis and Statistics
Wankhede has been a batsman’s paradise with 180+ scores being chased with ease. However, at times the bounce has been excessive with considerable turn on the wicket and the batsmen have found it tough to capitalize while chasing.
Average 1st innings score: 168
