Dubai : Both the teams will be looking to win the match tonight to better their chances of winning the tournament as the tournament is getting all heated up.The Mumbai indians after their defeat in the super over against the Royal Challengers have come back strongly in their previous game against the Sunraisers Hyderabad,whereas the Royals after starting the season on a winning note is now in trouble with consecutive losses.
The Mumbai indians is looking stronger not just on paper by having a well balanced side but also on the field with all their players finding form,but the key issue for the team is definitely their captian Rohit sharma even though he is looking in good touch with two big half centuries,we’ve seen him going for those big shots too early and throwing his wicket away like he did in the match against Royal Challengers,that will leave a big psychological impact on the team loosing a big wicket early in the match,apart from that the teams key bowler Jaspreet Bumrah’s performance will also be crucial.Wicket keeper De Cock is in good form,scored two half centuries in the last two games.Suryakumar yadav is looking in good touch but yet to play a big inninigs,teams middle order is looking deadly with players like pollard and the pandya brothers.Rohit may not make changes to a winning squad.
The Rajasthan Royals team might be looking at a few changes,they might be looking to replace Robin uttappa and may change batting order and give a chance to young jaiswal and captain Smith may place himself in the middle order.The team had their A-list player Ben Stokes back but is yet to finish his quarantine so,he might not be available for tonights game.
The good points that are going to be in favour of Royals is that the record of their opener Jos Butler against MI and also the venue Sheikh zayed stadium,Abu Dhabi,where mumbai had played only a single game till now.
