Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians

The two teams have had a contrasting season so far. Rajasthan have emerged as one of the best teams in the competition, winning six of their eight games. Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, are yet to win a single game after eight outings and are out of the playoffs contention. Rajasthan, this year, boasts of a quality squad which makes them a tough team to beat. Their dominance in the tournament can be understood by the fact that the Orange Cap holder (Jos Buttler) and Purple Cap winner (Yuzvendra Chahal are from the Rajasthan team. Mumbai lacks depth in their batting and their bowling looks bleak as well. It will be tough for Mumbai to edge past Rajasthan.

Rajasthan Royals

The team was on song in the last game and outplayed Bangalore. They are likely to stick with the same combination


Jos Butter, Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson form a strong top order for Rajasthan Royals. Buttler is in red hot form and is the holder of Orange Cap. Padikkal has also played a few good hands in the last couple of games. Sanju Samson has looked good but is still searching for a real big inning.

Middle Order

Shimron Hetmyer and Riyan Parag will be the middle order batters. Hetmyer has played the role of a finisher to perfection, hitting some lusty blows towards the end of innings. Parag also justified his selection in the last game against Bangalore with a match-winning half century.


Daryl Mitchell and R Ashwin will be important all-rounders in the team. Ashwin has been used as a floater in the batting department where he can be promoted to any position to score quick runs. Mitchell played his first game against Bangalore and it will be interesting to see how he performs in the long run


RR have probably the best bowling lineup in IPL, with Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Kuldeep Sen and Yuzvendra Chahal at disposal. All bowlers are match-winners on their day. Chahal also holds the Purple cap.

RR Key batters

  • Jos Butter - Jos Buttler has been in red hot form this season with 499 runs in 8 games. He has three hundreds to his name as well.
  • Sanju Samson - The skipper has come in and played some crisp shots. However, a big knock has still eluded him. Samson will be eyeing a big score against a bleak Mumbai attack.
  • Devdutt Padikkal - Padikkal has just started to find his feet in this season of the Indian T20 League. He will be looking to build on the momentum and play some big innings for his team in the games to come.

Jos Buttler 73 2467 39.16 151.82 13/4
Samju Samson 129 3296 29.43 135.97 16/3
Devdutt Padikkal 37 1083 30.08 125.64 7/1

RR Key bowlers

  • Yuzvendra Chahal - Chahal has been sensational in the Indian Premier League 2022, with 18 wickets in 8 games. He currently holds the Purple Cap.
  • Trent Boult - The Kiwi pacer has been good as well. His wicket-taking ability in the powerplay has allowed RR to take an early advantage in the match.
  • R Ashwin - The veteran spinner picked 3-17 in the last game against Bangalore to help RR defend a modest total of 144. He will be eyeing another decent show.

Jos Buttler, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (captain/wicketkeeper), Shimron Hetmyer, Riyan Parag, Daryl Mitchell, R Ashwin, Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen.

Mumbai Indians

Since Mumbai is out of the playoff race, they may now give their fringe players a go in the playing XI. Expect Mumbai to bring in Tim David, and Mayank Markande in the team. 


Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Dewald Brevis will comprise the top order. Mumbai have struggled because of the poor form of Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma. Both players have been way below par. Brevis, however, has been played a few cameos

Middle Order

Tilak Varma, and Suryakumar Yadav will be the batters to follow. Both players have been among the few positives in a rather miserable season for Mumbai.


Tim David, Kieron Pollard and Hrithik Shokeen will be the all-rounders. Mumbai is likely to bring in David in place of Sams. While Pollard has been ordinary, he may just hold his place in the team. Shokeen has done well with the ball thus Mumbai will be keen to give him a long run.


Jaydev Undatkat, Riley Meredith and Jasprit Bumrah will be the bowlers. While Bumrah has been economical, he hasn’t picked a lot of wickets. The other two bowlers have looked ineffective so far.

MI Key batters 

  • Rohit Sharma - Sharma is long due for a big score. A player of his calibre has struggled for too long and a big inning should be around the corner.
  • Suryakumar Yadav - Suryakumar Yadav has been the best batter for Mumbai. In almost every game, he has played a lone hand for Mumbai. However, he has failed to win a game for his team.
  • Kieron Pollard - One would feel that Kieron Pollard is due for a big one. The batter might well be playing his final IPL and would want to deliver a few good performances for his team.

MI Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average SR 50/100
Rohit Sharma 221 5764 30.66 130.29 40/1
Ishan Kishan 69 1651 38.47 132.19 11/0
Kieron Pollard 186 3383 29.16 149.9 16/0

MI Top Bowlers

  • Jasprit Bumrah - Bumrah has bowled well and hasn’t gone for too many. However, he hasn’t picked a lot of wickets which has hurt Mumbai.
  • Jaydev Unadkat - Unadkat is very experienced in the Indian Premier League. While he isn’t a big wicket-taker, he can control the run flow, allowing the likes of Bumrah and other bowlers to squeeze a few wickets.
  • Riley Meredith - Meredith will have a big task in hand to support Bumrah. With his extra pace, he can trouble the batters.

MI Top Bowlers Stats

Bowler Matches wickets Average Economy Best figures
Jasprit Bumrah 114 135 23.9 7.43 4/14
Jayadev Unadkat 91 91 30.53 20.84 5/25

MI Probable Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (captain), Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Tim David, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith, Jaydev Unadkat.
