Betting Tips

  • Mumbai Indians have an excellent bowling unit but their batting has been their achilles heel so far in this campaign. Rohit Sharma has made 201 runs across the five games with only Suryakumar Yadav (154) also contributing 100+ runs. With the ball, Rahul Chahar has taken 9 wickets, Trent Boult has been threatening throughout and Jasprit Bumrah has an impressive economy rate of 6.36.
  • Sanju Samson has led the way for Rajasthan Royals not only as captain but also with the bat. He has contributed 187 runs in the tournament so far although 161 of them have come in two innings. David Miller is the only other Royal to have passed 50 in the 2021 IPL. Chris Morris (9) and Chetan Sakariyar (7) have taken the most wickets with Jaydev Unadkat and Mustafizur Rahman both chipping in with 4 each.
  • Rohit Sharma’s side have been particularly fortunate with injuries and player welfare. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have now lost Jofra Archer (injury), Ben Stokes (injury), Liam Livingstone (bubble fatigue) and Andrew Tye (Returned Home) during the season.

MI vs RR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2021

Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals go head to head for the first time in this year’s tournament. Both teams come into this game after two wins and three defeats, although Mumbai Indians have looked a lot stronger than the depleted Rajasthan Royals who seem to lose at least one player after every match. Read on as we preview this clash of the 2021 IPL. The game will get underway at 15:30 local time and will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.

After two successive defeats, Mumbai Indians will have benefited from a six day break in between fixtures following their 9 wicket loss to Punjab Kings. They will hope to return with their batting deficiencies ironed out and their bowlers well rested after beginning the campaign impressively.

Rajasthan Royals deserve immense credit for bouncing back from their 10 wicket defeat against RCB to beat KKR by 6 wickets. They looked down and out after Mohammed Siraj, Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli destroyed them but they have shown they will continue to fight.

MI vs RR Match Toss Prediction

Whenever Rohit Sharma has won the toss he has opted to bat first. Sanju Samson has chosen to field first on the occasions he has won the toss.

MI vs RR Match Pitch Report

We are expecting the Arun Jaitley Stadium to produce a surface more like what we have seen so far in the tournament in Chennai rather than Mumbai. Batsmen will have to work for their runs.

Weather Report

It will be mostly sunny with the temperature as high as 41 degrees during the match.

MI vs RR Prediction

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Mumbai can consider themselves to have been particularly lucky to have kept their squad available as others have seen players depart for home for injury or other reasons. They have a very strong team and have higher standards than we have seen so far.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma - The captain and opening batsman has made by far the most runs for Mumbai this season in IPL 2021 but has only passed 50 once. He needs to go bigger and his other star batsmen to go with him.
  • Quinton de Kock - Fast tracked to the starting XI post-quarantine, de Kock has been somewhat of a failure so far. The frustration is that he has so much ability but with Chris Lynn waiting in the wings he must deliver.
  • Jasprit Bumrah - He is delivering his best ever IPL economy rate at the moment but his wickets are way down on recent campaigns. Perhaps the opposing batsmen are minimising their risks against him.

MI Team Form

Two wins and two defeats looked like a slow but solid start to the campaign but three defeats puts a different complexion on it. The champions are in a rut and need to find their way out of it as soon as possible.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (c) , Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Jayant Yadav, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

Rajasthan Royals Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Although they have had to contend with player withdrawals, Ben Stokes was the only one of the four who actually took to the field in a game in the 2021 IPL. After their gritty win against KKR, we expect them to keep the same XI for this game. 

RR Key Players

  • Sanju Samson - you get the impression that there were carefully constructed plans to ease Samson into the captaincy surrounded by Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. That hasn’t happened but he has still managed to contribute far and away the most runs for his side.
  • David Miller - with the English contingent reduced to Buttler, David Miller and Chris Morris have been busy stamping their South African authority on the Royals. Miller has shown the ability to hit a half-century which instantly makes him a crucial cog in the side.
  • Chris Morris - his final five balls in the KKR innings cost zero runs and delivered two wickets which gave him figures of 4-23. Rajasthan need more of the same with the ball from this South African.

RR Team Form

Getting the 10 wicket defeat out of their system with a win against KKR within 48 hours was crucial. Rajasthan’s squad is depleted but they are showing admirable resilience.

Rajasthan Royals Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler, Yashavi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c) (wk), David Miller, Shivam Dube, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman

We are backing Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock and Suryakumar Yadav with the bat for Mumbai Indians. Rohit continues to deliver but his side could really use a big knock from him.

For Rajasthan Royals we are backing Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler and David Miller. The England keeper-batsman hasn’t found his form as yet but often returns with a top innings after a lean run.

We are backing Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar and Trent Boult to cause the most problems for the Rajasthan Royals batsmen. All three have shown their class and Bumrah is due a large wicket haul.

For Rajasthan Royals we have gone with Chris Morris, Mustafizur Rahman and Chetan Sakariya. All eyes will be on Morris to see if he can repeat his death bowling heroics from the last match.

Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Prediction

The results would suggest that this is currently one tournament too many for Mumbai Indians but they just need more runs with the bat and they will be a real threat. Rajasthan squeezed out an excellent win against KKR in their last game but we expect them to come up short against Rohit Sharma’s side.

Final Verdict

Mumbai Indians are favorites to win against Rajasthan Royals at odds of 1.57

MI vs RR Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Sanju Samson (9.5) will be our wicket-keeper. Any captain would struggle without Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer in their side but Samson continues to deliver

  • Batsmen

    Rohit Sharma (10.5), Suryakumar Yadav (9.5), David Miller (9) and Riyan Parag (8.5) are our batsmen. If Sharma and Yadav can deliver together then Mumbai will get themselves into a strong position

  • All-rounders

    Kieron Pollard (8.5) and Chris Morris (9.5) will be our all-rounder. Morris starred with the ball against KKR and will be looking to pick up where he left off.

  • Bowlers

    Trent Boult (9), Jasprit Bumrah (9), Rahul Chahar (8.5) and Chetan Sakariya (8.5) make up our bowling attack. The Mumbai Indians trio backed up by Sakariya’s pace.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Rohit Sharma will be captain, Jasprit Bumrah his deputy

MI vs RR Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Rohit Sharma(c), Suryakumar Yadav, David Miller, Riyan Parag

  • All Rounder:Kieron Pollard, Chris Morris

  • Wicket Keeper:Sanju Samson

  • Bowler:Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah(vc), Rahul Chahar, Chetan Sakariya

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, and David Miller approach milestones

Wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan needs 35 runs to complete 1000 IPL runs for Mumbai Indians. He would become the tenth player from the Mumbai franchise to achieve this feat. Rajasthan Royals batsman David Miller is 62 runs away from completing 2000 runs in IPL. Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma (5431) needs 59 runs to overtake David Warner (5447), Shikhar Dhawan (5462), and Suresh Raina (5489) respectively to take the second spot in the IPL run-scorers list. Virat Kohli leads the list with 6041 runs.

Mumbai Indians will look to fix middle Order Issues against Rajasthan Royals

Mumbai Indians will look to get their campaign back on track when they face Rajasthan Royals at the Kotla on Thursday after two back-to-back defeats. Their middle order is not firing at all and the likes of Pollard and Hardik Pandya are not having the best of the tournament so far. If their middle-order gets sorted out they will be difficult to beat as a team as their bowlers have been exceptional so far.

    Rajasthan Royals will be confident with a win in their last game aginst kolkata but still they lack that much power in the batting and bowling needed to defeat Mi

    Mumbai Indians are struggling so is the Rajasthan Royals. Both will look to win and make some progress in points table.

    Jos Butler needs to find his form at the top if RR re looking to win. He has not been performing as per the expectation for Royals.
