Mumbai Indians (MI) will square off against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in a do-or-die clash at the iconic Wankhede Stadium on May 13 (Sunday), as the losing team will eventually get knocked out of this league playoff stage.

Meanwhile, both the team’s are coming back from a win and will look to keep their winning momentum going.

Mumbai, who got a good start in the last game will look to bank on that in this game. Moreover, the middle-order batsmen like Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya have also done well.

The bowling unit had a topsy-turvy season so far and will look to pick up from this game. The young leg-spinner Mayank Markande has done well throughout this season.

On the other hand, Rajasthan struggled as their big buys failed to make a mark.

However, Jos Buttler’s blistering form at the top will keep them in the hunt. Jofra Archer’s entry has strengthened the bowling as they will look to put the act together.
