Rajasthan Royals secured a brilliant victory against Chennai Super Kings in their last game. As a result, they are still in contention to qualify for the playoffs. With Shivam Dube scoring big and Glenn Phillips playing a good cameo, it is highly unlikely that the Royals will make any changes for this game.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians have suffered a major hit in their chances to qualify for the next stage as they lost against Delhi Capitals in a low scoring game on Saturday. Therefore they will have to compulsorily win their remaining two games to qualify for the playoffs. MI could make few changes in their batting lineup as their middle order is struggling a lot.

Prediction for the IPL 2021 Match between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians

Analyzing as per the current form of both sides, Rajasthan is expected to emerge victorious in what would be a closely fought fixture. Both the sides had some positives and negatives in their last games and we could likely see some fireworks when these two teams step inside the field.

Fantasy XI for this IPL 2021 Match

Yashasvi Jaiswal 9 Cr

Jaiswal scored an outstanding half century off 19 deliveries against Chennai in their last fixture. The opener has consistently delivered for Rajasthan and will be crucial in today’s game.

Sanju Samson 10 Cr (Captain)

Sanju Samson is currently second on the list of top run getters of IPL 2021. He is in exquisite form and his contribution will play a major factor against Mumbai Indians. Accordingly I have selected him as the captain for this game.

Shivam Dube 8.5 Cr

Shivam Dube played an unbelievable inning of 64 runs from 42 deliveries which helped Rajasthan chase down a gigantic total of 190 against Chennai. Hence his emergence as a finisher in the middle order will be a huge boost and he could end up scoring big once againn.

Mustafizur Rehman 9 Cr

Rehman had a disappointing outing against Chennai in the last game. However, that wicket was batting friendly whereas this Sharjah pitch offers a lot of assistance to bowlers who can use variations. So Mustafizur could likely find himself in the wicket column against MI tomorrow.

Rahul Tewatia 8.5 Cr

Rahul Tewatia was excellent in the last game as he picked up three crucial wickets at the top which helped Rajasthan. Hence the leg spinner can continue on his form as Sharjah has been good for bowlers so far.

Jasprit Bumrah 9.5 (Vice-Captain)

Bumrah has been Mumbai’s top bowler during this phase of the tournament. The fast bowler has picked up wickets on regular basis and as a result, I have selected him in this fantasy XI and chosen him as the vice captain.

Trent Boult 9 Cr

Boult bowled brilliantly against DC as he squeezed the run flow of the Delhi batsman and ended up picking a crucial wicket. Therefore the Kiwi bowler will be very influential along with his partner Bumrah at the top against RR.

Quinton De Kock 9.5 Cr

De Kock has helped Mumbai get good starts while the rest of the batting order is struggling. So one can expect him to carry MI and give them a flying start against Rajasthan.

Suryakumar Yadav 9 Cr

Suryakumar Yadav has finally managed to score some runs in this phase. Consequently, he will regain his confidence after his knock against Delhi and he will try to build on that as MI faces RR tomorrow.

Evin Lewis 9.5 Cr

This West Indian batsman has given his side destructive starts in the UAE phase of IPL 2021. Therefore I have selected him because if he manages to break free then it will become very difficult for Mumbai to stop him.

Jayant Yadav 8 Cr

The all rounder’s left arm spin and power-hitting will be valuable at Sharjah. So far MI have been unable to score runs in the middle overs, hence one could even see Jayant promote up the order and play a good cameo.
