Mumbai Indians to win the match
Head to Head (overall)
Rajasthan Royals are the only team to beat Mumbai Indians consecutively in the last two-year history of the IPL. But despite such stats favouring the Royals, they will start as underdogs against the defending champions. After securing thumping wins in both the matches held in Sharjah, the Royals shattered like a piece of glass in their last two matches. They showed great incapability in adapting to the longer boundaries of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. If that case continues then they are in very serious trouble. Ben Stokes who has reached the UAE will have to be in six days mandatory quarantine, and he will miss this match. Apart from that, the only change expected is Yashaswi Jaiswal replacing the out of form Robin Uthappa.
MI has a strong well-balanced team. Their only concern was regarding the form of all-rounder Krunal Pandya. With him getting back to form, all their problems are sorted out. They are not expected to make any changes to their eleven.
MI Playing 11: Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, James Pattinson, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
RR Playing 11: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Steve Smith, Mahipal Lomror, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Tom Curran, Jaydev Unadkat, Shreyas Gopal
Expert free tip for fantasy cricket and IPL betting tips
The UAE conditions still haven’t given any clue to the captains on what to expect from each surface. Dew is a major factor of concern that’ll prompt teams to field first. But the point to be noted is that most matches, even more than 80% of them were won by teams batting first. Considering the line-ups of both the teams anything above 170 seems to be a good enough score.
If Rajasthan Royals bats first: 160-170
If Mumbai Indians bats first: 170-180
Players who are expected to perform well as per Dream11 Prediction.
MI- Kieron Pollard
The big West Indian is in the form of his life. In all the matches that he had got an opportunity to bat, he has served full justice to the team by providing match-winning innings' that suits the situation. As for IPL betting tips, he is the man to invest your money in.
RR- Steve Smith
With the longer boundaries in place, the anchor Steve Smith will play a more important role than ever for RR. With his team now going under the radar, he needs to step up big time.
Other prominent options: Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Rohit Sharma
MI- Jasprit Bumrah
Boom Boom Bumrah is back to his absolute best. Expect him to continue the same.
RR- Jofra Archer
One man in the RR bowling attack that can break through this strong MI batting line-up is RR's Jofra Archer. If he gets going, then MI doesn't stand a chance.
Other prominent options: Trent Boult, James Pattinson, Tom Curran
MI- Kieron Pollard
RR- Jos Buttler
Player of the Match
With Hardik not fit to bowl, Polly is expected to bowl few overs with the ball. That added with his current form with the bat makes him the ideal choice for the ‘Player of the Match' category.
