Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians

Indian Premier League 2020, Match 20

Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, UAE

RR vs MI: Who will win?

The defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on one of the strongest team of IPL 2020, Rajasthan Royals in the Tuesday encounter. Mumbai is coming off a win against SRH, whereas Rajasthan is coming off two straight losses. After moving out from Sharjah, they haven’t quite adapted well to the longer boundaries of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. That being said, MI who are on a roll, is expected to outcast the Rajasthan Royals due to their well-balanced team. So if you are in for online IPL betting, place your money on MI.

Strength

Mumbai Indians:

  • A highly potent top-order batting which has a blend of youth and experience.
  • A strong middle order with power-packed finishers.
  • All their three pacers have been pretty good in the early part of the innings.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • In Buttler, Smith, and Samson, they have one of the most dynamic top three that a T20 team could ever wish for.
  • Most of their players who bat in the lower middle order can be very handy with the bat. Players like Rahul Tewatia and Jofra Archer provides much greater batting depth to RR.
  • In Jofra Archer, they have one of the best T20 death over specialist.

Weakness

Mumbai Indians:

  • The spin department of Mumbai looks weak compared to the rest of the teams in IPL 2020.
  • Death bowling is a huge worry for MI, despite having Bumrah and Boult in their armoury, they have been pretty ordinary in that front.
  • Form of Surya Kumar Yadhav is a huge worry.

Rajasthan Royals:

  • RR’s bowling is a huge worry. Unadkat and the spinners need to step up their game.
  • RR’s Indian middle-order looks weak. If the top order doesn’t fire, then they are in very serious trouble.
  • RR doesn’t have a good enough spin attack to survive in Abu Dhabi.

Win Prediction

  • MI- 60%
  • RR- 40%

RR VS MI MATCH PREDICTION

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

  1. MI all-rounder Kieron Pollard is the form of his life. He should be your ideal captain or vice-captain choice.
  2. Jos Buttler is a consistent IPL performer. He is due for a big score in this IPL. Bet on him to deliver that today.
  3. Bumrah and Archer are probably the best white-ball bowlers in world cricket. Never leave them out of your fantasy teams.

RR vs MI Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

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

Top Batsman

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

Top Bowler

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

Most Sixes

MI- Kieron Pollard

RR- Jos Buttler

Player of the Match

Kieron Pollard

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.
