MI vs RR IPL: The defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) have now arrived at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi for their next four important league matches starting with this game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on April 29. The Rohit Sharma-led MI team had a difficult time during their Chennai-leg of games having registered two wins out of five matches so far in IPL 2021. However, the Mumbai Indians will surely be hoping to do well at this new venue and they will be backing their experienced players like Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya to come to the party in the next set of matches.
With a change in venue and conditions, it is very much unlikely that the Mumbai Indians will play 3 spinners on this Delhi track. Therefore, they are likely to bring in one of Marco Jansen or Adam Milne possibly in place of Jayant Yadav to add an extra pace option in the bowling attack. The rest of the side is expected to be the same for this game.
