MI vs RR IPL: After a brilliant confidence encouraging win in their last match, Rajasthan Royals (RR) are all geared up to take on the Mumbai Indians (MI) in their sixth game of the IPL 2021 season at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on April 29. Rajasthan Royals registered a superb win against Kolkata in their last game but they have won two and lost three in the tournament so far. However, just like their opponents, the Sanju Samson-led RR team will be looking for a change in fortunes with the change in venue as they will be playing their next four league matches in Delhi.
The Rajasthan Royals are very much struggling with the casualties in their squad in these testing circumstances as their four overseas players, Jofra Archer, Ben Stokes, Liam Livingstone and Andrew Tye have already been ruled out for the entire season. Their newest recruit Rassie van der Dussen will not be available for this game as he is yet to complete his mandatory quarantine period. Thus, they have no choice than to play Jos Buttler, David Miller, Chris Morris and Mustafizur Rahman as their four overseas players. Rajasthan Royals are likely to go unchanged for this match against MI.
