RR vs MI IPL 2024 Match 38 Match Ups

Jos Buttler played an innings in the last match that only few players can play. The England International scored a brilliant century and guided his team to an unlikely victory, from an improbable situation. It was the 6th win for the Royals this season. They are the best team in the league at the moment, sitting at the top of the points table.

Mumbai Indians also clocked a win in their last match. It was their third win in four games and the five-time IPL champions now sit 6th on the points table. But MI have some chinks in their armour. Bowling beyond Bumrah and batters except Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan must step up and contribute to the team’s cause on a more consistent basis.

The coming RR vs MI clash on Monday will be the 30th match between these two teams in the IPL. Mumbai Indians are slightly ahead with 15 wins as compared to Rajasthan Royals’ 13 wins. One match has ended without a result.
