The 27th match of the Indian Premier League will see a game being played between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in the regular season on Saturday.
Mumbai Indians are in the 3rd spot in the league table and have been a superb team. They have won the IPL three times in history, and cannot be overlooked at all by anyone. The franchise has proven time and again that it is not the start but the finish that defines them, as they have racked up four wins in 6 games played. A few more wins will seal their berth in the playoff spot.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have been arguably the most unlucky team in the IPL so far. They can’t catch a break at all, as all of their games have gone down the wire. So much so, they have won only once and it is a blow to the confidence of the players. The management has to do something about this trend, and a killer instinct needs to be developed which doesn’t let the opposition get in the game.
