MI vs RR Dream11 Tips for Match 21 IPL Today Match Prediction 29 April


Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Dream11: The first of the two games scheduled today will be played between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Both teams have managed two wins in five outings so far and are desperately looking to gain some momentum in the ongoing edition.

The defending champions Mumbai Indians are sitting fourth in the table and will be hoping for some change in fortune with the venue. After struggling at the sluggish Chennai wicket, the five-time champions are set to play the next four games in Delhi – another sluggish wicket on which they haven’t liked playing too much. It will be really interesting to watch how they adapt to these situations. Apart from the conditions, MI will also be worried about the out-of-form middle-order which hasn’t clicked much in the five games so far. Hardik Pandya, K Pollard, and K Pandya haven’t look in touch so far in the tournament which has been one of the main reasons for not being able to take an edge over the opposition.

On the other hand, things are getting worse for Rajasthan Royals. They started off their campaign without the key bowler Jofra Archer and dealt a huge blow in the first game itself after Ben Stokes fractured his thumb. Recently, two of their foreign players pulled out of the tournament citing personal reasons, and now they are left with limited options to influx some momentum in their otherwise going down campaign. The 6 wickets win over Kolkata Knight Riders, however, must have boosted the morale of the Royals who are sitting at bottom second position.

Let’s see who tackles the challenges of the slow-wicket in Delhi and manages to cross the line. The clash will begin at 03:30 PM IST.

MI vs RR Today Match Prediction Details

Fixture name: 21st Match, Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals

Competition: Vivo IPL 2021

Date: 29 April

Time: 03:30 PM IST

Ground: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi

Pitch Report: The pitches in Delhi are usually slow as compared to Mumbai but slightly better than Chennai when it comes to batting. It is a venue that suits both sides alike – batsmen and bowlers. While the pacers can use the change of pace spinners too are likely to get some aid. We saw last night Rashid Khan picking up 3 wickets. However, as this is an afternoon game, the team winning the toss is expected to bat first as there will be no dew in the second innings.
