Jaipur, April 20, Saturday at 04:00 PM IST
Rajasthan Royals will be looking to double over Mumbai Indians when they host the arch-rivals at their fortress Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur. When both the times last met in Wankhede, Royals registered a convincing 4 wickets win over the hosts and would be looking to repeat something similar.
Placed bottom-second in the ladder, Rajasthan Royals have managed just two wins in eight games so far. While their chances to finish off in the top four places is almost negligible, the side will be looking to win as many games possible to fancy their chances.
On the opposite, Mumbai Indians are in excellent form and have secured five wins in the last six fixtures with the only defeat coming against Rajasthan Royals. With six wins and three defeats in nine outings, Mumbai Indians are comfortably sitting at the second spot and would be eyeing to avenge their home-loss.
Both the sides have locked horns 22 times in which Mumbai Indians have secured 11 wins and Rajasthan Royals have secured 10 wins while one encounter ended in a no result. So, a cracker of a game is expected at Sawai Man Singh Stadium tonight.
