  • RR vs MI Dream11 Prediction: Well, it has been just another season of domination so far if you are Mumbai Indians. With 7 wins from 10 matches, they are very close to adding ‘Q’ against their name in the points table. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have again been the team of individuals this year. Even 3 wins from next 3 matches won’t guarantee them a spot in the play-offs. We will preview RR vs MI Dream11 contest.

    In the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals batting looked like a machine with limited fuel. After losing Robin Uthappa early, Sanju Samson was looking in great touch for a while in a partnership with Ben Stokes. But star English all-rounder struggled to gather any momentum at the other end. He made only 30 after wasting 32 crucial deliveries at the top. Once Jos Buttler was back in the hut cheaply, RR were always going to post a below par total. Some handy blows at the end by Riyan Parag and Jofra Archer took them to 154. In reply, Jofra Archer dismissed both SRH openers in his first two overs and gave RR a rollicking start. But others failed to complement as Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar put on a match-winning partnership for SRH.

    Mumbai Indians played out a perfect mismatch in their last game against CSK at Sharjah. Bowling first, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult displayed impeccable execution with the new ball to reduce CSK to 6 for 30. CSK never recovered from that early damage and managed to put only 114 runs. Trent Boult was the main destructor with 4 scalps for MI. In reply, Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan made sure that CSK hadn’t been allowed to have any chances of making a comeback. Ishan Kishan relished his time as an opener with an unbeaten 68 while Quinton de Kock supported him with 46* to complete the hammering by 10 wickets.

    In head-to-head comparisons, there is nothing much to choose between these two sides as MI are marginally ahead with a lead of 12-11 against the Royals. RR have been more dominant team surprisingly in recent 5 matches by winning 4 of them. In the first meeting this year though, MI overcame RR comfortably at the same venue.  

    Pitch and Conditions

    Scores have remained on the lower side here in recent matches apart from an exception from KKR last afternoon. Same pitch will be used from yesterday’s game and that gave signs of slowing up during the second innings. We have also seen some early movement here with the new ball, the spell from Mohammed Siraj here being the recent example. So, it won’t be a bad toss to lose for any of the captains.

    RR vs MI Dream11 Team Prediction

    Let’s take a look at the squad news and RR Vs MI Dream11 predictions for today’s encounter.

    Rajasthan Royals Team News

    • Rajasthan Royals are unlikely to make any changes even after the loss in the last match.
    • Jos Buttler is expected to bat at the top today along with Robin Uthappa. Sanju Samson and Steve Smith will continue to play middle order roles.
    • Ben Stokes is more profitable to this RR setup in the middle order rather than at the top. Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia are handy options to have in the death overs.
    • Jofra Archer is bowling with some wheels at the moment but RR’s problems start beyond his overs. Ankit Rajpoot and Kartik Tyagi will have to do much better than the last match. Shreyas Gopal will be their specialist spinner in RR vs MI Dream11 prediction.

    Mumbai Indians Team News

    • Mumbai Indians are likely to go unchanged as Rohit Sharma has still not recovered from hamstring injury.
    • Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock did a brilliant job in the last game and they will continue as openers today also. Suryakumar Yadav has been in decent form while Saurabh Tiwary played well when he was given opportunities in first couple of matches this season.
    • Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard are dangerous players in the lower order to say the least. Krunal Pandya has been used in more than just one role through the course.
    • Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah with the new ball is a mouthwatering prospect from MI’s perspective while Nathan Coulter-Nile has played the supporting act well. Rahul Chahar has provided much needed control to back up the fast bowlers.

    MI Playing 11 (Probable)

    RR vs MI Dream 11 Prediction Today Cricket Match

    WK: Quinton de Kock, Ishan Kishan, Jos Buttler
    Batsmen: Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Steve Smith
    All-rounders: Ben Stokes
    Bowlers: Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal

    Captain Picks

    For Small Leagues

    • Quinton de Kock has turned corners with his recent form after a poor start to the season. He is MI’s leading run-scorer with 368 runs from 10 games. He is coming off fresh from his 46* in the last game against CSK on Friday. Only thing he needs to care today is his match-up against Shreyas Gopal.
    • Jasprit Bumrah is an ever reliable captaincy pick from Mumbai. He is second on the list of highest wicket-takers with 17 scalps. His full range was on display against CSK in the last match and if Kieron Pollard continues to give him the new cherry, he can be a lethal prospect.
    • The quality of fast-bowling that is on show today is immense. Jofra Archer is a straight-forward choice from Rajasthan Royals. He has bowled some of most skillful new ball spells of the season. With 15 wickets to his name so far, he will be eager to go one up against Jasprit Bumrah today.

    For Grand Leagues

    • Ishan Kishan is a logical pick on current form but squad dimensions may play a part to his fantasy potentials. If Rohit Sharma comes in, he will have to move down and that will affect his game time. He slammed a blistering 68 against CSK but his performance today will depend mostly on how he plays Jofra Archer to begin with.
    • Jos Buttler is likely to bat in top 3 today as RR lacked intent in their last outing against SRH. Once back at the top, he will become an automatic choice for any of your leagues. He made 70 against his former team in the first fixture this season at the same venue.
    • Shreyas Gopal can be a differential option today as he enjoys plenty of favourable match-ups against MI. He has good records against Ishan Kishan, Quinton de Kock and Hardik Pandya. He took 2-28 against MI earlier on the same Abu Dhabi surface.

    Who will win RR vs MI Today Match Prediction?

    As per our RR vs MI Today Match Prediction, Mumbai Indians are primed to win this clash against Rajasthan Royals. MI have been ruthless as usual and clearly have the most balanced side in the competition. Rajasthan have their issues in both the departments and will have to win every game from here to give them a chance to qualify for the play-offs.
