Mumbai Indians hope for better bowling performance from key players
- Rajasthan Royals inspire confidence with their stellar batting order
- Mumbai Indians need Jasprit Bumrah to hit top gear
Mumbai Indians have a strong bowling line-up on paper and have odds of 1.72 to beat Rajasthan Royals in what should be a very interesting contest between the two sides. It’ll not be easy for Mumbai, though, with Rajasthan having a strong top-order and exceptional new ball quality.
Rajasthan Royals, meanwhile, will back themselves to jinx Mumbai Indians again, something they quite like doing. They have a strong new ball attack, led by former Mumbai star, Trent Boult, and will back themselves to test the Mumbai batting line-up. Their chances of winning this one stand at 2.09
Rajasthan Royals among the rare teams to test Mumbai
Rajasthan Royals have a formidable record against Mumbai, beating them 12 times and losing 14 games in head to head contests. They have especially been good chasing down targets against Mumbai, winning 10 of the 16 matches when chasing.
Rajasthan Royals have a better all-round side despite Mumbai’s dominance in the league and we believe they can win this one.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The game will hinge on how Mumbai’s bowlers go against Rajasthan’s top batters. With Jasprit Bumrah having an off day, Mumbai struggled against Delhi Capitals and it could be more of the same if he doesn’t hit the straps against Rajasthan.
Keep an eye on…
Jos Buttler: Jos Buttler will fancy his chances against a pace-heavy Mumbai Indians line-up. Not only are MI reliant on Bumrah, but Buttler also has a good record against quicks with high pace and could thrive this match.
Ishan Kishan: He looked in fabulous touch in the first game and will be key for Mumbai Indians if they are to put up big totals this tournament. With Suryakumar Yadav’s availability uncertain, Kishan will be the trump card for MI.
TIP: The MI attack suits Jos Buttler. You can back Butler at 3.14 to make a fifty.
