Keep an eye on…
Jos Buttler: The Rajasthan Royals opener has 400 runs at an average of 80 against Mumbai Indians in the IPL and will be a key player for RR. He also hit a hundred against them earlier in the season.
Jasprit Bumrah: With their hopes for the playoffs done and dusted, Mumbai Indians should unleash Bumrah early in the game and look to attack Buttler before he is settled down at the wicket.
TIP: Jos Buttler has a terrific record against MI and in this season and has odds of 2.88 to score a half-century.
