In the 51st match of IPL 2021, there is a competition between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals. This match is very important for both the teams as one defeat can take both out of the race for the playoffs. In such a situation, if this match is called a match of do or die, then it will not be wrong. Mumbai Indians may have won the IPL title five times, but this season this team did not play with its strength. Captain Rohit Sharma himself also accepted this. At the same time, Rajasthan Royals made mistakes in choosing the playing XI and had to pay the brunt of it by defeat. Well now both the teams have 2-2 matches left and Mumbai-Rajasthan have to win both the matches.
It will not be easy for Mumbai Indians to take on Rajasthan Royals as this team has defeated Rohit & Co in 5 out of 7 matches. There have been 23 matches between both the teams and Mumbai has won 12 and Rajasthan has won 11.
pitch report- The match is in Sharjah and the batsmen have been troubled on the pitch here. The score of 130 to 140 runs is also enough here and the role of spinners is going to be very important once again. Interestingly, the performance of Mumbai Indians’ batsmen against spinners in the UAE leg of IPL 2021 has been very poor. The team has been able to collect only 6.11 runs per over against the spinners.
Mumbai’s Probable Playing XI– Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jayant Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult.
Probable playing XI of Rajasthan- Evin Lewis, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson, Shivam Dubey, Glenn Phillips, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Akash Singh, Mayank Markandey, Chetan Sakaria and Mustifizur Rahman.
