The first double header of second leg of the league will be starting today with noon match played between MI taking on RR. It will be 24th match of the tournament which will be played in Delhi on 29th April 2021.
Mumbai Indians aren’t in a fine touch, despite of having strong batting line up and competent bowling attack they still won only two matches out of 5 with having 4 points in their name and net run rate of -0.032 spotting themselves at 4th spot in the points table.
The Defending Champions are in a stage of lack in batting depth. Loss of form by middle order line creating a loophole in the franchise while even the all rounders like Pandya Brothers and Kieron Pollard also needs to step forward now. One more loss can create more trouble to the franchise while a win will make themselves stand on the same spot 4th position.
On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals who has been in a sinking boat right now with only two wins from five matches with spotting themselves at 7th position in the points table and having awful net run rate of -0.681. Right now, Men In Pink is the only team who is having the worst net run rate in the tournament yet.
With the exclusion of their star overseas players, now they have only four overseas players in their squad and they have to keep them for remaining matches. Situation is worse for SanjuSamson’s Army. If they lose now it will effect their net run rate more and will put them in pale qualification stage for playoffs.
Positive point is Jos Buttler having the best strike rate of 175+ and average of 86+ against Mumbai Indians can be a really good stats for the upcoming match.
Head to Head
Both played 23 matches yet and both the teams has won 11-11 matches each yet.
Now let’s see who is going to take lead in the tournament, Is it No.4 Team or No.7 Team.
