Time is running out of for Rajasthan Royals and they should have planned the chase better against Kings XI Punjab and now will have to win all the match from here onwards to stay in connected with playoffs as the challenge will be tough and strong as they were hosted by Mumbai Indians at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
Rajasthan Royals will face Mumbai Indians for Match 36, Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur for VIVO IPL 2019.
Mumbai Indians were on the roll and won six matches out of nine matches conducted in this season and took the place of the second position in the points table. They were in a boosting stage as they won against Delhi Capitals with the 40 run chase though the Royals have given them tough competition over the last couple of years and Rohit Sharma’s men would love the break.
On the other hand, Ajinkya REahane moved down the order as Rahul Tripathi opened the innings but he came out of four when the team needed 86 off 50 balls which question marked his performance and teammates were not so happy.
The Rajasthan Royals were unlikely to make any changes but there might be a change in the batting order of them. Rahul Tripathi will continue to open while the skipper Ajinkya Rahane should look to bat at three and drop Sanju Samson at four. They can promote the likes of Turner and Binny up the order who can tonk the ball from the word go on.
Mumbai Indians won the previous game but they will definitely make changes to their line up for their encounter and Ishan Kishan may come into the eleven once of he is fit into the place of Jayanth Yadav. The Ben Cutting failed against Delhi Capitals failed as he didn’t bowl well which leaves a second thought them in bringing new bowler Jason Behendroff and the rest of team is likely to be the same.
The probable eleven players for Rajasthan Royals was Jos Buttler, Rahul Tripathi, Ajinkya Rahane (c), Sanju Samson (wk), Ashton Turner, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat, Ish Sodhi.
The probable eleven players for Mumbai Indians was Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Lasith Malinga, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Ben Cutting/Jason Behrendorff.
