Rajasthan host Mumbai at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in their IPL 2018 encounter in Jaipur on Sunday.
Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (capt), Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan (wk), Kieron Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Mayank Markande, Mustafizur Rahman, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan. This match is the sixth match for RR and fifth match for MI in this IPL season.
Rajasthan Royals' skipper Ajinkya Rahane (L) and Mumbai Indians' captain captain Rohit Sharma (R). It is located in Jaipur. The fans will be able to watch the live match proceedings from 08:00 PM onwards.
As far as RR are concerned, I'm happy with Samson and Stokes as my cover. He even played a couple of matches in Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2018 before missing out due to injury.
While Hardik Pandya got off to a good start in the opening game, he has simply not been the same since. Mumbai has got only one victory so far. In comparison, Rajasthan Royals are better off in the points table but have trouble finding consistency with the bat as the combinations continues to shuffle about. Hence the spinners would fancy their chances in Jaipur- spotlight would be on Mayank Markande and Shreyas Gopal who have done a good job for MI and RR respectively. The smallest cricketing format extravangza happens every year. Captain Rohit Sharma who scored a scintillating 94 will be hoping his team can carry on the winning momentum.
Samson scored just 2 and 7 in the last two matches for Rajasthan and the team suffered badly, eventually losing both the contests.
