RR VS MI Match Preview:
 

In-form Mumbai Indians will take on inconsistent Rajasthan Royals. 

MI has been in excellent touch in the last couple of matches. All the batsmen have now started to click, the latest being Quinton de Kock. de Kock scored a match-winning half-century in the last match against SRH. Their batting line up is shaping up pretty well with Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard consistently giving the finish the team requires. 

Mumbai Indians' bowlers defended their score in Sharjah, giving a glimpse of their form currently. Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah are the two key bowlers the opposition needs to take care of. Rahul Chahar has been impressive as well. It is unlikely that captain Rohit Sharma will change the winning combination in this match. 

Rajasthan Royals started their tournament on a high but have been inconsistent since then. Their batting hasn't been in the best of form and as captain Steve Smith mentioned at the end of their last game against RCB, their top 3 batsmen need to score runs. There is a case of Manan Vohra coming in for out of form Robin Uthappa in the middle order. 

Apart from Jofra Archer, other bowlers have failed to make an impression and are consistently leaking runs at the other end. Jaydev Unadkat might get replaced by Ankit Rajpoot in this match. 

Both the teams have been on each other's throat throughout the IPL seasons. However, considering the current form of the teams, Mumbai Indians look a better side than Rajasthan Royals.
