Mumbai Indians (MI) will step onto the field once again looking for their maiden win on the occasion of their skipper Rohit Sharma’s birthday against the tournament favorites Rajasthan Royals at DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
Rajasthan Royals (RR)
Rajasthan has played the best cricket since the inaugural IPL and this can be attributed to their formidable bowling unit and the phenomenal batting by Jos Buttler. Buttler is on route to breaking Kohli’s record of 973 runs and 4 hundred in a season as he is already at the halfway stage.
Whereas, Rajasthan’s bowling, led by Purple cap holder Yuzi Chahal, has ensured that the team is successful in defending totals. Rajasthan are close to qualifying for the playoffs and a win today would make them a step closer to guaranteeing a spot.
Mumbai Indians (MI)
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for MI. The most successful team in the competition is having a torrid time this season as they are still looking for their maiden win. But the problem is that when their batting clicks, their bowling disappoints, and when their bowling clicks, their batsmen fail to live up to expectations.
Mumbai have tried all possible combination for their bowling lineup but nothing seems to be working. They don’t have a world-class spinner in their lineup. Further, the poor form of Rohit and Kishan has amplified problems for the Indians.
WAGING ODDS: MI (2.00) VS RR (1.83)
RR are the favorites and are priced at 1.83, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹183.
MI are underdogs and are priced at 2.00 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹200.
The way MI and RR have played in this tournament looks like the skipper Rohit Sharma’s birthday would not be a memorable one as Rajasthan is expected to win the contest.
