Match 27 of the Vivo IPL 2019 would be played between the Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium. This would be an interesting match to watch out for since a win here for the Rajasthan Royals would offer them whole lot of confidence to stay in the tournament and expect a revival. While a win here for the Mumbai Indians would let them move further ahead in the table only next to the Chennai Super Kings.
Mumbai Indians Dug Out
The Mumbai Indians dug out is on a roll. In the previous encounter, the side led by Pollard is fresh and looking good to compete. The top order and middle order complements each other well. Surya Kumar Yadav has to come up to the occasion. Quinton de Kock should also steer the ship for the side in the absence of Rohit Sharma from the top. In the bowling department, Alzarri Joseph along with Bumrah looks to dismantle the opposition with their impressive performance. The inclusion of Jason Behrendorff had offered the Mumbai Indians the balance to their bowling. But again, their batting has to come up well and quick. If Pollard had not pushed the pedal in the previous game then it would have been curtains for Mumbai Indians in their last clash against the Kings XI Punjab.
Rajasthan Royals Dug Out
The Rajasthan Royals Dug out is confused. They are playing well only to get beaten by their opposition. Impressive cricket but in bits and pieces might not help them in their journey in the tournament. Consistency is another factor which is hurting them a lot. Rahul Tripathi has to bat upfront. He could even open the innings with Jos Buttler and Rahane could come at No.3 to offer good chance for Steve Smith at No.4. Samson and Stokes and 5 and 6 could enable Royals to turn themselves as a strong batting side. Their bowling towards the death is another concern. Archer is impressive but Stokes is going for runs.
According to Horary Astrological Indications, Rajasthan Royals has an upper hand in this contest and would emerge victorious against the Mumbai Indians.
