However, Mumbai is ending on the right side of things while Rajasthan Royals found themselves on the wrong side.

Rajasthan Royals did everything to put pressure on Chennai Super Kings, but, unfortunately, they failed to seal the victory in the end. Perhaps, it was the worst-ever over from Ben Stokes in his IPL career. When it required 18 runs off the final 6 deliveries, he just left the game from his hands to CSK.

As far as Rajasthan’s form goes, it’s two losses in a row now. After being hammered by the Knight Riders, they then lost out to CSK with the final ball of the game on Thursday. It was Ben Stokes, who was the culprit for Rajasthan Royals. He gave away 18 runs off his final 6 balls.

Changes:

Rohit Sharma should be fine for Mumbai Indians. He would return to the playing XI while Siddhesh Lad is the certain candidate to miss out. Yuvraj Singh could also return in place of Ishan Kishan. For Rajasthan Royals, we might not see any changes unless they think Krishnappa Gowtham is required.
