High-flying Mumbai Indians will be looking to continue their winning run when they host misfiring Rajasthan Royals. Mumbai Indians are brimming with confidence at the moment after beating Chennai Super Kings , Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab in their previous three games. The three-time finalists seem to have hit the top gear after a slow start and will look to continue the form against a team which has won just one of its first six games.
Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and decided to field first against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in the twenty-seventh match of this year’s Indian Premier League.
Here is what the captains said:
“It’s a 4 o’clock game, so there will be bit more for the spinners. We’ve been on a roll for a while now and we’ve to keep continuing. I missed the last match because of a precautionary measure. One change: I come in and Siddhesh misses out unfortunately.”
“We’ve been playing good cricket except the KKR game. Stokes is injured, and Liam Livingstone is playing. Gowtham is back for us.”
