Mumbai Indians would like to carry on with the momentum:
Currently, Mumbai Indians are on a song in the tournament. They won their last three games by clinching thrillers against Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab.
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.
So far, both teams are being involved in neck-to-neck games irrespective of the result. However, without any ray of a doubt, Mumbai Indians will head into the game as favourites to win the game. In between, Rajasthan would like to give their everything in the game.
