The game will serve as a knockout fixture for both teams as the winner will just about stay alive in the race for the playoffs whereas the losing side’s tournament will come to an end. As things stand, the Royals and Mumbai have 10 points each after 12 matches played.

Rajasthan Royals Form and Team News: 

After registering a much-needed win against an in-form Chennai Super Kings side, the Rajasthan Royals will enter Tuesday’s contest in good spirits and they are unlikely to make any significant changes in the playing XI. 

The most encouraging aspect for the management will be the performance of the young batters, who showcased their talent in the previous outing while chasing a mammoth target, that too in a must-win match. 

In the batting department, the Royals will be relying on the likes of captain Sanju Samson, hard-hitting opener Evin Lewis, in-form Shivam Dube, New Zealand’s Glenn Phillips and South Africa’s explosive left-hander David Miller to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Mustafizur Rahman, Akash Singh, Chetan Sakariya and leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia to produce timely breakthroughs and restrict the opposition to a reasonable total.

Mumbai Indians Form and Team News: 

After suffering a demoralizing four-wicket defeat against Delhi Capitals in the previous fixture, Mumbai Indians will enter the contest against the Rajasthan Royals with low confidence. 

The most concerning aspect for the management will be the team’s overall form since the tournament resumed in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where the defending champions have just won once in five outings and suffered four defeats. Therefore, some changes in the playing XI for the next match cannot be ruled out. 

In the batting department, Mumbai will be relying on the likes of captain Rohit Sharma, wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary along with hard-hitting all-rounders Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal Pandya to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pollard along with the left-arm spin of Krunal to dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup.
