The Rajasthan Royals face the Mumbai Indians on Tuesday in a game that could have huge implications for the two teams’ attempt to claim fourth and final playoff spot.
With RR and MI tied for 10 points after 12 games, this is essentially a contest up for grabs, and the loser will say goodbye to hopes of moving on to the next stage.
The two teams enter the contest on different notes, with Rajasthan winning their last contest, while Mumbai suffered a 4 wicket loss, thanks to league leaders Delhi Capitals.
In RR’s previous match, youngsters Shivam Dube and Yashasvi Jaiswal starred as Sanju Samson’s side chased a significant 189 target to defeat Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets.
CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad scored a century in the game, and thanks to his exploits, RR was faced with a rather intimidating chase.
However, the opening duo of Evin Lewis and Jaiswal got them off to a good start, before Dube showed great poise and skill to guide them to the finish line.
Meanwhile, Mumbai were quite disappointing in their loss to Delhi and were only able to concede a total of 129.
Delhi continued this in 19.1 overs, and even though the table tops took their time and lost a few wickets along the way, they never really looked like they were losing the game.
