Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals 02/04/2022

Teams Status

Mumbai Indians Form and Team News:

The franchise  will be extremely concerned with the performance of the bowlers in the match against the Capitals where the most experienced one in the side — Jasprit Bumrah — ended up conceding 43 runs in just 3.2 overs without taking a single wicket.

Another high-profile bowling option Daniel Sams conceded 57 runs in just four overs at an economy-rate of over 14 runs per over.

Those numbers are just not good enough for any team to succeed in an event like IPL and the coaching staff will be hoping for better performance in the matches to come.

Sams’ performance in the previous outing might pave way for the selection of Fabian Allen in the starting XI for the game on Saturday.

Despite a disappointing show from the bowling department, the batting looks alright and there will be big hopes from the likes of Tim David, who came in with a reputation of a big hitter after his heroics in the Pakistan Super League for Multan Sultans.

Rajasthan Royals Form and Team News:

The most pleasing thing for the management would be that without any player playing a big knock, the team managed to post a mammoth total of 210 where the highest score was from captain Sanju Samson who scored 55 off just 27 balls.

The bowling afterwards looked million dollars as well where the likes of Trent Boult, Prasidh Krishna, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal showed that they are more than enough to get the better of any opposition on a given day.

The coaching staff would be hopeful that the team would continue similar kinds of momentum in the matches to come in order to cement their place in the playoffs.
