MI vs RR who will Emerge Victorious today?
RR has been hard hit by injuries & the COVID-19 situation with four of their key players remaining unavailable for selection. Defying all the odds, RR amazed its fans in their previous match against KKR at the Wankhede Stadium by displaying a clinical performance to keep themselves alive in the Playoffs Race.
RR’s Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya & Mustafizur Rahman all bowled some tight deliveries right from the start of the match to keep the match under their control. After restricted KKR for 133/9, RR chased down the target easily with sheer support of Captain Sanju Samson playing a steady knock & finishing the match along with David Miller.
MI on the other hand had a tough time on a slow Chennai track where they played five matches of the tournament. They must prepare to play on a similar kind of surface as pitch in Delhi is similar to Chepauk pitch. Mumbai Indians’ middle order is yet to perform with Krunal, Hardik Pandya & Ishan Kishan having a poor campaign with the bat.
However, Mumbai Indians will look to bounce back & get back their winning streak in today’s clash against RR. Whereas according to the previous stats RR has a good record against the MI squad & they will look to continue their run of resurgent performances.
MI vs RR Match Prediction:
Though RR has been clinical even with their injury hit depleted squad, they don’t match up to the might of Mumbai Indians team. Fresh after a good six days break & upgraded with new strategies & plots, Mumbai Indians will be looking forward to seal victory in today’s clash.
