Match Preview:

The Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals are all set to lock horns at the Wankhede Stadium. Entering this fixture, the home side is coming in after a poor away result against the Gujarat Titans where their bowlers once again let them down. Whereas the Rajasthan Royals registered a stunning home win over the Chennai Super Kings and also completed the season double over the four-time champions.

Pitch Report:

The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai has been often touted as a batting paradise where teams can post massive totals. The short boundaries across the ground often make life difficult for bowlers. The average score here is 167.7 and the team batting second has a better chance to win the game. 

Team Analysis:

Mumbai Indians

The Mumbai Indians are desperate for a win to continue a hopeful playoff push in the 2023 IPL season. So far in the tournament, the MI batting has lived up to expectations with players Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Cameron Green and Suryakumar Yadav, scoring a lot of runs. But neutralising this batting effort, the Mumbai bowlers have been sub-par especially in the death bowling department, as they have conceded a lot of unnecessary runs leading to many losses.

Rajasthan Royals

On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royals have emerged as one of the title favourites despite a drop in form in the past few fixtures. The inaugural IPL champs got back to winning ways with a dominant performance against the Chennai Super Kings. The RR batting has been piling up a lot of runs with Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal carrying the majority of responsibility. Whereas with the ball, the likes of Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin have been terrorizing opposition players with consistent performances.
