MI Off To A Steady Start vs RR

IPL 2018 Indian Premier League MI vs RR Rajasthan Royals Mumbai Indians sports news IPL news cricket Indian Express

The match will take place at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. "The ultimate dream is to represent India and that is still there", Pandya said on the eve of Mumbai Indians' IPL XI match against Rajasthan Royals.

Mumbai's opponent, Rajasthan will also come with high confidence, having registered two back-to-back wins against KXIP and CSK, thanks to two fantastic knocks of 82 and 95 not out from English wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler. Ajinkya Rahane, who is in poor form, will have to perform better.

The likes of Sanju Samson, Stuart Binny and Rahul Tripathi need to chip in and aid Buttler. For Mumbai Indians- eyes will be on the Pandya brothers, Jasprit Bumrah and Mayank Markande who have been doing phenomenal for the Mumbai Indians. Ben Stokes was promoted to open the batting in last game but even that gamble failed. We have D'Arcy Short coming in. He can get MI off to the sort of fast start that is so crucial in T20 cricket and RR must look for a way to take his wicket early on. The live streaming of IPL match MI vs RR will also be available on Hotstar and JioTV. You can watch it both via telecast and streaming on television and computers/mobiles respectively.

After a shocking start to their campaign, the defending champions Mumbai Indians have roared back into form with 4 wins in their last 5 games and now find themselves at the 5th spot.

Mumbai: Rajasthan Royals won the toss and elected to field. Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians have no choice but to bat in the first innings of the game.


With Star India now acquiring the media rights from Sony Pictures Network India for the upcoming season, the matches will be telecast on various Star Sports channels.

The good thing for Mumbai is the fact that they don't have to over rely on any player unlike Rajasthan.

What are the team squads for the IPL 2018 match between Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals?

Rajasthan Royals make three changes - D'Arcy Short, Shreyas Gopal and Dhawal Kulkarni for Ish Sodhi [unwell], Prashant Chopra and Anureet Singh.
