After finally managing to win their first match, the defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will look to continue their momentum when they lock horns against beleaguered hosts Rajasthan Royals (RR). The hosts were destroyed by Shane Watson’s brilliant century in the previous game and would need some time to recover from the massive defeat. Skipper Ajinkya Rahane needs to lead from the front and put confidence in his players. Despite having some big names, Royals need some momentum to get back on track. Big stars like Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, D’Arcy Short have failed to deliver. Here are Royals probable dream XI against MI.
RR: Ajinkya Rahane, Sanju Samson, Rahul Tripathi, Heinrich Klaasen, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Krishnappa Gowtham, Ben Laughlin, Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jaydev Unadkat.
The defending champions had a horrible start as they lost to CSK in a thrilling encounter. And after facing three consecutive defeats, MI manage to win their first match of the season thanks to skipper Rohit Sharma and Evin Lewis. Rohit was the reason behind the team breaking the run of losses and he is again going to be a key man for Mumbai Indians. Led by pacer Jasprit Bumrah, MI bowling attack looks good with likes of Mitchell McClenaghan, Hardik, Mustafizur Rahman, Mayank Markande and Krunal. Here we see the probable dream XI of MI.
MI: Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Aditya Tare, Rohit Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Adam Milne.
