Match Details

Venue: Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi

Toss: Mumbai Indians elect to field first

Points Table Standings: Indians 4th (4 points/5 games) | Royals 7th (4 points/5 games)

Head-to-Head: 22 matches – Indians 11 | Royals 11

Rajasthan Royals have won four of their five recent games against defending champions but there’s nothing to separate these two teams in H-2-H record. However, it is just a matter of time Mumbai Indians batting starts clicking.

Pitch Report

Spinners will have their say on this Delhi wicket but not as much as they had in Chennai. The game is likely to be played on one of the slower tracks. However, shorter boundaries and the presence of better power-hitters in MI and RR should make this a high-scoring affair. Team winning the toss will probably look to bat first and put runs on the board.

Par score: 180
