Despite an early stutter from the Rajasthan Royals, they secured an easy six-wicket win over the Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday. Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal took 3 wickets each to restrict the five-time champions to 125-9 in 20 overs, while Riyan Parag hit an unbeaten 54. In the process, the Royals coast to their 3rd win of the season.

Rajasthan Royals were on song with the ball as they restricted hosts Mumbai Indians to a paltry 125-9 in the IPL 2024 clash at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday. Trent Boult's new-ball burst was too much for Mumbai to handle, with only four batters managing to reach double-figures. Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal were the pick of the bowlers with 3 scalps each.

Toss Update:

Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson opted to bowl first after winning the toss against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium in Match 14 of IPL 2024.

Unfortunately for Hardik Pandya, he was booed again by home fans in Mumbai at the toss. Chants of Rohit Sharma could be heard clearly when Pandya was speaking to Sanjay Manjrekar after he lost the toss.

Manjrekar in fact, had to ask the crowd to "behave" just before Samson flipped the coin as fans had started to boo Pandya.

The Mumbai Indians, under the leadership of the embattled Hardik Pandya, are set to confront a formidable challenge against the soaring Rajasthan Royals in their inaugural home match at the Wankhede Stadium, scheduled for Monday.

Following consecutive defeats against the Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad, the Mumbai Indians must shake off their persistent issues at the outset as they clash with the Sanju Samson-led Royals.

The Royals have exhibited impressive form, boasting an unblemished record with victories in both their encounters against the Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals.

Hardik Pandya faces scrutiny over his leadership, particularly concerning his bowling adjustments following the Mumbai Indians' struggle in containing the Sunrisers, who amassed a colossal 277 runs in Hyderabad.
