RR vs MI Today Match Prediction & Tips

Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

Rajasthan Royals will play Mumbai Indians in the 38th match of the IPL 2024. The game will be played at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 22nd.

Rajasthan Royals have been the best team of the tournament so far. They are placed at the top of the table with six wins and just one defeat in seven matches. Their only defeat came against Gujarat Titans, however, that was a game they dominated for most part. The Royals look a brute force as each and every player has made a significant contribution to the team’s juggernaut. 

Meanwhile, MI have struggled to play best cricket. The team has lost four crucial matches and need a few back to back wins to have realistic chance of playoff qualification. MI have a strong team but somehow the team does not looks on the same page. Maybe the Hardik Pandya-Rohit Sharma captaincy change has something to do with it but the team has looked off colour. Another major concern for MI has been the lack of support for Jasprit Bumrah. While the ace Indian pacer has been outstanding, other bowlers have been hammered.

RR vs MI Pitch Report

The pitch at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur is batting friendly. The new ball has done a bit but short boundaries and quick outfield has ensured that players have caught up with the run rate when the ball stops moving. Spinners have got some help though and can be the game changers. 

Jaipur Weather Report

It will be a humid evening with temperature hovering around high 20s. The humidity will be 22 per cent and the wind speed will be 12 kmph. There is a 10 per cent chance of rain.

RR Team News & Playing 11

RR Team News

Kuldeep Sen has struggled a bit in the last couple of games but Rajasthan Royals should not be worried as other players have more than made up for it, however, there is Navdeep Saini in the dugout and it won’t be a bad move to test him now with playoff berth almost confirmed. Kuldeep can be kept as an impact player if Saini is picked in playing XI.

RR Key Players

  • Jos Butter- Jos Buttler had a slow start to his campaign but he has peaked at the right moment for the RR. He has scored two match winning centuries in the last few games and now looks unstoppable. Butter has scored 250 runs in the IPL 2024.
  • Sanju Samson- Sanju Samson has been terrific as well. He has come in at difficult situations and played captain’s knocks to put the team back on top. Samson has looked confident and assured and it has helped the team in more than one way. Sanju Samson has scored 276 runs in seven games this season.
  • Riyan Parag- Riyan Parag has also taken the tournament by storm. He has been outstanding and played a significant role in RR maintaining their winning run. During initial games, RR lost Jaiswal and Buttler early and were in pressure but Parag came in and changed the complexion of the game. Parag has scored 318 runs so far.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal- With 12 wickets in 7 games, Chahal is the leading wicket-taker for RR. He has bowled in difficult situations and came out with flying colours, getting crucial wickets for his team.

RR Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Rovman Powell, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Shubham Dubey, Nandre Burger, Navdeep Saini/Kuldeep Saini

In a chase, Rajasthan Royals will use Rovman Powell due to his finishing abilities while Navdeep Saini or Kuldeep Singh, whoever is selected as an impact player, can be used if they need a bowler.

RR Team Form

RR have played the best cricket so far, winning six out of the seven games.

RR Predicted Playing 11

Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Shimron Hetmyer, Dhruv Jurel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Sen/Navdeep Saini, Avesh Khan

MI Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

We do feel it is time for Mumbai Indians to play Nuwan Tushara in the playing XI. The bowling has struggled and they need to bolster their attack against a class RR outfit. We see Mohammed Nabi making way for Tushara in the next game.

MI Key Players

  • Rohit Sharma- Rohit Sharma has been magnificent at the top. Rohit scored a century against CSK and he has multiple cameos to his name in the tournament as well. Overall, he has scored 297 runs thus a big innings might be loading again.
  • Suryakumar Yadav- It has been a strange comeback for Surya. The batter has played four games and scored fifties in two games while ducks in other two matches. Surya, however, scored a scintillating 78 on a tough wicket against PBKS in the last outing. He is the most important batter in the MI team.
  • Jasprit Bumrah- Bumrah has lived up to the GOAT status he has achieved. Even when other bowlers have been whacked, with teams posting 250+ scores, Bumrah has maintained an economy of less than 6. He has also taken 13 wickets for MI which is just outstanding.
  • Gerald Coetzee- Gerald Coetzee has been taken for a few runs but he has made up for it by picking crucial wickers. Coetzee has taken 12 wickets in 7 games for MI.

MI Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Akash Madhwal, Mohammad Nabi, Piyush Chawla, Naman Dhir, Kumar Kartikeya

Naman Dhir is a good option if MI need a batter while Chawla can be used if MI need a bowler as conditions will favour spinners. 

MI Team Form

MI have blown hot and cold. They have played seven games, winning three and losing four.

MI Predicted Playing 11

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Romario Shepherd, Nuwan Tushara, Gerald Coetzee, Shreyas Gopal, Jasprit Bumrah

RR vs MI Head to Head

RR vs MI Betting Odds

Rajasthan Royals are getting the favourites tag. RR are playing at home. Also, they have been the best team so far thus RR are clear favourites.

Who will win Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians T20 Match?

We suggest backing Rajasthan Royals to win. RR have blown away every team that has come against them. They just don’t seem to have any weakness at the moment thus if they can play Bumrah cautiously, RR can continue the winning run against MI as well. 

🏆 RR vs MI Prediction

Rajasthan Royals are clear favourites to win. Rajasthan Royals look a much more balanced team and most of the players are in great form. For MI, they seem to have a lot of loopholes. The batters have got starts but not converted them into big scores. Also, barring Bumrah and Coetzee, bowlers have been hammered so we feel that Rajasthan Royals have a good chance of winning. Also, they defeated MI not so long ago in IPL 2024.
