MI vs RR. (Source -IPL)

The Indian Premier League 2024 travels to the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai as the five-time champions Mumbai Indians are all set to take on Rajasthan Royals in the 14th game of the tournament on Monday, April 1. The campaign has not been a good one so far for Mumbai Indians. 

The Hardik Pandya-led side has played two games in the tournament so far, and they have managed to lose both. With two losses in two matches, the side currently sits in 10th place in the IPL 2024 standings with zero points and a net run rate of -0.925.

On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals find themselves on a completely different end of the spectrum. Having played two games in the tournament so far, Royals have managed to register wins in both matches. 

Defeating Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals, Rajasthan Royals sit in third place in the standings with four points in two matches. The inaugural champions will hope to register their third win of the season against Mumbai and maintain their position in the points table.

Wankhede Stadium Pitch Report and Conditions

As has been the case in the past, the surface at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is one that is preferred by the batters. The pitch is also known to assist spinners a bit, and a high-scoring encounter could be quite the possibility. Opting to bowl first after winning the toss could be the optimal decision. 

Probable Playing XI

Mumbai Indians (MI)

Despite losing their previous game, Mumbai Indians could field a lineup similar to their clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The side almost chased down a total of 278 runs, and MI could aim to back their current set of players.

Predicted XI: Ishan Kishan (wk), Rohit Sharma, Naman Dhir, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (C), Tim David, Romario Shepherd, Piyush Chawla, G Coetzee, Jasprit Bumrah, and Kwena Maphaka

Impact player: Vishnu Vinod

Rajasthan Royals (RR)

Similarly, Rajasthan Royals will not be looking to fix something that is not broken. Having won two out of two matches, with Nandre Burger as the impact substitute, Jos Buttler, Shimron Hetmyer, and Trent Boult could once again be the foreign players to feature for Royals

Predicted XI: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Riyan Parag, Dhruv Jurel, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, Avesh Khan, Sandeep Sharma
