After an embarrassing defeat at the hands of Gujarat Titans in their last match in IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians will be hosting Rajasthan Royals on April 30 at the Wankhede Stadium. Notably, they are currently eighth on the IPL Points Table while Rajasthan Royals are at the top, after their terrific win over Chennai Super Kings in the last match.
Young opener Yashasvi Jaiswal is in terrific form and so is Dhruv Jurel. These two have helped Rajasthan win the majority of the games while Sandeep Sharma and Ravichandran Ashwin are on song with the ball. When it comes to the Rohit Sharma-led side, there is a lot of room for improvement. Jofra Archer is likely to make a comeback in the match while senior players like Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav need to take more responsibility.
