RR vs MI LIVE Score IPL 2020: Ben Stokes and Sanju Samson at the crease, Rajasthan Royals score 80

RR vs MI LIVE Score: The defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on the Rajasthan Royals in the second match of IPL-13 on Sunday at Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Mumbai are in first place with 14 points after seven wins and three defeats in 10 matches. The two points she gets from winning in this match will ensure her place in the playoffs with 16 points.

On the other hand, Rajasthan is in seventh place with eight points with four wins and seven defeats in 11 matches. A win in this match will keep him in the playoff race but to qualify it is necessary that the team wins all the remaining matches. Also, Rajasthan will have to monitor the performance of other teams as well. Mumbai beat Chennai Super Kings in the last match and seeing the kind of performance they are doing, it is unlikely that a volatile team like Rajasthan will be able to stand in front of them.

Rohit Sharma did not play in the last match and Karen Pollard captained the team in his place. Rohit was rested in the last match and it is expected that he will take the field against Rajasthan. After Rohit’s arrival, it is certain that Sourav Tiwari will go out. Apart from this, there is no possibility of any change in the team of Mumbai.

The opening pair of Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma have been scoring brilliantly throughout the season. Ishaan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have strengthened the middle order and towards the end are Pollard, Hardik Pandya and his brother Krunal Pandya.

In bowling, Trent Bolt broke Chennai’s back with four wickets in the last match. Jaspreet Bumrah, and Nathan Coulter Nile are supporting him well. Rahul Chahar has impressed a lot in spin.

On the other hand, if we talk about Rajasthan, then Ben Stokes’ form is a matter of concern for him. He has been batting openly till now. Maybe the team management will try him in the middle order and send Jose Butler to start the innings with Robin Uthappa. Apart from these two, the team will also expect runs from captain Steve Smith, and Sanju Samson. Rahul Tewatia and Ryan Parag will also be expected to perform well.

In Rajasthan bowling, a lot will depend on Jofra Archer and Karthik Tyagi. Both of these have handled Rajasthan’s bowling and it is expected that it will do well for the team in the coming matches.
