Ground News

A difficult to bat pitch generally. But chasing isn’t a bad option at this ground.

Final Thoughts

The results have heavily favored teams batting 2nd when Rajasthan Royals were involved. The win-loss stands at 62-42 in favor of the chasing sides. When the numbers are restricted only to Sawai Mansingh Stadium, chasing teams lead by 23-10.

With both bowling units on the weaker side and the constant appearance of dew in every match happening at night, today too chasing teams will have an advantage. RRs batting line up is a worry as no batsman is converting their starts to big scores. A Mumbai Indians chase is preferred.

Preview From Other Sources

CricBuzz Preview

The points table doesn’t probably give an accurate reflection of how these two sides have fared in the Indian Premier League 2018 so far. Rajasthan Royals are ahead on points but have a lot to worry about going into their sixth game of the tournament while Mumbai Indians, despite three losses in their first three outings, will take comfort after registering their first win of the tournament. For the latter, things are just about falling into place while the former battles to find the right combination and create some momentum.

Rajasthan Royals bank heavily on their first eleven to fire consistently but a number of key players such as Jaydev Unadkat and their overseas signings are yet to play up to potential. Barring Sanju Samson (in the first three games), their batsmen have failed to click collectively and a lot rests on how they tackle their batting order problems. Who is the ideal partner for Ajinkya Rahane at the top? D’Arcy Short and Heinrich Klaasen have been tried so far to no avail and with each failure the cries to move Rahul Tripathi up the order increase. Tripathi has been given the role of a finisher at the Royals but has not got the time to be as effective as he was with Rising Pune SuperGiant last year. At the start of the tournament, their spin bowling was considered to be the weaker suit but K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal have managed to shore them up quite efficiently even as the pacers falter. With lack of strength in the back-ups, the Royals have the unenviable task of finding form in a tournament that doesn’t allow much breathing space.

No such worries for Mumbai Indians who have seen runs come at some stage from their top five batsmen, while the bowling hasn’t been too bad. That they’ve looked in good touch overall despite minimal contributions from the likes of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard shows their overall strength. Small margins in their losses have resulted in Mumbai Indians still having a positive net run-rate. A game against a troubled Royals will probably be best suited for their bid to gain some momentum after their previous win.

When: April 22 at 20:00 IST

Where: Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Jaipur

What to expect: No forecast of rain bodes well for the game.

Team News

Rajasthan Royals: They took a few gambles which didn’t work out against Chennai Super Kings. There was merit in choosing Klaasen over D’Arcy Short but the move to make him open didn’t go in their favour. That they have someone like Tripathi in the line-up could force another batting order change. Meanwhile, the wait for Jofra Archer to get fit continues. Dhawal Kulkarni could get his place back at the expense of Stuart Binny.

Probable XI: Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson, Ben Stokes, Heinrich Klassen, Jos Buttler, K Gowtham, Shreyas Gopal, Ben Laughlin, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni

Mumbai Indians: Despite losing their first three games, Mumbai Indians will be pretty happy with their team combination. They earned a comfortable win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous outing and are unlikely to make any changes to that eleven. Ishan Kishan, who walked off after sustaining an injury near the eye, has resumed practice and is likely to be passed fit for the Sunday clash.

Probable XI: Suryakumar Yadav, Evin Lewis, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman

Stats and Trivia

Head to Head of teams: RR 6 – 10 MI

Team Record at the venue: RR 3 – 2 MI

Interesting face-offs

Samson vs McClenaghan: Samson has been dismissed by the left-arm seamer four times in 11 deliveries including three dismissals off the last three balls. No other bowler has dismissed him more than twice in IPL.

Stokes vs wrist spin: Against wrist spin, Stokes has averaged 13.50 for four dismissals at a strike-rate of 105.88. He has got out to a wrist spinner in all his last three innings – Chahal, Chawla and Tahir.

Approaching milestones

Samson needs 64 more runs to become the fifth player to score 1000 runs for RR in IPL.

Venue trends

Before the start of this IPL, MI were the only visiting side to successfully chase 150+ in Jaipur – 163/0 in 2012.

IPL 2018 trends

RR have been the slowest starters in IPL scoring at only 7.80 in the powerplays compared to the tournament average of 9.15. Their run rate of 7.47 is also the lowest among sides this IPL.

MI average only 17.31 with the ball in the middle overs (7-15) taking 16 wickets in this phase. On the other hand, RR has been the worst team in this phase with the ball having taken only eight wickets at 36.88 apiece.

Quotes

The past is only a confidence-booster as far as I’m concerned. It’s a fresh team, it’s a new game, they have a good side. As we’ve seen in this tournament, everyone’s beaten the other guy. So it’s important to make sure that we focus on what we want to do. They’re coming out of two losses, two back-to-back losses which I’m pretty sure will put some pressure on them. They had a really bad loss against Chennai. So we will certainly make it known to them, that they’ve lost pretty badly – Robin Singh pulls no punches ahead of MI’s clash against RR

CricInfo Preview

Big Picture

Five matches into IPL 2018, Rajasthan Royals are yet to find their perfect batting line-up. Their big guns Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler haven’t fired like they can while Rahul Tripathi, who had a strike-rate of 158 in the Powerplay last season, continues to be stuck in the middle order. Against Chennai Super Kings on Friday, Royals swapped D’Arcy Short with Heinrich Klaasen at the top, but the South Africa batsman did not fare better either. Will they finally push Tripathi to open?

The worries have spread over to the bowling too. While spinners K Gowtham and Shreyas Gopal have impressed, Royals’ pace attack continues to look thin.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, are in much better shape. Having endured three successive losses, their emphatic 46-run win against Royal Challengers Bangalore exhibited their batting depth. That Mumbai’s win coincided with their captain Rohit Sharma hitting form will keep Royals worried.

In the news

  • Mumbai Indians’ wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan took a blow on his right eye while gathering a throw, in their previous match on Tuesday. But he took part in the net session and is expected to play.
  • Jofra Archer is training with the squad and is on recovery mode for a side strain that he picked up during the Pakistan Super League. Will he finally make his IPL debut?

The likely XIs

Rajasthan Royals: 1 Ajinkya Rahane (capt), 2 Heinrich Klaasen, 3 Sanju Samson, 4 Ben Stokes, 5 Jos Buttler(wk), 6 Rahul Tripathi, 7 Dhawal Kulkarni, 8 K Gowtham, 9 Shreyas Gopal, 10 Jaydev Unadkat, 11 Ben Laughlin

Mumbai Indians: 1 Suryakumar Yadav, 2 Evin Lewis, 3 Rohit Sharma (capt), 4 Ishan Kishan (wk), 5 Kieron Pollard, 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Krunal Pandya, 8 Mitchell McClenaghan 9 Mayank Markande, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

Stats that matter

  • Since 2015, chasing teams have won only four out of seven matches under lights at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium
  • Jasprit Bumrah has the wood over his former team-mate Jos Butter, having dismissed the England batsman twice in two matches, while giving away just one run off seven balls
  • Ben Laughlin needs one wicket to reach 150 wickets in T20s

Strategy punt

There is a case for Rohit to save Mitchell McClenaghan for Sanju Samson. The left-arm quick has dismissed Samson four times in four matches, while conceding 14 runs off 10 balls.

Fantasy pick

Despite his team managing only one win in four matches so far, Krunal Pandya has done little wrong in his individual capacity, and you shouldn’t do any by not picking him in your XI. He’s claimed five wickets at 6.55 an over – the second-best economy rate among the top 15 wicket-takers this season, to go with his 82 runs at a strike rate of 152.85.
