Today’s match prediction for MI vs RR is as followed:-
Toss Prediction for MI vs RR:
The Pitch report of Wankhede Stadium is that due it’s close proximity to the Arabian Sea the pitch offers assistance to the Swing bowlers on the early part of the day and also supports spinners on the latter part of the day, the pitch tends to ease out and favour batsmen as the innings progresses. There can be big scores posted as well chased, the one who wins the toss would elect to bat first majorly, they can bowl as well if they have a wide batting line-up and can chase easily.
If MI bats first (predicted score 180-200 ):
The Mumbai Indians batsmen are highly talented and can exhilarate big blokes from their bat, they are mixed composure of youngsters and experienced players like Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Bumrah in last. The key batsmen will be Kieron Pollard, he played a captains innings and won the game against KXIP, chasing 198.
If RR bats first (predicted score 150-180):
Rajasthan’s player to lookout against MI will be Jos Buttler and Krishnappa Gowtham, these two are super hitters and have the tendency to play an incredible inning against this opposition. Ajinkya Rahane also has good numbers against Mumbai. We predict a half-century from Rahane in the coming match. The predicted total is less compared to MI because the whole innings depend on the top order batsman.

Rohit Sharma missed last match due to injury and the West Indian Pollard took his place as captain.
