Rajasthan Royals lost the last game they played at the Wankhede Stadium

Mumbai Indians will play Rajasthan Royals next in match 32 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at the Wankhede Stadium. MI are all charged up after successfully defending 157 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match. They are in the bottom half of the IPL league table, but their players have hinted in their previous match of the hunger to get back on the board after the first half debacle in the tournament.

On the other hand, RR are comfortably sitting on their camel with 12 points from the 9 matches they played. The Jaipur franchise is second in the league table following Chennai Super Kings at the top. Their last two games were washed out because of rain and they shared 1 point each with their opponents.

Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai

Date and time: May 1, 2015, 08:00 PM Indian Standard Time
