After a magnificent win over the Chennai Super Kings in their last IPL 2020 match, the Mumbai Indians will aim to cement their position in the top 2 of the points table by replicating the same performance against the Rajasthan Royals.
The Mumbai-based franchise have won seven of their ten matches in IPL 2020, including a victory versus RR. When the two teams met earlier this season, Suryakumar Yadav's 47-ball 79* helped the defending champions win by 57 runs.
Jos Buttler fought like a lone warrior for the inaugural IPL winners, but his 44-ball 70 was not enough to give them the crucial two points. The Royals are in the bottom half of the IPL 2020 standings, with four wins in eleven matches.
Steve Smith and co. need to win their remaining three fixtures to ensure that they stay alive in the race for the IPL 2020 playoffs. The Jaipur-based franchise have performed well against MI of late, and here's a look at their head-to-head stats before their reverse fixture.
