With the league stage reaching its business end, and four teams fighting it out for the last available playoff spot, the Rajasthan vs Mumbai match will carry a lot of weightage.
The defending champions have been enduring a dismal run in the 2021 IPL season. Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians are currently languishing at the seventh spot on the points table, with just five wins from 12 games.
Inaugural champions Royals, find themselves in a similar position, placed just above the Mumbai Indians, with the same number of wins, but with a slightly better net runrate. While Mumbai head into the match on the back of their seventh loss this season – going down to table toppers Delhi Capitals, the Royals will look to carry on the momentum after registering a stunning win over overwhelming favourites Chennai Super Kings in their previous game.
In their last five encounters, Royals have the better head-to-head record, having won three out of five games. But in the reverse fixture this season, Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians defeated the Sanju Samson-led Royals by seven wickets. Both sides will be desperate to win to strenghten their chances of making it to the playoffs.
