IPL 2021, LIVE Cricket Score, MI vs RR (Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals): Catch all the latest updates from Match 24 of IPL 2021 on Justnewsday.com‘s LIVE blog!
Preview: Reigning IPL champions Mumbai Indians will take on the Rajasthan Royals in Match 24 of IPL 2020 in Delhi.
Having lost their previous two matches, against the Punjab Kings and the Delhi Capitals, Rohit Sharma’s MI side will be looking to get back to winning ways. The Rajasthan Royals meanwhile, will be trying to maintain their winning form after having beaten the Kolkata Knight Riders in their previous fixture.
The biggest worry for MI so far in the league has been the lack of runs from its middle-order. They did not even manage to cross the 140-run mark in their last two matches despite batting first on both occasions. The slow nature of the Chennai pitch kind of neutralised the MI’s attacking style of play. However, they are now in Delhi which has so far hosted just one match. On a fresh pitch, Rohit and Co will be looking to rediscover their batting form.
RR defeated KKR in their last match with an all-round performance. Chris Morris was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets while Samson scored a sensible knock of 42 off 41 in a successful chase. The challenge for them will be to quickly adapt to the new conditions in Delhi. All their matches so far in IPL 2021 were held in Mumbai.
Despite having suffered back-to-back defeats in recent outings, the Mumbai Indians aren’t too far down in the table, and are currently occupying the fourth and final play-off spot, thanks to a net run rate that’s just a shade on the wrong side of zero. Rajasthan Royals are a further three places down in seventh place, but Sanju Samson won’t be worrying too much about it just yet, seeing as they’re tied on four points with this afternoon’s opponents.
