MI vs RR Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the 24th match of IPL 2021.
The 24th match of the ongoing 14th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals in Delhi today.
After playing their first five matches in Chennai, defending champions Mumbai will be playing their first match in Delhi in another couple of hours. Despite a change in venue, conditions are likely to remain the same as the Feroz Shah Kotla surface also tends to behave on the slower side.
As far as Rajasthan are concerned, they will also be playing their first match in Delhi after spending the first leg of this league stage in Mumbai.

The last time when Indians and Royals had locked horns against each other was during an IPL 2020 league match at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Chasing a 196-run target, RR had secured a victory in the penultimate over on the back of a match-winning 152-run partnership between Ben Stokes (107 not out) and Sanju Samson (54 not out).
In addition to taking inspiration from such a chase, Rajasthan would also be banking on the fact that they have won four out of their last five IPL matches against Mumbai.
