RR vs MI Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the 45th match of IPL 2020.
The 45h match of the ongoing 13th season of the Indian Premier League will be played between Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi tomorrow.
Rajasthan, who have lost seven out of their 11 matches so far, are all but out of contention to qualify for the playoffs. Contrary to their opposition’s seventh position on the points table, Mumbai are at the top of the table with seven victories in 10 matches till now.
If Indians become successful in continuing their winning streak, eight wins will all but guarantee them a place in the playoffs. It will be interesting to see if regular captain Rohit Sharma takes the field at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium after missing the last match against Chennai Super Kings.
