MI vs RR – Paper value
With Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma set to play the match tomorrow, the hosts comprise of a stellar batting order. Given the form that their all-rounder duo of Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard are in, expect them to both chase and set a formidable total tomorrow.
The Head-to-Head stats of both the teams highlight the fact that Pollard is Mumbai Indians’ highest run-scorer and wicket-taker against Royals among the current players. Citing the same, he might as well continue his prowess in Wankhede tomorrow.
On the contrary, Royals look unsettled to the extent that they are yet to zero in on a settled combination. Considering Mumbai’s record at Wankhede, their current form and Royals being inconsistent, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that MI stand favourites at this point in time.
