Rajasthan Royals are scheduled to lock horns with the Mumbai Indians in Match No.51 of the 2021 Indian Premier League on Tues, October 5th at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. The Royals being led by Sanju Samson should be high on confidence because of their seven-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings.

But despite the excellent win, the Royals are straining at sixth position in the points table. Their net run rate of -0.337 isn’t the most effective by any stretch of the imagination. Another loss can virtually knock them out of the tournament, though they’ll have a mathematical probability to qualify for the playoffs.

MI, on the other hand, have lost four of their last 5 matches and are placed at seventh position in the table. After losing to Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians aren’t in the better of positions. When the 2 groups last met, the Mumbai-based team won by seven wickets, and that they are searching for an analogous performance.
