Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals – Match Preview

Despite Mumbai’s IPL wins over the years, the Royals have enjoyed head-to-head success against them.

Rajasthan have won the last four meetings between the two teams, including doing the double in IPL 2019.

Those stats make this clash an intriguing match-up when you factor in the current form of both sides.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Tuesday, 6 October 2020

Start time: 14:00 GMT (19:30 IST)

Pitch conditions: The pitch in Abu Dhabi has been on the skiddy side since the start of the tournament. It hasn’t looked too tricky to bat on but big boundaries make for low scoring contests. Expect spinners to start having more of a say.

Weather conditions: Yet more hot weather is forecast for this one. High temperatures and no rain look to continue here. Dew is less of a factor at this venue compared to others.

Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals – Team News

Mumbai look to have a reasonably settled team at the moment, especially in their bowling attack.

Ishan Kishan showed his destructive power against RCB and the balanced nature of their side at present makes changes unlikely.

Quinton de Kock and skipper Rohit Sharma will continue at the top of the order with Kishan and Yadav in support.

The bigger questions come in the Rajasthan line-up.

While the imminent return of England all-rounder Ben Stokes will be a huge plus, this game comes too soon.

The Royals will be looking for more from Jos Buttler to help Steve Smith and Sanju Samson.

A fragile middle-order has been an issue for Rajasthan and pressure is on Robin Uthappa and Riyan Parag to fire given Stokes’ availability for future fixtures.

Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals – Betting Tips and Prediction

Rajasthan have the firepower to cause Mumbai problems here but it is hard to look past the defending champions.

Mumbai’s bowling attack looks full of confidence and siding with them to take the win looks the sensible bet.

Take a look at our other best tips for this contest.

Back Steve Smith for Top Royals Batsman

Australian Steve Smith has enjoyed a good start to the IPL and looks a solid bet in the top Rajasthan batsman market.

He, like all the RR batsmen, have struggled away from Sharjah, but his ability to adapt and harvest runs in a bigger outfield could come to the fore now.

There might not be too many big shots from him but the ball skidding on should give him chance to measure an innings if he can find better form.

His price of 4.0 with bet365 looks an interesting betting prospect.

More Wickets for Pattinson

James Pattinson has taken four wickets in the last two matches and looks a great bet to continue that form here.

It is worth noting his impressive performance with the ball against KXIP at this ground. The conditions suited him then and he looks a value bet to shine again.

He can be backed at 5.0 with 22Bet to be Mumbai’s top bowler in this contest.

Archer to get Over 32.5 Player Performance Points

Jofra Archer has looked dangerous with the ball in spells this IPL but has already had to bat a few times for the Royals.

A top-order that has failed to fire since moving away from Sharjah and a weak middle-order has seen the England pace ace come in with good effect with the bat too.

If that persists then he looks a really good bet to get over 32.5 player performance points. He can be backed at 1.83 with bet365 to achieve that.

Remember, he’ll get 20 points for every wicket he takes, one for every run and 10 for every catch in the field. He might not even need to bat should he take just two wickets.
