Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians – Match Preview

While Mumbai have enjoyed the better IPL 2020 campaign so far, Rajasthan do have an impressive record against them.

The Royals have won five of the last seven meetings and will be looking to add to that here.

That said, MI did come out on top with a comfortable 57-run success in the reverse fixture of this year’s tournament.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Sunday, 25 October 2020

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

Pitch conditions: The pitch at Abu Dhabi has certainly started to slow now. Bowlers who are able to take pace off can definitely have an impact, as can bowling a fuller length to give the ball chance to swing. We can expect lower totals to previous matches and dew is still a factor.

Weather conditions: Clear skies and sunny conditions are once more forecast for Abu Dhabi. Temperatures are likely to hover around the 30 degree mark throughout.

Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians – Team News

Rajasthan have improved in recent outings and are starting to have a much more balanced look about them.

As usual, they have the option to use Jos Buttler anywhere they see fit in the top order. Ben Stokes and Robin Uthappa have been partnered at the top but you couldn’t rule out another rejig at some stage.

Jofra Archer continues to be RR’s main man with the ball. However, don’t underestimate the impact of Kartik Tyagi, Rahul Tewatia and Shreyas Gopal to their improved form.

It is hard to see too many sweeping changes from the Royals for this.

As for Mumbai, they have not been forced into many changes so far and also have a settled side.

Australian Nathan Coulter-Nile has come into the side recently and done well. He is likely to keep his place ahead of countryman James Pattinson.

Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians – Betting Tips and Prediction

Mumbai look worthy favourites but their recent record against the Royals means this could be closer than some think.

Rajasthan certainly have the firepower to hurt MI and it will be interesting to see how Mumbai react should they start with purpose.

However, it could be worth looking at other markets to discover the best value bets for this fixture.

Smith Can Offer Value in the Top Batsman Market

He may not be as dynamic as those around him, but conditions in Abu Dhabi might just suit the RR skipper more.

It’s easy to get bogged down on this slower surface and the likes of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler may find it all a little too frustrating when not able to get the ball away.

That isn’t something that will faze the Australian and backing him to top score for his side looks a decent value selection at 4.5 with 1xBet.

Tyagi to Outshine Archer

Kartik Tyagi has been a real bright spark for Rajasthan this tournament – and recover quickly from a poor spell against Hyderabad recently.

He is another that can get the most out of this surface should he get his line and length right. His consistency in this area has been a strength and backing him to be the Royals top bowler could be an interesting play.

While Archer will head the market, Tyagi’s consistency and added variation can be a big weapon for RR.

He is priced at 5.0 with 1xBet to be Rajasthan’s top wicket-taker in this one.

Bumrah to be Mumbai’s Top Bowler

Bumrah looks tailor-made for these conditions and has really found his top gear in recent outings. It would be no surprise to see him continue that against the Royals at 2.88 with 1xBet.

Chahar is also enjoying himself too and it could be a decent battle to see who comes out on top. Preference is for Bumrah as he looks to help Mumbai to a vital victory.
