Too early to say anything but Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians are two ends of a story at this moment. Rajasthan Royals have played two matches and won two. Mumbai Indians have played two and lost two. These two teams will lock horn at Rajasthan Royal's adopted home venue Ahmedabad. Watch Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians match live streaming on Star Sports and HotStar mobile app. Watch the match live telecast on Sony Six, Sony Max (Set Max) and Sony Pix in India with live commentary in Hindi, English, Telugu, Bengali and Tamil.
Head to head Mumbai has won nine out of 14 matches but the current form suggests Rajasthan Royals are clear favourites. Playing against Kings XI Punjab, RR registered a comprehensive 26 runs victory. While playing against Delhi Daredevils, they clinched a nail biting win. Deepak Hooda is a 19 year old player who impressed many with his 25 ball 54 runs knock.
Rajasthan Royals have done a good job in all departments of cricket. Shane Watson is still doubtful for the game against Mumbai Indians due to hip injury. Steven Smith has anchored the team well in his absence. It was good to see Ajinkya Rahane back in form in last match. Steven Smith is consistently scoring runs. James Faulkner can be dangerous with bat as well as ball.
Mumbai Indians have had another disappointing start to the IPL campaign. Apart from Rohit Sharma none of the top order batsmen have clicked. Likes of Aaron Finch, Lenld Simmons and Rayudu haven't clicked so far. Anderson did a good job in first match. Pollard is yet to score big.
Harbhajan Singh is bowling well and his cameo in the last match almost took Mumbai home. Way the top order failed, there was hardly any scope left to win. Lasith Malinga hasn't been in the best of his forms. If Mumbai has to win against in form Rajasthan Royals they have to click well in all three departments of cricket viz., batting, bowling and fielding.
Let us see who comes up as winner here at Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera.
