Player to Watch Out : Jos Buttler

Mumbai are looking good in their last 2 matches after losing to Bangalore in Super Over. Mumbai are coming after back to back win over Punjab and Hyderabad in their previous matches. Mumbai are looking solid in both bowling and batting with new performers in every game.

Quinton de Kock finally made some runs against Hyderabad and the team would want the same from the South African wicketkeeper batsman in this match too. Pollard and Hardik were brilliant as always. Krunal came in last over and smashed 2 fours and 2 sixes from 4 balls he faced to show he too can finish off things. Ishan Kishan has shown promise in the middle order too.

The pace bowling looks real good with the trio of Trent Boult, James Pattinson and Jasprit Bumrah. The MI side seems to be starting to gain the momentum and we all know if Mumbai starts getting into momentum, its not easy for any team to stop them.

Having said that, Rajasthan aren't a bad side either. However, RR are coming after 2 back to back losses. Jos Buttler hasn't had an impactful innings so far. I am expecting big runs from Buttler this time and reduce the over dependence on Steve Smith and Sanju Samson as far as RR batting is concerned.

Steve Smith and Sanju Samson were brilliant in first 2 games but failed in next 2. Rahul Tewatia was the star with the bat against Punjab. Mahipal Lomror showed his abilities in the last game against Bangalore. Their top order needs to click especially Jos Buttler.

Jofra Archer and Tom Curran have been pretty good with the ball for Rajasthan but Jaydev Unadkat hasn't lived upto the expectations. Guys like Rahul Tewatia, Riyan Parag and Shreyas Gopal needs to get amongst wickets for the team.
