Rajasthan Royals is in a 5 match winning streak against Mumbai Indians

 Four times IPL Champions will take on inaugural champions in 20th match of the season. With hat trick of wins, Mumbai Indians are flying high and currently they occupy second spot in points table. On the other hand, after chasing highest total in tournament's history, Rajasthan Royals have lost consecutive matches. 

Mumbai Indians started their campaign after loosing their opening game against last year's runner up - Chennai Super Kings. While, Rajasthan Royals started their campaign with back to back wins but then they seemed to have lost their momentum.

Mumbai Indians may not have played their best cricket but still they managed to emerge out as winners on the board against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Credit for that victory goes to their lower middle order batsmen who scored runs at a strike rate of more than 200. Pandya brothers along with Kieron Pollard have become nightmare for other team's bowlers. 

Quinton de Kock scored much needed half century in last game which leaves Suryakumar Yadav as a lone under performing batsman. Hence they are likely to stick with same combination for this game too. 

Biggest advantage for Mumbai Indians is the performance of their lower middle order batsmen who are scoring runs at an unbelievable strike rate in final six overs. Kieron Pollard is one the specialist batsman for this job. Apart from Pollard, Hardik and Krunal Pandya are also contributing with the bat. There is no question that MI has better and deeper batting lineup than RR. 

In the bowling department, likes of Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar has clicked in spin department. In fast bowling, James Pattinson has been a great addition in the team. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult are picking up wickets in death overs and in powerplay. 

On the other hand, Rajasthan were flying high at Sharjah but their life has become difficult out of Sharjah. Their batsmen have not yielded same results on bigger outfield and on slower pitches. RR is heavily dependent over Jos Buttler, Steve Smith, Sanju Samson in terms of batting. There is no doubt that all of these are clear match winners but their middle order will have to step up if Rajasthan wants to qualify for the play offs.

It's not just batting but Rajasthan's bowling is also dependent on Jofra Archer. Royals may opt for change in their playing eleven. They can replace Tom Curran for David Miller, and could add Varun Aaron in place of Robin Uthappa or Riyan Parag.
