Big Picture:

The might of the Mumbai Indians coming into this match can be very easily judged by the fact that both the purple cap and the orange cap is being held by players from their team only i.e Lasith Malinga and Sachin Tendulkar respectively. Their team has been highly stable so far into this tournament and the work balance they have created between the players is just phenomenal. Mumbai Indians has so far lost only one match in this tournament and are perched at the top of the points table. Rajasthan Royals on the other hand have their work cut out to salvage something from this game. They have always been a team devoid of star presence and have always clicked as a unit whenever they have won. This IPL has also followed the same storyline from them and a lot will be expected from bowlers like Siddharth Trivedi and Amit Singh to give them breakthroughs against a strong Mumbai batting line up.


The track at Jaipur is pretty placid but in the last few matches it has just kept a bit low and slow. It’s a tricky pitch to bat first and know what the competitive score is however captains will still prefer to have the first use of such a track.

Mini battles:

Sachin Tendulkar vs Shane Warne– Have we heard their names before? If anyone says this before watching this match cricket is certainly not your cup of tea mate. A battle that should satisfy the dreams of a poignant cricket supporter is on the cards. They have played against each other for such a long time and being such legends of the game they will know what they have to produce against each other during the match. Please rough up that part outside leg stump.

Lasith Malinga vs Rahul Dravid – They both will face each other at the top of the order and this will be a contest between Malinga’s un canniness and Dravid’s rock solid technique. Dravid can be expected to see out Malinga generally but this not test cricket anymore and he will have to make sure he scores a heavy chunk of runs in his first spell.

Youth Siren:

Deepak Chahar is a 18 year old fast bowler from Rajasthan and has had a dream Ranji debut season picking up 40 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 21.17.


The match would have generally weighed in favor of the Mumbai Indians completely but considering the venue being the fortress of Rajasthan Royals anything can be possible here. Absolutely anything.
