The 45th Match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 will be played between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and defending champions Mumbai Indians on Sunday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
While Mumbai Indians’ is at number one in the points table after seven wins in ten matches, Rajasthan has lost seven in eleven matches and are currently placed in the seventh spot with eight points.
The average score of the last 10 innings in Abu Dhabi has been 147 runs but Mumbai Indians have batted at the same place with an average score of 185 in four innings. Talking of playing XI, Rajasthan Royals may still need to be down a bit on their batting order but overall they have got a better XI. Even though Tyagi went for a run against Sunrisers Hyderabad, there is little chance that the team will make any change.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians would not have made any change in their team if Rohit had not been hurt. Due to this, there was a change in the opening pair against Chennai Super Kings but if Rohit would be fit for the match, Saurabh Tiwari would have to sit out. Apart from this, no other changes would be seen in the playing eleven of Mumbai Indians.
