MI vs RR Dream11 Prediction: The 24th match of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021) will be played between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi on Thursday, April 29, 2021.
MI vs RR Match Preview
Mumbai Indians will take on the Rajasthan Royals in the 24th match of the Indian Premier League 2021 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Thursday.
Mumbai Indians have been pretty inconsistent in the ongoing season of the IPL with two wins in five games. They have lacked consistency in middle-order batting. Although Rohit Sharma has regained his form with the bat, the likes of Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock have failed miserably, leading to teams restricting Mumbai to small totals.
However, a change of venue from Chennai to Delhi can serve Mumbai Indians well as they head into Thursday’s game as clear favourites.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have also issues in their batting order. They haven’t quite managed to get hold of themselves. However, the win against KKR in the previous match will bring a lot of confidence to the camp.
Their bowling will be key once again as they face the champions at the Kotla. They need to control their variations with the ball and the batsmen have to be patient rather than forcing things.
With two valuable points on the IPL 2021 points table up for grabs, we should be in for a cracker of a game on Thursday.

Top 5 Picks For MI vs RR
1. Suryakumar Yadav
He has scored 30+ knock in the last game against Punjab. It was his third 30+ score in the ongoing season of the IPL, and we can expect a big knock from him this time.
2. Rohit Sharma
He has been the lone warrior for his side and is expected to perform better this time. He played an important knock of 63 runs in the last game. He has now scored 30 plus runs in all of his last 4 games.
3. Rahul Chahar
He is repaying Mumbai for the faith they have shown in him with one sensational spell after another. He has picked up 9 wickets in the last 5 games and has not conceded over 30 runs in any of those matches.
4. Chris Morris
He is another player, albeit from the other team, who is justifying his price tag. He picked up 9 wickets in the 5 matches.
5. Sanju Samson
After getting a century in the first game, has failed to deliver with the bat in the last few games. Being the captain of the team, he must be looking for another big knock.
