MI VS RR MATCH PREDICTION & ANALYSIS
With three wins out of five matches, the Mumbai Indians currently sit at the top of the IPL 2020 league table. That will change as one out of DC or RCB will take the top-spot after their match on Monday but there is no doubt that the Mumbai Indians are heading in the right direction.
The same cannot be said for their opponents in this next match. The Rajasthan Royals started in style with two massive victories in Sharjah but have since struggled. They have lost their previous two matches and it looks like they have to make some changes to their lineup.
Can the Mumbai Indians continue to crush opponent after opponent with ease or will the Rajasthan Royals find their mojo once again?
MI vs RR IPL 2020 is going to be played at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi on the 6th of October 2020.
We did not think that the Mumbai Indians played their best cricket against SRH but they still managed to come away with an easy victory. The credit for that victory goes to their amazing lower-order hitting prowess, something that is still being underutilized.
Why would you send in Ishan Kishan at number 4 when you have Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya down the order? Especially is the second wicket falls somewhere near the tenth over?
The Mumbai Indians are probably not going to change a winning combination, though, and continue to play in a similar manner. Quinton de Kock got some runs as well in the previous match, which just leave Suryakumar Yadav as the underperforming batsman in the lineup.
The biggest advantage that MI has it is ability to score an almost unbelievable number of runs in the final six overs. Pollard is perhaps the best T20 batsman in the world right now while almost every single batsman in the lineup can hit sixes with ease.
MI has a better and deeper batting lineup than RR, no question about that.
The bowling form of Krunal Pandya and Rahul Chahar has also provided a lot of balance. With Trent Boult, James Pattinson, and Jasprit Bumrah as the pacers, Mumbai has every aspect of its team well-covered and it is going to take something very special to stop it.
Mumbai Indians Playing 11
Playing 11 not yet available.
The Rajasthan Royals have found life a bit tough outside Sharjah. Their batsmen have not been able to get the same sort of results on the bigger outfields and on slower pitches. They have to take a more tempered approach in their batting otherwise they risk losing too many wickets up front.
Steve Smith, Jos Buttler, and Sanju Samson are the three clear match-winners in this team. Ben Stokes has joined the squad but he is going to not be available for this next match because of quarantine restrictions.
This means we can expect a largely similar team setup.
The lack of depth in the RR batting is clear. Riyan Parag, Robin Uthappa, and Mahipal Lomror are talented but not nearly at the same level as what the Mumbai Indians have.
The bowling is also far too dependent on Jofra Archer at the moment. Maybe switching out Tom Curran for David Miller and replacing Robin Uthappa with a bowler could be the way to go in this match.
RR not only needs to be at its best but must also be able to make the necessary team changes to be competitive.

MI VS RR TOSS PREDICTION
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The conditions in Abu Dhabi have been a bit on the slower side but still in favor of the batsmen. The spinners are a big force but we would not say that the conditions have gone far too much in their favor just yet.
Batting first seems to be a big advantage especially if you can get a decent total on the board.
Anything around 175 seems to be par for the surface.

MI VS RR BETTING TIPS
We think the Mumbai Indians are the team to beat in this match. They have a very good setup that is superior to RR in every way. Then only way RR can hope to win this match is one the back of individual brilliance from one of its top-3 batsmen.
Bet on the Mumbai Indians to win.
Our Favorite Bets
O/U HIghest Individual Score – Over 68.5 ($1.83) (10Cric)
The matches in the IPL have been pretty high-scoring in general and the fact there are just three grounds being used allows the batsmen to get used to the conditions. With the wealth of batting talent on display in this match, we think there is a good chance of this bat paying off.
Hardik Pandya Total Runs – Over 16.5 ($1.83) (Betway)
There is one major positive and one significant negative while considering this bet. Hardik Pandya is in good form and has consistently batted above Kieron Pollard which makes it likely he will get an opportunity to actually score the runs. ON the other hand, batsmen like Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock batting above him can easily bat out the entire 20 overs! All things considered, a good bet with a good chance of paying out.
Jos Buttler Will Score 50 – Yes ($3.2) (1xBet)
We generally avoid this sort of bet because you are putting all your eggs in just one basket. In this case, however, the form that Jos Buttler is showing makes us believe a big score is around the corner. Also a better than 3x return on a batsman like Jos Buttler is very rare. Go for it! The returns are worth the risk.
