In the past two matches, neither Rajasthan Royal batsmen nor their bowlers have delivered. Against KKR, they could only post 160 and allowed the visitors to chase down the aim with ease. Against CSK, Rajasthan bowlers were engaged to cleaners by veteran Australian all-rounder Shane Watson, who blasted a 106 off 57 deliveries. Rajasthan then were bowled out for 140, with single, barring Ben Stokes (45) offering any confrontation. Skipper Ajinkya Rahane has seemed good but has not been converting good starts into big scores. Sanju Samson, Stokes and Rahul Tripathi have been incompatible. Rajasthan Royals bowlers - K. Gowtham and Ben Laughlin - have done well while leggie Shreyas Gopal has also been inexpensive. But they have not Done  well mutually in a single match.  Jaydev Unadkat also wishes to raise his level to live to the expectations of the franchise.

The visiting side at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium, Mumbai lost all the first three matches. First, against Chennai Super Kings in the season opener, then to Sunrisers Hyderabad and to Delhi Daredevils before overcoming RCB with a highest batting show. 
In the future match, they will hope that the win will begin a series of good days as Mumbai lost the two of their encounters in the last over.

Mumbai Indians bowlers Mustafizur Rehman, Jasprit Bumrah, Mayank Markande and Krunal Pandya did well to contain a heavy-batting side like RCB and will aim to do again the good work against Rajasthan.
