Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals Betting Tips 29/04/2021

Teams Status

Rajasthan Royals: With the tournament not even at its halfway point, Rajasthan Royals are as depleted as anyone has ever been in the tournament. The franchise have lost four of their foreign stars, with England pair Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer out injured, while Liam Livingstone and Andrew Tye having left citing bubble fatigue.

The Sanju Samson-led unit is now left with just Jos Buttler, Chris Morris, David Miller and Mustafizur Rahman, and is, therefore, seeking loan deals from other franchises.

The Royals are near the bottom of the points table, with the only thing keeping them from the pits being the super woeful Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Despite the state of their roster, they managed to defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by six wickets in their last game, thanks to Morris’ four-for. Even though his were all lower-order wickets, it stopped KKR from accelerating late in the game and eventually proved vital in getting the victory for Rajasthan.

Mumbai Indians, meanwhile, were on the wrong end of a huge upset last time out as they were thrashed by the perennial underachievers Punjab Kings by nine wickets.

The Rohit Sharma-led side’s biggest problem this campaign has been their batting. So far in this IPL, their highest score has been a modest 159. Several of their batters, including Quinton de Kock and Hardik Pandya, have yet to truly get going. Even Sharma, himself, has looked a bit different this year, often consuming more balls than he’d like for his knocks.

Mumbai have now lost two straight and Rajasthan are just the kind of team they can bounce back against with each.

Tip: Quinton de Kock to score 50 runs @ 3.74

South Africans batsman Quinton de Kock has not had a great IPL so far, failing in three of the four matches. However, he is an accumulator of runs by nature and, in theory, the more times he fails, the lesser the chances of him failing in future are. Don’t be surprised if he scores big in this match.

Tip: Mumbai Indians to win match, hit most 6s & hit most 4s @ 2.1

Through all their titles and glory, if there is one blot on Mumbai’s neatly pristine record, it’s their recent head-to-head against Rajasthan. In their last five meetings, Mumbai have lost four times to the Royals, all their defeats have been by a decent margin. That coupled with the fact that they have been scoring less than what they should, Mumbai could be doubly motivated to hit boundaries, score big and get the win.

Conclusion

Mumbai might be a bit wobbly right now but as they say, form is temporary and class is permanent. They should let their class dictate terms and get back to winning ways.This is a mismatch on paper. Sure, these matches are played on the field and not paper but still, all the advantages lie with Delhi and so they should get the job done here.
