Rohit Sharma led Mumbai Indians is not performing as well as the team could, and is going through a tough time. The team is hanging in the middle of the ranking table with two wins from five matches. On the other hand, the Rajasthan Royal is at a seventh point on the table, a six-wicket victory over KKR must have boosted the team's confidence. Today's win will help the Royals to reach the four-point on the points table.
On head-to-head count, both teams have won 12 matches against each other and the count will tilt in the favor of one team on Thursday (today) at the National Capital.
