Indian T20 League 2021: Match 24 MUM vs RAJ – Fan2Play Fantasy Cricket Tips, Prediction, Playing XI and Pitch Report

Both Mumbai and Rajasthan have won 11 matches against each other.

Match Details

The 24th game of the Indian T20 League between Mumbai and Rajasthan will be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on 29th April 2021.

The match will start at 3:30 PM IST. The live streaming will be available on the Hotstar app and website.

Preview 

Mumbai and Rajasthan are coming into this match looking quite even at this moment. If we see their head-to-head record, Mumbai have won 11 matches while Rajasthan have also won 11 matches. In the 2021 edition so far, both the teams have won two matches and lost three. Rajasthan would be slightly more motivated having won their previous match against Kolkata. 

On the other hand, Mumbai are coming into this match after losing their previous match against Punjab. In fact, they have lost both their last two games. However, a change of venue might make their spirit rejuvenated. The Delhi stadium has given a few good matches in the past, and they would want to act on that good history to start off their new leg.

Having said that, this match is likely to be a tight one. Even though Mumbai have lost their last match, they will start as favourites in this contest. The pitch is likely to be good for batting, which will present us with a good game of cricket. 

Probable Playing XIs for MUM vs RAJ

Predicted XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Nathan Coulter-Nile/Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

Captaincy picks for MUM vs RAJ

Rohit Sharma (Mumbai)

Until the previous match, Sharma didn’t get a fifty in this season so far. But after his 63-run knock against Punjab, Mumbai will hope that he stands tall and continues his good form with the bat. His record in Delhi is also quite good and he has got a couple of fifties here in T20s. He should enjoy batting on this surface. 

Sanju Samson (Rajasthan) 

The captain of Rajasthan will be pleased with his match-winning knock of 42 in the previous match. Had it not been for his calm and composed innings, the match could have been put into an interesting position. It is worth noting that Samson has scored run in Delhi before and he also played for the Delhi team in two seasons in the past.
