Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians have lost three games apiece and faced issues due to their key players’ unavailability and fitness. RR defeated DD and RCB in successive matches before they lost to KKR and CSK by big margins. Mumbai lost their first three games of the season by one wicket or on the last ball of the game while defending totals. However, they bounced back strongly against RCB with a big 46-run win that will boost their confidence ahead of the away fixture against RR.
