The first Match of the midweek double-header in the Dream11 Indian T20 League will be contested between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Rajasthan Royals (RR). Both the teams have registered the same number of wins in this edition so far.
Although Rajasthan have played a game less than Mumbai. The Pink team ended their 2 match losing run with a thumping performance against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). They would be willing to carry on their winning moment coming into this match.
On the flip side is Mumbai, who are currently on a losing run of 2 games. The defending champions are dealing with the sorry form of their middle order and that has been costing them.
It is hard to pick a favourite for this match but due to a more balanced and settled team, Mumbai hold the edge over Rajasthan. That being said, Both the teams are capable enough to take themselves in the upper half of the table.
