Mumbai vs Rajasthan on April 1

 

Mumbai Indians have had a terrible start to their season under new captain Hardik Pandya. They lost to Gujarat Titans in their opening game by six runs in Ahmedabad. In their second encounter, they conceded a record 277 runs in their 20 overs against Sunrisers Hyderabad before being restricted to 246/5 in Hyderabad. After two disappointing results, Mumbai will be playing in front of their home fans for the first time. It will be interesting to see the reception Hardik gets at the ground, which is the home of Rohit Sharma, who the all-rounder replaced as MI skipper. Hardik's decision-making has been criticized in the first couple of games and he hasn't made a mark with the bat and ball. The 30-year-old has also been booed at the stadiums. Hardik will have to dig deep and come out with a performance that wins the hearts of the MI faithful. Rajasthan Royals are two of the three unbeaten sides in IPL 2024 thus far. They started with a 20-run win against Lucknow Super Giants in Jaipur. In their second game, Sanju Samson and Co. got the better of Delhi Capitals in a tight affair.

Best economical pick Riyan Parag has been batting well in the ongoing season of the IPL. In the first match against LSG, he rescued RR from an early collapse. Against DC, he was the key performer registering a career-best 84(45) which helped RR to win.

Top captains & vice captains – Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 24 off 12 balls against Lucknow in the first game before getting out for 5 against Delhi. He has been in imperious touch in the lead-up to the IPL. Wankhede Stadium is the southpaw's home ground when he plays for Mumbai in domestic cricket. He will know exactly what to expect from the surface. Last year, he smashed a 62-ball 124 against Mumbai Indians at this venue. He will be hoping to replicate his heroics once again this season. Rohit Sharma has batted well in both the games so far. Against GT, he scored 43 runs in 29 balls. Against SRH, he gave a brisk start to MI before perishing. Against RR, he is likely to perform well given the home conditions.

Smart pick – Trent Boult will be returning to his former IPL home where he had done quite well, especially with the new ball. In the 2020 season, he picked up 25 wickets in 15 matches at an economy rate of 7.97. The new ball does a bit under the lights at the Wankhede Stadium. He will look to make the best use of it and give Rajasthan some early wickets.

Cautious Pick – Suryakumar Yadav is set to miss the match against RR due to an injury. Hence, it is not ideal to have him in the team.

My XI – Yashasvi Jaiswal (Captain), Rohit Sharma (Vice-Captain), Trent Boult, Riyan Parag, Jasprit Bumrah, Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Tilak Varma, Shimron Hetmyer
