THE PREDICTION

All the pressure is on Rajasthan Royals coming into this clash with Mumbai Indians as they have to win their final three games to have a chance of reaching the knockout phase. The Royals are not in the best of form however as they have lost three of their last four games and while they have a couple of key men in good form like Archer and Buttler, not enough of their supporting cast are in form. They do not have many quality options to bring into the side but the experiment to open the batting with Ben Stokes has backfired so Jos Buttler will surely switch places with him for this crunch game. The Indians are in superb form and come off a ten-wicket win over CSK. Even without Rohit Sharma as they will be here, they dominated that game and their elite bowling attack really stepped up. They will take some stopping here too against this fragile Royals’ batting line-up and it is hard to see anything other than victory for Mumbai unless complacency creeps in.
