MCA vs RJS Team Previews
Led by Ajinkya Rahane, Mumbai has put up an exceptional performance so far in the season and comfortably sits at the top of Group A on the points table. The top-order batsmen, particularly Prithvi Shaw, have provided Mumbai with great starts in every game, and as a result, the team has remained unbeaten thus far this season.
After failing to cut the national team, Prithvi has been piling up runs in the domestic circuit, and registered his maiden T20 century in the match against Assam, scoring a blistering 134 off just 61 deliveries. He has been ably supported by Yashasvi Jaiswal and Aman Hakim Khan, both of whom have chipped in at crucial times. All in all, the Mumbai batting line-up is currently one of the strongest in the tournament.
Talking about the bowling, Tushar Deshpande has been in good form, picking up 7 wickets from 3 matches. However, others, including Dhaval Kulkarni and Shams Mulani are yet to show their true worth.
Mumbai Playing 11
Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawal Kulkarni, Hardik Tamore, Mohit Avasthi, Prithvi Shaw, Sarfaraz Khan, Shivam Dube, Shreyas Iyer, Shams Mulani, Tushar Deshpande, Tanush Kotian, Yashasvi Jaiswal.
Rajasthan lost its opening match, but since then played some good cricket to win the next two matches. The match played against Railways was a close one, where batting first, Rajasthan put up a score of 167. Railways appeared to be on track to win until the last 2 overs of the match, but in the end, fell short by 8 runs.
Despite the favorable results in the last couple of games, the Rajasthan team lacks the consistency that is needed to reach the top of the table. Yash Kothari is the only batsman who has been able to score runs freely. In the bowling department too, except Aniket Choudhary, none of the bowlers have caused much trouble to the batting side.
This can be an area of major concern against a solid batting line-up like Mumbai.
Rajasthan Royals Playing 11
Abheejet Tomar, Aniket Choudhary, AL Menaria, Anirudh Chouhan, Kunal Singh Rathore, Ravi Bishnoi, Samarpit Joshi, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Mahipal Lomror, Rahul Chahar, Salman Khan.
