Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals

Mumbai Indians will host Rajasthan Royals on Sunday

Having notched up three straight wins after a string of losses, Mumbai Indians would be looking to defeat Rajasthan Royals (RR) and inch closer to a play-off berth when the two sides face each other here on Sunday.

The English quicks: Three of Rajasthan's overseas players were from Old Blighty and each had a major role to play in their victory over Mumbai.

Buttler's England team mate Ben Stokes and Sussex all-rounder Jofra Archer took two wickets apiece as the Royals restricted holders Mumbai to 168 for six in their 20 overs.

Supreme Court on Monday struck down a federal law that bars states from authorizing sports betting . Sports leagues challenged the law citing the 1992 law, and they won in federal court.

While Mumbai are fielding an unchanged team, Rajasthan have replaced Prashant Chopra, Ankit Sharma and Ish Sodhi by Shreyas Gopal, Dhawal Kulkarni and D'Arcy Short.

In that match, Archer bowled a mix of wide yorkers and short balls to concede only 12 runs off eight balls to MS Dhoni, and that included an inside-edged boundary. "Great win. Jofra's couple of wickets in one over changed the game". With the ball too, their fortunes have been better, with Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya combining well in the fast bowling department, while spinners Krunal Pandya and Mayank Markande have been effective throughout. Although Hardik came away with 2 wickets, he still had an economy of 13.00. In their last game, Buttler carried his bat with a 95 not out to see his team through by four wickets against CSK. Meanwhile, Skipper Ajinkya Rahane came on the the crease and contributed a hefty 37 runs before being dismissed. Rahane (243 runs) and Ben Stokes (185) have been below-par and head coach Shane Warne will be relieved if they fire on Sunday. In the games that we lost in the past, we didn't finish well with the bat.

But Archer used different tactics - primarily bounce with his high-arm action - to finish with 4-0-16-2 against Mumbai.

Suryakumar, who also got an early let-off, being dropped by Krishna Gowtham off Dhawal Kulkarni early in the second over, went on to post a steady 38 off 31 deliveries.
