Having been condemned to defeat in their opening fixture, MI rallied around to mount an impressive resurgence. Ever since that humbling loss, Mumbai have gone on to win three of their subsequent four matches.
What can we make of their batting line-up? Utterly ruthless. In the previous clash, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik, Krunal and Pollard took hold of the bat, registering 20s and 30s, propelling MI to a total of 208 runs. They had a magnificent strike arte of 150+.
Their bowlers were nothing short of spectacular – the pacey trio of Trent Boult, James Pattinson and Jasprit Bumrah picking up 2 wickets a piece in the game. Kieron Polland and Krunal Pandya then made their way to the pitch, completing the remaining overs to amass combined numbers of 7-0-55-1.
While Buttler remains in a rut, Samson and Smith haven’t made any major impact on away soil. Mahipal Lormor was cracking last time out, scoring a whopping 47 runs. Jofra Archer and Rahul Tewatia have both been instrumental, delivering in the last minutes to score more runs.
When it comes to bowling, Jofra Archer is the top of the pops for RR, streets ahead of every other bowler in the team. He managed decent figures of 4-0-18-11 on the previous matchday. Too expensive on the ball, Tom Curran and Jaydev Unadkat will have to do better to retain their place in the lineup.
