IPL 2018 | Match 47 | MI vs RR: are to face another team with the same plight – the at the Wankhede Stadium tonight at 20:00 IST. Both teams know what it feels like to be at the bottom of the table and have made their way back up in the hopes of booking a last minute ticket to the playoffs. MI currently resides in the fifth position as RR is placed sixth after their respective wins against the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Chennai Super Kings. Both teams need wins from all their remaining games to make the playoffs.
MI has more than enough batting ammunition with the likes of Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, the Pandya Brothers and even Mayank Markande as of late. They managed to win by a massive margin in their last match with a major contribution from these batsmen.
RR’s star batsman has become Jos Buttler with his dedicated contribution to their much-needed win against the Chennai Super Kings. Sanju Samson, who started the season to make the headlines, hasn’t delivered recently but with him back in form, he can be a torpedo that will be difficult to stop. Krishnappa Gowtham has also proved to shine in desperate times with well-timed sixes that has changed the course of the game altogether to favor RR. Jofra Archer has single-handedly taken care of the bowling front.
M has been giving away too many runs with only Mayank Markande performing consistently while RR has the worry of Ben Stokes who has not delivered any performance worth the large sum of money that was paid for him.
It will be interesting to see which team’s efforts to redeem themselves will prove to be successful. Do not miss this cracker of a match.
