With both Rajasthan and Mumbai locked on 10 points from 11 games, neither can afford a slip-up in Sunday's encounter if they want to qualify for the play-off stages on their own. Ben Cutting and Hardik Pandya might have wrecked their batting. Jasprit Bumrah (12 wickets), and young leggie Mayank Markande (14 wickets) also have to buck up.
In their last game, Rajasthan Royals came from behind to steal an improbable run chase at their home ground in Jaipur, but their fortunes have slipped since then, having won just four out of their 10 games. Rahane (243 runs) and Ben Stokes (185) have been below-par and head coach Shane Warne will be relieved if they fire on Sunday. The venue of the match is at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Stokes, the costliest buy in IPL auction 2018, has also failed in his bowling, picking up only three wickets so far. Rahane who was rightly troubled by the partnership made a decision to use his trump card and sent in Archer to bowl the 11over.
