It is a high-profile encounter at the TATA IPL where it is a clash of top former and current players.

It will be Mahela Jayawardene vs Kumar Sangakkara and Lasith Malinga, Rohit Sharma vs Sanju Samson, Kieron Pollard vs Shimron Hetmyer and many more.

Talking about their last fixtures, Mumbai Indians lost their last encounter against the Delhi Capitals.

Mumbai will try to come stronger in this match.

Rajasthan on the other hand, have won their previous encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad by 61 runs.

Additionally, Rajasthan this time around has players who have the ability to perform in crucial situations.

This has strengthened the team in a whole new way.

The happy news for Mumbai is that Suryakumar Yadav is absolutely fit and will be available for selection in today’s game.

But for Rajasthan, it remains to be seen whether Nathan Coulter-Nile recovers from his injury or not.

This contest is surely mouth-watering today.
