Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma has won the toss and elected to bowl vs Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Tuesday in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. For Mumbai Indians, Ishan Kishan and Jimmy Neesham are back in the playing XI in place of Quinton de Kock and Krunal Pandya. Mayank Markande and Akash Singh are out of Rajasthan Royals playing XI as Shreyas Gopal and Kuldip Yadav have been named in the squad. Both teams are tied on points after 12 games but RR are ahead on the points table thanks to better net run-rate. Rajasthan are coming into the game after a 7-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) where opener Yashasvi Jaiswal and all-rounder Shivam Dube stole the show with their quick-fire innings. Jaiswal got to his fifty in just 19 balls vs CSK while Dube scored 64 runs and remained not out in the chase of 190 runs. Mumbai Indians lost their previous match against Delhi Capitals (DC) by 4 wickets after yet another batting failure. Any of the two teams could get into the playoffs if they win their remaining two matches including this clash. (LIVE SCORECARD)
