Match Preview: Rajasthan Royals v/s Mumbai Indians

Ahmedabad

With each team already having played 2 games by now, fans seem to have gotten a gist of what to expect this season as far as team form, composition, plans and strategies go. Of course, with wooden spooners Delhi Daredevils, these plans are always subject to suicidal leadership decisions. 

Here’s a somewhat-true number-crunching preview of the big-ticket game on Tuesday—a game that will hold no hostages, with players like Rohit, Steve Smith, Faulkner, Watson, Anderson and Malinga set to grace the not-so-hallowed turf of Amdavad:

2: Number of losses Mumbai Indians have endured out of 2 games this season.
2: The number of weeks it has taken Karnataka Captain and Ranji hero Vinay Kumar to go from hero to zero, with zero wickets from both games.
2: The number of ducks Rohit is expected to score before he proves his inconsistency with a century.

5: Number of potential uncapped young/old cricketers in this game who could make a mark: Hooda, Samson, Nair, Tambe, Tare.
4: Number of days it could take Harbhajan Singh to declare that he is the team’s sole all-rounder. Not Pollard and Anderson.

11: No. of T20 League defeats Delhi Daredevils have suffered on the trot, a joint-record.
11: Number of wickets their spin-duo Mishra and Tahir will have to take every match to ensure that they don’t lose by heavy margins.
10: Number of games it will take Mumbai Indians, under the mentorship of Ponting, Wright, Rhodes, Tendulkar, Bradman, Richards, Gavaskar, Sobers, to hit their stride this season.

0.7: Positive Net run rate of RR going into this game, thanks to three World Champion Aussies in their line-up.
0.7: Chances of out-of-form-forever Finch to connect against Faulkner in the first few overs.
7: Number of times Steve Smith will have to show his ID during this season when heading into a pub.
