Given the strength they possess on paper, it is a bit strange that Mumbai have won only 2 of their first 5 games in the 2021 Indian T20 League. But Rohit Sharma’s men have traditionally been slow starters, and they are likely to pick up pace from this stage onwards.
On the other hand, Rajasthan have also won 2 of their first 5 games, but they have a lot of off-the-field issues to deal with. While two of their key players in Jofra Archer and Ben Stokes are out with injuries, Andrew Tye and Liam Livingstone have recently left India, leaving them with only four foreigners.
