Match No. 38 of the IPL 2024 will see a RR vs MI clash on Monday in Jaipur.

Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will face each other for the second time in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Earlier, they played the 14th game of the season at Eden Gardens. MI lost that match badly after a poor batting performance.

The coming game is scheduled to take place at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on Monday. RR have been at the top of the points table since the start of the tournament, and they have a golden chance to become the first team to qualify for the playoffs here. But MI won’t be easy opponents, as they are coming off three wins in their last four games.

RR vs MI: Head-to-Head

The coming RR vs MI clash on Monday will be the 30th match between these two teams in the IPL. Mumbai Indians are slightly ahead with 15 wins as compared to Rajasthan Royals’ 13 wins. One match has ended without a result.

RR vs MI: Top five player battles to watch

1. Jos Buttler vs Jasprit Bumrah

Jos Buttler is coming off two centuries in his last four games and pulled off an unbelievable win against KKR at the Eden Gardens. He is winning matches for RR and will be a very big wicket. But he has to face Jasprit Bumrah, who has good numbers against the batter. Bumrah has dismissed Buttler five times in international cricket. In the IPL, Buttler has only scored 62 off 65 balls at a strike rate of 95.4 against Bumrah and gotten out twice.

2. Sanju Samson vs Gerald Coetzee

Gerald Coetzee is the second-highest wicket-taker for Mumbai Indians this season and has been bowling well. He is a fiery character who can rattle any batter on his day. He will have a big task when he bowls to the RR captain Sanju Samson, who has been in great form this season. This will be a great battle, and whoever gets the better of the opponent will provide an edge to his team.

3. Rohit Sharma vs Trent Boult

Rohit Sharma against Trent Boult will be an absolute cinema in the RR vs MI clash. The former MI captain is in great form and is among the highest run-scorers of the IPL 2024. But he got out on a duck when he faced Boult earlier this season. The pacer has dismissed Rohit 8 times at the international level, and even in the IPL, he has troubled him. Rohit has faced 18 balls from Boult and scored 17 runs with two dismissals.

4. Suryakumar Yadav vs Yuzvendra Chahal

Suryakumar Yadav didn’t play the last game against RR at Wankhede, but he will be playing this match. Suryakumar has already struck two half-centuries in the IPL 2024. But it won’t be easy this time around, as he will face Yuzvendra Chahal, who is very hard to score off. Chahal has dismissed SKY three times in the IPL in 71 balls and given away 83 runs.

5. Ishan Kishan vs Ravi Ashwin

Ishan Kishan has been in fine form this season and has been giving quick starts to MI. It will be very difficult to stop him once he gets going. But he has found it tough to face Ravi Ashwin in the IPL. Ishan, who is known for playing quick innings, has scored runs against Ashwin at a strike rate of 90.5. Ashwin has bowled 63 balls, given away 57 runs, and dismissed him once. What’s more interesting is that Ishan has only hit two fours and two sixes in the 63 balls he has faced from Ashwin.
