The champs have won five times. Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on inaugural champions Rajasthan Royals (RR) in match number 9 of the Tata Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 at the DY Patil Stadium on 2nd April 2023. Read the article to know about MI Vs RR 2023 playing 11, dream11 prediction, players list.
MI Vs RR 2023
The Mumbai Indians (MI), led by Rohit Sharma, were defeated in their jinxed opening match of the season for the second time. Delhi Capitals beat Mumbai Indians by four wickets in the season’s opening match, continuing a nine-year record of losing the first match.
Mumbai City’s batting performance was outstanding. Opening shots were fired, and the middle-order provided solid resistance and timely bounds. Furthermore, the finishers performed an excellent job, yet, bowing became their primary concern after a while.
The Mumbai Indians’ bowlers were dissatisfied with the loose boundaries they conceded against the Delhi Capitals. Even Jasprit Bumrah struggled against the Washington Capitals on that particular day. Because all of the brand’s stars were distributed at the auction, the franchise now does not have a very impressive bowling lineup.
Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals earned a crushing win against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in their opening encounter. The RR team, captained by Sanju Samson, scored a mammoth 210 runs with the bat, and their bowling performance was equally impressive.
MI Vs RR Playing 11
The two matches played here so far in the Tata IPL 2023 have resulted in opposite outcomes. Whereas the first match developed into a high-scoring thriller, the second match was decided by a modest score. The boundaries in the stadium are short, so the spinners will have little assistance in their efforts. Meanwhile, hitters will have pleasure in their time here, but not before settling on the field’s playing surface. Dew is a genuine phenomenon, and handling a wet ball becomes more difficult. Thus, the captain who wins the toss will probably choose to bowl first.
