Match 42 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will see Mumbai Indians (MI) clash against table-toppers Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Sunday in their fortress at the Wankhede Stadium. This encounter will be more memorable for Mumbai, as the franchise will celebrate 10 years of Rohit Sharma's captaincy.

Mumbai holds an advantage over Rajasthan, winning 15 matches in comparison to 13. In Wankhede, this number comes down to four Mumbai wins against three Rajasthan wins.  

With this being the only time they will meet each other in the group stage this season, the winner will get bragging rights until the next time.

Team Preview

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai are coming off a heavy defeat in their last game against Gujarat Titans, where they failed in all departments. Sharma and Co. will also have to do away with bad memories of Wankhede this season, having lost two out of three here.

They will be bolstered by the availability of Jofra Archer, who, unlike his economical self, has been hit for runs. The top-order is expected to come good on a ground that has small square boundaries and is known to help batters come into form.

Much will once again rely on Piyush Chawla, who has been tremendous in providing MI breakthroughs in the powerplay against an explosive line-up like the Royals. 

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan will want to keep their winning momentum going as the business end of the tournament nears. A slip-up here could deny Rajasthan a direct entry into the final.

Since the start of the season, the Sanju Samson-led side have looked well-balanced, with both their overseas and domestic players performing well. They might include Trent Boult in the playing XI, given his familiarity with conditions in Mumbai.
