In game No 44 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014, Rajasthan Royals will take on Mumbai Indians at Ahmedabad. Rajasthan have done well in IPL 7 and they are sitting pretty with seven wins next to their name. But the unit still can’t take it easy, as they haven’t yet qualified for the Playoffs. For them, Shane Watson continues to be a key player, though he missed the last game against Delhi due a niggle. Steven Smith in his absence captained the side well against Delhi Daredevils, as they won convincingly. Catch Live blog of the match here.

 

Rajasthan also have some fine hitters lower down the order like James Faulkner and Smith himself. On the bowling front, Pravin Tambe continues to impress with his brand of flipper and sliders. On the other hand, Mumbai Indians the defending champions have struggled in IPL 7. They only have six points in their kitty after playing 10 games. Even their skipper, Rohit Sharma has struggled with the bat in hand. Their bowlers have been a touch inconsistent too. They need to up their game soon.
