RR vs MI Live Score

Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians

Welcome to the live coverage of Match 38 of the IPL 2024 season between the Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians.

RR vs MI Pitch Report

The Sawai Mansingh Pitch has been on the slower side considering how other matches have gone at other venues. While there have been scores of 180-190, it’s still not that high when you consider 280+ totals. As for today’s match, it is middle pitch with 67m on either side and 76m straight boundary size. The pitch is dry and that could help the spinners eventually. Brian Lara believes there could be bounce as well with a lot of moisture on the pitch.

Ro-Ish ready

Mumbai Indians have banked heavily on the batting of the opener duo. And if they can survive Trent Boult’s first over magic, MI can still pull off a win over RR.

Can MI show consistency?

Mumbai Indians have ebbed and flowed this season. With three wins from 7 games, they need to push in the back 7 to make it to the playoffs.
