After his first three years with Deccan Chargers, Rohit was roped in by Mumbai Indians in 2011. Earlier in the tournament, Rohit crossed 5000 IPL runs.

Mumbai Indians looks the most compact team in the tournament after the initial two weeks in the tournament. For the most part of it, they have remained at the top of the points table. Different players have put their hand up at different phases in the tournament to get the job done for the team.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals have beaten Mumbai Indians in the last four matches The Royals have won all their last game chasing. However, they did not get a good start in the chase losing three wickets in the powerplay.

After losing the first game against CSK, Mumbai were rather unfortunate to lose to RCB in the Super Over. Since then, the Rohit Sharma led-team has been on a winning run having won against Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last two games. With the Royals already three down inside the powerplay chasing 194, Mumbai looks good to bag another win today.
