On Sunday at the Wankhede Stadium, match number 42 of the IPL 2023 will feature Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Rajasthan Royals. At 7:30 PM IST, the game will begin. After dropping four of their first seven games, Mumbai is ranked eighth in the ten-team points standings.
On the other hand, Rajasthan, who have won five of their last eight games, are currently in second place. But the team’s last three games have all ended in losses for them. In their most recent game, they defeated the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 32 runs. Mumbai has dropped their last two games.
Let’s take a look at the batters who can score the most runs in the match
1 Ishan Kishan: The Mumbai Indians (MI) opening player has yet to have a significant impact on Mumbai this season. He has participated in seven games so far, scoring 183 runs at an average of 26.14 and a strike rate of 129.78. So far, he has only reached fifty.
He has played eight games against Rajasthan and totalled 242 runs at an average of 34.57 and a strike rate of 135.29. He has scored 1 and 13 in the last two games. Aiming to win the game for his team, the Southpaw would like to get back on track.
2 Suryakumar Yadav: He hasn’t been able to reach his full potential this season. The right-hander, though, has displayed glimmers of a comeback in his most recent outings.
He has scored 23 runs, 57 runs, 7 runs, and 43 runs over the last four innings. He has scored 146 runs with an average of 20 points and a strike rate of 171 points in seven IPL 2023 games so far. He has faced Rajasthan in 12 games and scored 399 runs with an average of 39.90 and a strike rate of 138.54.
3 Sanju Samson: The captain of the Rajasthan Royals scored 198 runs in eight games at an average of 24.75 and a strike rate of 151.14 in the IPL 2023. The extremely dangerous batsman was dismissed for 17 and 22 against CSK and RCB, respectively, in the most recent two games despite getting off to a strong start.
He would be hoping to defeat Mumbai at Wankhede with a big win. In the 20 games he’s played against them, he’s scored 537 runs at an average of 28.26 and a strike rate of 141.68.
