Even amid the absence of stars, Rajasthan Royals had pulled off two sensational win in Sharjah, one of which was the highest successful chase in IPL history breaking their own previous record. But on stepping out of the high-scoring venue, Rajasthan faltered, miscalculated their plans and eventually sustained two back-to-back defeats. The team now look to bounce back, but will have to reconsider their lineup owing to the presence of three struggling players - Jaydev Unadkat, Riyan Parag and Robin Uthappa. And what makes their task tougher is that the Royals will be up against a rampaging Mumbai Indians who now won back-to-back matches while also being the first team to concede less than 200 runs at Sharjah.

After stepping out of the small boundaries at Sharjah, Rajasthan struggled on bigger grounds of Dubai and Abu Dhabi with their Sharjah heroes looking half as threatening in the successive matches.

"The last two games haven't gone to plan for us after what was a really good start to the tournament. But I guess that's the way T20 cricket goes sometimes. We have been outplayed by the opposition on both occasions," Royals skipper Steve Smith said on the eve of the match.

"Hopefully, I am able to score a few runs tomorrow. I’ve missed out on the last two games but that happens," Smith added.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have been solid both as a batting unit and as a bowling team. And with the comeback fifty from Quinton de Kock, they look a strong probable for making it to the playoffs. After a Super Over defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai bounced back strongly to defeat Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad by 48 and 34 runs respectively, and subsequently took the top spot in the points table.
