Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals

"It is a do-or-die game for both Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals but Krunal wants to take one match at a time".

But skipper Ajinkya Rahane will expect his team to get their act together and aim for consistency as several must-win games have been lined up for them.

Mumbai seem to have picked up momentum at the right time, registering three consecutive wins.

"It feels really good".

He may not have got many chances for his franchise in his debut IPL season, but Ish Sodhi has made his mark already, bowling a fine spell of 4-0-14-1 in the previous fixture, as RR were able to choke KXIP's run chase. The batsman from Bihar is winning hearts with his astonishing form. After Rahane's dismissal, Buttler added 61 runs with Sanju Samson, who chipped in with a useful cameo of 26 runs as Royals overhauled the target with 12 balls to spare.
