Cricket Free Tips | IPL 2021, Match 51: Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians

The 51st match of the IPL 2021 will pit Rajasthan Royals against Mumbai Indians. Both teams are vying for the final playoff berth. Therefore this is a must-win match for them. Rajasthan Royals kept their playoff hopes alive by defeating the current table-toppers Chennai Super Kings by 7 wickets with 15 balls remaining in their previous encounter. They made numerous adjustments to their starting lineup and achieved the desired result. The tournament remains wide open, and Rajasthan must win their final two games to qualify for the playoffs.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, has had a difficult time putting together consistent performances this season. They fell to Delhi in the last match and will be looking for a perfect performance in this one. They have battled on a sluggish Sharjah surface in this leg, and their batsmen must step up to compliment the bowlers’ efforts.

 

Weather
With an average temperature of roughly 34 degrees Celsius, it should be a nice and bright evening in Sharjah.

 

Pitch
The pitch in Sharjah is slower than in previous games, so batters will have to fight hard for their runs. There aren’t many swings on offer for the pacers, who will be in the firing line early on. Because of the nature of the track, the spinners will be used as the match goes. The pacers will also try to slow things down, making for an exciting bat-and-ball battle. After winning the toss, both teams will bat first, with 150-160 being a good score for the venue.
