But, how they have approached the situation is the thing that separates them, and this is what is reflected in their places in the points table. Throughout this time, Mumbai Indians have coped well and currently are the table-toppers, with 7 victories in the 10 games they have played.
While Rajasthan Royals are pegge at the second last place in the points table, having won 4 games out of their 11 games. For both these sides, a win in this game could be instrumental. But, in this game, Mumbai Indians will hold an upper hand over Rajasthan Royals and it will take a special effort by the Rajasthan Royals side to get past Mumbai Indians.
On Sunday, the weather will be clear in Abu Dhabi as usual, with no chance of rain and temperatures will stay around 29 degree Celsius.
At the beginning of the tournament, the pitch at Sheikh Zayed Stadium did not favour the batsmen at all, but now chasing is the most viable choice on this surface. The bowlers will enjoy little support from the surface and will have to use it to work their way through the match.
