Mumbai Indians openers Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan are in the middle. Rajasthan Royals captain Steve Smith is having a chat with his men.
Steve Smith (Rajasthan Royals):
Same team. We’ve played some reasonable cricket without getting over the line. Last one was a bit disappointing. Hopefully we can get over the line. We’ve got three games, for us it’s about winning them all. See how we go.
Kieron Pollard (Mumbai Indians):
We’re going to bat. Just one change – Pattinson in for Coulter-Nile. Pitch is fairly good. Done pretty well batting first. Couple of venues dew has played a major factor. Here, not so much. Whatever you do you have to do it properly.
Rajasthan Royals: Robin Uthappa, Ben Stokes, Sanju Samson(w), Jos Buttler, Steven Smith(c), Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Ankit Rajpoot, Kartik Tyagi
Mumbai Indians: Quinton de Kock(w), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Saurabh Tiwary, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard(c), Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah
