Rajasthan Royals vs Mumbai Indians : A Battle to watch...
Rajasthan Royals, A team which was denoted as the underdogs now sit triumphantly at the top of the table, overwhelming all opposition and playing like a true champion's side to win 5 games in a row for the second time in succession...
Undefeated at home, boasting the likes of Smith, Asnodkar, Akmal, Y.Pathan, Warne, R.Jadeja, Tanvir and others who've messed a lot of dreams, are now ready for battle.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, touted as one of the favorites for the semi-finals, didnt have Tendulkar in the beginning and began the tournament horridly with 4 losses in a row and the Harbhajan slapgate incident. Under the guidance of seniors like Pollock and Jayasuriya and now Tendulkar, the Indians have sprung a surprise to come back into the tournament with a bang, 6 straight wins in a row!
But losing 2 close matches, to Kings XI and Delhi Daredevils have given their semi-final berths a slight setback, now they need 2 wins in their last 2 matches against Rajasthan and Bangalore respectively. If they lose any of these 2, their Semi-Final dreams are almost over, unless Deccans pull out an upset win over Chennai, who'll be keen to get over the two losses they had in order to guarantee their semi final place.
Important Facts :
1) Graeme Smith is being rested after he pulled a hamstring while batting in the last match against Chennai Superkings. Akmal will retain his place after his swashbuckling 50, with Watson coming back, or probably Younis Khan given a chance.
2) Rajasthan, have so far been undefeated at home in the 6 matches that they've played so far.
3) Rajasthan's 5 match winning streak was broken by Mumbai when they defeated Rajasthan Royals AT home. The Royals are once again on a 5 match winning streak, will this be broken again by the Mumbai Indians?
We can only wait and see...
In my opinion... NEVER!! GO Mumbai Indians!!! FINISH THEM OFF!! GET YOUR REVENGE LIKE YOU GOT FROM Kolkata Knight Riders!!!
