IPL 2014: 44th match – Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians, May 19, 2014

The Rajasthan Royals play their final home match of the season when they take on the Mumbai Indians in Match 44 of Pepsi IPL 2014.

RR, with 14 points from 11 matches, have a foot in the Playoffs and a win in this contest will only firm up their position among the top four teams. The defending champions, Mumbai Indians, have won only three of their 10 matches so far and need to win every single match from here on to give themselves an opportunity of making it to the Playoffs.

PunterPolls Prediction

Royals have played some superb cricket in last few games against RCB and then against Delhi Daredevils. Their batsmen are batting like champs and bowlers, no doubt about it is in tremendous form. All in all this team is playing like a unit and very difficult to beat.

Mumbai Indians doesn't have only one or two problem, they have several problems. Their batsmen are performing ordinary stuff. We are very disappointed with this team, especially the way they batted against the Sunrisers. That game they played like they don't want to win at all. Their bowlers are way to relax and doesn't have any spirit left except Harbhajan, who is putting up their 100%.

Match ODDs are in favour of Rajasthan (1.80). But that is too high against a team who have won just 3 matches out of 11 they played. According to Match ODDs, Royals have 55.56%  chances of winning the game whereas 59% Punters are supporting Royals as of now.

We are not predicting the winner right now, but would like to mention that going with Royals initially is good option.
