IPL 2023: Though it is the Rajasthan Royals who are dominating with their stellar performance with both the bat and especially the ball, the Mumbai Indians are not a less competent opposition in the league, though they do not have many chances to qualify for the playoffs, especially due to their low run rate.
Let’s take a look at the 5 most highly scorching battles between the players from both sides:
1. Yesashvi Jaiswal vs Piyush Chawla
The Indian batter has shown his superiority in the format and has been the Royals’ best performer in IPL 2022; it is, therefore, necessary to get rid of him early, as the MI bowlers would be troubled by his long stay. Piyush, who has been their only striking bowler, would be given this role.
2. Jos Buttler vs Jason Behrendorff
Buttler has been RR’s best batter for years but has not been in very convincing form this year; still, he remains their most formidable batter. MI bowlers are mostly good in the powerplay, and Behrendorff often performs with the new ball for the Indians.
The England wicketkeeper has been off-form in the IPL 2023 so far. Thus, Jason Behrendorff will probably not have to shed a lot of sweat while scalping his wicket.
3. Cameron Green vs Adam Zampa
The veteran player of the format has been delivering as one of the finest batters of the game since he donned the MI jersey. Similar is his role in the MI lineup, and to restrict him, his countryman Adam Zampa can be a good choice.
Cameron Green has been good but highly inconsistent in IPL 2023. Adam Zampa can thus cause a lot of trouble for his fellow Australian.
4. Dhruv Jurel vs Cameron Green
Dhruv Jurel has impressed cricket fans in the IPL after his power-hitting role in the Royals lineup took fans by surprise. Green has been resistant with the ball, though not much in the Wankhede Pitch. Still, he can resist him at the death.
5. Suryakumar Yadav vs Yuzvendra Chahal
SKY is marking a return to form and is showing some prolific skills playing for the Indians again, and a deserving batting track like the Wankhede would again favor his skills as a batsman. Sky’s caliber against pace is known to all; however, Chahal might deceive him as his hand is a little tight against leg spinners.
