Defending champions Mumbai Indians will look to sort out their middle-order woes and bring their campaign back on track when they take on an inconsistent Rajasthan Royals in an IPL game Delhi on Thursday.
MI are coming into the match after suffering back-to-back losses, the last one being a 9-wicket defeat against Punjab Kings in Chennai and need to start the Delhi leg afresh.
The Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan have lost thrice in the tournament so far and will seek to build on the six-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders in the previous match.
Mumbai might look to change their playing XI in order to return to winning ways and could play Adam Milne in place of Jayant Yadav. The out-of-form Quinton de Kock might also have to make way for Chris Lynn, who played the first game scoring 47 runs for the 5-time champions.
The Royals might not make any changes to their lineup for this game. Dew won’t be a factor on Thursday as it is an afternoon game.
