Mumbai Indians will face Rajasthan Royals today at Wankhede Stadium. We will witness a gripping face-off between two powerful teams in the IPL. Mumbai Indians is an IPL team that has a record of holding the greatest number of IPL titles. Their performance in this season is not quite like Mumbai Indians. They surely will have a comeback this season itself. Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals is standing tall in the first position of the points table. They have won five matches out of eight matches played. Their performance this season is quite remarkable.
Wankhede Stadium is the home ground of Mumbai Indians. The pitch is assistive for batters majorly because of the flat surface of the pitch. A proper bounce and flat pitch offer a suitable scenario for batters to score maximum runs. The boundaries are comparatively shorter so we can expect high runs in this stadium. Most probably we will be witnessing a batter-centric contest.
