Steve Smith's Rajasthan Royals have run hot and cold in this IPL 2020. After beating Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets on October 19, RR crashed to an eight-wicket loss versus Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game on October 22. This inconsistency has hurt the team's campaign and the Royals, eight points from 11 matches, can ill afford another poor show against defending champions Mumbai Indians in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.
MI are on a high after a 10-wicket win against Chennai Super Kings on Friday and a win vs RR will guarantee them a spot in the IPL playoffs. Mumbai have 14 points from 10 matches and have the healthiest run-rate in IPL 2020. Watch live streaming of RR vs MI.

Mumbai Indians were without an injured Rohit Sharma in their last game against CSK. Kieron Pollard led a team that has looked complete in all aspects. Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah polished off the CSK top order and a reckless MS Dhoni gifted his wicket to leg-spinner Rahul Chahar. Then opener Ishan Kishan and Quinton de Kock made shortwork of a 115-run target and MI won with more than seven overs to spare. It remains to be seen how MI batsmen handle the lethal pace of Jofra Archer. In the first leg clash between RR and MI, Archer took 1 for 34 in his four overs as Mumbai won by a whopping 57 runs. Sunday's clash will be a match between RR's top order batsmen and MI's well-rounded bowling attack.
