Mumbai Indians interim captain Kieran Pollard won the toss and elected to bat in Sunday’s match against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi as part of the IPL 2020 season. Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the match due to injury. No changes were made in the Rajasthan final squad. A change has taken place in the Mumbai team. Pattinson replaces fast bowler Coulter Nile.
Mumbai Indians, who have played 10 matches in the latest season, have won the edition and remain at No. 1 in the points table. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, are bottom of the table with 11 wins from just four matches. That team must win at least today’s match to stay in the playoff race.
