Mumbai Indians (MI) will be welcoming Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 14th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2024). The match is being played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

It will be MI’s first home game of the season and they would be looking to make the most of the home advantage. On the other hand, RR will be playing an away game for the first time in IPL 2024 and will be keen to extend their winning start.

MI are eyeing their first win of the season after losing their first two games. In the first game, they suffered a 6-run defeat at the hands of Gujarat Titans before enduring a forgettable outing against Sunrisers Hyderabad last week. SRH smashed them for a record total of 277/3 and went on to win the game by 31 runs.

RR, on the other hand, are yet to lose a game this season. The inaugural IPL champions began their campaign with a 20-run win over Lucknow Super Giants before beating Delhi Capitals by 12 runs. With momentum on their side, the Sanju Samson-led side will be eyeing another win.
