Predictions and expectations:
The first match is going to be a tough competition with both MI and RR having won 12 matches against each other so far. The stadium is known to offer tough competition so far with an average of 163 in the first innings in a T20 match.
IPL Live score:
While the MI have lost their last 2 matches under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, they would be fierce today taking into consideration their record of 5-time champions, as predicted by the crictracker. The RR on the other hand seems quite confident after a massive win over the KKR in their last counter. While Bumrah has an amazing economy of 6.36 and is a trustworthy bowler for the MI, the RR has Samson with a trustworthy run rate. A lot still depends on the openers of both teams and the captaincy as well.

The second match too won’t be a waste of time, said rightfully by india.com, with DC having lost the previous one and KKR having won against PBKS. It would be a challenge for Gill to prove himself and remove the tag that calls him overrated in the present season. Raina too has a comparatively poor performance in IPL 2021. The KKR placed at 5, would try their hardest to bring back their days of fame. DC too has Shaw, Dhavan, and Pant to fight back with their everything. so, let us see what these 2 games hold.
The Arun Jaitley stadium has a good pitch favoring spinners while also testing on the nerves of the batsmen. The Motera stadium on the other hand offers a great deal to the batsmen. The Seamers might also get a chance of a good game on the pitch.
