IPL 2020: MI vs RR, Match 20 Updates: Mumbai eye win over Rajasthan to go top of table

Abu Dhabi, October 6: Mumbai Indians will look to get back on top of the table when they face Rajasthan Royals in Match 20 of the IPL 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday (October 6).

The off colour Royals may look to alter their Indian line-up slightly as they try to pull their IPL 2020 campaign back on track, but standingin their way is a supremely confident Mumbai Indians, who look like solid and settled outfit.

Starting with a bang at Sharjah on a conducive batting surface, Royals have suddenly hit a slump on bigger grounds of Dubai and Abu Dhabi with their willow-wielders not looking half as menacing as they did during the first two games.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have been solid in their last couple of games and are currently on top of the table by virtue of a better net run-rate compared to Delhi Capitals, also on six points.

Royals, who need to wait for star all-rounder Ben Stokes' availability, may axe a few of the Indian players and may also look to test their overseas players. Mumbai Indians, however, may stick to their winning combo barring any forced changes due to injuries.

Although it's very early, both teams will still look for a win to solidify their chances for the IPL 2020 play-off spots.
