Rajasthan Royals are almost through to the next round but couple of wins will guarantee them the place in final four while Mumbai Indians need to win every game to avoid the elimination. As RR host MI in their last home game at Ahmedabad we take a look at some duels that will lit-up the occasion
Shane Watson vs Harbhajan Singh
Harbhajan Singh is MI’s vital cog in bowling department and his captain will want him to shell out match winning performances. So far he has had a mixed tournament with eight wickets to his name. Shane Watson is expected to be back and straightaway deliver thumping show with his bat which has been rare. He likes to go against spinners particularly off-spin and Harbhajan will be on his target.
Kieron Pollard vs. James Faulkner
Another heated battle between Australian and West Indian is on cards. The players from both countries have maintained their rivalry in IPL as well. Faulkner already has a history of taking on West Indies players that will be on Pollard’s mind and he won’t mind giving him another thrashing.
Rohit Sharma vs. Pravin Tambe
If Mumbai Indians have Harbhajan Rajasthan Royals are blessed to have Pravin Tambe. He has been amongst wickets and economical as well. Tambe won’t mind bowling against MI captain Rohit Sharma who is in good touch and will look to dominate the battle.
