It’s the biggest match of the 2013 IPL season as Rajasthan Royals take on Mumbai Indians with the winner booking themselves a place in the final against Chennai Super Kings.
It’s the second qualifier of the play-offs with Mumbai having another chance to reach the final having lost to Chennai in the first qualifier on Tuesday.
Rajasthan meanwhile continued their impressive season by beating Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets on Wednesday and are just one more victory will see them in their first IPL final since winning the inaugural competition in 2008.
Under the leadership of Rahul Dravid the franchise have been in fine form this year and the emergence of young batting supremo Sanju Samson has repaid the veteran’s faith in youth.
Openers Shane Watson and Ajinkya Rahane have also looked in good stead in the middle whilst Dravid himself has rolled back the years with some impressive knocks.
With the ball Australian James Faulkner looks dangerous, although he still has some way to go to catch up with Mumbai’s Twenty20 master Lasith Malinga.
The Sri Lankan had a slow start to the sixth edition of the IPL but has now found his feet and has become the first bowler in history to reach 100 wickets in the 20-over format.
Paceman Mitchell Johnson has acted as the perfect support to Malinga, whilst with the bat captain Rohit Sharma has proved anyone who doubted him wrong.
