WICKET! Jofra Archer strikes thrice. Quinton de Kock, looking for the big runs, is caught superbly by a forward diving Jos Buttler at long on. Mumbai Indians are heading towards a score around 180, not something they would've liked at the half-way mark of their innings.

WICKET! Jofra Archer has come back in to the attack and strikes. This time, it's the destructive Kieron Pollard who fails to time a big hit. Ends up top edging it to Shreyas Gopal who takes a fine catch.

ADDING TO THE ASHTON TURNER FAN CLUB

WICKET! Looking to make room, Suryakumar Yadav fails to read the length and has the bails on the top offstump hit and dislodged. Dhawal Kulkarni with the wicket. Not the worst thing to happen for MI though. The wicket brings the big Kieron Pollard in the middle.

FIFTY! Quinton de Kock had looked rusty for most parts of his campaign this year. But today, he has shown no signs of that. Crisp and destructive. He strokeplay has put Rajasthan Royals on the backfoot early in the game.

WICKET! Rohit Sharma, looking to play over the top, holes out to the long on fielder. Jofra Archer with the scalp. The opening pair is separated after a 96-run stand.

The ploy to bring K Gowtham back in to the attack doesn't work well for Rajasthan Royals. Rohit Sharma hammers him for a six and a couple of boundaries. He nearly gets out when he steps down the ground and the bowler darts one wide down the leg. However, the MI skipper has excellent presence of mind and in a bizarre scene, kicks the ball out. Has a laugh. 92 for no loss in 10 overs.

Liam Livinstone's has brought his latest experiment - leg breaks - out but it hasn't proved too effective. Couple of sixes by Quinton de Kock leaves him leaking 13 from the 8th over. MI 72 for no loss in 8 overs.

They can, they always could have; just like they could've played Ashton Turner today. But they believe keeping wickets intact has its own merits. The philosophy has proved counter-productive so far. But having said that, Ajinkya Rahane knows the Wankhede wicket as well as anyone playing the game today.

Given the law of averages Rohit Sharma works on, I would've taken a punt on him today if I was to make my fantasy team.

57 runs in the powerplay! This pitch is a belter, and Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock have ensured the mercies are well used.

Your guess is as good as mine

After two sedate overs, Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock have started the assault on the Rajasthan Royals new-ball pair - K Gowtham, and Dhawal Kulkarni, using the option of hitting over the in-field liberally. 41 for no loss in 4 overs.

Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock have walked out to bat. K Gowtham to open the bowling for Rajasthan.

DEEPU'S CORNER - Rohit Sharma was dismissed for golden ducks in both of Mumbai Indians' encounters against Rajasthan Royals last season.

Rajasthan Royals have made two changes to their side. Ben Stokes is injured and Riyan Prayag has been dropped. K Gowtham and Liam Livingstone have been included. Only one change for Mumbai Indians - Rohit Sharma comes in for Siddhesh Lad.

Teams:

Rajasthan Royals (Playing XI): Ajinkya Rahane(c), Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson(w), Steven Smith, Rahul Tripathi, Liam Livingstone, Krishnappa Gowtham, Jofra Archer, Shreyas Gopal, Jaydev Unadkat, Dhawal Kulkarni

Mumbai Indians (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma(c), Quinton de Kock(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Alzarri Joseph, Rahul Chahar, Jason Behrendorff, Jasprit Bumrah

TOSS Rajasthan Royals have won the toss and elected to field. Ajinkya Rahane believes the pitch will get better to bat on as the match progresses. Rohit Sharma doesn't think the pitch will make a difference.

Hello and welcome to Match 27 of IPL 2019, between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals. While on the one hand, Mumbai have gained some momentum to their IPL 2019 campaign, Rajasthan Royals are in much need of that. They have only one win under their belt. With Rohit Sharma expected to return for the clash today, the task is only expected to get tougher for the visitors.

Rajasthan Royals might be the visitors today but several members in the thinktank know the conditions of Wankhede pretty well - be it Ajinkya Rahane and Dhawal Kulkarni among players or the duo of Amol Muzumdar and Sairaj Bahutule or Zubin Barucha in the management.

Can Rajasthan Royals open doors for some mid-season success? Here's the preview
