Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals are neck and neck against each other in the 23 games in IPL history. Both teams have won 11 games each while 1 has resulted in a washout. However, since 2018, Rajasthan are ahead winning 5 out of 6 matches they have played against Mumbai. In IPL 2018 and 2019.
RR won all their 4 games which they played against MI in the league stage. The IPL 2014 game between these teams when Aditya Tare hit a six to ensure a playoff berth for his side is still etched in the memories of cricket fans.
Mumbai Indians is certainly the most dominating team currently in the IPL scenario. They were the champions in the 2019 and the 2020 season. The team has maintained its core group of players which is one of the major reasons for their consistent performance in the tournament.
Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have failed to impress in recent years. They finished at number 7 and 8 respectively in the last 2 seasons. Rajasthan Royals were the champions of the inaugural IPL season, but have disappointed with their performance since then. This year MI and RR will be playing both their league matches against each other at Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi.
Rajasthan Royals and Mumbai Indians have beaten each other 12 times in the Indian Premier League.
Last year, the two franchises locked horns twice in the United Arab Emirates. The Mumbai Indians beat the Royals by 57 runs in their first fixture. Ben Stokes’ century helped the Jaipur-based franchise win by eight wickets in the return leg.
