Table-toppers Rajasthan Royals are all set to lock horns against five-time champions Mumbai Indians in the 38th match of the Indian Premier League 2024. The two teams will have a go at each other at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur which is turning out to be a fortress for the Royals this season.

The Royals have played four games here and have won three of them. The only time they lost at the Jaipur-based venue was when Gujarat Titans edged past them with the help of some late finish by Rashid Khan and Rahul Tewatia. RR are the team to beat this season as they have registered six wins in their seven outings. They sit on the edge of qualifying for the playoffs.

Meanwhile, MI have been hot and cold with three wins in their seven games. They started with three losses, won the next two, lost the subsequent one before winning their seventh game of the season. In the last meeting between these two sides, RR registered an easy 6-wicket win over Hardik Pandya's side.

Sawai Mansingh Stadium pitch report
