Mumbai Indians are facing Rajasthan Royals in the 42nd match of IPL 2023 and the historic 1000th match of the league. In this match, Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson won the toss and chose to bat. Captain Rohit Sharma made two major changes in his team for this match. The biggest change was the exclusion of Arjun Tendulkar from the team. Along with this, the team has also got a dangerous player back in the team. This is Mumbai’s 8th match this season. Before this, the team has won 3 matches and lost in four.
Arjun Tendulkar opened the bowling for Mumbai Indians in the last four matches. He was also economical, bowling the first over in all the matches. Apart from his 31 in his 16th over against the Punjab Kings, he was economical. He also took three wickets in 4 matches. He also showed his batting prowess by scoring 13 runs off 4 balls in the end against Gujarat. But Rohit Sharma has given a chance to Arshad Khan for this high voltage match.
