The 42nd match of IPL 2023 and the 1000th match in the history of the league will be played between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals on Sunday evening. In this match, the second and 9th number teams of the points table will be face to face. However, the team of Mumbai Indians is not that weak. That team has played only 7 matches and has won three of them. While in the last few matches, Rohit Sharma’s team lost the match due to looting runs in the death over after getting hold. If we talk about Arjun Tendulkar’s discussion everywhere in today’s match. Junior Tendulkar will have a real test in this match. He will face the challenge of dangerous batsmen like Jos Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal in the initial overs.
According to the update received before this match, Joffra Archer has been declared available by head coach Mark Boucher. In such a situation, it will be a challenge for Archer to deal with the Rajasthan batsmen. Only one of the bowlers, Jason Behrendorff or Riley Meredith, will be able to make it. Everyone’s eyes will be on Cameron Green, the second most expensive player of the IPL. If we talk about Royals, apart from Butler and Jaiswal, all eyes will be on captain Sanju Samson. For the last few matches, the shine of his bat has not been seen. Also dealing with youngsters Dhruv Jurel and Devdutt Padikkal will be a tough challenge for Rohit Sharma’s brigade.

Arjun Tendulkar made an economical start
Arjun Tendulkar has taken 3 wickets in his four matches so far. He has opened the bowling attack for Mumbai Indians in the last four matches. He has been economical in the first two overs on every occasion. His third over which was the 16th of the innings against Punjab Kings went for 31 runs. In this match, he took 48 runs in 3 overs and took one wicket. Other than that he has been economical so far. He has also got the team wickets in the powerplay against both Gujarat and Punjab. He dismissed Prabhsimran Singh on a brilliant yorker, and he took the wicket of veteran Wriddhiman Saha against Gujarat. Now what is Arjun’s target in front of Butler and Yashasvi, it will be a matter to be seen.

To whom will Rohit Sharma give a chance?
Talking about the playing 11 of Mumbai Indians, captain Rohit Sharma will have a big responsibility in the top order. So far he has got the start but he has not been able to do a great job. Atishi batting will also be expected from Ishaan Kishan. Apart from this, the bat of Australian all-rounder Cameron Green has started running for the last few matches. Suryakumar Yadav and Tilak Verma will be responsible for the middle order. Tim David and Nehal Wadhera can strengthen the team’s batting in the lower order. In bowling, how Arjun Tendulkar performs in this match and how Rohit Sharma uses him will also be a matter to be seen. The experienced Piyush Chawla will handle the reins of spin.
