Top Picks For Wicket Keepers:
Sanju Samson: After the first match Sanju has failed to score big runs. The hard hitter from Kerala has the ability to fire. We saw a composed innings against KKR in the Wankhede stadium Mumbai where he played a captain’s knock, to win past KKR. Consistency has been the question for Sanju for every single year. But he has strike rate of 127 with three hundred in his bags and 13 half centuries.
Quinton De Kock: The South-African wicket keeper batsman is yet to fire in this year’s IPL. He has been one of the main contributor to his franchise Mumbai Indians to win the last year IPL. He has been performing with a strike rate of 131.88 with a hundred and 14 f=half centuries to his name. Hope he gives a good start to MI against RR
Top Picks for Batsman
Rohit Sharma: Rohit has got good start in the IPL. He has been striking the ball with a strike rate of 130.51 and has scored 154 runs with an average of 40.27. He will be eying to become the first captain in the history of IPL to secure a hattrick of title wins.
Suryakumar Yadav: Surya came with a good form, he performed brilliantly in the England T20 series. But has failed to get start for the IPL, he has score runs with an average of 30 and scored 154 runs. He will look to fire in today’s match and seek a victory for his side.
Jos Buttler: The bold wicketkeeper-batsman will be out to have an impact as RR focus on the IPL 2021 brilliance. The right-hander had scored 328 runs in the IPL 2020 and will be hoping to score huge in the IPL 2021. He has scored 89 runs with an average of 17.80.

Kieron Pollard: The big man from West Indies has been kept quite by the bowlers so far in this year’s IPL. He has been a critical part of the victorious MI squad in the 2020 season, smashing the ball at a strike rate of 191. He will look to straight the things again for MI.
