Preview

As the Indian Premier League 2024 enters its third week, the Mumbai Indians are gearing up to host their first game of the season at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday, April 1. The five-time IPL champions will face the Rajasthan Royals, the first-ever champions of the league.


Mumbai Indians have faced a tough start to their season under new captain Hardik Pandya, suffering defeats in their opening two games. With losses against Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai will be eager to bounce back, especially in front of their home crowd. All eyes will be on Pandya, who has faced criticism for his decision-making and performance with both bat and ball.


Meanwhile, the Rajasthan Royals have begun their campaign on a positive note, remaining undefeated in IPL 2024 so far. With wins against Lucknow Super Giants and Delhi Capitals, they are riding high on confidence. Riyan Parag has emerged as a star performer for the Royals, showcasing excellent form with the bat.
