Jayant Yadaf will be a key player in Mumbai.
India’s T20 League 2021 has entered the final week of league stage games. Rajasthan and Mumbai face each other to survive in the tournament. Thanks to their poor net run rate, the defeat will end one of the team’s hopes of reaching the playoffs. Rajasthan is confident after chasing 190 in the previous game without making a fuss about Chennai.
Meanwhile, Mumbai is struggling for consistent performance this season. They lost to Delhi in a former encounter and were desperate for an ideal outing in the game. They are struggling with the surface of this leg’s slow Sharjah and their batters need to step up to complement the bowler’s good show.

Yashasvi Jaiswal blindfolded a knock against Chennai. In power play itself, he beat the half-century of 19-ball, the second fastest IPL-capless player in history. Again, the first six overs are very important in Sharjah’s slow pitch, allowing Jaswal to challenge Mumbai bowling, which is already under a lot of pressure.
Many will be surprised to see the name of Jayant Yadaf here. However, Rajasthan has five left-handers in the top seven, and off-spinners can really help in the middle over. Not many people choose him on the team, so some wickets to him are also huge with fantasy cricket.
