Mumbai Indians are getting into the groove in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League. After looking a little susceptible in the initial games, MI have bounced back strongly to wins on the trot and with most of their players performing well. MI had a little worry regarding opener Quinton de Kock’s form but those fears were allayed by the South African in the last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad where he top-scored for the side.
MI will take on Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi and will have an eye on consolidating their position in the top four.
Let’s take a look at MI’s Predicted XI for IPL 2020 match against SRH:
1 Rohit Sharma: He did not fire in the last match against SRH but Rohit has shown glimpses of his destructive self in two games. He will look to fire his side to another victory.

3 Suryakumar Yadav: He hasn’t been able to get a big score in the tournament so far but he has contributed some runs in the 5 matches. Will he fire against RR?
4 Ishan Kishan: The youngster impressed again with 23-ball 31 against SRH and has continued to justify his selection in the side.
