There players have the ability to decimate opponents single-handedly on their day.
Mumbai Indians are up against Rajasthan Royals, in what is set to be an interesting encounter. MI, after a slightly mediocre start, have comprehensively returned to winning ways. They have secured back-to-back victories against KXIP and SRH, and have now started to look extremely settled.
They will look to continue their winning run. RR, captained by Steve Smith, started off with two brilliant victories, but since the time they have moved out of Sharjah, they have suffered consecutive losses.
They have with them few of the best overseas players in the IPL, but will require their Indian core to step up if they want to have chances of winning against a rampaging Mumbai team. A number of star players will be taking part in the match.
In this game, here are three players you can opt as multipliers in your Dream11 team: –
1. Jos Buttler (10 credits)
Jos Buttler has looked threatening in the last two games, but hasn’t been able to capitalise on the starts he has gotten. His scores of 21 off 16 balls against KKR and 22 off 12 balls against RCB don’t indicate the way he has been striking the ball. Mumbai are a team he enjoys batting against. He has 194 runs in three innings against them, and this could be the game he makes up for the missed opportunities.
2. Rohit Sharma (10.5 credits)
The MI skipper has looked in good touch this season. With 176 runs in five innings, Rohit has either got out early or scored a big one, and after missing out against SRH in Sharjah, he will surely look to make amends in this game. Rajasthan also don’t possess a very threatening bowling line up, and if Rohit gets past the initial 10-15 run mark, the RR fielders could be chasing leather all evening.
3. Jofra Archer (9 credits)
Jofra Archer has been on song this season. He will consider himself very unlucky to have picked just four wickets in four games. He has bowled with frightening pace as well as great accuracy. His economy of just 6.75 this season, which includes two matches played at Sharjah, is an indication of how much fear he has induced in batsmen. He has great numbers against MI as well, picking nine wickets in 16 overs. This could be the game he converts his ferocious spells into wickets.
