The Rajasthan Royals started the Indian Premier League 2020 season well, winning two in the first two matches. But two consecutive defeats against Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore have exposed a rift in the franchise’s armor. The RR is heavily reliant on its top-order and can make a change to promote middle-order that appears to be struggling.

Here is our predicted XI for RR against MI in IPL 2020 match:
Jose Butler (wk): Jose Butler has not completely lost his game in the tournament. He needs to give his best, or Ben Stokes’ arrival could see him in the team.
Mi vs RR Live Score
Steven Smith (c): Steve Smith has to lead from the front. He needs to take responsibility at the top as the middle order is struggling.
Sanju Samson: Sanju Samson has been the best player for RR so far, but he needs to be careful with his shots selection. He cannot deliver his wicket.

Robin Uthappa: Robin Uthappa has been the biggest disappointment of RR so far. He needs to change or change himself.
Mahipal Lomror: Mahipal Lomror had shown in the last game that he could hit big shots. He needs to continue in the same form.
Yashasvi Jaiswal: The struggling pollen could replace itself with Yashasvi Jaiswal. Jaiswal needs to deliver like Devadatta Pedikal and Priyam Garg.
Rahul Teotia: Rahul Teotia has shown that he can hit big sixes. But if the middle-order needs him to handle one end, he will have to fulfill that responsibility as well.
Tom Curren: Tom Curren has been great with the bat and the ball, but he needs to deliver a match-winning performance before Ben Stokes arrives.

Shreyas Gopal: Shreyas Gopal has been the best spinner for Rajasthan Royals. Time for him to take more wickets, though.
Jofra Archer: Jofra Archer has played her role so far. He needs to improve in the death overs though.
Jaydev Unadkat: Jaydev Unadkat may get another chance before RR management thinks about Varun Aaron.
RR Predicted XI against MI: Jos Buttler (wk), Steven Smith (c), Sanju Samson, Robin Uthappa, Mahipal Lomror, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rahul Tewatia, Tom Curran, Shreyas Gopal, Jofra Archer, Jaydev Unadkat
