Mumbai Indians (MI) lock horns with Rajasthan Royals (RR) in this Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
The 5-time IPL champions are off to a sluggish start in IPL 2023. Presently, they are in the 2nd last position in the IPL points table with 3 wins in 7 games. They need to buckle up and take some bold calls if they are to qualify for the playoffs.
Rajasthan on the other hand, are one of the most formidable teams in IPL 2023. They have a balanced unit and boast of some quality players who are match-winners.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s MI vs RR game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai:
1. Piyush Chawla (Mumbai Indians)
Veteran Indian leg-spinner Piyush Chawla is having a dream IPL season. He has been consistently playing a good brand of cricket and has been picking up wickets at regular intervals. In the previous game of MI versus Gujarat Titans (GT), Chawla bagged 2 wickets at an economy of 8.50.
He is also Mumbai’s highest wicket-taker in IPL 2023 with 11 wickets under his belt.
2. Cameron Green (Mumbai Indians)
Australian all-rounder Cameron Green has finally hit the ground running in this year’s IPL. Bought for a whopping amount of Rs.17.50 crores, Green had a lot of weightage on his shoulders.
However, he has absorbed all the enormous amounts of pressure and has been playing extremely well. In 7 games so far, he has mustered 199 runs and has taken 5 wickets. You can most certainly make him the vice-captain in your fantasy team.
3. Yashasvi Jaiswal (Rajasthan Royals)
One of the most talented Indian cricketers of our generation, Yashasvi Jaiswal has been in sublime form in IPL 2023. He is so far RR’s highest run-getter and has scored 304 runs in 8 games. Jaiswal has a decent strike-rate of 147.57 and has smashed 10 sixes and 40 fours so far in IPL 2023.
Jaiswal played a classy knock of 77 runs in 43 deliveries in RR’s previous game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and bagged the player of the match award in that game. He surely is a vital cog in the wheels of Rajasthan Royals and his batting in the powerplay overs will be extremely crucial for the runners-up of last year’s IPL.
