Mumbai Indians Vs Rajasthan Royals - A farewell to Shane Warne

Mumbai Indians take on Rajasthan Royals at Wankhede Stadium tonight. The biggest highlight of this match would be Shane Warne. The reason being this is the last match of Rajasthan Royals in this edition of IPL and hence the last match of Shane Warne from all forms of cricket. He has already declared his retirement and would be featuring on the cricketing scene for the last time as a player. Undoubtedly one of the best bowlers of all time.

The other highlight of this match would certainly be Sachin Tendulkar Vs Shane Warne. If Sachin stays long enough till the time Warne bowls, we all would be able to see the face-off. Infact Sachin would be eager to play a vital role today and take his team home.

As far as points tally is concerned, Mumbai is placed on 4th position. A win here will ensure their place in the play offs. If they lose here they will have to face a formidable KKR which would also be the last round robin match in IPL 2011. RR is already eliminated from IPL 2011 and outcome of this match doesn't actually matter to their standings.

A lot depends upon Watson, Dravid and Taylor apart from the spin headed bowling attack of RR. For Mumbai things look fine in both bowling and batting. Munaf and Malinga are doing a superb job in bowling. Tendulkar,. Rayudu, Sharma, Pollard have to play their part. Symonds form this year has been a worry for MI.

Will it be RR who would repeat the Jaipur performance and beat MI again? Or will it be MI who would reverse the result this time? Lets wait and watch.
