Dravid and Rahane to open for Rajasthan, Johnson will bowl the first over. The third ball was bowled at the pads and Dravid flicks that towards deep square leg for a boundary! The fifth ball was a bouncer and Dravid is given out caught behind! And that reaction from Dravid has to be one of the rarest of moments in IPL history. He stands at the crease for a while and expresses his anger against the umpire, drags himself out of the ground and almost bangs his bat near the dugout. Five from the first over. James Faulkner is the new man in.

Ankeet Chavan to bowl the first over and Glenn Maxwell and Aditya Tare will open for Mumbai. Just two from the first over.

====================================================================================

TOSS: Rajasthan have won the toss and they have decided to bowl first.

Rajasthan Royals have pulled off some spectacular chases in the last few matches as Shane Watson has played some significant knocks for them at a quick pace. Ajinkya Rahane too has scored four half-centuries for his team and along with Dravid, he has provided decent starts in several matches. Dravid has wisely used his bowlers and even though bowling continues to be their weak link, the in-form batsmen at the top of the order have won matches for their side while chasing.

Mumbai Indians comprehensively defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous match where Kieron Pollard scored 66 runs from 27 balls and took the match away. Mumbai bowlers had a horrible day at the field in their previous match as Shikhar Dhawan and Cameron White clobbered them all over the park. It will be another crucial match for Mumbai and their batting as well as bowling would be tested against Rajasthan who have been in some terrific form of late.
