Team Rajasthan will look to revive their Indian Premier League (IPL) campaign when they host Mumbai in a return-leg fixture at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Saturday.
Though Rajasthan are coming into the clash following a 12-run defeat at the hands Punjab, they would take inspiration from their four-wicket win over Mumbai and look to complete a double against Sharma's side.
However, Rajasthan have a poor record at home turf, having lost three out of four matches they have played at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium.
Rahane's side, who are currently languishing down to the second last position in the IPL standings, will head into the clash aiming to bring their campaign back on track with a much-needed win over Mumbai.
Mumbai, on the other hand, are coming on the back of a 40-run win over Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on Thursday.
Sharma's side are now standing at the second position on the point table, with six wins from nine matches.
The three-time former champions will look to take avenge of their home defeat against Rajasthan and inch closer to the playoff berth.
The two sides have faced each other 22 times in the Indian T20 League, with Mumbai emerging out victorious on 11 occasions while Rajasthan registering victory 10 times.
The two teams are as follows:
Rajasthan: Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes, Joffre Archer, Jos Butler, Ashton Turner, Ish Sodhi, Oshane Thomas, Liam Livingstone, Sanju Samson (WK), Shubham Ranjane, Steve Smith (c), Stuart Binny, Shreyas Gopal, Sudhesan Midhun, Jaydev Unadkat, Prashant Chopra, Mahipal Lomror, Aryaman Birla, Riyan Parag, Dhawal Kulkarni, Krishnappa Gowtham, Varun Aaron, Shashank Singh, Manan Vohra, Rahul Tripathi.
Mumbai: Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Jayant Yadav, Rahul Chahar, Ben Cutting, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuvraj Singh, Anmolpreet Singh, Aditya Tare, Siddhedh Lad, Evin Lewis, Pankaj Jaiswal, Anukul Roy, Mayank Markande, Mitchell McClenaghan, Barinder Sran, Rasikh Salam, Ishan Kishan, Jason Behrendorff.
