The good news coming from both franchises is Jofra Archer is all set to play tonight and got a green signal from the elbow specialist whereas Trent Boult who had a minor niggle is also set to play tonight from the Royals.
Riley Meredith from Mumbai Indians is likely to sit out to make way for Jofra Archer while Tilak Varma or Kumar Kartikeya are possible impact player options for MI.
Kuldip Yadav & Devdutt Padikkal would be the impact players pair for Rajasthan Royals depending on bowling or batting first. Kuldip was highly impressive in the last game as he gave away just 18 runs in his three overs and picked a wicket as well.

MI vs RR Match 42 Dream11 Prediction
It is not usual to have three wicket-keepers in our dream11 team but the great thing about all three of them are huge impact players and can change the game in a few overs through their aggressive approach.
Spinners have generally enjoyed bowling at the Wankhede Stadium hence we have picked top-quality spinners like Ashwin, Chawla & Chahal for our fantasy team.
Below is our best possible MI vs RR Match 42 Dream11 team.
Wicket-Keeper – Jos Butler, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan (vc)
Batsmen – Suryakumar Yadav, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Verma
All-rounders – Ravichandran Ashwin, Cameron Green
Bowlers – Piyush Chawla, Yuzvendra Chahal (c), Trent Boult
For this Match 42, we have utilized an aggressive approach while picking our choices for captain and vice-captain. As it is said more the risk more the reward and we had made sure to go in that direction with Ishan Kishan who hasn’t had a very impressive IPL so far is our captain while Chahal is our vice-captain due to the dry nature of the surface available here.

MI vs RR Match 42 Prediction
Rajasthan Royals are the favorites to win this match with betting odds of 1.72 while Mumbai Indians are the underdogs with betting odds of 2.0. Mumbai while playing at home has a good record but their major problem is their bowling looks underpowered this year. The toss can play a vital role tonight and if Rohit Sharma wins the toss and go for the chase then things can get interesting and they can surprise a strong-looking Royals squad.
