Here is our RR Predicted XI vs MI for IPL 2021 match:-
Jos Buttler: The England wicketkeeper-batsman has not managed to give blistering starts to RR this year and would be keen to set things straight against MI. RR will depend on him for a good start.

MI vs RR IPL 2021 live score
Sanju Samson: The RR captain shrug of his poor returns in the IPL with a patient innings against KKR and what would give more joy to them is the fact that he was there till the end to finish off the game.
Shivam Dube: The tall all-rounder played an important innings against KKR and would like to carry on the same on Saturday.
David Miller: The South African left-hander was unbeaten with Sanju Samson to see RR home against KKR. His experience will be key in the RR middle-order.
Riyan Parag: Despite a bundle of talent, Riyan Parag has failed to put together a noteworthy performance in this year’s IPL. The Assam right-hander would look to make amends against MI.
Rahul Tewatia: The attacking left-hander returned to form against RCB but has been below-par with the ball in hand. RR needs his all-round skills to make a comeback in this tournament.
Chris Morris: IPL's most expensive cricketer has so far blown hot and cold. He did play match-winning innings against DC but has not made any notable contribution with the bat yet. With the ball, however, he has been amongst the wickets.
Jaydev Unadkat: The experienced left-armer was brilliant with the new ball against KKR. He is once again expected to trouble the likes of Quinton de Kock and Rohit Sharma.
Chetan Sakariya: The Saurashtra left-arm seamer has been a revelation in this IPL for RR. He is good with the new ball, can bowl the yorker and is a gun fielder.
Mustafizur Rahman: The Fizz had the KKR batsmen in a tangle with his off-cutters, something he is known for. Bangladesh international is expected to play a key role against MI.
RR Predicted XI vs KKR: Jos Buttler, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Sanju Samson (c & wk), Shivam Dube, David Miller, Riyan Parag, Rahul Tewatia, Chris Morris, Jaydev Unadkat, Chetan Sakariya, Mustafizur Rahman
