Yuzvendra Chahal became the first player in the history of the Indian Premier League to take 200 IPL wickets. Chahal achieved a historic record when he dismissed Mumbai Indians' Mohammad Nabi in the seventh over of the RR vs MI match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. But the important question is will Chahal play in the T20 World Cup 2024 for India? 

Chahal is the only bowler since the inception of the league to reach the landmark and despite being one of India's best T20 bowlers, he has continuously missed the bus for T20 World Cup.

For Rajasthan, Sandeep Sharma returned to the playing XI and replaced Kuldeep Sen. While the top-placed Rajasthan Royals (12 points) will look to consolidate their position in the IPL points table, Mumbai Indians will have to bring their ‘A’ game forward given they are placed seventh with six points from seven matches.

In their previous game earlier this season, Rajasthan Royals defeated Mumbai Indians by six wickets in Mumbai.
