The opening pair of Parthiv Patel and Jos Buttler are expected to open the innings again while Nitish Rana is expected to come at number 3. Then we have the likes of Rohit Sharma and Pandya brothers in MI’s long batting list. No doubt, MI are equally fatal with the ball too. They have Bumrah, Malinga and McClenaghan in their bowling armoury apart from ace off-spinner Harbhajan Singh in the playing XI.

Steven Smith-led RPS are slowly but surely returning back to form. The good news is the Dhoni’s regaining of lost rhythm. During the last match against DD, Dhoni smashed 61* off 34 balls to help Pune win that match.

However, this time RPS Vs MI match is co-incidentally clashing with the 44th birthday of MI’s mentor Sachin Tendulkar, so Mumbai will definitely looking forward to seal the match with a win and present a birthday gift to master blaster in front of the home crowd.

In bowling department, Shardul Thakur, Dan Christian and Jaydev Unadkat need to bowl well to restrict MI’s run-riot in Mumbai.
