  • SRH get over the line in a last ball finish against MI

Mumbai Indians' campaign got off to a poor start.

Against RCB, Mumbai will be hoping the wheel of fortune to turn their way beginning with the toss. Will MI's captain Rohit brings the aggressiveness and score their first win, or will RCB steps on the gas pedal and continue its winning momentum? They are one of the founding member of IPL and since the beginning of the tournament IPL they used to take part in it and yet to miss any season. While Mumbai will look to back their existing bowlers and adjust their batting order properly as they are not expected to make much changes. From their first game against Chennai Super Kings to the Delhi Daredevils match on the weekend, Mumbai Indians was let down by either one of their departments and hence could only put up an ordinary performance. A result against a strong Royal Challengers Bangalore is a must! We expect a high scoring match and the bowling strategy would depend on the circumstances during the game.

He had a poor match the last time around but it was largely due to the fact that the Delhi Daredevils' batsmen were swinging their bats at everything. Mumbai may try to reinforce their batting by replacing the spinner with all-rounder Jean-Paul Duminy, who can roll his arm over as well. Two wickets off the first two balls of the match! But his ability to cause destruction at the top is enormous.

The suspect is described as a heavier-set African American female, around 5 feet 2 inches tall, in her mid-20s to early-30s. One hour after the robbery, Travis and Bush were arrested on suspicion of robbery and armed criminal action.

Hardik Pandya, MI all-rounder : The flashy all-rounder has not fired as expected (2,22 & 0-32, 2-24) with an ankle injury also hampering his progress. If RCB want to be serious contenders for this year's IPL, they will need to tighten up their bowling. With RCB depending on skipper, Virat Kohli who recently impressed the RCB's fans with exceptional strokes. It is not certain that the same will happen what you had planned.

Both the teams go into this match with a decent batting line up which could steal the game away from their opponents anytime. "That should be the mindset for every team". So, I will have him in my team.

Whoa! It doesn't get bigger than this! But MI would be concerned with the form of their captain Rohit, who has not been able to convert his starts, falling for 15, 11 and 18.
