Pitch & Weather Report

The Wankhede pitch has hosted 112 matches in the Indian Premier League to date. The teams batting first and second have nearly equal chances of winning the game. The pitch is very good for batting due to the nature of the wicket and small boundaries. Pacers do get some early swing but the batters mostly dominate the games in Mumbai. Chasing might be the best option considering the dew factor.

The temperature will be around 30 degrees Celsius. However, there will be humidity of about 50 percent which will bring dew into play and there is no chance of rain.

Mumbai Indians:

MI are expected to play with the same eleven they used in the game against Bangalore. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan are set to open the inning with the bat and they are in sensational form. Suryakumar Yadav scored a 17-ball hundred in his second game of the season. So, he will be looking to continue his great start to the season. Hardik Pandya hasn't delivered this season and he needs to work on himself. Tim David and Romario Shepherd have done a perfect job batting down the order and Mumbai will be happier if they can do the same against RR. 

Gerald Coetzee hasn't been consistent this season which is a huge worrying sign. Jasprit Bumrah, who is at the peak of his career, will be leading the pace attack against RR. Piyush Chawla is the weak link in Mumbai's bowling setup and that's why they played Nabi alongside him. Nabi's inclusion did not go as per the plan, but the experienced campaigner surely can cause some damage with bat and ball.

Chennai Super Kings:

Rachin Ravindra hasn't scored runs after scoring in the first two matches which is a worrying sign for the team. Ruturaj scored a half-century in the last match but took too many deliveries to complete that and he needs to improve his strike rate. Shivam Dube has scored runs consistently for the team and is expected to improve CSK's run rate in the middle overs. Ajinkya Rahane has also scored runs here and there but Daryl Mitchell hasn't shown his true self yet. He needs to improve as CSK needs someone besides Dube whom they can rely on.

Jadeja bowled a sensational spell against KKR

Ravindra Jadeja has either scored runs or contributed to the team by scalping wickets. He has always been an important asset for the team and he will be an important player in the game against Mumbai. Shardul Thakur replaced struggling Deepak Chahar in the last game but couldn't produce anything better than him. But, Tushar Deshpande and Mustafizur Rahman have been so far so good for the team and they will be leading the pace attack on Sunday against Mumbai. Jadeja and Theekshana will take care of the middle overs. Rachin Ravindra will be there to bowl 2-3 overs if any of the regular bowlers prove to be expensive.
