Mumbai Indians can’t afford to relax only after the win over Kings XI Punjab the other day and they will have to keep their heads high. A loss at any stage would lead to their elimination from the tournament. They played with decent plans in place against Punjab in Indore which worked in their favor. It is important for Rohit Sharma and his men to not drop their intensities as all the teams are looking to seal their place in the playoffs with the league reaching its business end. The journey is not at all easy for Mumbai ahead as they face Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium in their next encounter.

The hosts have to concentrate on their game and make sure they don’t give away the home advantage. A win in this game will surely give them the momentum and the belief of qualifying for the playoffs.
Best economical pick – Krunal Pandya has come back in from which is a huge news for the Men in Blue. The way he smashed the ball out of the park must have given a lot of confidence to the change room who can think of promoting him up the order now as well. His bowling has always been superb as his role will be crucial going ahead.
Top captains & vice captains – Sunil Narine is a big impact player. He scored 27 with the bat against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. He backed it up with another quick 32 runs to his name in the game against the Super Kings. Also, in the match against the Chennai Super Kings, Narine came up with brilliant bowling spell. He returned with figures of 2/20 in the match. Suryakumar Yadav has been the standout performer for the defending champions hands down. He is fourth in the list of highest run-getters with 340 runs at an average of over 37 and the strike-rate close to 130 which is perfect for an opener. He has managed to steady ship for worst positions and would love to finish games now by playing patiently in the middle overs.
Smart pick – Rohit Sharma is coming off age it seems and has looked more confident as the tournament has progressed. His batting looked sublime last night and it was his presence in the middle which worked wonders for Mumbai and eventually they were able to seal the deal.
Cautious Pick – Evin Lewis has been out of touch in last few matches and the lack of overseas players in the line-up is hurting Mumbai. It is a known fact that he can win matches single-handedly on his day. Mujeeb Zadran got better of him in the last game which put pressure on his partner.
My XI – Sunil Narine (Captain), Suryakumar Yadav (Vice-Captain), Krunal Pandya, Rohit Sharma, Chris Lynn, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Dinesh Karthik, Andre Russell, Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill
