Rohit Sharma and team will be walking in with a smile after their win against KKR in the last game. The man is known to defend low totals and he did it once again. Though MI batsmen failed, their bowlers bailed them out. Their batsmen need to come out on top in this game as SRH bowling attack is brutal. Pollard hasn’t fired in the past 2 games and he must find his tune before the charade begins in the later half of the tourney. Also, the captain Rohit rolling his arms as a bowler could come as a great relief to the team as they have an extra bowling option now. MI Will look to get 2 more points on board tonight, provided they use enough caution with Rashid Khan.
Possible – 11
Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieran Pollard, Jimmy Neesham, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah.
David Warner will not be in a not so good mood as they have lost both their previous games and will have to win this game to find their rhythm. The team boasts of excellent bowlers in Rashid and Bhuvi, but the big hitting batsmen fail to capitalise this. Also, Kane should be brought into the team to have a stable middle order in the team. Warner, Bairstow and Pandey should also fire from start for SRH to win this game as the MI team has the deadly combo of Boult and Bumrah. Will SRH bounce back to winning ways ?
Possible – 11
David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan
Two teams capable of defending the feeblest runs and also chase Himalayan targets. Rohit takes on Warner in this game of wits. But, who will emerge victorious?
Mumbai Indians might come out on top in this opening clash.
