The Mumbai Indians have had a poor 2014 campaign, but they might have gotten things back on track with victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore by 19 runs last time out.

Mumbai batted first and made a superb 187-5 from their 20 overs, thanks in large part to an unbeaten 59 from captain Rohit Sharma and 43 from Kieron Pollard.

In reply, Bangalore were looking likely for victory but were reined in over the last few overs to finish on 168-8, with Jasprit Bumrah, Harbhajan Singh and Lasith Malinga taking two wickets apiece for the Indians.

Meanwhile, Chennai were defeated for just the second time in 2014, as they went down to Kings XI Punjab by 44 runs in Cuttack.

Punjab batted first and made a staggering 231-4 from their 20 overs, dominated once again by Glenn Maxwell as the Chennai bowlers struggled for any impact.

In reply, the Super Kings gave it a good go, with Faf du Plessis scoring a scintillating 52 from 25 deliveries, but they fell short and finished on 187-6 in their innings.

With these two at opposite ends of the table and having had an unexpected result last time out, this could be a fascinating encounter.

Key Players

Rohit Sharma

Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma remains crucial for his team, both for his leadership and his batting.

If he can continue his good form from his last appearance, the Indians will be in good shape.


Faf du Plessis

One of Chennai’s leading foreign players, Faf du Plessis has the potential to be incredibly explosive in Twenty20 cricket.

The South African is very aggressive with the bat in his hand, and can turn the game seemingly in an instant.
