Mumbai Indians

Considering the likes of Cameron Green and Surya Kumar Yadav are back in form, Mumbai Indians would be backing themselves to win this game.

The home support would also come in handy as they will be playing in front of an exuberant Wankhede crowd.

In the bowling department, Arjun Tendulkar bowled a beautiful final over and defended 20 runs. He had just conceded 5 runs in the final over against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The bowling-allrounder also took his maiden wicket in IPL in the form of Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Jofra Archer continues to be on the side-lines for Mumbai Indians.
