Mumbai Indians look to preserve dominance | PunterPolls Prediction
Sitting comfortably at the top of the table, Mumbai Indians have done enough to cement their place in the playoffs. In their last match of the league round against Kings XI Punjab, they would want to carry their winning momentum before meeting Chennai Super Kings in the first qualifier.
As formidable as they appear, their opponents would have made note of how the Mumbai batsmen managed just 34 runs in the last five overs against Royals. Prior to that match, against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai's batting was struggling until Kieron Pollard came in and thwarted Sunrisers with a blistering innings.
Sachin Tendulkar, who missed the previous game, has been declared fit* but could still sit out the game. "The games are coming thick and fast and it has been just three days since he sprained his wrist," Anil Kumble, the Mumbai Indians mentor, said. "Though he has recovered, he will probably give the match here a miss." Local boy Rishi Dhawan might also find a place in the side.
Sunrisers' victory over Rajasthan Royals put Kings XI out of the reckoning for the playoffs spot. With their tournament drawing to a close, Kings XI would like to register one last win and beating a high-profile team like Mumbai would certainly please their fans.
