Mumbai lifted themselves up the ladder with a timely win over Bangalore at this venue but need at least two victories to be comfortable.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians are 3rd with 12 points from 11 matches. They are coming off a six-wicket win over Bangalore making it three wins from their last four matches.

The hosts have won their last two matches here and are enjoying home comforts. The resurgence of Suryakumar Yadav (376 runs) is a massive lift for the side, who have enjoyed Piyush Chawla’s (17 wickets) bowling exploits.

Rohit Sharma’s poor form remains their only problem as Mumbai are picking up wins at the right time.
