Mumbai Indians vs Rising Pune Supergiant

MI vs RPS live audience poll

The playoff matches in the IPL are starting today with the Mumbai Indians taking on the Rising Pune Supergiant in the first qualifier in Mumbai today. The team to lose the match will play Qualifier 2 with the winning team of Eliminator. Mumbai Indians put up all-round performances and maintained their lead in the IPL 10 points table throughout the tournament.

Because he won the man of the match award on his last chance, but he didn't any further chances to play more matches. Some of the predictors recommended the name of Australian batsman, Usman Khawaja. RPS will be without two of their key performers as they head to the playoffs; the all-rounder Ben Stokes and Imran Tahir have parted ways with the team to join up with their respective national teams.

Rohit Sharma had a woeful first half of the season, but has discovered form at the right time; the MI skipper had an aggregate of 54 runs in the first seven matches (six innings), but has scored 228 runs in the latter half. MI then won four of their remaining seven matches to finish on top of the standings.
