Mumbai Indians vs Rising Pune Supergiant

Our worst performance of the season says Rohit Sharma

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. With RPS largely dependent on their batting, Bumrah will be a key player to strengthen MI's case. The Ben Stokes need to go back to his home to prepare for the ODI series between South Africa and also the ICC Champions Trophy. So, the RPS need to find the flawless replacement on upcoming matches.

It is hard for the RPS to bring any new player at this end of series for finals. One expects the RPS management will give themselves additional ammunition in the bowling and add Lockie Ferguson in the XI. 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.
