  1. vs scheduled at 8:00 PM IST on 29th April Preview Is it a little too late? This is a question the Gujarat Lions players will ask themselves as they head into the second half of their campaign. By no means Lions are out of the race to make it to the play-offs but they will need at least four more wins in their last six matches to stand a chance. In the three wins that they have registered in eight games so far in IPL 2017, they've shown that things are slowly falling in place for them. The bowling - which was their weak link - has stepped up and now inspires confidence that they can win matches for the team. Their clinical show against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Bengaluru showcased that they have the ability to dismantle even the strongest batting line-up in the tournament. Andrew Tye has emerged as the linchpin of the Lions bowling while Ravindra Jadeja, Basil Thampi and James Faulkner have done well to provide him with ample support. However, when they take on Mumbai Indians, the bowling will be put under pressure yet again. Mumbai have, on several occasions, found different batsmen to carry them through tough situations despite Rohit Sharma's indifferent form. Considering they will be welcomed by a track full of runs, Mumbai will look at this as an opportunity to cement their place at the top of the table with another win. Six wins from eight games have given the much-needed cushion but the think-tank will be keen to carry forward the momentum. As is the case in a tournament like IPL, it's not about racking up wins in the first half of the tournament but sustaining the momentum and making it count at the business end of it. On more than one occasion, it has been the batsmen who have helped the team get over the line but in the clash against Delhi Daredevils, where they defended 142, the bowlers showed they aren't just playing support cast. While Harbhajan Singh, Krunal Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah have been exceptional, Mitchell Johnson has ensured they don't miss Lasith Malinga, who has been out of the playing XI due to poor form. They will, however, look forward to a much-improved show from Mitchell McClenaghan, who has picked up wickets but more often than not, has leaked runs. Lions have some tough games ahead of them. After the game against Mumbai, they play Daredevils twice, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rising Pune Supergiant and Kings XI Punjab but after their win against Royal Challengers, they will believe they can rack up crucial wins and give themselves a chance. Mumbai, on the other hand, will know two more wins and they will have one foot in the play-offs and that should prop up the side. History: The two teams have met thrice in the tournament so far. While Lions won both their clashes in the last edition, Mumbai thrashed Lions by six wickets at home in the tenth edition. What: Gujarat Lions vs Mumbai Indians, April 29, 20:00 IST Where: Saurashtra Cricket Association Ground, Rajkot What to expect: A hot evening expected in Rajkot. The track, as has been the case in all the previous four games here, will be full of runs and the teams will prefer to chase. Team news: Gujarat Lions: The Suresh Raina-led side have finally found the right combination, one where they don't appear batting heavy. After their win against Royal Challengers, it's unlikely they will make any changes to their line-up. Probable XI: Ishan Kishan, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina (c), Aaron Finch, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, James Faulkner, Andrew Tye, Basil Thampi, Nathu Singh, Ankit Soni. Mumbai Indians: After their loss against Rising Pune Supergiant, Mumbai have had four days off, giving them ample time to rejuvenate. Despite the loss, it's highly unlikely there will be too many changes to the combination that has propelled them to the top of the table. Krunal Pandya should come in in place of Karn Sharma. Probable XI: Parthiv Patel (wk), Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Rohit Sharma (c), Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mitchell Johnson, Jasprit Bumrah. What they said: "It was a very good performance from the team tonight (against RCB). We've put ourselves in this position by being poor in a couple of games. We're still very confident, though. We have a good side, but time will tell." - Aaron Finch. Did you know? - Rohit Sharma needs 14 more runs to become the third player to score 4000 runs in IPL after Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina - Among those who have bowled at least 15 overs in IPL 2017, Krunal Pandya has the best balls-per-boundary percentage among bowlers - 11.50 - Harbhajan Singh is the only bowler this IPL to concede at less than six runs per over - 5.88 (min 15 overs) Teams: Mumbai Indians (From): Parthiv Patel(w), Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Rohit Sharma(c), Karn Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mitchell Johnson, Jasprit Bumrah, Lasith Malinga, Shreyas Gopal, Lendl Simmons, Vinay Kumar, Siddhesh Lad, Jagadeesha Suchith, Tim Southee, Jitesh Sharma, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Punia, Saurabh Tiwary, Nicholas Pooran, Krishnappa Gowtham, Kulwant Khejroliya, Ambati Rayudu, Asela Gunaratne Gujarat Lions (From): Ishan Kishan, Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina(c), Aaron Finch, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik(w), James Faulkner, Andrew Tye, Nathu Singh, Basil Thampi, Ankit Soni, Dwayne Smith, Dhawal Kulkarni, Praveen Kumar, Pradeep Sangwan, Shadab Bashir Jakati, Jaydev Shah, Manpreet Gony, Jason Roy, Munaf Patel, Chirag Suri, Akshdeep Nath, Shubham Agarwal, Tejas Baroka, Pratham Singh, Shelley Shaurya, Irfan Pathan Source : Cricbuzz
  2. On a roll after a six-game winning streak, high-flying Mumbai Indians (MI) will take on a resurgent Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS), their only conquerors in IPL season 10, in a potentially high-voltage clash here today Squads Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (captain), Jasprit Bumrah, Jos Buttler, Shreyas Gopal, Krishnappa Gowtham, Asela Gunaratne, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Johnson, Kulwant Khejroliya, Siddhesh Lad, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Parthiv Patel (wicketkeeper), Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Punia, Nitish Rana, Ambati Rayudu, Jitesh Sharma, Karn Sharma, Lendl Simmons, Tim Southee, Jagadeesha Suchith, Saurabh Tiwary, R Vinay Kumar.

  3. vs Scheduled to start at 20:00 IST Preview: Mumbai Indians walk into their seventh game of IPL 2017, against Delhi Daredevils, in red-hot form. The Rohit Sharma-led side suffered a false start when they lost to Rising Pune SuperGiant in Pune, but since then, the side has looked like a different team altogether. They've been involved in a top of the table battle with Kolkata Knight Riders and will look to consolidate that position with a thumping performance against a Delhi Daredevils squad that has been blowing hot and cold thus far. Mumbai's solid start to the tournament has been highlighted by the performances from their lesser-known Indian players. While captain Rohit Sharma's form has been indifferent, the likes of Nitish Rana, Krunal Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, Parthiv Patel and Hardik Pandya have been on good consistent runs so far. In addition to this, their foreign players (Kieron Pollard, Jos Buttler and Mitchell McCleneghan) have come up with match-winning performances when the team really needed them. Delhi Daredevils started the campaign with much promise. They won two out of their first three, but could easily have won their first four with a little more application. Gradually, however, their problems have started to come exposed. The inclusion of Angelo Mathews has proved to be a big gamble that has not worked for Zaheer Khan's side. The form of Karun Nair, too, has been an issue, with the right-hander not scoring big batting at number three. However, they have had some great performances to place their hopes on a good showing, none more than Sanju Samson's stunning hundred against RPS. Delhi will hope that they can put an end to their two-match losing streak and settle in the top half of the table. When: Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils, 25th Match, April 22, 20:00 IST Where: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai Weather: The temperatures should hover in the high twenties in the evening, but humidity is expected to be quite high. Head-to-Head: Both teams have faced each other 18 times, and are tied at nine wins each. Team News: Mumbai Indians: Having won their last five games, Mumbai Indians will think twice about tweaking their winning combination. One possibility could be to leave out the out-of-form Lasith Malinga for Tim Southee. Delhi Daredevils: Unlike the hosts, Delhi will have to ponder a number of changes. Angelo Mathews's lack of impact could mean a return for Corey Anderson, named Man of the Match in his last game. If Anderson is still not fit, Carlos Brathwaite could also get a look in. They could also look at bringing in Shahbaz Nadeem for Jayant Yadav. Did you know? - MI are the best team in the death overs (16-20) with a run rate of 12.27 while DD have been the best with the ball in the same stage conceding just at 7.71 per over. - Rohit Sharma has scored 655 runs against DD from 19 matches at 40.93 - the most runs scored against them by a player. - Lasith Malinga is the leading wicket taker against DD in IPL with 19 wickets and he has never been wicketless against them. - DD have lost five out of the six matches they've played at the Wankhede, with their lone win coming in 2011. Teams: Delhi Daredevils (From): Sanju Samson, Sam Billings, Karun Nair, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Angelo Mathews, Chris Morris, Pat Cummins, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Zaheer Khan(c), Corey Anderson, Kagiso Rabada, Ankit Bawne, Aditya Tare, Murugan Ashwin, Navdeep Saini, Shashank Singh, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jayant Yadav, Carlos Brathwaite, Chama Milind, Khaleel Ahmed, Pratyush Singh, Ben Hilfenhaus Mumbai Indians (From): Parthiv Patel(w), Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Hardik Pandya, Rohit Sharma(c), Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah, Ambati Rayudu, Shreyas Gopal, Lendl Simmons, Vinay Kumar, Siddhesh Lad, Jagadeesha Suchith, Tim Southee, Jitesh Sharma, Deepak Punia, Saurabh Tiwary, Nicholas Pooran, Mitchell Johnson, Karn Sharma, Asela Gunaratne, Krishnappa Gowtham, Kulwant Khejroliya Source: Cricbuzz
  4. Mumbai Indian vs SunRisers Hyderabad Match scheduled to begin at 20:00 local time (14:30 GMT) vs VS Preview Having overcome the Chris Lynn threat and an in-form Kolkata Knight Riders, the challenge only gets bigger for Mumbai Indians as they will be up against the Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday (April 12). Sunrisers are one of only two teams that is yet to taste defeat in IPL 2017. The defending champions have carried on from where they left off in the summit clash in 2016, starting in clinical fashion. Mumbai Indians will be keen to use their home advantage and try to emulate what Sunrisers have done so far, which wouldn't be such a simple task as they will face a quality side that is further boosted by the return of Mustafizur Rahman - their hero from last season.Mumbai Indians' two innings with the bat so far have been pretty similar - a good start, followed by a heap of wickets and then Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya coming to the team's rescue. Buttler, who has looked in ominous form, hasn't been able to make a sizeable contribution yet and has been at the wrong end of two bad umpiring decisions. He will be eager to make a big impact at the top, as would Rohit, who is yet to hit the straps, with poor umpiring denying him that opportunity in the last match. The likes of Parthiv Patel, Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya have flattered to deceive, and MI will be hoping that they come good soon.Another concern for Mumbai is that their pacers haven't been a major influence so far, and the cascading effect of that is runs being leaked both at the start and the death. Mitchell McClenaghan has been a shadow of his previous season's version - an economy rate of 10.87 is testimony to that. However, the Mumbai think-tank may not be hasty in taking a decision on the New Zealand left-arm seamer, who has played pivotal roles in the past. Meanwhile, MI will be pleased with the performance of the spinners in their last game and will hope that Krunal and Harbhajan Singh can continue in the same vein.Going by their performances so far, Sunrisers Hyderabad look a thoroughly professional unit whose single-minded focus is clinching a second title in as many years. The contributions have been evenly spread, which is a very good sign and speaks about the efficiency of the team. However, the immediate trial for SRH is to keep the show going in away matches as well, with the game against Mumbai being followed by a game in Kolkata.The middle-order concerns of last year seem to have vanished this season. The likes of Moises Henriques, Yuvraj Singh and Deepak Hooda have all been among the runs while both David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have been playing their usual roles at the top. Among the bowlers, Afghanistan's 18-year-old Rashid Khan has been grabbing all the headlines with his excellent performances, while the wily Bhuvneshwar Kumar has played his part despite flying under the radar. Ben Cutting, though, hasn't been as effective with the ball and he's likely to be the one to make way for Mustafizur. That change, however, would result in a slightly shorter batting order, but Warner and the team management will count on the top-order batsmen to negate it.History: Sunrisers have lost both their matches they've played at Wankhede. The overall head-to-head record between the two teams is even-stevens at 4-4, with two of those wins for Sunrisers coming last year.When: Wednesday, April 12 at 8:00 PM ISTWhere: Wankhede Stadium, MumbaiWhat to expect: The pitch is expected to be a batting paradise, as has been the norm in T20 matches at the Wankhede. A high of 33 degree Celsius is anticipated. Dew could play a big factor and chasing is usually the preferred option at this venue.Team News:Mumbai Indians: The hosts may not look at making any change, although McClenaghan's form is a worry. Should they decide to leave him out, Mitchell Johnson is a readily available option, as his pace and accuracy while bowling in the nets would not have gone unnoticed.Sunrisers Hyderabad: The return of Mustafizur means that SRH will have a change to their eleven for the first time in this edition of the IPL. The Bangladesh left-arm seamer is likely to be slotted in place of Cutting.What they said:"The batsmen have got to hit him first, don't they? For the size of the ground to come into contention. He, like any spinner, is going to be challenged on smaller grounds. But traditionally the surface here offers something for spin bowling. So he'll relish the conditions out in the middle." - Tom Moody feels Rashid Khan will be up for the challenge despite the short boundaries at Wankhede."It's just the start of the season. He hasn't played so much of cricket but I think he's bowling well in the nets. There's no concern (with his form). At the end of the day it's (only) the result that will matter" - Parthiv Patel isn't concerned about McClenaghan's two expensive outings.Did you know:- Sunrisers have lost both their matches at the Wankhede. The chasing sides have won all the five matches at the Wankh since IPL 2016.- Kieron Pollard needs 33 runs more to become the fifth batsman to score 7000 runs in T20s.- Bhuvaneshwar Kumar has taken 11 wickets against Mumbai in 10 matches at an economy rate of 5.48.- Rohit Sharma has scored only 98 runs in eight innings against Sunrisers. His scores against them read 22, 20*, 1, 14*, 24, 7*, 5 and 5.
