MI Indians doing it comfortably. Pollard's strength again proving crucial at the end. Sanjay Manjrekar may have pulled off the greatest reverse jinx in commentary history with his comments on Pollard. Rohit Sharma would have enjoyed some time in the middle. His form was the only worry for MI and they now look even more dangerous with their captain getting back his touch. This team is full of match winners now and is high on confidence. They will take some beating if they continue like this. GL will have to contend with the bowlers they have but they can lift themselves up if they field better. Unfortunately, Raina has a few too many men to hide in the field and that brings down the whole unit despite the presence of some brilliant fielders in their team.

Mumbai Indians 177/4 after 19.3 overs (Rohit Sharma 40, Hardik Pandya 6) 


Praveen bowls the last over. The first ball is full on the leg side and Rohit paddles it to the boundary. The great start for MI. Two runs off the next ball. Rohit and Hardik take on Jadeja's throw. A direct hit. This would be touch and go. The umpires go upstairs, but Hardik is just in. Good cricket by the three Team India players. A yorker outside off and Rohit squeezes it to cover and take two. That brings up the victory for Mumbai - their fourth of the tournament on the trot. Mumbai win by 6 wickets with three balls to spare.

Gujarat have somewhat redeemed themselves after a comprehensive seven-wicket win over Rising Pune Supergiant while Mumbai have six points from four games shedding their poor starters tag.

One area where MI will like to focus on is their top- order collapse against RCB. Leg-spinner Samuel Badree took a hat-trick but it was one of Kieron Pollard's best run-chases that sealed it for the Mumbai outfit.

Another area of concern would be skipper Rohit Sharma's inability to read the googly. Thrice he has played for the leg-break and was deceived by the wrong 'un bowled by Imran Tahir, Rashid Khan and Badree.

With three sub-10 scores, Rohit would like to fire against the Gujarat Lions especially on the Wankhede track, which is usually considered friendly for batsmen.

One of the biggest positives for Mumbai has been the form of Pandya brothers — Hardik and Krunal. They have made significant all-round contribution in all the matches. Krunal impressed with his unbeaten innings of 37 off 30 balls in a pressure situation in the game against RCB after his 37 off 20 balls against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

This apart, his restrictive left-arm spin has also helped the team in the middle overs.

The win showed Mumbai's ability to bounce back into the game from any stage but the team will like to dominate their opponents tomorrow in all departments.

Harbhajan Singh has been fantastic in the Powerplay overs and if Lasith Malinga comes back after a match's break.

If Malinga plays tomorrow, he would most likely replace Kiwi pacer Tim Southee, who leaked runs in the game in Bangalore.

Another notable aspect will be lack of dew which becomes a factor during evening matches.

For Gujarat Lions, they would like to start with opening pair of Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith, both having regained form.

Also skipper Suresh Raina got some runs under his belt so as Aaron Finch, and this will boost their chances. All the four batsman back in form would make any bowling attack in the world worry so of Mumbai's. Even their bowling attack which was hammered so far got a new lease of life with Australian pacer Andrew Tye.

Tye, who snapped up the second hattrick of this season, would need support from others specially Praveen Kumar who was list less in the game against RPS. Ravindra Jadeja and Shadab Jakati's role is crucial for them if they have to restrict Mumbai line up.

A definite entertainment for the crowd is on the cards as the hosts would like to continue their love affair with Wankhede and retain the top spot.
