Mumbai has won just one match in six matches, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK has won five out of six matches. However, the CSK had to withdraw from their original home ground, but it did not affect them because they won their first match in Pune.

Mumbai has failed to perform as a unit in terms of bowling. However, 20-year-old leg spinner Mayank Markande is a great search for Mumbai. He has taken 10 wickets in six games. Jaspreet Bumrah and Mustafizur Rahman have not been able to live up to expectations. Mumbai team can replace New Zealand fast bowler Adam Milne in place of compatriot Mitchell McClenaghan.

On the other hand, CSK would be confident of the previous win, in which Dhoni played a magnificent inning and achieved a huge target of 206 against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Apart from Suresh Raina, other leading batsmen, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Dwayne Bravo and Dhoni are in good form. The CSK bowling has been good under the leadership of Shardul Thakur, in which Imran Tahir and Deepak Chahar have also collaborated.

MI Probable XI: Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan (WK), Rohit Sharma (C), Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Mitchell McClenaghan, Mayank Markande, Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahman/Adam Milne
