Mumbai Indians: Parthiv Patel and Jos Butler

Jos Buttler to open the batting and the Somerset-born right-hander repaid the faith his team had in him by scoring a 19-ball 38 with the help of three fours and three sixes. While Parthiv Patel has been in fine form and is likely to open the batting for Mumbai Indians against the Knight Riders.

Gujarat Lions: Dwayne Smith and Brendon McCullum

Gujarat’s batting line-up boasts of some of the big name players, who are capable of winning the match on their own are Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith. The rakish opener with the company of an equally explosive Brendon McCullum, can turn the heat on the opposition in the first few overs.


  • Its difficult for us as per the previous records and astrologically Gujrat lions will win the match.
  • But on team basis according to us Mumbai Indians will win because they are the stable team as they have massive batting line up and bowling squad.
  • Match is in Mumbai so they have massive support and some how its very tuff to beat Mumbai indians in their home ground.
