Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga is expected to make a comeback after recovering from a knee injury in Mumbai Indian's IPL match against Gujarat Lions on April 16, 2017, at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. If the coach selects Malinga in the playing eleven, then New Zealand fast bowler Tim Southee who was kind of expensive throughout this year's IPL campaign will be compelled to sit on the bench.

In another game of today's double-header, The Royal Challengers Bangalore will take on the Rising Pune Giants at 8 pm. The live updates of this game can be followed on Blasting News here.

Team News

Matthew McClenaghan leads the bowling department of the Mumbai Indians team. Unfortunately, he holds the most expensive economy rate among bowlers in this year's IPL. In their previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, he showed glimpses of form, as he picked two wickets, including the crucial wicket of Virat Kohli by conceding just 20 runs.

On the other hand, the major point of concern in the Gujarat Lions dressing room is the absence of Dwayne Bravo. The Caribbean all-rounder has proved his mettle as a match-winner over the years, and his absence due to a hamstring injury will negatively impact the winning chances of Lions for sure. The batting department of the Gujarat Lions is well settled with big names like Brendon McCullum, Suresh Raina, Smith, and Finch in the top slots.
