Will Rohit Sharma hit the Bull's Eye?

Rohit Sharma's pathetic form is the major point of concern for the Mumbai Indians team.

Even though he has shown glimpses of his magical touch in the last few games, the skipper continuously failed to give his best throughout this IPL season.

The form of Parthiv Patel will be quite crucial for the Mumbai Indians team. He is the leading run-scorer for MI in this IPL edition, and if he succeeds in finding the form in this match too, then things will not be that easy for the Pune Supergiants bowlers.

In the middle order, Mumbai Indians depend on the form of Hardik Pandya and Keiron Pollard.

As Ambati Rayudu too returns to the side, the team can boast about a strong middle order which has the capability to trash even the mightiest bowling party under the sky.

The absence of Mitchell McClenaghan has drastically affected the form of the Mumbai bowling department. If the Kiwi pacer fails to regain his fitness, Mitchell Johnson will once again find his spot in the playing eleven.

Steven Smith and Mahendra Singh Dhoni leading the RPS from the front

Steven Smith, Ben Stokes and Rahul Tripathi are the primary run scorers in the Rising Pune Supergiants side. Even though ex-Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni struggled to find form in the first games, he came back to the rhythm in spanking passion in the last few matches.

He is also giving proper guidance to Steven Smith while taking crucial decisions in the death overs.
