Team News:

Mumbai Indians: Mumbai wants to play the same line-up even after losing as many as five out of six games this season. The management has shown faith in a set of players and expects them to fire at some point in time.

The kind of cricket they have played is not portrayed properly by their position in the points table as all the matches they have lost were last over thrillers.

They are likely to be unchanged, but Keiron Pollard's form can be a concern, and they might well have to drop him to get JP Duminy or Been Cutting off the bench.

Chennai Super Kings: This year's IPL has been a fairytale journey for them so far. In every match, we saw somebody stepping up and doing the job. In the last game as well it was MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu who ensured CSK conquer Bangalore.

They might be going in with the same team for tonight's game.

Pitch: Pune's pitch has always given us some good cricket matches to witness, and if these two teams bat well, we might have a cracker of a game. There might be slight bounce and swing early on, but later run scoring will be easy. There might be some dew in later part of the match which will make difficult for the spinners of control the ball.


There are no chances of rain today in Pune. It is expected to be a hot and humid day. So it is safe to assume that we will have a cracker of a game this evening too.
