It is a big game for two reasons- Mahendra Singh Dhoni will feature in the Rising Pune Supergiant team a a non-captain and of course it is time for the clash of the west, the Maharashtrian derby. So, who will win, we at inUth.com will tell you why Mumbai Indians are more solid and will emerge victorious in the second match of the Indian Premier League 10.
5 reasons why Mumbai Indians will win:
Death over specialists: Lasith Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah are in the MI mix. Probably the best in the world when it comes to death over bowling. This will play a massive factor in favour of Mumbai Indians throughout the league.
Hitman Returns: Rohit Sharma will be leading Mumbai Indians a franchisee that has had heavyweights like Sachin Tendulkar and Sanath Jayasuriya in the past.
Jayawardena at helm: Mahela Jayawardena is the head coach of the western franchisee and he will come in with a lot of experience and will surely help players like Kieron Pollard reinvent themselves.
Pollard factor: Kieron Pollard may not have been in the best of touch but with a player like him you never know with a player like him. If he gets going he can destroy any side in a matter of overs. He also addds value in the field and with the bat.
12th man: Mumbai Indians have been one team over the nine editions of IPL who have enjoyed a massive fan base. Wherever they travel, there is a lot of crowds cheering for them in a vociferous manner. That will help for certain.
