After a month-long battle between 8 teams it finally boils down to the last four. Today Mumbai Indians host Rising Pune Supergiant in qualifier 1. It is in a way the western derby. Let us also remind you that RPS are the only team that has defeated MI twice this season. So, it is understandable that RPS is upbeat. But they will be missing the services of Ben Stokes which will be a chest blow for them as he has been in good form. Rumours also have it that Usman Khawaja may get a game finally. For MI, they will resort back to their original line up in all probability where Bumrah, Malinga return.
Mumbai Indians on one hand have hit the most number of sixes in the tournament as a team whereas their opponents Risng Pune Supergiant have been a team with the best death over bowling.
