Gujarat Lions have brought young allrounder Ankit Soni in place of chinaman Shivil Kaushik who has not been able to create much of an impact this season of the IPL. James Faulkner did a good job with the ball against RCB and he is likely to retain his place ahead of Dwayne Smith.
The big runs are expected to come off the bats of Suresh Raina, Brendon McCullum and Dinesh Karthik, all three of whom have had good hits this IPL. The skipper is averaging 62 and he regained the orange cap in the last game against RCB. McCullum has a score of 64 in the reverse fixture and Aaron Finch too has returned to form. When it comes to bowling, the spotlight is going to be on none other than Andrew Tye who nearly took his second hat-trick of the season the other night. The Australian paceman has now taken 12 wickets from 5 matches and the Lions will want him to be at his best against the Mumbai Indians.
Gujarat Lions have managed to escape from the bottom of the points table after thrashing Royal Challengers Bangalore by seven wickets in their previous game. With two wins in their last three games, they have now moved up to the sixth place with six points.
Rohit Sharma returned to form and he nearly took his team over the line with a valuable fifty in the last game against RPS. Nitish Rana has been consistent this season with three fifties under his belt and one can expect another good knock from him in this match. Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah are the players to watch out for with the ball. The Kiwi fast bowler is among the leading wicket-takers of the season with 12 wickets while the local boy has been quite accurate with his lines and lengths.
As always, Mumbai Indians are playing quality cricket and are currently second on the IPL leaderboard with six wins and two losses from eight league matches. However, their six match winning streak was snapped by the Rising Pune Supergiant in the last game. It has been an allround performance from them so far with batsmen and bowlers backing each other up.
Gujarat Lions won the toss and elected to bat.
