====================================================================================

Over 1 || Score 2/0

Adam Gilchrist and Mandeep Singh to open for Punjab, Nathan Coulter-Nile will bowl the first over for Mumbai. Just two from the first over.

====================================================================================

TOSS: Rohit Sharma has won the toss and he has decided to bowl first.

Big News: Tendulkar isn't playing today.

Punjab have gained the momentum in the latter half of the tournament and their skipper Adam Gilchrist had played some crucial knocks in the last few matches. David Miller has been a key player for the side and the only reason for their poor show in the series has been the form of their bowlers. Their chances of making it to the play-offs are unlikely and they will have to defeat Mumbai Indians in the match to entertain their hopes of making it to the top four.

Mumbai Indians on the other hand have already booked their berth for the play-offs and have looked like a formidable side ever since Rohit Sharma was handed over the captaincy. The spinner and even the pace bowlers have done their job to perfection and Mumbai would want to enter the play-offs on a high note with another comprehensive victory.
