After losing five consecutive matches in the UAE leg of the Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians have given their fans something to cheer about by winning their next two games at the Wankhede stadium. Rohit Sharma played a captain`s knock in the previous match and the team management would want him to continue his good show.

Kieron Pollard and Harbhajan Singh are two players who are slowly getting back in their groove. While Pollard has managed to play some good knocks in the last few matches, Bhajji has shown glimpses of his past by flummoxing the best batsmen in the business. While Praveen Kumar replaces injured Zaheer Khan, skipper Rohit Sharma would want him to make a good comeback.

On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings would be disappointed after losing their second match of this season against Kings XI Punjab – a team which has won the hearts all over with their all-round show. The CSK bowlers leaked plenty of runs in that game and once Dwayne Smith was dismissed early, they never looked like chasing down the total.

Despite losing to KXIP twice this series, CSK have been outstanding against all the teams this season. While Mumbai would want to increase their winning streak to three, CSK would want to defeat the defending champions on their own backyard.
