Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Date & Time: April 27th, 7:30 PM

Wankhede Stadium has been a high scoring wicket in the last few games and the short boundaries have allowed the batters to take on the bowlers tactically. The captain that wins the toss is likely to stick with the option of bowling first as the dew factor will be one of the headaches for the skipper.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the Match: Hardik Pandya
Hardik Pandya has been outstanding so far in the tournament and he played another match-winning innings with the bat in the previous game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The right-hander has accumulated 295 runs in six games already in the season and has led the side from the front by taking up the responsibility of batting up the order. He is likely to play as a pure batter in the upcoming fixture as fitness seems to be an issue whenever he starts bowling.
Probable best bowler of the Match: Lockie Ferguson
Lockie Ferguson bowled a good spell in the previous game giving away just 33 runs in his four overs and picked up one wicket as well. The right-arm quick has been clocking high speeds continuously and his slower ones have become a lot more effective with his pace rising up. Ferguson has the ability to pick up wickets whenever the captain needs him to and he will be looking to continue his impressive form.
