Mumbai Indians Vs Rising Pune Supergiants Match No 28 in IPL 2017
Question in detail
Mumbai Indians Vs Rising Pune Supergiants, match No. 28: While Pune is coming off a win, Mumbai will go into their 8th game on the back of six consecutive wins. The only loss Mumbai suffered came against Pune in their tournament's opener. Unbeaten since six matches, Mumbai is flaunting their best ever IPL start this season. Mumbai Indians have been dominant throughout; they haven't just won the one-sided affairs but also have crawled out well of the daunting situations. So, the 10th IPL season has been in stark contrast to their earlier ones. If Mumbai becomes the winner of RPS Vs RPS match as well following a couple of victories in the further next ones, they will almost qualify for the playoff round.
Pune will be relieved with MS Dhoni bringing solidity in the middle and also sparkling as the finisher that he is widely known to be. In the last match against Hyderabad, Dhoni's stellar half-century powered RPS to their third win of the tournament. Dhoni came back in form when it mattered a lot for him as well as for the team. Unbeaten 34-balls 61 that also include Dhoni's typical last-ball finish got RPS the much-coveted win.
Though MS Dhoni is back to form, RPS still have some issues to be concerned. Ben Stokes, the highest-paid player of this IPL season, has been off the hook both with bat and ball. Barring one half-century, Stokes hasn't quite clicked in the tournament to the best of his potential. RPS' trouble doesn't just end here. Top-order failure and constantly ineffective bowling go even more nagging for the struggling Pune. To become the winner of RPS Vs RPS match, Pune will require their key batsmen to come promising like Dhoni and Tripathi did in the last game against Hyderabad.
Mumbai Indians looks impossible to be subdued given the way they have been playing in the tournament. Despite being off colored, Pune will try to end MI's winning streak in Mumbai Indians Vs Rising Pune Supergiants match at Wankhede Stadium. Barring Rohit Sharma, the captain, almost all Mumbai batsmen are leveraging on their form to help their team emerge victorious. Not just that, even their bowlers are doing wonder to decimate the opponents' batting line-up. Let's see if they continue their winning streak.
Will Rising Pune Supergiants break off Mumbai Indians' winning streak at Wankhede Stadium?
