Rohit Sharma Won the toss and chose to field first.
The Mumbai Indians will be feeling confident after opening their account in their previous match. MI have a history of starting slowly and then catching up; this season, they lost their first three matches, before they earned their first points in the home match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. MI, who return to the park after a four-day break, will be keen to continue doing what they have done so far – but only consistently improve the one percenters, which has cost them three potential wins.
RR have to address problems with their balance and their bowling attack; they have fielded at least five potential openers in their XI, with three of them having to adapt to roles they may not be so used to
