MUM vs PUN on May 16

 

Mumbai Indians finished their league engagements on top with 20 points while Rising Pune Super Giants placed at 2nd position with 18 points to their name after the league stage. But going into tomorrow's game, Rising Pune Super Giants have psychological advantage over the Mumbai Indians having beaten them on both the occasions during the league stage. Rising Pune Super Giants would look to assert their supremacy while Mumbai Indians will have revenge on mind when the two teams clash in the Indian Premier League 2017 Qualifier. A win tomorrow will guarantee one side a place in the final while the losing team will have another shot at entering the title clash in the Qualifier 2 on May 19.

·         Best economical pick – Rising Pune Super Giant's turnaround in this tournament was made possible by the young opener Rahul Tripathi, who is the second leading run scorer for RPSG with 388 runs from 12 games with an amazing strike rate of 150.97 and an average of 32.33. Tripathi is available at a cheap budget of just 7.5 so grab him in your fantasy team as soon as possible.

·         Top captains & vice captains – Steve Smith replaced MS Dhoni as skipper and lifted Rising Pune Super Giants team from 7th in 2016 to second this year. Steve Smith has so far amassed 420 runs in the ongoing IPL with 2 fifties at a staggering average of 42.00 and an impressive strike rate of 125.37. Smith has also been an impressive captain and infused confidence in the team after a disappointing start. Mumbai Indians have had a history of producing young Indian talents and this time, it was Nitish Rana who caught the eyes of everyone. Batting at number 3, he controlled the chases superbly and scripted a number of victories. He has scored 333 runs in 12 matches at an average of 30.27 and struck 3 half-centuries.

·         Smart pick – Mitchell McClenaghan is the leading wicket taker for Mumbai Indians with 18 scalps in 13 matches. Although he went for more than 9 runs an over but he picked up wickets at crucial stages of the games that mattered the most.

·         Cautious Pick – Mumbai Indians biggest contributor with the ball over the years Lasith Malinga was off colored in this season and managed to pick just 9 wickets in 9 games at a costly economy of 9.47. So be careful before picking him in your squad.

My XI – Steve Smith (Captain), Nitish Rana (Vice-Captain), Rahul Tripathi, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Parthiv Patel, Rohit Sharma, Lendl Simmons, MS Dhoni
