Full Cricket Scorecard, Mumbai Indians vs Rising Pune Supergiant, IPL 2017, match 28
MI have had the perfect start to their IPL 2017 journey with six victories from seven matches. They are sitting atop the IPL 10 points table and will be immensely confident walking into the match against RPS who were at the bottom of the points table but climbed up the ladder with the victory they got in their last match. MS Dhoni played a stellar knock in the match after a lean curve in the initial phase of IPL 2017 and RPS will look forward to more such knocks and fireworks from their former captain. There will also be the likes of Steven Smith and Imran Tahir to watch out for in the squad.
Mumbai too have their set of performers who have been consistent in this season. Youngsters like Nitish Rana and Krunal Pandya have emerged as the top performers for the side while veteran members like Kieron Pollard and skipper Rohit Sharma have also taken the charge when needed. All in all, a good contest of cricket awaits the spectators.
