Rising Pune Supergiant vs Mumbai Indians :Under the efficient captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Mumbai Indians (#MI) will take on Rising Pune Supergiant (#RPS) in their opening game of the 2017 Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune on Thursday.
Where as Rising Pune Supergiant play under new captain Steven Smith . RPS take on two-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians.The RPS squad is filled with star players who are capable of winning the match on their own. The players likes of Steven Smith, Ben Stokes, Faf Du Plessis,MS Dhoni and Ajinkya Rahane can destroy any bowling line-up in the league at will.


Pune have two world class spinners in their team who have been very consistent over the course of the year in international cricket. South African Imran Tahir is the reigning number one T20 bowler in the world while Australian Adam Zampa who was the leading wicket-taking spinner in ODI’s last season. Also, Zampa picked up 12 wickets in just 5 IPL matches last season and he will once again be crucial for Pune this season. the burden of captaincy taken away from him, MS Dhoni can simply go out there and enjoy his batting. With plenty of big names, especially in the batting department, Pune will count on them to deliver and take them into the playoffs.

it’ll be the third match between Rising Pune Supergiant and Mumbai Indians in IPL. RPS decided to go all-out in the 2017 auction as they bought England all-rounder Ben Stokes for a record Rs 14.5 crore. Apart from him, New Zealand’s Lockie Ferguson and India’s Manoj Tiwary turned out to be the other big buys. With Ajinkya Rahane, Steven Smith, Imran Tahir, MS Dhoni and Adam Zampa in their ranks, RPS can surely fancy their chances this time around.

A settled top order, with Rohit Sharma fit. A fine bowling unit, especially in the death overs – imagine Lasith Malinga from one end and Jasprit Bumrah from the other. And a roster full of options, which includes World T20 champion Lendl Simmons, former World Cup champion Mitchell Johnson, the fastest New Zealander to 50 ODI wickets, Mitchell McClenaghan, and Vinay Kumar, who has over 400 first-class wickets.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians have brought back Mitchell Johnson – who was a part of their campaign in their 2013 title win. Karn Sharma, who represented Sunrisers Hyderabad last season, turned out to be the most expensive Indian buy in this year’s auction (Rs 3.2 crore).

Lasith Malinga, IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker with 143 wickets in 98 matches, will be unavailable for the first few days because of national duty. The 33-year-old missed the full 2016 IPL season owing to a knee injury, which also kept him out of action for nearly a year. Rohit Sharma, who has played just two domestic games ever since he suffered a thigh injury last October, is all set to return to action.

Mumbai Indians : Parthiv Patel (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Ambati Rayudu, Jos Buttler, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell Johnson, R Vinay Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah.
