Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team and help them win big.

Match and Pitch Condition

Weather: A sunny day with a temperature around 30-32° during the match.

Pitch condition: The last six IPL matches on this ground are won by chasing team. So it is obvious that team winning the toss is expected to take the field first. Wankhede Stadium has been batting friendly and a high scoring match is expected again.


  • MI have won four of their last six matches at Wankhede Stadium. And they are yet to lose a match on their home ground this season. At Wankhede, they have defeated table toppers SRH and KKR this season.
  • Rohit Sharma’s this season scores read 3, 2, 4 and 0. He is yet to hit a boundary this season.


Team News

  • Dwayne Bravo had his first full net session earlier this week but he’s still going to miss a few matches.
  • There is no clarity over Ambati Rayadu fitness and still unknown when he will be back. We will update if we find out about his fitness.
  • Except these two, rest of the players from both teams are fit and available to play.
  • Both teams won their respective last matches on Friday so they are expected not to tinker with their lineup too much.
  • Lasith Malinga (he was not fit for the last match) is expected to come in for Tim Southee for this clash.
