Match and Pitch Condition
Weather: There are very slight chances of rain – around 4-5% but probably that would not affect the match.
Pitch Condition: In this season of the IPL, the first innings score on this ground reads as 183, 172, 213 and 188. The pitch has been batting friendly and the boundaries are short. So the same type of pitch is expected again and with both teams having some world class T20 batsman in their lineup, a high scoring game can be expected.
- Both teams are expected to not make any changes unless there is a last-minute injury.
- MI would bring back Krunal Pandya in place of Karn Sharma if he is fit.
- GL may look to bring in another spinner or pacer in place of Ankit Soni.
