Player Availability and Team Strategy
Harry Brook, brought in as a finisher, was sent up the order to open the innings. The young English batter came up with a great century in the last game. Mayank Markande, a former MI player, has been impressive ever since he replaced Adil Rashid in the Playing Eleven.
Mayank Agarwal is in poor form. Spin has usually been his strength, but he has been dismissed by leg spinners twice this season. Tim David has a strike rate over 200 against pace in the IPL. He will be the key for MI at the death against the likes of T Natarajan, Umran Malik and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Piyush Chawla has been in excellent form to bolster that spin attack and it will be interesting to see how he fares against the likes of Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Tripathi who prefer smashing spin over pace.
