PREVIEW FOR DREAM11 FANTASY:
The outstanding batting of Mayank Agarwal has now gone unrewarded two times. He scored 89 runs off 60 balls to lead a recovery from the team of Delhi Capitals only to fall two deliveries short and after the tie, KXIP lost the match in Super Over. Against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), captain KL Rahul performed in a fantastic way with the bat and led the team to win the match, but a ton of Agarwal in a total score of 223/2 last time, couldn’t prevent KXIP a loss to Rajasthan Royals.
On the other hand, to date, Mumbai Indians has won only one match and lost the opening match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and another one from RCB. The one winning match was a memorable one, though MI captain Rohit Sharma smashed 80 runs in 49 balls and claimed a victory against Kolkata Knight Riders. After the outstanding performance of Kieron Pollard in the last match, he could shift up the batting order.
Hot and clear weather can be expected in Abu Dhabi during the match.
The pitch at Abu Dhabi is batting-friendly with a lot of runs on this surface.
