MI vs RPS IPL 2017 MATCH 28 MI look for revenge in Maharashtra Derby

MI vs RPS IPL 2017 MATCH 28






ipl live,It is the return leg of the Maharashtra Derby, and this time it is Rising Pune Supergiant visiting the Mumbai Indians. MI sit at the perch of the VIVO IPL 2017 standings with six wins, while RPS are part of the mid-table muddle with three wins and as many defeats.

ipl live streaming, MI are riding a high – having equalled their longest winning streak in the IPL. They began the season with a defeat against this very opponent, but have since posted six consecutive wins. In their most-recent outing, they defeated the Delhi Daredevils in a low-scoring contest; after posting a below-par 142-8, the MI bowlers ran in with fire, and backed by their fielders, they blew away the Daredevils line-up, reducing them to 24-6 in the first part of the chase. Seldom has one seen such intensity from a bowling and fielding side in the IPL as one saw from MI on Saturday night.

ipl cricket matchRising Pune Supergiant must be riding a high too after their thrilling last-ball chase against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The opening batsman Rahul Tripathi set up the chase with his maiden T20 half-century, while MS Dhoni finished the chase in style, accelerating at the right time and taking his team over the line by scoring a boundary off the last ball.

ipl 2017, MI are operating like a well-oiled machine. But for RPS, the performance of the bowlers continues to be a worry; the team has continuously leaked runs at the death – especially in the last two overs, and that is an area the team will have to come up with massive improvements in if they are to be serious playoff contenders.

The Protagonists

Though MI have all departments doing the job as per expectations, the one person who has made critical contributions to the team’s success is their one-drop batsman Nitish Rana. The left-hander is the team’s top run-getter this season and has scored three half-centuries in the team’s six wins. Jos Buttler has got starts in five of the six innings this season, but gone past the 50-run mark only once.live score,t20 ipl live, The Englishman is an extremely dangerous player, and the longer he stays at the crease, the more damage he can do to the opposition.

Ajinkya Rahane has had an up and down tournament; but he will be playing at the Wankhede Stadium – a venue where he has played plenty of cricket from his childhood – and he will look to get a good one on his home ground. Opener Rahul Tripathi has had three good outings and the 26-year old will look to add more runs to his tally on what has generally been a very sportive surface at the Wankhede Stadium. The captain Steven Smith will be another important player in RPS’ scheme of things.

With the ball, keep an eye out on the Mitchells – Johnson and McClenaghan. The former bowled well in his maiden outing this season, while the latter has come back strongly after a poor start to the tournament. Harbhajan Singh has bowled beautifully without getting the returns he deserves, while RPS’ highest wicket-taker Imran Tahir is always in the thick of things.

Match within the match ipl live match,

Rohit Sharma has a dismal record against leg-spinners this season; the MI captain has faced 11 deliveries against the leggies, has scored only 4 runs and has been dismissed on 4 occasions. Both players will be aware of these numbers, and therefore if Rohit Sharma comes up against Imran Tahir, it will make for an interesting contest.

Against Mitchell McClenaghan, Steven Smith has scored at a strike-rate of 150 in the IPL, while Ajinkya Rahane has gone even better, scoring at the strike-rate of 162.50. That is another match up to keep an eye on when RPS come out to bat.
