Mumbai Indians Vs Pune Warriors

Mumbai Vs Pune Live Streaming

Mumbai Indians Vs Pune Warriors is going to be a big match. Not because it features two big names viz. Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly but also because these two teams are looking for a win. Mumbai Indians are placed on 3rd position and a win from here on will just strengthen their position in top four teams. But a loss may bring them down the order. Similarly Pune Warriors are placed in the bottom half of points tally and they badly need a win to climb up few places and keep their play-off hopes alive.

For many years we have seen Ganguly and Sachin batting together and none of us can miss the opportunity of watching them playing against each other. Venue for this match is Subroto Roy Sahara Stadium in Pune. So Pune Warriors will have the home advantage but as Mumbai is also a team that belongs to Maharasthra, we may see the support equally divided amongst the two teams.

Mumbai Indians haven't been the strongest of the teams but they are hard to beat as well. Batting line up has suffered from inconsistency from players like Sachin Tendulkar, Franklin, Karthik, Pollard, etc. Bowling looks fragile when Malinga doesn't bowl well. After a brilliant start to IPL this year, Munaf now looks less effective. Harbhajan hasn't clicked form yet which is not a good sign for the team.

Pune has played well in patches. The way they begin their IPL 2012 journey, it seemed they won't look back. But recent defeats have been a major setback for them placing them in the bottom half of the points tally. Batting line up looks strong with the likes of Ganguly, Ryder, Uthappa, Samuels, etc. But they all need to click well if they have to beat the Mumbai Indians. Rahul Sharma, Samuels, Nehra and Wayne Parnell are all capable enough to trouble the Mumbai batsmen.
