Mumbai Indians vs Rising Pune SuperGiants

IPL 2016 begins with Mumbai Indians vs Rising Pune SuperGiants match today at Wankhede. Watch live streaming of IPL 2016 matches on HotStar and live telecast on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN HD TV network with live Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Bengali and English commentary.

Mumbai Indians are the defending champions and would kick off the proceedings on their home ground, Wankhede. The same venue where India lifted the 2011 World cup and got eliminated in the 2016 T20 world cup semi finals. With sweet and sour memories, cricket fans would gather at Wankhede to witness two teams that belong to the same state - Maharashtra.

Rising Pune SuperGiants under the captaincy of MS Dhoni will make a debut tonight. It would be interesting to see if MS can reproduce the Chennai Super Kings magic with his new franchise. The team has match winners such as KP, Smith, Faf du Plessis and many more to name. Some of CSK mates such as Jadeja, Raina, Bravo and McCullum are now a part of another new franchise Rajkot Lions. While we won't see the strong CSK in action again for a minimum of two years, let us welcome two new teams to the IPL stage.

Mumbai Indians have made only seven buys this year. Jos Buttler is their most expensive purchase this year. Slowly the English players are making an entry into the IPL. Kevin Pietersen has another new franchise - Pune SuperGiants. 

Lasith Malinga, the highest wicket taker in the IPL history may miss few matches this year due to injury. MI would prefer Mitchell McClenaghan. Other prominent faces that may play today would be Kieron Pollard, Harbhajan Singh and Corey Anderson. 

Supergiants have to rely on the overseas players for batting while they have picked a lot of Indian bowlers in the squad. So the bowling options available for MS Dhoni would be Ashwin, Ishwar Pandey, Ishant Sharma, Dinda or Irfan Pathan. 

Wankhede being a venue for loads of runs, we can expect a bad day for bowlers but good day for batsmen and spectators! Also fans would love to see Rohit Sharma opening for Mumbai Indians and hit some good runs tonight. Stay tuned with us for more match previews and reviews. Enjoy the Vivo IPL 2016 live streaming on HotStar and live telecast on Sony Six, Sony Max and Sony ESPN.
