For Mumbai Indians, except Suryakumar Yadav, who has 274 runs under his belt in 7 matches, others have been inconsistent. Captain Rohit Sharma needs to get his act collectively as he has struggled to get past twenty in five games, barring the 94 against RCB and an unbeaten 56 against CSK. As far as the big-hitting West Indian all-rounder Keiron Pollard is worried, he, too, needs to find his form back as he has been not helpful so far in the tournament. Jean-Paul Duminy, who came in for Pollard in the previous game, would be itching to be in the wide of things. The South African didn’t bat in the last match as MI crossed the winning mark without his services.
