In absence of Ashwin, the Rising Pune Supergaints will look to count on the experience of the Aussie cricketer and RPS skipper Steve Smith along with the backing of the wicket-keeper batsmen Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
For Mumbai Indians it will be just another match in which they would be hoping to make the most of the stupendous batting power they possess in their lineup. With several new faces in the team and few of the world class experienced cricketers MI looks solid and is expected to make a mark in this year of Indian Premier League.
Skipper Rohit Sharma will be the man for the Mumbai Indians team along with the likes of young talent their team is expected to give a good show on field.
