Mumbai Indian's sudden halt in their impressive run in IPL 2017 after suffering a defeat against Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) has come in very hard for them. Harbhajan Singh did hit a six in the final delivery of MI's innings, but that was too late, as Rohit Sharma's side lost by three runs to the Steve Smith-led side.
Is it retribution time now for Mumbai Indians? The Mumbaikars take on Gujarat Lions (GL) on Saturday, April 29.
The Keshav Bansal-owned Gujarat franchisee started badly this season, but they are slowly adjusting to the conditions. GL are coming into the match at the back of a morale-boosting win against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
The likes of Suresh Raina, Andrew Tye, Ravindra Jadeja and Aaron Finch remained the stars of the match. Can the fantastic four, fire again now? That remains to be seen.
Mumbai Indians, meanwhile, have to get the best out of Jos Buttler, Parthiv Patel, Mitchell McClenaghan, Rohit Sharma and the big man Kieran Pollard, to try and pose any sort of a challenge for Gujarat Lions.
