The Australian pacer Riley Meredith has been impressive with three wickets in two appearances at an economy of 8.13.
Jasprit Bumrah has picked up only five wickets in eight games, which is one of the reasons for the down fall of the team.
Jaydev Unadkat has picked up six wickets and scored 59 runs in five appearances. However, he needs to put the brakes on the opposition with the current economy rate of 9.50.
Hrithik Shokeen is returning with economical figures, but is not a wicket-taking option for the team. He scored 25 off 25 balls in his debut game for MI, and is a handy contributor with the bat in the lower order.
The Australian all-rounder Daniel Sams was brought back in the team against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), and finished with figures of 4/30.
Tim David was ousted from the team with only 14 runs in three games. He is expected to be a part of the Playing XI for this fixture, with Pollard being rested.
In his IPL debut, Dewald Brevis scored a quickfire 29, which helped him keep a permanent position in the side. Then he returned with a sensational knock of 49 of 25 balls against Punjab Kings (PBKS), by hitting 28 runs off Rahul Chahar’s single over.
The youngster Tilak Varma is the leading run-scorer for the MI team in his debut IPL season, with 272 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of 140.21. He registered his highest score of 61 against the Royals.
Although, Suryakumar Yadav joined the team late, but has done well to garner 239 runs in six innings at a strike rate of 151.27.
Captain Sharma has garnered only 153 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of 126.45. His top score of 41 came against DC in their tournament opener.
The wicket-keeper Kishan has struggled after a whirlwind knock of 81* off 48 balls. His last three innings are read as 8,0, and 13, which surely depicts the southpaw has not troubled the team’s scores enough in the tournament.
