19:10 hrs IST: Both teams are packed with proven performers. And both are former champions too!

18:57 hrs IST: Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the seventh match of IPL 2018!

Sunrisers have the most diverse bowling attack in the competition. They have Bhuvneshwar Kumar with his superb skill sets of seam and swing, Billy Stanlake for raw pace and Siddarth Kaul to hit the deck.

Add to it Rashid Khan’s fast leg-breaks and googlies are still a mystery for most batsmen while Shakib Al Hasan with his orthodox left-arm spin is miserly on most days.

Mumbai Indians on the other hand is filled with a galaxy of stars and are often known to be slow starters in a marathon tournament. Skipper Rohit Sharma would be expecting a better effort from his batsmen as 165 on a good batting track wasn’t par for the course.

Evin Lewis, who has two T20 hundreds against India, skipper himself and the explosive Kieron Pollard would like to show their big-hitting prowess.

For MI, the biggest gain from the opening game was young leg-spinner Mayank Markande’s performance on IPL debut as he accounted for Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni.

Mumbai’s another concern will be their death bowling as Jasprit Bumrah, Mustafizur Rahaman and Mitchell McLenaghan all missed their length with Dwayne Bravo going on a rampage during the other night at Wankhede.

Hardik Pandya played his heart out but his ankle injury could be a cause of worry for skipper Rohit.

For Sunrisers, it was a good start under new skipper Kane Williamson, who didn’t look out of place after David Warner’s suspension from the league due to ball tampering charges.

Shikhar Dhawan’s blazing form has continued, which is the biggest shot in the arm for the ‘Orange Army’ apart from a bowling attack that looks potent on any surface.
