This match will be played in Dubai from 7.30 pm onwards. In the second half of IPL 2021, the winning account of these two teams has not yet opened. Both the teams have played two matches each, in which they have to face defeat. In such a situation, both the teams will try their best to avoid a hat-trick of defeat on Sunday.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya is not being picked in Mumbai’s playing XI as he may not be 100 per cent fit to shoulder his all-rounder’s responsibility.
