MI vs GL IPL 2016 Match Preview
The toss is done! Gujarat Lions have opted to bowl first. A flat track, good to chase down a total. Rohit Sharma too wanted to bowl first. The Rajkot hero Ravindra Jadeja has been replaced by the local boy Dhawal Kulkarni. Probably Raina wants to bank on his home venue experience. This is the match of the day. The other match between KKR and SRH ended as a one sided affair. Kolkata Knight Riders clinched a win at Hyderabad. Let's see who would win here at Wankhede tonight.

Gujarat Lions are the table toppers at this moment. Played two and won two! Aaron Finch is in golden touch. He smashed the bowlers all over and won two Man of the Match awards. Brendon McCullum played well against Dhoni's men the other night. It's always a treat to watch Baz bat. Suresh Raina hasn't yet clicked well and he would love to bat on the Wankhede track. Dwayne Bravo, as usual is contributing his best. Getting some runs and wickets too!
Mumbai Indians suffered a loss against Rising Pune Supergiants but bounced back well at the Eden Gardens to chase down a big total. Rohit Sharma scored heavily and crowd enjoyed his aggression. Lendl Simmons, the hero in West Indies win over India in the T20 World Cup 2016 semi finals; is injured. MI has called up Kiwi hard hitting batsman Martin Guptill. He finally gets an opportunity to show his hard hitting batting skills in the Indian Premier League.
Raina needs 29 runs to reach the 6000 runs mark in T20 cricket. Let's see if he achieves that feat tonight at the Wankhede Stadium. Rohit Sharma who easily hits sixes needs just one more the be a part of 150 sixes league in IPL. He will join the club with Gayle and Raina.
The track here in Mumbai has offered so much of help to the batsmen. A smart spinner may come in handy for the captain. Otherwise, the batsmen can feast on the bowlers. So expect some towering sixes tonight. Catch the enthrallment live on HotStar and Sony Six.
