Time: 7:30 PM IST


It will be Rohit Sharma against Mayank Agarwal in today’s fixture of the TATA IPL.

Mumbai Indians, like CSK, have lost four matches on the trot and are hungry for their first points.

Punjab Kings on the other hand too have lost their last fixture against the Gujarat Titans.

Rahul Tewatia smashed 2 massive sixes in the last two balls of the second innings to take Gujarat home.

Punjab would definitely like to upstage Mumbai in today’s encounter as they would like to advance further ahead in the tournament.

It is also a great opportunity for Rohit Sharma to score those 25 remaining runs to reach 10,000 runs in the IPL and will become the second player to do so after Virat Kohli.

Additionally, Rohit will also end his second-longest run without an IPL fifty.
