Match Predictions for Maharashtra vs Mumbai

Maharashtra is the most likely winner of this fixture. A win here will strengthen Maharashtra’s position in the top 2 of the points table. The team’s batting order is slowly finding its groove again. Whereas, Mumbai’s star-stubbed team is underperforming in this tournament. The team known for their splendid batting has ironically failed in that department. Interesting game ahead.
