1. Team News - Mumbai Indians
The defending champions dished out an underwhelming performance with both bat and ball against Super Kings. Several of their batsmen, including skipper Rohit Sharma, got the start but failed to get a move on. Mumbai bowlers were equally tentative and it is amply reflected in the fact that Jasprit Bumrah, usually a parsimonious customer, was their most expensive bowler. They will be eyeing a total overhaul in their performance.

The Knight Riders are an embarrassing array of talents in their ranks. The likes of Sunil Narine, Andre Russell are the fibre of KKR unit and it has been strengthened for IPL 2020 by the addition of Eoin Morgan and Pat Cummins. Dinesh Karthik, their captain, is a seasoned hand and can easily adapt to situations, and also remains a very good wicketkeeper. The domestic talents like Nitish Rana and Rinku Singh too can be dangerous.
