TOSS | Mumbai Indians stand-in skipper Kieron Pollard wins toss, opts to bowl against Chennai Super Kings in Sharjah
Captains at the toss:
MS Dhoni:“Last game we played here the wicket played slightly better in the second innings, so not much of a problem. Once we landed here we had a 14-day break and before that we had a seven day-camp in Chennai and once we’re here it became slightly difficult with the quarantine and there were a few phases where game went out of our hands and the batting wasn’t also upto the mark, It happens in cricket and there are quite a few reasons for why we haven’t been upto the mark. Three changes for us. Kedar Jadhav, Shane Watson, Piyush Chawla out and Jagadeesan, Gaikwad and Tahir are in.”
Kieron Pollard:“We are gonna bowl first. Don’t expect the wicket to change much and hopefully there’s some dew. We want to qualify for the playoffs first and we still have to come out and play good cricket. We have spoken about areas we need to improve and we want to execute them in the middle tonight. Rohit is struggling with his left hamstring and hopefully he will be fit soon and take the captaincy. Only change we have is Saurabh Tiwary comes in for Rohit.

Pitch Report:
“Never been a blade of grass for the 20 years I have seen this pitch, so batting becomes easy and bowling becomes hard. With the new ball, the fast bowlers will have to bowl that 8-metre back-of-the-length and not into the wicket. You need to slide it through low and get that quick skid so that the batsman finds it difficult to get under the ball. For spinners, it’s very much the same as fast bowlers. Death bowling becomes really important on this wicket and Mumbai, it’s very strange they haven’t bowled as many yorkers as CSK and they will be very confident of executing those straight yorkers and for CSK, it’s concentrating on their strength: the wide yorkers have gone for very little runs and they really need to execute that well. Team that wins the toss would want to bat first.”Kumar Sangakkara and Murali Kartik
