Mumbai Indians were dealt twin blows going into the game as skipper Rohit Sharma and all-rounder Hardik Pandya missed out.

Kieron Pollard came out to the toss for Mumbai as the stand-in skipper. At the time of toss, Pollard said: "We weren't so sure, so happy that I lost the toss. Rohit is okay he'll be fine sooner rather than later, I'm just the captain for today. We started a couple of months back. Rohit misses out, Hardik is not playing as well. Anmolpreet makes his debut, that's about it, all others are regular players."
