Let us, try and churn out the top-5 things to look out in the game:
#5 Weather & Pitch
The Mumbai weather might be a little hotter than normal. The pitch here offers big scores and also the ones that can be chased. The last match at Wankhede against the Royals offered a 180+ score that was chased down. In any case, both the teams this time are batting heavyweights and again a high-scoring encounter seems to be on the cards.
