IM vs GT: Pitch Report
We have seen a good batting track in Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. DC had scored 207 runs yesterday against the good bowling lineup of SRH here on this ground. There is some assistance for bowlers also in the initial period of innings.
Most of the strips are of Red soil, which gives good bounce and pace to bat on. We can't forget the whole IPL is going to play in only 4 venues so there will be some assistance to spin too in the middle face of the tournament.

Mumbai may try bench-strength
There is nothing left for Mumbai Indians to get in this competition. Captain Rohit Sharma has already indicated that the players who have not got a chance to play in the team till now, will also be given the opportunity.
