Shivam Dube: The left-hander might be a weak link in the bowling but is a dangerous batter. He has hit two explosive fifties in the tournament so far. He might do well once again with the kind of form he is in

Maheesh Theekshana: The mystery spinner from Sri Lanka took four wickets in the last game against Bangalore. He has plenty of variations up his sleeves which makes him a tough bowler to face. 

Probable XI

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Maheesh Theekshana, Mukesh Choudhary

Pitch Report: The surface is a good one to bat. However, the seamers get some help early on. Spinners also will have something to exploit from the surface. The team winning the toss might field first given the dew. However, with dying wicket, the skippers might take a different route and opt to bat first as chasing won’t be easy.
