Captain : A Markram
The batter who is in terrific touch. He had been doing this top class batting performances in South Africa and now it has come out in India too now. Watch out. He is going to make it big.

Batters : R Sharma, S Yadav, T David, H Brooks, Tripathi
All the batters here were able to break out the pressure built on them in these few games of the tournament. With this kind of pitch, they will find it easier to build on their confidence.
Wicket keeper: I Kishan
One of the best batter of powerplay overs. And at the same time he is a big innings player too. The combination of abilities he possesses makes him our choice.
All rounders : C Green, A Markram, M Jansen
C Green hasn’t been getting his batting slot properly as MI is able to finish before that. But with the ball he has been fruitful for MI.
M Jansen’s pace is something that will be deadly for the batters to face, especially with the nature of this pitch.
Bowlers : P Chawla, B Kumar
P Chawla’s variations in the middle overs is providing MI the crucial breakthroughs. He can reach his fifer any day with the wag he is bowling now.
