Every cricketer has a relationship with certain venues. On certain grounds, batsmen and bowlers either appear mortal, or become supermen. The Wankhede Stadium has been one such venue for former India and Rising Pune Supergaint (RPS) captain and wicketkeeper MS Dhoni. He will be in the spotlight again as the steve smith-led Rising Pune Supergaint (3 wins, 6 games, 6 points) take on host and table toppers Mumbai Indians (6 wins, 7 Games, 12 Points) in match 28 of the IPL 2017.
Mumbai is a tourture chamber for visiting teams these days. Rising Pune Supergaints would have similar attacks of nerves ahead of Monday. It won’t be much help that one of the world’s best batsman (Steve Smith), allrounder (Ben Stokes) and finisher (MS Dhoni) are the part of the touring party. They can’t bowl or bat every single delivery. Others could singe under the assault.
Mumbai aruguably are playing the most aggressive cricket of all teams. They never take the foot of the pedal. It’s not to say Rising Pune Supergaint hasn’t improved. They have won two straight games. Youngsters like Rahul Tripathi are beginning to come to life. In sum, Pune are largely made up of big names and they must bring their full weight to bear on Mumbai Indians for that great heist to happen.
