The Mumbai Indians sit among the top four teams (fourth place) in the table and are slowly finding form. Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab lie mid-table with four wins and four defeats.

Mumbai Indians:

Having secured 10 points at the halfway stage, Mumbai has reached fourth position following their third consecutive victory at home.

Ponting has decided to sit out and allowed West Indian all-rounder Dwayne Smith to take his place in the team as well as at the top of the batting order. D Smith has scored two fifties in the four games he has played so far and has taken two wickets in comprehensive win on Saturday over RCB.

The bowling side with Lasith Malinga and Mitchell Johnson also look like posing danger to the opposition side.

Team Mumbai Indians: Ricky Ponting (capt), Abu Nechim Ahmed, Akshar Patel, Aditya Tare, Aiden Blizzard, Ambati Rayudu, Amitoze Singh, Dhawal Kulkarni, Dinesh Karthik, Dwayne Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Harbhajan Singh, Jacob Oram, Jalaj Saxena, James Franklin, Kieron Pollard, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell Johnson, Munaf Patel, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Phil Hughes, Pawan Suyal, Pragyan Ojha, Rishi Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, Suryakumar Yadav, Sushant Marathe, Yuzvendra Singh Chahal.

Kings XI Punjab:

Kings XI are facing MI after being beaten by KKR at the Eden Gardens. The inclusion of Mandeep Singh, who has scored 219 runs in eight matches, as the partner of Gilchrist certainly looks good on the batting side.

Praveen Kumar (nine wickets) and Azhar Mahmood (11 wickets from 7) have been the main wicket-takers in the team.

Team Kings XI Punjab: Adam Gilchrist (Capt), Mandeep Singh, Luke Pomersbach, David Miller, Manan Vohra, David Hussey, Piyush Chawla, Praveen Kumar, Harmeet Singh, Bhargav Bhatt, Parvinder Awana, Azhar Mahmood, Bipul Sharma, Siddharth Chitnis, Aniket Choudhary, Manpreet Gony, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Shaun Marsh, Dimitri Mascernhas, Nitin Saini, Sandeep Sharma, Rajagopal Sathish, Sunny Singh, Paul Valthaty.
