Keeping the good batting side benefit in mind, the toss result becomes a key point of the match. That is why India lost the semifinal to West Indies.

Both teams looks very good on cards as they have good squad based on which both are capable of clinching the title. However, Mumbai side will be under pressure as they defending champions and would definitely like to start the tournament with a victory.

Mumbai Indians have made some minor changes to suit the current need. Majority of the squad from last season is same. The good tweaks includes the inclusion of Jos Buttler, one of the best T20 batsmen. If Buttler gets to play as per his form, he would prove devastating to RPS.
On the other hand, Rising Pune is one of the two new teams this season. Thus, Pune Supergiants would be looking to settle down with a perfect playing eleven. Under the coaching of Stephen Fleming and captaincy of Dhoni, RPS is almost like CSK so the team should do well as per the expectations.
The unity and strength of new team RPS will be seen against Mumbai Indians today. Dhoni and Fleming has all the required players. The key to successful game is the right balance and position on thier side. The team need a right combination of four foreigners and seven indian players in the playing XI.
