Mumbai Indians: Ambati Rayudu and Nitish Rana batted in adjacent nets, yet there will be space for only one of them in the final line-up. Rayudu earned his spot after a half-century in MI's last league stage game against KKR, but fell for a duck in the all-important qualifier. Rohit Sharma could be tempted to lean towards the consistency of Rana, who has 333 runs in 12 outings.
Rohit Sharma could also have a decision on his hands with regards to Harbhajan Singh and Karn Sharma. Harbhajan hasn't played since being toyed with by Kings XI Punjab, but if packing the side with experience is on Rohit's priority list, then the offspinner could be drafted in.
