Defending a modest total of 157, Mumbai bowlers bowled their hearts out to pick up wickets at regular intervals to restrict Sunrisers to 137 for eight in 20 overs on April 25. The 20-run victory was a sure boost for the side after losing matches at the start of the season. IPL 2015 Points Table & Team

On the other hand, the Royals will think themselves to be unlucky after rain washed out their two back-to-back matches, if they lose to Mumbai. First match was against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in Kolkata on April 26, and the next against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Bangalore on Wednesday. The inaugural IPL champions had a splendid start to the tournament with five consecutive victories. But a Super Over defeat to Kings XI Punjab followed by a loss to RCB halted their unbeaten run.
