Rising Pune Supergiants vs Mumbai Indians is going to be the second match of the IPL 2017 season. This will be an exciting contest with two good captains playing together against the young captain of another team. Steven Smith and MS Dhoni’s masterclass captainship will fight with Rohit Sharma’s mind games but the two teams are really strong. It might be a tough one but who has the edge over here?
Last year, both teams won one match each and thus it was a tough affair, where the first match of the tournament was won by Rising Pune Supergiants against the Mumbai Indians and it was a very easy win. Later, it was a similar one for Mumbai to win by a good margin. Both the teams failed to enter the qualifiers but will have a lot of hope this time.

Our Prediction – IPL 2017 2nd Match Pune vs Mumbai winner
We strongly feel that Mumbai Indians will take this away, with the team that they have. Pune doesn’t have a bad team at all but the perfect T20 team combination is rather seen on the Mumbai side who have a strong batting lineup comprising of Rohit Sharma, Parthiv Patel, Ambati Rayudu, Kieron Pollard, and then bowlers like Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, and Harbhajan Singh.
What do you think? Who will win this match? Do we have any surprises to be seen here by the Steve Smith boys?
Final result – We were wrong. Steve Smith, not his boys, did it.
