Defending champions Bengaluru Bulls started their season with a win on the opening night before dropping points in their next outing. Their star raider Pawan ‘Hi-Flyer’ Sehrawat has already shown glimpses of his brilliance this season and Bengaluru Bulls will be hoping he finds top form against U Mumba. Sehrawat will have some help in attack from skipper Rohit Kumar and Sumit Singh.

The likes of Mahender Singh and Amit Sheoran will hope to step up their game in defence on Sunday.
