Mumbai: Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has been rested ahead of the clash against Kings XI Punjab at the Wankhede Stadium on Wednesday. Rohit had suffered a right leg muscle spasm during a training session on the eve of the match.

The Hitman has recovered significantly in past 24 hours, but as a precautionary measure, the Mumbai Indians said the team management has decided to rest him for one match as a precautionary measure. In the absence of Rohit, Mumbai will be led by Kieron Pollard. Mumbai have won the toss and opted to bowl against R Ashwin-led Punjab.
