New Delhi: After coming off big wins, Mumbai Indians and West Indian outfit Trinidad and Tobago would be high on their confidence when they lock horns in the second semifinal of the Champions League Twenty20 here Saturday.
While Mumbai thrashed Perth Scorchers by six wickets, T&T annihilated two-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets in their respective last league encounters.
Both the teams were sailing in the same boat with no other option but to win their final group matches and they did it in style on October 2 at the Feroze Shah Kotla stadium.
2011 champions Mumbai and T&T are evenly-matched on paper as both the teams boast of big match-winners in Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Smith, Sunil Narine, Lendl Simmons, Ravi Rampaul and Darren Bravo.
The star-studded Mumbai side would be more than keen to reach the final of the Champions League and give a fitting farewell to their iconic batsman Sachin Tendulkar by lifting the trophy for the second time.
With all the probabilities Tendulkar is playing his last Champions League tournament after announcing his retirement from the Indian Premier League this year.
Even though the Mumbai outfit did not get off to an ideal start as they suffered a defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals in the opening match before their second tie was washed out, they came back strongly to stamp their authority against the Lions and Scorchers in Group 'A'.
Mumbai would look for nothing less than a repeat of their dominating show against the Scorchers where both their batsmen and bowlers fired in unison.
