Toss Yorkshire chose to field v Mumbai Indians
Yorkshire asked Mumbai Indians to bat in Cape Town on a somewhat slow Newlands pitch. Harbhajan Singh said he would have chosen to bat anyway and said his side were confident of defending given they were playing five bowlers.
Both sides came into this match having lost their opening games. Both sides also retained their XIs from those losses. Yorkshire
