Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Mumbai Indians will have to get their act together against the Perth Scorchers today if they want to qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions League T20.

Former New Zealand skipper Wright and Mumbai Indians coach, appeared pretty confident. “The Delhi wicket is a good batting surface. We played Chennai Super Kings in the IPL Qualifier 1 so we know it is a good batting track.

There might be some movement early on but we have to bat really well and fast,” said the ex-India coach. T&T eye semis spot Trinidad & Tobago will try to book their semi-final berth as they take on Group ‘B’ toppers Chennai Super Kings in the last league match of the CLT20.

Sitting second in the standings, T&T will cruise to the last four stage if they beat the Super Kings, who have already qualified. But if they lose, it will boil down to the net run rate to decide whether they or the Titans go through.
