We have got some useful Betting tips for you that can help you in placing the right bets. We will discuss current form, head to head, stats, and players to watch out for in the upcoming match.
PBKS have lost their last three matches and they will aim to return back to winning ways but will have their work cut out against the reigning champions. PBKS were bundled out for 106 against Chennai Super Kings and could only post 120 runs against SRH. Thus, the KL Rahul-led team will aim to come up with a better batting performance against MI.
Mumbai Indians have also struggled with the bat. In fact, MI is yet to go past the 160-run mark in the four matches and their potent bowling attack has kept them in the game. Consequently, MI will want more from their middle-order, which has failed to deliver the goods so far.
Both the teams will look to come up with better batting performances.
Head to Head – Overall matches – 26, Won by MI – 14, Won by PBKS – 12.
Mumbai Indians have a slight advantage if we consider the head to head battle.
Players to watch out for – Mumbai Indians will rely on Quinton de Kock Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Jasprit Bumrah.
Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, and Nicholas Pooran will be the key players for PBKS.
