We have got some useful Betting tips for you which 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.
For Kings XI Punjab, the batting will rely on in-form KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. However, Punjab would be disappointed with their bowling performance in the last game as they leaked more than 80 runs in the last five overs versus RR. Thus, they would need to pull up their socks.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians could not come up with a complete performance against RCB. The batting of Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard was one positive in the last game but they were mostly behind the eight-ball against RCB. They would want more from their batsmen as they have world class bowlers in their team.
Head to Head:
Total matches – 24, Won by MI – 13, Won by KXIP – 11.
Players to watch out for: KL Rahul previous three scores against Mumbai Indians has been 94, 71* and 100* and he is looking in fine form. Mayank Agarwal is looking like a different white ball batsman these days and both of them will hold the key.
Ravi Bishnoi and Mohammed Shami will be the key bowlers for KXIP.
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock will need to be more consistent at the top of the order for MI. Ishan Kishan had a perfect opening game whereas Kieron Pollard looked dangerous.
Bumrah and Trent Boult will be the lead fast bowlers for MI.
