Current Form – PBKS last four matches – W L L L
Punjab Kings haven’t been able to come up with collective effort in the last two matches. The KL Rahul-led team has failed to put up a performance with the bat and they will aim to turn the tables against MI. PBKS will need to get runs on the board as they have struggled to get going in the last two matches.
MI last four matches – L W W L
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, have also struggled to get going with the bat. MI haven’t been able to go past the 160-run mark, which is a tad surprising as they have a formidable batting line-up. However, their bowling has been top class and the two matches they have won have been because of their bowlers.
Head to Head – Overall matches – 26, Won by MI – 14, Won by PBKS – 12.
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.
Match Prediction – Mumbai Indians will enter the match as red-hot favourites against Punjab Kings, who are lacking in confidence.
