Mumbai Indians seems free from all injury concerns ahead of their crucial match-up against the Kings XI Punjab. Though they ended up losing their last game to the Rajasthan Royals, the team is expected to go in with an unchanged line-up.
Suryakumar Yadav has scored the most runs for Mumbai Indians this IPL season. The opener had hit a fifty in the reverse encounter and the team will expect him to score big this time as well. His partner Evin Lewis has two good knocks in the last three matches while Ishan Kishan showed his class recently against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Rohit Sharma is due for a big innings while Hardik Pandya, who is second on the wickets charts, is also a dangerous batsman in the middle order. Jasprit Bumrah will be the key man with the new ball and a top contender for taking early wickets. Leg-spinner Mayank Markande has been very impressive with 14 wickets and he too could make an impact with the ball here.
After winning three games on the trot – one against the Kings XI Punjab and the next two against the Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians suffered a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals in their last game. They have slipped to the sixth spot in the IPL 2018 league standings with five wins and seven losses from twelve fixtures. MI now have to win both their remaining matches in order to be in contention for the playoffs.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman is nursing a hand injury and is doubtful for this game. The Afghan off-spinner sustained the injury in the match against the Kolkata Knight Riders and was replaced by Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis in the last match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. KXIP will be hoping that their strike bowler returns for this all-important clash.
With the middle order not firing for KXIP, the onus will once again be on the opening pair of Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle to take the team off to a blazing start. Rahul has scored over 60 in three of his last four innings but Gayle has not got going since that fifty against the Mumbai Indians in the reverse fixture. Aaron Finch and Marcus Stoinis are powerful strikers of the ball and the team will need them to be in full flow. Andrew Tye has been exceptional with the ball. The Australian fast bowler is leading the wickets charts with 20 wickets and he will be KXIP’s best bet to rattle the opposition’s top order. The team will have their fingers crossed for Mujeeb Ur Rahman and if he plays, MI will have another bowler to watch out for.
Once the table toppers, Kings XI Punjab have slumped to fifth in the league standings with six wins and as many defeats from twelve matches. They have lost four of their last five games, including their last three in a row which has put them in a tricky situation. KXIP must now win both their remaining matches to ensure a place in the playoffs. But if they happen to win just one of those, it could all come down to the net run-rate.
- No changes are expected from Mumbai side.
- 4 foreign Players – Lewis, Duminy, Cutting, McCleneghan.
Kings XI Punjab:
- If Mujeeb is fit he will replace Stionis.
- KXIP are struggling in middle order. So, they may try Miller today.
- No other changes are expected.
- 4 Foreign Players – Gayle, Miller, Tye, Finch.
