The match would be exciting as KXIP will be up against a team that is on the winning strike in their own home ground. Both the team has the completely different fortune in the season so far.
Mumbai Indians started their campaign with a loss against Pune but have won every match since that. On the other hand, Punjab started their campaign positively as they won a couple of their matches in the beginning but have not won since that. Mumbai Indians would love to continue their winning run and move to the top of the points table after this match. Punjab on the other side would love to get back to winning ways. They have already lost three games in the season and need to get back to winning ways if they want to go further in the competition.
Mumbai would start the match as the clear favourite simple because of the quality of players that they have in the lineup and the current for of the player. If we look at the squad of Mumbai Indians, then we would find all of their players have performed well at least one of the match. In the last match, it was Pollard and Rohit Sharma that brought the team home. They batted brilliantly. The main challenge for Punjab bowlers would be Nitish Rana who is in the form of his life at this moment.
Rana has performed brilliantly in the competition and is among the top 5 run getters in the tournament so far. The bowling lineup also looks fairly strong. They have Malinga, Southee, Harbhajan Singh, Kunal Pandya in their lineup. In the batting department, they have Rohit Sharma, Pollard, Parthiv Patel, Josh Buttler, Nitish Rana. Hardik Pandya. Punjab need to bowl well in this match if they want to restrict Mumbai batsman from making huge total.
Punjab on the other side is heavily dependent of their batting lineup. They have the likes of Vohra who performed brilliantly in the last match. They also have Amla, Maxwell, Miller in the lineup that could destroy any bowling lineup. They need to put more focus in the bowling department.
They have bowled brilliantly in the recent games which ahs been the main reason behind their consecutive losses. They need to play this game well as Mumbai is the one team that could win the match from the worst condition also. Punjab will have the much-needed home support in this match which will be added benefit for them.
MI vs KXIP Match Prediction:
Kings XI Punjab will win this match.
