MI vs PBKS Dream11 Match Preview
Mumbai Indians have started their campaign with 4 defeats in 4 games. They need to start winning now as the competition in the points table is very high and it won’t be easy for them to qualify for the play-offs if they lose one or two matches from this situation. They were defeated by RCB by 7 wickets in their last game. MI’s batting hasn’t been upto the mark while the bowling too has been very inconsistent. Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan have failed to convert their starts in the last few games while the middle-order has failed miserably except Suryakumar Yadav who has scored 2 fifties in the last two games.
MI chose an unexpected playing XI in the last game with only two overseas players. Their bowling was very weak and it showed in their performance as RCB won the game easily by 7 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard, Rohit Sharma, and Ishan Kishan’s failure is the main reason for their poor performance and they will look to take responsibility and win games for their side now.Watch: Hardik Pandya shouts at Mohammed Shami after he doesn't attempt a catch
Punjab Kings have won 2 games and lost 2 after playing 4 matches. They lost their last game in a thriller against the Gujarat Titans. PBKS are looking good as a team and are playing an aggressive brand of cricket with the bat. Their batters attack from ball one and keep playing their shots even if they keep losing wickets. Batting depth is a serious issue for them as they have only 6 batters in their side and out of those 6, Mayank Agarwal and Shahrukh Khan have failed miserably. Punjab may look to be a little more cautious in the middle-overs in this game. They will need runs from Mayank and Shahrukh to do well in the upcoming games.
Punjab’s bowling has been decent till now but it can be improved. Kagiso Rabada is not at his best at the moment, same goes for Arshdeep Singh as well. Vaibhav Arora has swung the new ball and will be crucial for them in the power play. Rahul Chahar has been exceptional in the spin department for them. Livingstone too has been impressive with the ball. Punjab Kings will look to get back on the winning track in this game.
