MI V/S PBKS MI V/S PBKS Match Prediction (Team Preview)
Their batting order of the Punjab team appears to be the most powerful and organized in IPL 2021. They have Boss Chris Gayle; and best T20 batsman Dawid Malan. The team is led by captain KL Rahul and young players like Mandeep Singh and Mayank Agarwal. In the middle order, they have players like Sarfaraz and Shahrukh, while in the lower order, they have Moises Henriques, who can crush out the score when needed. They seem as though a batting side in IPL-14 season.
This year they have come out with some genuine improvements to their bowling. They have players like Chris Jordan, Jhye Richardson, Riley Meredith, and Mohammed Shami. They have an amazing trio of spinners which includes Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin, and Saurabh Kumar. Arshdeep Singh’s name is worth mentioning here as he can turn the situation of any match
Mumbai Indians will depend intensely on their top order in today’s match, and Rohit Sharma will need to fire with his bat alongside Quinton De Kock. Mumbai Indian Captain is capable of turning any game towards his team. We can’t find him performing at the same pace in a few previous games yet, but we expect that he will come back soon. Suryakumar Yadav is performing amazingly in the middle order. At the same time, Ishan Kishan hasn’t found his touch and will hope to open up his bat. They have Pandya siblings and Kieron Pollard, which makes them firm on the batting side.
Their bowlers are looking equally able to take on the Punjab Kings. Jasprit Bumrah has consistently shown his outstanding performance and shows that why he is the best bowler. He can keep a low economy all through the overs. He’ll be joined by Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar, who could have a considerable effect this season. They have Piyush Chawla in and Adam Milne to offer help.
