MI vs KXIP Dream11 team prediction: Pre Info:
Mumbai Indians will face Kings XI Punjab will face each other in the second game of the doubleheader scheduled on Sunday. Mumbai Indians have looked the most balanced side in the league and are on a winning run of five games. They won their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders with relative ease. All the players have turned into match-winners for the side and have come up with the best performance whenever needed. The openers Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma can play big innings whenever needed whereas the middle order is one of the most stable in the entire league. Bowling is enviable and is inarguably one of the best in the league. The young spinner Rahul Chahar has filled in the shoes of the single spinner and has taken up the responsibility. The side has no visible holes in their side and only a special performance from Kings XI Punjab pushes them towards a win in the game.
This special performance can come from the bat of Chris Gayle who was included in the side in their last game and won the match with some exceptional hitting. KL Rahul has been in excellent form and so has been Mayank Agarwal. The only question has been Rahul’s strike-rate who has struggled when needed the most. However, the top order of Kings XI Punjab is scary, to say the least, and can win games on their own. On papers, the presence of Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell makes them the most potent batting line-up in the league. However, the results haven’t transformed in games and this has been the biggest shortcoming for the team. The bowling has been even worse for the team and is their main weakness. The side is currently on the last spot and needs to win all of their remaining games if they want to qualify for the playoffs. A victory today would be a huge morale booster of Punjab in the do or die game.
