Teams Preview

Kings XI Punjab Preview

KXIP openers shared a record opening partnership of 183 runs with Mayank Agarwal (105 runs) scoring a century and a half-century from KL Rahul (69 runs). Nicholas Pooran (25 runs) and Glenn Maxwell (13 runs) gave the finishing touches to take their team past 220 runs.

Punjab bowlers had the match in hand for most part of the chase but failed to hold the nerve in final moments.  Mohammed Shami picked up 3 wickets but gave nearly 20 runs in the penultimate over and Shledon Cottrell`s 30-run over shifted the momentum in opposition`s favour. Ravi bishnoi and James Neesham did a decent job in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Mayank Agarwal – Mayank out batted Kl Rahul in their opening partnership scoring century in just 45 balls. We don’t often see players outclassing Kl Rahul and Mayank for sure is in red-hot form.   

Mohammed Shami – Shami is their leading wicket-taker with 7 wickets to his name but he must look to improve his death bowling with execution of Yorkers and slow balls.  

Kings XI Punjab Predicted Playing XI:

Mayank Agarwal, Lokesh Rahul (c & wk), Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Karun Nair, James Neesham, Sarfaraz Khan, Krishnappa Gowtham, Mohammed Shami, Mujeeb ur Rehman/Chris Jordan, Ravi Bishnoi

Mumbai Indians Preview

MI were reduced to 39/3 inside 7 overs but Kieron Pollard (60 runs) and Ishan Kishan (99 runs) shared a massive 121-run partnership to take their team to the brink of the chase. They both scored 79 runs off last 4 overs to tie the match.  Hardik Pandya and Quinton De Kock are due for a big score in this season.

Their bowlers were taken for 200+ runs last night. Trent Boult and Rahul Chahar bowled well picking up 3 wickets between them and gave runs at less than 8 RPO. Jasprit Bumrah and James Pattinson gave runs at over 10 RPOO and were unable to stop the batsman in death overs.

Top players to bet on:

Ishan Kishan – Ishan Kishan set the stage on fire in his very first match scoring 99 runs off 58 balls with 2 boundaries and 9 sixes. He will be big player for MI in the middle order this season.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah has been off-color this season giving runs at over 10 RPO. He bowled superbly in the super over against AB & Kohli but was unlucky as the edge took the ball to boundary.  

 

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, James Pattinson, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi has a hot and humid weather with no chances of rain. We can expect dew to play a big role in the latter stages of the match.  

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi has been the least run scoring of the three venues in UAE but still has an average score of 160+ in the three matches. Any score above 170 will be considered par and will be hard to chase.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing teams have won 2 out of three matches here and we expect both teams to chase down the total if they win the toss.   

Winning Prediction

Both MI & KXIP has a superb batting line-up with big-hitters till No.6 or 7 in the batting order.  MI slightly pips KXIP in the bowling attack with the likes of Boult, Rahul Chahar, & Bumrah. KXIP will depend heavily on Shami, Jordan, and Cottrell as they have inexperienced spinners in the team barring Mujeeb. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match owing to their superior bowling attack.

MUMBAI INDIANS WILL WIN THE MATCH
