Teams Preview

Mumbai Indians Preview

 

Quinton De Kock took the center stage with his 78 runs off 44 balls and led his team to victory comfortably in the chase. Rohit Sharma (35 runs) and Hardik Pandya (21* runs) provided good support to him at the other end. Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, and Kieron Pollard too have runs behind their name in this season.

MI bowlers restricted the opposition to below par score of 148 runs in their last match. Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult continued their good work and bowled superbly in the power play and death overs. Spinners Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya had combined bowling figures of 8-0-45-2 in the match and used the slowness of the track.

Top players to bet on:

Quinton De Kock – De Kock has scored 2 back-to-back fifties in the last 2 matches. He is looking in great touch and will look to continue his purple patch with the bat in this match too.

Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah has been back to his best after a few matches. He had superb bowling figures of 4-0-22-0 despite failing to take a wicket in the last match.

Mumbai Indians Predicted Playing XI:

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

Kings XI Punjab Preview

KXIP chased down the total of 171 runs in a last ball thriller. Their top-3 batsmen of Mayank Agarwal (45 runs), KL Rahul (58* runs) and Chris Gayle (53 runs) played superbly in the chase. Nicholas Pooran striked the last ball for six to take his team past the line successfully after a few tense moments in last 2-3 overs.

On the bowling front, Murugan Ashwin was superb with the ball with bowling figures of 4-0-23-2. Mohammed Shami too scaled 2 wickets while Chris Jordan and Arshdeep Singh chipped in with a wicket each in the middle overs.  They gave away too many runs in the last 2-3 overs despite taking the big wickets.

Top players to bet on:

Mayank Agarwal – Agarwal has been the aggressor with the bat for KXIP this season. He has scored 382 runs at a strike arte of 160+ in this season so far.

Mohammed Shami – Shami is bowling superbly with the new ball and taking wickets early in the match consistently. He is struggling in the death overs and leaked almost 24 runs in his last over against RCB as his figures took a beating from 3-0-21-1 to 4-0-45-2.    

Kings XI Punjab Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Gayle, KL Rahul (c & wk), Mayank Agarwal, Nicholas Pooran, Glenn Maxwell, Deepak Hooda, Chris Jordan, Murugan Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh

Weather Conditions

Dubai will have a hot and humid climate on the match day. We cannot expect dew in the second innings owing to the afternoon start of this match.

Venue Details

Dubai is expected to have slowness on the track and help spinners greatly in the match. We can see average scores in the range of 160-180 runs on this pitch and any score above 180 will be tough to chase.   

Toss: To Bat

The pitch is expected to slow down as the match progresses and both teams will be aware of this. We expect both captains to bat first if they win the toss.

Winning Prediction

MI has been firing on all cylinders and have been the best team of the tournament so far. They have a solid batting line-up and a quality bowling attack comprising of youth of experience. But they have played very less matches outside Abu Dhabi which might test their adaptability.  KXIP need to hold their heads high and play their best game ahead. They need to attack MI right from the start and give no leeway to the opposition. They have a good batting line-up with big-hitters while bowling is their weak zone. We expect Mumbai Indians to win this match.

MUMBAI INDIANS WILL WIN THE MATCH
