Mumbai Indians

  • Top Order: MI has been winning consistently and they will go with the same playing 11 again. Captain Rohit Sharma will open with Ishan Kishan then Cameron Green at number 3. This is a strong top-order currently. Green has scored 99 runs and picked 3 wickets so far.
  • Middle Order: Tilak Varma is the leading run scorer with 214 runs so far and Suryakumar Yadav is getting into his form again. Tim David is also in good touch and he is scoring useful runs for the team. Arjun Tendulkar bowled decently so far and he will be backed again in the middle-order along with Nehal Wadhera.

Punjab Kings

  • Top Order: After missing two matches, we are expecting skipper Shikhar Dhawan to play this match against MI. Harpreet Bhatia and Matthew Short will be backed again for the top-order.
  • Middle Order: Sikandar Raza might have to sit out once again to make place for Liam Livingstone. Sam Curran can be a game changer all-rounder for PBKS in this match. Wicket keeper Jitesh Sharma displayed his strength in the last match against RCB. Shahrukh Khan and Harpreet Brar will also be in the playing 11 again. Brar was impressive with the ball against RCB.
  • Lower Order: Nathan Ellis was picked above Rabada in the last match but we are expecting Rabada to return again. Rabada has picked 3 wickets in 2 matches. Arshdeep Singh is currently the leading pacer of PBKS team. Rahul Chahar is the leading spinner but he has picked only 2 wickets in 6 matches.
