Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings Preview

Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings will clash in match 23 of the Indian T20 League. Mumbai has been poor so far in the tournament, losing all their four games. Meanwhile, Punjab have played 4 games, winning two and losing as many. The biggest concern for the Mumbai team is their bowling which looks too bleak at the moment. Also, the form of Rohit Sharma is a cause of concern.

For Punjab, they have played an aggressive brand of cricket. The con of playing bang-bang cricket is that you cannot consistently win the games. The same has happened with Punjab. But they are a good team, capable enough to win against any opposition.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai need some changes in the bowling and they might bring in Riley Meredith in place of Basil Thampi

Top Order

Mumbai will go into the match with the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan. Following them will be Baby AB, Dewald Brevis. The Men in blue will be desperate for runs from Rohit Sharma

Middle Order

Suryakumar Yadav, Ramandeep Singh and Tilak Varma will be the middle order players. Yadav has been terrific in both the games he has played. Meanwhile, Varma has also impressed one and all.


Kieron Pollard will be the all-rounder of the team. He can be lethal in the final overs and can chip in a few overs as well.


We feel Mumbai will bring Riley Meredith to the team in place of Basil Thampi. Jasprit Bumrah, Jaydev Unadkat and Murugan Ashwin will be the other bowlers.

MI Key Batters

  • Ishan Kishan - Kishan has scored a couple of 50s in the tournament. However, he is yet to display his best batting skills. Mumbai will need him to be at the top of his game in the next game.
  • Suryakumar Yadav - Yadav has played two games so far and in both games, he bailed Mumbai out of trouble and helped them to a decent total. Yadav will be key for Mumbai.
  • Rohit Sharma - Despite his low returns, Rohit will be key to Mumbai's chances in the next game.

MI Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Rohit Sharma 217 5691 30.9 130.32 40/1
Ishan Kishan 65 1627 30.13 135.02 11/0
Suryakumar Yadav 117 2461 30.01 136.87 15/0

MI Key Bowlers

  • Jasprit Bumrah - Bumrah has blown hot and cold in the tournament so far and Mumbai will be expecting a bit more consistency from him.
  • Murugan Ashwin - Ashwin has bowled well but he hasn't got many wickets. But a leg spinner is always a wicket-taker and Mumbai will hope he bags a few wickets in the next game.
  • Riley Meredith - Meredith can bowl with a good pace and can trouble the batters with his variations. If he gets a game, he will be keen to make an impact.

MI Top Bowler Stats 

Bowlers Matches Wickets Average Economy Best Figures
Jasprit Bumrah 110 133 23.41 7.45 4/14
Murugan Ashwin 38 30 32.6 7.82 3/21
Riley Meredith 5 4 42.25 9.94 1-29

MI Probable Playing 11

Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Ramandeep Singh , Murugan Ashwin, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Riley Meredith.

Punjab Kings

Odean Smith has been ordinary and the team management may drop him and bring in Rishi Dhawan.

Top Order

Mayank Agarwal and Shikhar Dhawan will open the innings, followed by Liam Livingstone. Dhawan has played a few good innings, while Livingstone has been in destructive form. However, the team will need runs from Mayank Agarwal.

Middle Order

Jonny Bairstow, Jitesh Sharma and Shahrukh Khan will follow the aforementioned batters. All are big hitters and will be responsible for keeping up the run rate in middle and final overs.


Punjab may drop Odean Smith who has been ordinary in the tournament. They may bring in Rishi Dhawan instead.


Kagiso Rabada, Vaibhav Arora, Arshdeep Singh and Rahul Chahar will comprise the bowling attack. Rabada and Chahar need to bring out their A-game against strong Mumbai batting while Arshdeep and Arora will have to play the supporting role and not leak too many runs.

PBKS Key Batters

  • Mayank Agarwal - The skipper was Punjab's most consistent batter last season but hasn't lived up to the expectations yet. He will have to give Punjab a good start.
  • Liam Livingstone - Livingstone has been in ruthless form. In the previous two games, he demolished the bowling attacks and scored fiery half-centuries. He will be keen to make it three in a row.
  • Jonny Bairstow - Bairstow has an average of above 40 in the Indian T20 League and Punjab fans will have a lot of expectations from him.

PBKS Top Batsman Stats

Batter Matches Runs Average Strike Rate 50/100
Mayank Agarwal 104 2177 22.92 134.97 11/51
Liam Livingstone 13 274 22.83 157.47 2/0
Jonny Bairstow 29 1046 40.23 141.73 7/1

PBKS Key Bowlers

  • Kagiso Rabada - Rabada is the wicket-taker in the Punjab team. The team needs him to get early breakthroughs and the pacer has more often than not delivered as well.
  • Rahul Chahar - Chahar will be key for Punjab as we have seen that the spinners are getting some help from the wickets. He will have to control the run flow at the same time picking wickets as well.
  • Arshdeep Singh - Arshdeep Singh has bowled well with little luck. The pacer has been good with the new ball and if he can pick some early wickets, it will be great for Punjab.

PBKS Top Bowlers Stats

Bowlers Matches Wickets Average Economy Best Figures
Kagiso Rabada 53 80 20.57 8.23 4-21
Rahul Chahar 46 50 24.36 7.34 4-27
Arshdeep Singh 27 32 24.25 8.70 5/32
