KXIP vs MI Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Mumbai Indians will look to bounce back from their super-over defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore when they take on Kings XI Punjab in the 2020 Indian Premier League. The match, at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi, takes place on October 1 and gets underway at 19:30 local time.

Ishan Kishan hit 99 from 58 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore but fell with two balls to spare as Mumbai hit 201/5 in reply to 201/3. RCB won on the super over, to leave Mumbai with just one win to their name so far in this year’s title defence despite some good batting form.

Kings XI Punjab have also lost on a super over so far in this tournament, but bounced back from that initial loss to Delhi Capitals by thrashing Royal Challengers Bangalore. In-form Mayank Agarwal then plundered 106 from 50 balls against Rajasthan Royals last time out, only for them to fail to defend 223/2 in a four-wicket defeat.

Kings XI Punjab Team News & Playing 11

KXIP Team News

Sheldon Cottrell’s expensive bowling last time out could mean a return for Chris Jordan, who himself was dropped after leaking runs in the opening game.

KXIP Key Players

  • KL Rahul: Hit an unbeaten century when these teams last met and has scored 132* and 69 in his last two innings in IPL 2020.
  • Mayank Agarwal: Smashed 106 last time out to follow up scores of 89 and 26 in his two previous innings.
  • Mohammed Shami: Expensive last time out but he did claim three wickets and now has seven in three games so far in this year’s tournament.

KXIP Team Form

Mayank Agarwal’s excellent batting has now twice gone unrewarded. He hit 89 from 60 balls to lead a recovery against Delhi Capitals only to fall two balls short and, after the resultant tie, for Kings XI to lose in the super over. KL Rahul starred with the bat in a dominant win against Royal Challengers Bangalore next up, but Agarwal’s century, in a total of 223/2 last time out, could still not prevent a four-wicket loss to Rajasthan Royals.

Mumbai Indians Team News & Playing 11

MI Team News

Kieron Pollard could move up the batting order after some big hitting down the order for Mumbai last time out came just to late to salvage a win. James Pattinson was expensive with the ball and Mumbai must decide whether they can afford to use two of their overseas places on opening bowlers. While they do, it leaves Chris Lynn waiting in the wings.

MI Key Players

  • Kieron Pollard: Starred when these teams last met and, after showing some fine form in the Caribbean Premier League, has picked up where he left off this season too.
  • Ishan Kishan: Came into the team last time out and nearly made himself a hero straight away when he thumped 99 from 58 balls. He was caught attempting the match-winning six off the penultimate ball.
  • Jasprit Bumrah: Unusually expensive in two of the three matches so far, if he can get back to his best then so will Mumbai.

MI Team Form

Mumbai have won just once so far, with that victory bookended by an opening defeat to Chennai Super Kings and the super-over loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore last time out. The one win was an eye-catching one though, as Rohit Sharma hut 80 in a 49-run victory against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Kings XI comfortably chased 177 in the first meeting, with eight balls to spare, but KL Rahul’s unbeaten century proved in vain in the second as, despite posting 197/4, they lost by three wickets off the final ball. Kieron Pollard’s phenomenal 83 from 31 balls made the difference, despite Mohammed Shami taking 3-21.

KXIP vs MI Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper(s)

    Lokesh Rahul has hit top batting form already, having starred in this fixture before too, and he costs 10.5 credits. He is expensive but well worth picking up at that price. Ishan Kishan is 8.5 credits and, after his batting last time out, could also be worth backing. Quinton de Kock and Nicholas Pooran may be too expensive for their current form and inhibit options elsewhere.

  • Batsmen

    Rohit Sharma is the key man for Mumbai Indians and hard to ignore, even at 10.5 credits, while Mayank Agarwal’s form demands selection at 9.5 credits. Suryakumar Yadav has not yet hit his best, but he is key at nine credits.

  • All-rounder(s)

    Glenn Maxwell is nine credits and worth persisting with – if he hits top form, he will be an explosively key player. Hardik Pandya at 9.5 credits might be a gamble too far, however, especially as you can select Kieron Pollard at just nine credits. 

  • Bowlers

    With seven wickets to his name so far, Mohammed Shami is the top bowling pick at nine credits. India team-mate Jasprit Bumrah is yet to hit his best form at the same price, but Trent Boult has led the way for Mumbai and is good value at 8.5 credits. Speaking of good value, you can also select two of Ravi Bishnoi, Murugan Ashwin, Rahul Chahar and James Pattinson at eight credits – all four are capable of big contributions and Bishnoi and Pattinson have already played starring roles for their respective teams so far.

  • Captain/vice-captain

    Their team might be outsiders, but Mayank Agarwal and Lokesh Rahul are in fine run-scoring form and Mohammed Shami is ticking over well with the ball. All three are key players and potential captain or vice-captain picks, but Rahul’s keeping could give him the edge, with Shami as vice-captain.

KXIP vs MI Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Mayank Agarwal, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav

  • All Rounder:Glenn Maxwell, Kieron Pollard

  • Wicket Keeper:Lokesh Rahul (c)

  • Bowler:Mohammed Shami (vc), Trent Boult, Ravi Bishnoi, James Pattinson
