Mumbai Indians look to continue winning run against Kings XI Punjab

Share

In today's Indian Premier League match, Glenn Maxwell's Kings XI Punjab meets Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians at Holkar Stadium.

Contrary, Mumbai started on a patchy note has gathered momentum and the team has synched well and registered fascinating four win - Gujarat Lions by 6 wickets, Royal Challengers Bangalore by 4 wickets, Sunrisers Hyderabad by 4 wickets and Kolkata Knight Riders by 4 wickets - in their last four games. Also the Indore pitch has favoured the team batting second as all four matches played here were won by the chasing side.

The only ray of hope as far as Punjab are concerned, and even that came to the fore only in the last game, has been the resurgence of the 23-year-old Manan Vohra, who nearly won them the game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad single-handedly.

Amarinder Singh remained adamant on not meeting Sajjan despite the Canadian minister proposing a meeting. The Canadian Defence Minister is a Sikh whose native village of Bambeli falls in Hoshiarpur district.

Mumbai Indians: The two-time champions are unlikely to make any changes to their starting XI. Much will depend upon the likes of Hashim Amla, Glenn Maxwell and David Miller. Marcus Stoinis is an all-rounder for this squad and he is probably going to play today.

Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma are the pick of the bowlers for the team.

Punjab also lacks a spinner partner for Axar Patel who bowls well but fails as the runs keep flowing from the other end. Both of them can balance the initial innings for the MI team as Jos is a hard hitter and Parthiv needs to support him by striking the right combination.

Meanwhile, skipper Rohit Sharma may not open for his side as he feels that his experience is needed in the middle order. Rohit is a talented player capable enough of leading his team as a skipper and player both. The match will be played at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.

The Pandya brothers - Hardik and Krunal - have been no less impactful as well, with Hardik getting quick runs lower down the order and Krunal being the partnership breaker.

Pacer Mitchell McClenaghan led Mumbai's bowling attack, claiming two big wickets in the shape of March and Marcus Stoinis (1).
