Mumbai Indians (MI) and Punjab Kings (PBKS) will just take on just about every other on Wednesday (April 13) in Match 23 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at Maharashtra Cricket Affiliation Stadium, Pune. The Rohit Sharma-led aspect has obtained off to the worst feasible get started in the ongoing edition, dropping four matches on the trot. The PBKS, on the other hand, unsuccessful to protect 12 off two balls in their previous sport against Gujarat Titans, wherever Rahul Tewatia did a little something out of the box.
The star-studded MI lineup, comprising Rohit, Ishan Kishan, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Kieron Pollard, appeared lacklustre so significantly in IPL 2022. They do not appear to be a champion side anymore, largely thanks to a inadequate bowling unit. The PBKS, on the other hand, have brought out a fearless solution this season, which pays prosperous dividends to them. The Mayank Agarwal-led side has gained two and missing two in the four matches they have performed so considerably.
With so lots of electric power-hitters all-around, the match is envisioned to be a large-scoring one for the viewers.
Even though the MI shed by 7 wickets in their past encounter in opposition to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the PBKS misplaced to Gujarat Titans prior to heading to this fixture.
Head to Head
The two groups have 28 occasions in the earlier. Even though the MI received the battle 15 instances, the PBKS experienced the very last chortle on 13 events.
Mumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Tim David, Fabian Allen, Jaydev Unadkat, Jasprit Bumrah, Basil Thampi.
Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma, Shahrukh Khan, Odean Smith, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Vaibhav Arora, Arshdeep Singh.
Regardless of obtaining little help from the other conclude, Suryakumar, after coming again from an damage, appeared to be in chic touch in their previous two matches. He smacked 36-ball 52 on his return towards Kolkata Knight Riders and followed it up with a 37-ball 68 against Royal Challengers Bangalore, but sad to say, none of them finished up in a successful cause.
So, our best bet is to retain religion in the MI’s star center-buy batter, who, of course, is in good form.
The MI is aware of getting rid of versus the PBKS will not assistance them to keep on being in the contention for a location in the Playoffs. So, our prediction is in favour of Rohit Sharma and Co.
