In a high-scoring game earlier in Mumbai, it was Punjab who won the reverse fixture so this game gives the visitors a chance to redeem and take revenge. It might not be easy as they continue to search for consistency. Our pick is in the 6s market with the hosts primed to take advantage. I am backing Punjab Kings to score the most 6s against Mumbai Indians.

  • Punjab Kings have scored the most 6s in 5 of their last 7 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have conceded the most 6s in their last 3 matches (IPL)
  • Punjab Kings have scored the most powerplay runs in 5 of their last 8 matches (IPL)
  • Mumbai Indians have won 4 of their last 5 matches against Punjab Kings at this venue (IPL)

Head to Head


These sides have met each other in 30 matches winning and losing 15 each. When they earlier met in the season at the Wankhede Stadium, it was the Punjab Kings who won by 13 runs.

It was a counter-attack led by Sam Curran’s 55 that gave Punjab a fighting total of 214, which they defended easily as Arshdeep Singh finished with four wickets.

Punjab Kings Form


Punjab Kings are stuck in the mid-table at 6th with 10 points from nine matches. They are coming off a thrilling four-wicket win over Chennai Super Kings, making it two wins out of three.

The return of Shikhar Dhawan augurs well for Punjab as he remains their best scorer (262) although the middle-order has been inconsistent. Arshdeep Singh (15) continues to be their best bowler although the form of Kagiso Rabada is a worry.

It is with the team composition that the Kings have struggled this season with the middle-order batters and back-up bowlers not standing up.

Punjab Kings Team News


Harpreet Brar could be taken out of the playing XI to accommodate a fast bowler, with Gurnoor Brar likely to step in.

Mumbai Indians Form


Mumbai Indians 7th in the table with eight points from eight matches and have a game in hand against most teams around them. They are coming off a stunning six-wicket win over Rajasthan Royals in the 1,000th IPL match on Sunday.

That victory halted a two-game losing streak as Mumbai look to step up the gas. Four batters aggregate 200+ runs for them although only Piyush Chawla (13) has taken more than eight wickets.

The return to form of Suryakumar Yadav bodes well although Rohit Sharma’s poor returns plus the bowling inconsistencies are a major worry.

Mumbai Indians Team News


Chris Jordan has been signed as a replacement player, and may feature against his old franchise.

Verdict

Both Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians have been guilty of being inconsistent and that explains why they are in the mid-table fighting to move up into the top-four. Home comforts haven’t really worked for Punjab who lost their last three matches here but this being their last home game of the season, they could be up for the battle. Yet, our pick is in the sixes market. I am backing Punjab Kings to score the most 6s of this match against the Mumbai Indians.
