The IPL 2021 has begun with an exciting battle between the top international players. This year, the World Cup is scheduled to take place in India and the teams of different countries will depend on the player’s form in the IPL. From Australia, Glenn Maxwell has been impressive, while Shikhar Dhawan has been a top performer from India. There have been reports about Ab De Villiers also playing for South Africa in the T20 World Cup. In this article, we discuss match 17 of IPL 2021 between Punjab Kings and Delhi Capitals.
The Mumbai Indians team has not been able to score enough runs in their last 3 league matches. In today’s match against Punjab Kings, they got off to a bad start with Ishan Kishan and De Kock getting out for a low score. But captain Rohit Sharma played good innings of 63 off 52 balls to help the team in posting a score of 131 on the board. The Pandya brothers are not in form and have not able to contribute effectively and give a finishing touch in the death overs. Krunal Pandya got out to Mohammad Shami in the last over while playing a lofted shoot at the deep point. It was a brilliant take by Nicholas Pooran to make sure that MI does not get enough runs in the death overs.

After getting a total of 132 to chase down against Mumbai Indians, Punjab Kings have their most experienced batsmen, KL Rahul and Chris Gayle at the crease. Then, Pooran and Henriques will follow and Deepak Hooda and Shahrukh Khan are already in terrific form. But, MI bowlers like Boult and Bumrah can turn the momentum at their side at any point in time.
