Indian Premier League, 2019 | Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians PREVIEW

KXIP vs MI Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Mohali, March 30, Saturday at 04:00 PM IST

So, it's time for a double-header in the IPL 2019- Kings XI Punjab will be seen hosting Mumbai Indians at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali in the evening in their first home fixture of the season. Kings XI Punjab is returning after playing two away games in which they have managed one win and have faced one defeat. The clash will begin at 04:00 PM IST.

In the second fixture of Saturday's doubleheader, Delhi Capitals will host Kolkata Knight Riders at the iconic Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi. Delhi faced 6 wickets drubbing at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in the previous encounter at the same venue and will be looking to secure a win against Kolkata Knight Riders.

Punjab returns home after two away games

Kings XI Punjab will be playing their first home game on Saturday and will be looking to start the home-leg with a win. They started their IPL 2019 campaign with 14 runs win over Rajasthan Royals but succumbed to 28 runs drubbing at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders in the second fixture.

Kings XI Punjab was positive in the run chase on the back of timely fifties from Mayank Agarwal (58 of 34) and David Miller (59 of 40) but Andre Russell's 17-ball 48 runs havoc in the first innings came out as the difference between the two sides. They would be looking to move forward and bounce back strongly against Mumbai Indians in Saturday's fixture.

Mumbai secures a win amidst last-ball controversy

The slow-starters of the tournament Mumbai Indians secured their first win of the season after holding their nerve in a high-scoring thriller against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday evening. With 7 runs to defend off the last ball, Mumbai Indians clinched 6 runs win over RCB, courtesy an umpiring error. The last ball of the innings, bowled by Lasith Malinga, was a no-ball but the on-field umpire S Ravi failed to spot it.  The incident has created a furore since then and both the captains were miffed over the mistake.

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians travels all the way to North for their third encounter. The side faced 37 runs defeat at the hands of Delhi Capitals in the opening fixture but looked quite balanced in the second fixture and would be hoping to continue the momentum. Also, MI has a better record at IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali.
