PJB vs MUM MPL Team: The Match 13 of the Dream 11 Indian Premier League 2020 will witness Kings XI Punjab lock horns against Mumbai Indians. Both the teams are coming into this game after playing a thriller match against their opposition. The Punjab team lost to Rajasthan Royals in their last game. Although, they put up a quite high total on the scoreboard, the bowlers could not help the team and ultimately lost giving away too many runs in the death overs. The century from Mayank and the contribution from Rahul will surely boost the team for the upcoming matches. Pooran and Maxwell joined the party for the first time in the season and will look to maintain the same form for rest of the tournament. The bowlers, who looked fine in the initial two matches faltered in the short boundary ground.
On the other side, the Mumbai Indians side made a terrific comeback against the Bangalore side to play the super over. But, in the end, the Bangalore team pulled off a win quite easily in a 1 over affair. The main contributions for the MI team were from Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard who played out of their skin trying to chase a mammoth total on the board. The main wicket-taker was Trent Boult who for the first time was impressive in the death overs and would like to take confidence into the upcoming matches. It will be interesting to see which team comes over the top in the KXIP vs MI MPL prediction.

Here is the probable XI for the PJB vs MUM MPL fantasy cricket tips.
PJB Playing XI (predicted)
KL Rahul (c & wk)
Nicholas Pooran/Chris Gayle
Sheldon Cottrell/ Chris Jordan
MUM Playing XI (predicted)
Rohit Sharma (c)
Quinton de Kock (wk)
R Sharma- No words could be enough to describe this pick and choice of selection as a captain. Rohit might not have been to his extreme best, as the International circuit, but he can't be left out of the team. He has scored 4998 runs in the 191 games, he has played in the IPL. That's a massive number and he'll surely out pass the 5000 mark in this match. Rohit will open for the team and can be a very valuable pick, keeping in mind his legacy in the limited format!
L Rahul- One of the best batsmen in the country right now, he has maintained his same form of the previous edition of IPL and will look to continue in the same fashion. KL has scored 2199 runs in just 70 matches he has played over the years. In the last match, he scored a half-century to boost the team total past 200 and he surely has to be your captain choice in the KXIP vs MI today match prediction.
M Agarwal- A consistent Indian batsman who has been quite impressive in the IPL over the years. His excellent consistency in the domestic circuit also helped him to get an India Cap and has been phenomenal for the country too. In the game against Delhi Capitals, he scored 80 off 59 balls to set the stage for the team to cross the line. In the last match, he scored a century and would like to maintain the same form to get the team a much-needed win under their kitty. Surely, he can be one of the best vice-captains picks for your fantasy team.
S Yadav: In 2019, he was the second-highest run-scorer for the Mumbai Indians. In 2018, he scored over 500 runs. The middle-order hopes the most from SKY, as he is capable of doing wonders for the team. He has excellent batting skills and the finest technique as a batsman. In 88 IPL matches, he has scored 1612 runs. Yadav is a reliable player for the team and can be made as a vice-captain.
I Kishan- A tremendous wicketkeeper-batsman who can be an X-factor for your fantasy team. In 38 matches, he has scored 794 runs in the IPL over the years. In his first match this year, he scored 99 and nearly managed to secure a thrilling win for the Mumbai. Looking at his overall track record for the MI team, he can be an important pick for your fantasy team to have an edge over the others.
R Bishnoi- A Young spinner who has shown commendable accuracy and has kept churning out wickets in a consistent manner. In 3 matches, he has picked 4 wickets and is on a way to grab more given his good form. Although, he could not quite take wickets in a short boundary ground, but can be a choice for your X-factor pick who can fetch good points by taking 1-2 wickets.
