In the 24th fixture of Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians will be welcoming King Xi Punjab to their home ground for an exciting encounter. This clash is scheduled to be played at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The stadium would be jam-packed with blue colours all around, and this could hamper the morale of Kings XI Punjab.
All the Mumbai Indians fans would want their team to take the revenge of the 9th fixture of this tournament, where Mumbai Indians gave KXIP a decent target of 176 runs, but Kings didn’t fear about anything and quickly reached their destination with eight wickets in hand. This is just like any other derby.
