Today match prediction for PBKS vs MI IPL 2021 Match 17, Dream11 Team Prediction, 23 April

Share

PBKS vs MI IPL today match prediction: Punjab have started their campaign in exactly the same way they started in 2020. A string of losses in the initial half of the tournament derailed their campaign last time around and they are going down the same path this time as well.

They have had 2 freak collapses in 4 games and in the game against DC, KL Rahul played way too conservatively to cost his team 2 points.

Mumbai Indians could have won 4 in 4 and at the same time they could have been winless to date. Such is the story od their campaign so far. They have underperformed in the first leg and there are no questions about it and they would want to finish the Chennai leg on a high.

PBKS vs MI today IPL match prediction

Punjab Kings

+ They have strengthened their batting order by adding Fabian Allen at 8 and it should give enough license for KL Rahul to go berserk at the top

+ Deepak Hooda has been in really fine form and his intent in the middle order is refreshing after watching KL Rahul at the top.

– Moises Henriques in an IPL team reduces the standard of IPL let alone Punjab.

– Nicholas Pooran has had a terrible season so far but this Chennai wicket should favor him to the fullest.

Mumbai Indians

+ Rohit Sharma has been the lone warrior for Mumbai Indians with Quinton de Kock and Ishan Kishan not in the best of the form in the top order with Hardik Pandya poor in lower middle order.

+ Mumbai bowlers are giving excellent control to Rohit Sharma that allows him to hold back 2 overs of Bumrah in the last 5 overs.

– Suryakumar Yadav has to convert his mind-boggling starts.

– Trent Boult has been ineffective by his standards with the new ball.

PBKS playing 11 (Likely)

KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Shahrukh Khan, Fabian Allen, Jhye Richardson, Ravi Bishnoi/Murugan Ashwin, Mohammad Shami, Arshdeep Singh

MI playing 11 (Likely)
