MI vs PBKS Dream11 Today Match Prediction: Mumbai Indians are hanging by a thread and they have to win all their remaining games to stand a chance to qualify for the playoffs. The scenario is not much different for their opponents Punjab Kings who need to win all their remaining games to qualify.
The defending champions Mumbai Indians have been bizarre in this season so far. Their middle order has underperformed terribly and that’s one of the main reasons why they are in this situation right now. The form of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya has been pathetic to say the least.
Punjab Kings dropped Fabian Allen for no reason in the game against SRH but they managed to beat SRH in a cliffhanger of a game. They have front loaded their batting with top 5 being explosive with a good combination of pace and spin hitters but the form of Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran has been a massive concern for them. Nicholas Pooran showed some form against RR but Chris Gayle has bee totally off.
Mumbai Indians might consider bringing in Nathan Coulter-Nile for Adam Mile who was pathetic against RCB. Hardik Pandya looked rusty in the previous game and MI need a lot of things to go in their way to emerge on top.
Mumbai Indians are favorites going into this game. They have a very good team on paper which cannot be denied. They have one of the best pace bowling units in this competition. Trent Boult failed to give new ball wickets against KKR and RCB and it proved to be costly. Though he gave the perfect start against CSK, MI bowlers let the momentum away by bowling trash in death overs.
Ravi Bishnoi will be the danger man for Mumbai Indians. MI need Suryakumar Yadav to bring his “A” game against Punjab spinners for MI to stand a chance.
