PBKS vs. MI Dream 11 Match Preview:
Friday night, we can see another great battle between the two strongest teams in the history of IPL, which are none other than Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings. Punjab Kings have faced three consecutive defeats after winning their first game comfortably. Punjab Kings is now at the bottom of the points table with only two points. On the other hand, Mumbai lost their last game against Delhi Capitals and now holds 4th place on the point table with 2 victories out of 4 games.
Though Punjab teams have many great players like Shami, Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, they still look rusty and seem not confident enough to win matches. They have to improve batting bowling and the fielding section to come back in the IPL 2021. KL Rahul is leading the Punjab Kings team, and he will definitely plan better against Mumbai for the Friday night game against Mumbai Indians. This is obviously a crucial match for Punjab Kings to grab the winning points.
Now let’s talk about Mumbai Indians; after playing good cricket, Mumbai Indians lost their last game against Delhi Capitals. Mumbai gave a small target to DC, and DC win that match comfortably in the last match. Surya Kumar Yadav, Rohit Sharma are in great form and definitely two key players for the Mumbai Indians.
Mumbai Indians’ bowling looks impressive, and it’s a great thing for Mumbai Indians. Rohit and his team will definitely come with better preparation against Punjab Kings.
This match can be a high-intensity game, but that’s the beauty of cricket, and we fan always wants to enjoy high-intensity games. When it comes to the head-to-head stats, both teams have played 26 matches against each other, and Mumbai Indians won in 14 games, and Punjab Kings won the rest 12 games. I hope we can witness another great cricket match between MI and PBKS.
