IPL 2021 – Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings – 42nd Match Prediction

The Mumbai Indians are second from the bottom of the IPL 2021 standings, which is not where you would expect one of the most successful T20 teams in history to be. Mumbai Indians have lost all three of their games in the second half of the IPL 2021, putting them in a must-win position.

They will face the Punjab Kings, another struggling club that has won its last encounter. However, it has also lost two of its previous three matches since restart.

With only four matches remaining, every outcome is critical, and neither of these teams has any room for error. On September 28, 2021, the match will be held at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings Team Previews

Mumbai Indians (Match Odds – 1.67)

In their last encounter against RCB, the Mumbai Indians experienced a total batting collapse. They moved from 57 for no loss on the powerplay to 111 for the entire game. The only players to get a start were Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock, as the rest of the batters failed to reach double digits.

The inconsistency of Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Kieron Pollard, and Krunal Pandya is a major source of concern. In addition, Hardik Pandya is rusty after being out of the team for so long.

The dilemma for bettors here is whether to stick with the club or bet on them maintaining their dismal run. We believe the relocation to Abu Dhabi will benefit the Mumbai Indians. The preceding match was a high-scoring battle between KKR and CSK.

The Mumbai Indians have a solid core of players, and we don’t expect them to make any changes to their batting order just yet. Mumbai Indians’ bowling effort was superior in the previous encounter.

Trent Boult and Jasprit Bumrah were outstanding in the end. Adam Milne has also been excellent. The spinners’ performances, Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya, have also been subpar.

Mumbai Indians Squad

Rohit Sharma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult, Piyush Chawla, Dhawal Kulkarni, Saurabh Tiwary, Aditya Tare, Chris Lynn, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jayant Yadav, Roosh Kalaria, James Neesham, Anmolpreet Singh, Anukul Roy, Arjun Tendulkar, Marco Jansen, Yudhvir Singh

Predicted XI: Quinton De Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Adam Milne, Rahul Chahar, Trent Boult, and Jasprit Bumrah

Punjab Kings (Match Odds – 2.20)

So far, the Punjab Kings have played three matches, two of which have been very tight contests. The first was a match in which they lost from a winning position, while the most recent was a match in which they won from a losing position.

When it comes to selection, PBKS has taken some daring choices, and we believe it is currently on the right track. Ravi Bishnoi is a good addition to the team, Chris Gayle provides strength to the batting, and Nathan Ellis can bowl well in the death overs.

However, there is no question that the Punjab Kings are currently suffering with their batting. Mayank Aggarwal and KL Rahul are in terrific form, but that’s all there is to it.

The bowling lineup, on the other hand, is better than you may think. On spin-friendly surfaces, Harpreet Brar, Ravi Bishnoi, and Arshdeep Singh will be difficult to face. Shami will be the designated powerplay bowler, with Ellis taking over in the powerplay.

Punjab Kings Squad

KL Rahul (wk/c), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Harpreet Brar, Nathan Ellis, Mohammed Shami, Ravi Bishnoi, Arshdeep Singh, Moises Henriques, Adil Rashid, Mandeep Singh, Chris Jordan, Jalaj Saxena, Murugan Ashwin, Sarfaraz Khan, Fabian Allen, Shahrukh Khan, Saurabh Kumar, Ishan Porel, Utkarsh Singh, Darshan Nalkande, Prabhsimran Singh

Predicted XI: KL Rahul (c/wk), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Harpreet Brar, Nathan Ellis, Ravi Bishnoi, Mohammed Shami, and Arshdeep Singh

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The last match’s conditions were favorable for batting, and we are looking for the same this time. The ball came off the bat much better, and players were able to play through the line much more effectively. Even if the pitch slows down somewhat, a score of 150-160 should be much within reach.

Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings Match Prediction

We’re going to put our money on the Mumbai Indians’ experience and class. They’ve been in a similar predicament before and have always managed to turn things around. We’re aiming for the same against an inexperienced Punjab Kings team.

Mumbai Indians is the favorites to beat Punjab Kings at the odds of 1.67.

  • Both teams have performed poorly in the second leg of the IPL 2021.
  • On paper, the Punjab Kings has a weaker batting lineup.
  • The Mumbai Indians boast a world-class bowling team as well as a batting lineup with a lot of promise.
