In one of the most-awaited clashes of VIVO IPL 2021, two-time champions Punjab Kings will take on five-time winners Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Mumbai. The high-intensity IPL 2021 PBKS vs MI match will begin at 7.30 PM IST. Mumbai Indians would be aiming to address their batting woes to achieve consistency while Punjab Kings would be desperate to arrest their overall slide when the two sides clash in an IPL match no. 17.
The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai crashed to defeat against Delhi Capitals following an inept batting performance and will look for redemption. The skipper shone with the bat, but others could not get going and the misfiring middle-order would be a major concern for the side.
The MI bowlers have more often than not risen to the occasion and won matches for the team. It is still early days in this year’s IPL but Mumbai Indians would like its players to find form and consistency and a match against an under-performing Punjab could well be the beginning.
Punjab have flattered to deceive after a winning start. Being shot out for 120 by Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday hinted at bigger problems for the KL Rahul-led team, which has more than one issue to resolve, especially its composition.
The formidable batting unit hasn’t hit the straps, save for Rahul and Mayank Agarwal and the bowling has been pedestrian.
