Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will be taking on each other in the 33rd match of the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024). The PBKS vs MI match is being played at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium, Mullanpur, Chandigarh.

Both teams will be desperate to win the game tonight to bolster their already slim chances of progressing to the playoffs. PBKS and MI are currently languishing in the bottom half of the points table and are in urgent need of wins to turn things around.

With two wins from six games, PBKS are currently at the eighth spot. On the other hand, MI have also won two of their first six games and are languishing at the ninth spot. Another loss tonight will take either of the teams further away from the playoffs spots.

Both teams are coming into this game on the back of defeats. PBKS suffered a three-wicket loss at the hands of Rajasthan Royals in their last game at home. On the other hand, MI suffered a 20-run defeat at the hands of reigning champions Chennai Super Kings in their last outing.

PBKS vs MI: Impact players:

PBKS won the toss and opted to bowl first. Speaking at the toss, PBKS captain Sam Curran said: "We will have a bowl. Keeping up with the trend of the tournament. Shikhar is not well, so that's the only injury and Rilee comes in for Jonny today. It is not nice to lose the close games but we are doing a lot of things right. Taide drops out of the side, just a couple of tactical changes."

MI captain Hardik Pandya said: "We were wanting to bat first as well, so good toss to lose. We don't judge, couple of times we had the game in our grasp and didn't finish the game, IPL tests you, when the game is not over it is not over. We just take it game by game, go out there and give our 100 percent. Every indivdual should commit to the team's goal and once we do that the results will be seen. Same team."
