MI vs PBKS: Mumbai Indians (MI) Predicted Playing XI Against Punjab Kings (PBKS)- IPL 2021 Match 42. The defending champions, Mumbai Indians are unlikely to defend the title in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League as they are currently languishing at the seventh position on the points table. They have made the worst possible start to the UAE leg of IPL 2021, having lost three games in a row.
In 10 matches, Mumbai Indians have only managed to secure 4 wins. Another defeat in their next game could dash all their hopes of reaching the playoffs. Poor run from the middle-order continues to haunt them. In pursuit of a 165-run total in their last game against RCB, Rohit Sharma and Co. were bowled out for just 111 runs. Ahead of an important game against Punjab Kings, here’s a look at our predicted playing XI of Mumbai Indians.
MI vs PBKS: Mumbai Indians (MI) Predicted Playing XI Against Punjab Kings (PBKS)- IPL 2021 Match 42
Openers: Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock
Both Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are in solid form with the bat. They have been getting valuable starts but failing to convert those into big scores. Rohit Sharma scored 43 runs off just 28 deliveries in the last game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, while Quinton de Kock scored 24 off 23 deliveries. With the middle order not in the best of form, Rohit and Quinton need to take responsibility on their shoulders and play big knocks on Tuesday.
