MI vs PBKS- Prediction, Who Will Win The Match Between Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings? IPL 2021 Match 42. The 42nd match of IPL 2021 sees Mumbai Indians take on Punjab Kings on Tuesday. Both teams have played against each other once before in IPL 2021. Punjab bowled at good areas and restricted Punjab to just 131 runs in the first innings. Rohit Sharma top-scored for MI, scoring 63 runs off 52 deliveries.
Punjab Kings chased down the score in 17.4 overs, winning the game by 9 wickets. KL Rahul scored an unbeaten 60-run knock off 52 balls, while Chris Gayle remained unbeaten at 43 off 35 balls.
Mumbai India haven’t had a great season for them thus far in the tournament. They struggled at the sluggish tracks on Chepauk. The same happened on the slow tracks in UAE. MI are coming into the game on the back of three consecutive losses.
Currently, they are languishing at the seventh position on the points table with 4 wins in 10 matches. Another defeat from here would potentially ruin their chances of making it to the playoffs.
MI suffered an embarrassing 54-run defeat at the hands of RCB in their last game. Virat Kohli and Srikar Bharat gave the team a great start in the power play. Virat Kohli went on to score a half-century. However, MI seamers led by Jasprit Bumrah pulled it back brilliantly in the death overs to restrict RCB to 165 runs at the end of the first innings.
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock, once again, gave a solid start in the powerplay. However, neither of them went to score big for the side. The biggest worry, however, has been the underperforming middle-order. Low scores from Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya continue to haunt MI.
Mumbai Indians were bundled for just 111 runs in the second innings. The likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard need to come good if MI ought to make a turnaround from here.
Punjab Kings, on the other hand, are coming off a morale-boosting 5-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game. On a rare occasion, both KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal went back to the hut on low scores but Punjab managed to cross the finishing line in the end. Punjab had a forgettable day with the bat as none of the players stepped up in the first innings. Aiden Makram scored 27 off 32 balls, while KL Rahul scored run-a-ball 21. Punjab finished their innings at 125 in the first innings.
Mohammad Shami sent both Warner and Williamson back to the hut in his first two overs to bring his team back into the game. Ravi Bishnoi ran through the middle order as SRH’s Indian contingent in the middle order continued to disappoint its fans. Arshdeep Singh and Harpreet Brar too were pretty economical as Punjab Kings restricted SRH to 120 in the end, winning the game by 5 runs.
Punjab Kings are currently sitting at fifth position and a win on Tuesday could help move up to the upper half of the points table.
