Match Prediction

I am giving it a 60-40 in favor of Mumbai. Both Mumbai and Punjab are coming back after a loss in their previous match. Mumbai hasn't been consistent enough with the bat while Punjab's batting has been their major strength so far in this tournament. This will be a battle between inconsistent MI batting vs in form Punjab batting.

Player to Watch Out : Rohit Sharma

Despite coming back after a Super over loss against Bangalore, Mumbai have some positives to take from previous match. Ishan Kishan played a brilliant innings of 99 and nearly won the game. Pollard scored runs in crucial situation. I have been terribly disappointed with someone like Quinton de Kock at the top. de Kock needs

Punjab has been playing good game of cricket so far. KXIP was blown away by Rahul Tewatia's sixes in their last match against Rajasthan but apart from that Punjab's batting has been in top form. I personally feel that the result of this match will be crucial as four top teams are on 4 points and bottom 4 teams are on 2 points each. There isn't much difference as far as the points difference is concerned and the team with momentum can go to top irrespective of their current position in the points table.
