Mumbai Indians (Match Odds – 1.78):


Mumbai Indians defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in their most recent match, and they previously defeated Kolkata Knight Riders. Mumbai Indians’ bowling unit is not much stronger for this tournament, which is why they struggled in almost every match this tournament. They lack experienced bowlers in their squad.

Mumbai Indians’ leading bowlers are Arjun Tendulkar, Cameron Green, Duan Jansen, Piyush Chawla, Hrithik Shokeen, and Riley Meredith, and they did not perform in their most recent match against Kolkata Knight Riders, allowing 185 runs in 20 overs. Hrithik Shokeen was the highest wicket-taker for their team, with two wickets in four overs against 34 runs.

Piyush Chawla was their most economical bowler, taking one wicket in four overs while allowing only 19 runs. Cameron Green also took one wicket and allowed 20 runs in two overs. Duan Jansen was the other bowler with a wicket, but he gave up a lot of runs. He was given a total of 53 runs in four overs.

Riley Meredith took one wicket in four overs, allowing 41 runs. After three years of waiting, Arjun Tendulkar was finally given a chance to play for the Mumbai Indians. Remember that he had been a member of the Mumbai Indians franchise for the previous three seasons, and this was his first time playing for his team. He was given two overs to bowl and leaked 17 runs while failing to pick up a wicket. The Mumbai Indians’ batting order has improved, which is great news for the team’s fans.

Full Squad:

Rohit Sharma (c), Tim David, Ramandeep Singh, Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Tristan Stubbs, Dewald Brevis, Jofra Archer, Arjun Tendulkar, Arshad Khan, Kumar Kartikeya, Hrithik Shokeen, Jason Behrendorff, Akash Madhwal, Cameron Green, Piyush Chawla, Duan Jansen, Vishnu Vinod, Shams Mulani, Nehal Wadhera, Raghav Goyal

Players to watch out for:

Cameron Green

After scoring an impressive half-century in the previous game, Green will be motivated to keep it up.

Tilak Varma

When given the chance, this southpaw has been extremely productive. He scored 37 runs off 17 balls, hitting four maximums and two boundaries, assisting MI to a quality finish.

Riley Meredith

He took two wickets in the previous game and was a worthy impact substitute. Riley’s main concern in the upcoming games will be to keep his economy rate under control.

Possible Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Ashton Agar, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood

Punjab Kings (Match Odds – 2.15):


Punjab Kings were defeated by Royal Challengers Bangalore in their most recent match, and before that, they defeated the tournament’s strongest team, Lucknow Super Giants. This team’s bowling unit is strong, and they have more options for using bowlers as needed. Their most recent match against the Lucknow Super Giants, in which they used seven bowlers, is a prime example of this.

This team’s bowling unit is led by Matthew Short, who is joined by Arshdeep Singh, Kagiso Rabada, Sam Curran, Harpreet Brar, Sikandar Raza, and Rahul Chahar. These bowlers all performed admirably in their most recent match, allowing only 159 runs in 20 overs.

The captain, Sam Curran, was their most successful and highest run-scorer, taking three wickets in four overs against 31 runs. Kagiso Rabada was the other bowler who performed admirably with the ball. He took two wickets in four overs while allowing 34 runs. Arshdeep Singh had not been performing well in previous matches, but he did well in the most recent match, picking up one wicket in three overs against 22 runs.

Harpreet Brar and Sikandar Raza also played well in the previous match, each taking one wicket. Sikandar Raza became the first Zimbabwean player to win the Indian Premier League match of the match award. Punjab Kings’ batting order is also strong, but we don’t think they performed well in their previous match, when they chased a low target of 160 runs in 19.3 overs. Atharva Taide and Prabhsimran Singh open the Punjab Kings batting inning but fail to provide a good opening start, and both opening batsmen return to the pavilion with just 17 runs.

The middle order of this team is led by Matthew Short, Harpreet Singh Bhatia, and Sikandar Raza, and all batsmen performed admirably. In the lower batting order, Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma, and Shahrukh Khan all struggled. Sikandar Raza was their most successful and highest run-scorer, scoring 57 runs on 41 balls with four boundaries and three massive sixes.

Full Squad:

Shikhar Dhawan (c), Shahrukh Khan, Matthew Short, Prabhsimran Singh, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Jitesh Sharma, Raj Bawa, Rishi Dhawan, Liam Livingstone, Atharva Taide, Arshdeep Singh, Baltej Singh, Nathan Ellis, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Harpreet Brar, Sam Curran, Sikandar Raza, Harpreet Bhatia, Vidwath Kaverappa, Mohit Rathee, Shivam Singh

Players to watch out for:

Sam Curran

Curran must lead the Kings by doing wonders with the ball in order to justify his price tag in the 2023 edition. He did not take any wickets in the previous game, but he bowled an economical spell of 6.75 runs per over.

Prabhsimran Singh

In the 2023 edition, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations by counter-attacking every bowling lineup he has faced thus far. Despite coming off an impressive 46-run innings, Prabhsimran will be asked to stay longer on the crease.

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh will be fighting for a spot in India’s World Cup squad this year. In the IPL 2023, he has taken 9 wickets.

Possible Playing XI:

Andrew Balbirnie (c), Paul Stirling, Lorcan Tucker (wk), Harry Tector, George Dockrell, Curtis Campher, Gareth Delany, Mark Adair, Fionn Hand, Barry McCarthy, Joshua Little
