Punjab Kings Team News

Punjab Kings' were handed a massive blow before the start of play of their previous match with captain Shikhar Dhawan picking up a shoulder injury during training ruling the veteran out for a week.

Three Lions' allrounder Sam Curran will spearhead PBKS against MI as he'll be aiming to get support from his fellow bowlers.

PBKS failed to defend the target after bringing themselves back in the game against RR, but some ordinary bowling from Arshdeep Singh saw Shimron Hetmyer smack him all around the park and snatch all two points.

South African speedster Kagiso Rabada added two more wickets to his kitty against RR taking his total to nine as he continues his hunt for his maiden purple cap.

The experienced pacer has gotten Rohit Sharma's number on multiple occasions in the IPL and in international cricket as he could torment MI's top order once again.

Ashutosh Sharma and Shashank Singh have been the silver lining in an underwhelming PBKS' batting lineup with the former chipping in with another quickfire innings at the death against RR.

Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, failed to chase down a total of 207 despite a century from former captain Rohit Sharma.

The Indian captain thundered an electrifying knock of 105 from just 63 balls, crossing the triple digit mark for just the second time in his IPL journey.

Despite the MI openers providing a scintillating start to their chase, the middle order has has a hot and cold campaign with the likes of Tilak Verma, Hardik Pandya, and Suryakumar Yadav yet to show consistency while batting.

Hardik Pandya has garnered massive attention with the MI captain not living up to the mark with the bat and the ball.

Despite guiding GT to the illustrious title just two seasons ago, Pandya has made some shambolic decisions as a captain especially while making bowling changes which have been the reason for MI's downfall.

Except for Jasprit Bumrah- who held the purple cap before PBKS' clash with RR-none of the bowlers have shown glimpses of promise with the likes of Gerald Coetzee and Akash Madhwal going for a plenty.
