Team News

Kings XI Punjab:

  • KXIP has lost three matches on the trot after winning the opening two matches. They might look to make some changes in batting lineup as it hasn’t been firing together.
  • They have a lot of quality overseas batsmen in Hashim Amla, David Miller, Martin Guptill, Eoin Morgan, David Miller and Marcus Stoinis as well as their captain Glenn Maxwell. So, they have to choose 3 out of 6 overseas players mentioned.
  • KXIP might think of bringing in Martin Guptill and Shaun Marsh in place of Hashim Amla (1 fifty in 5 matches) and David Miller.
  • Indians bowlers are doing their job well and they might want to stick to them.

Mumbai Indians:

  • Mumbai would not want to tinker with their lineup that has won four matches on the trot.
  • However, they have won all 4 matches while batting 2nd (winning all four tosses and opting to bowl) and lost the one in which they batted first. So, they are yet to be tested while batting 1st.
