Match and Pitch Conditions
Weather: The weather is expected to be pleasant and no rain is expected during the match.
Pitch Condition: It will be the first match at Mohali Stadium this season. In the last few years, the pitch has been on little slower and full of runs.
Last four first innings IPL score on this ground reads 179, 175, 181, and 189. So, it is still expected to be full of runs. However, in those four matches, three matches were won by the team batting first.
Kings XI Punjab:
- Darren Sammy has joined the squad on Wednesday and he may come in for Marcus Stoinis for his hard hitting ability. However, Sammy’s bowling could be a weak point.
- KXIP are expected to retain the rest of the squad that won the last match
- Yuvraj Singh and Ashish Nehra are fit for this match and Nehra is most probably expected to come in for Bipul Sharma.
- For Yuvraj to come in, one of the batsmen has to sit out. If he comes in, Kane Williamson is the most likely omission.
- If Kane Williamson sits out, either Mohammad Nabi or Ben Cutting could come in depending on the nature of the pitch.
