Kings XI Punjab

Manan Vohra has impressed everyone this season. He is striking the ball well and played an important knock against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last match. Skipper Glenn Maxwell is also looking good. He has had two good hits this season – both coming in matches in Indore. The team's bowling is an area of concern and Maxwell has to use the best options within the limits.

Mumbai Indians

The team will be aiming to extend their winning streak. Its looking positive with both batting and bowling in full swing. Nitish Raina is doing well. Butler, Pollard and Captain Rohit Sharma himself will provide strength in middle overs. Bumrah and Malinga are two of the most difficult bowlers to face in last overs and team would like to capitalise it.
