MI v PBKS, 42nd IPL Match Preview:

Mumbai Indians have now lost 3 out of 3 matches in the second leg of the IPL 2021. The blame for this defeat can be imposed on the failure of the middle order. Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have failed to fire till now and these two need to get back in the form if the defending champions have to qualify for the playoffs.


MI bowling attack has been more or less efficient this season. Bumrah looks in good touch while Boult & Milne have also shown a good approach. Rahul Chahar will become increasingly more effective once the pitches get old in UAE.

Punjab Kings have a problem identical to MI - their middle order has not yet started scoring runs. PBKS batting heavily relies on the openers - skipper KL Rahul & Mayank Agarwal. Punjab needs to solve their middle-order issues soon so that they can get to winnings ways.

Punjab Kings bowling led by Arshdeep Singh and Mohammad Shami looks good enough. They have able spinners in the form of Harpreet Brar and Ravi Bishnoi who can provide wickets at important times.
