How do the teams stack up?

Mumbai Indians

The opening partnership of Suryakumar Yadav and Evin Lewis has clicked for Mumbai. However, middle order falters with Rohit Sharma’s inconsistency. JP Duminy is yet to prove himself as he hasn’t been given any chance with the bat and ball. Mumbai Indians’ bowling was deplorable against Rajasthan as they conceded a lot of runs. There is a possibility of Mumbai Indians bringing in Adam Milne to strengthen their bowling unit. The rest of the MI squad is likely to be the same.

Kings XI Punjab

Kings XI Punjab boasted of having a strong batting lineup; yet, their batting was miserable against Bangalore. Chris Gayle’s form is a reason of concern for the Punjab squad. The team will work on improving the middle order performance. Yuvaraj Singh could come in place of Mayank Agarwal who has failed despite getting many chances. Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin should shoulder his responsibility with both the bat and ball. If fit, Mujeeb ur Rahman could come into the squad.
