Kings XI Punjab will host Mumbai Indians in the match 21 of the Indian Premier League 2016. The latest Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians betting tips for this IPL encounter can be checked below.
Mumbai Indians are the only side in the league right now who are leading in terms of the matches played. With six games in, their campaign so far hasn’t been particularly thriving, with four losses and only two wins. Sitting at the sixth place in the table, their hopes of repeating last year’s feat aren’t looking good.
They played Delhi Daredevils most recently, where they lost the game by 10 runs. Chasing a target of 165 runs, Rohit Sharma & co. could only make it to 154 runs, with their captain being the sole person to play a good innings, yet again. Even in the bowling, Mitchell McClenaghan is the only seamer who has been fairly successful.
In this regard, Kings XI Punjab aren’t too behind either. In five matches so far, they have been able to win only one, while losing the remaining four. As a result, they are at the bottom place on the league table.
On Saturday, they visited Sunrisers Hyderabad, where they batted first and managed to score only 143 runs on a batting pitch. Capitalizing on this, David Warner took Sunrisers to a five wicket victory in 18 overs.
Murali Vijay failed to produce his previous feats in the tournament, as he was bowled out in single digit. Shaun Marsh tried to put up a fight, but could go as far as 40 runs. Even in bowling, Glen Maxwell and Kyle Abott haven’t been impressive.
Mumbai Indians too are in a similar rut as their opponents, but being the away side here may be a bit tricky for them. This is surely going to be an intriguing one to watch.
