KXIP VS MI Match Prediction

KXIP vs MI Match Prediction: Unlike the previous year, Kings XI Punjab have lost both their opening matches in this year’s Indian Premier League, however, the road ahead hasn’t been as bleak as it looks like, with their top-order being amongst the runs. Barring Lokesh Rahul, players with the likes of Chris Gayle, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, and David Miller all are looking in good touch.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians, registered an emphatic victory over Royals Challengers Bangalore in the last-ball thriller, winning the match by six runs, on Thursday. Jasprit Bumrah and Lasith Malinga bowled brilliant penultimate and ultimate over of the match, to restrict AB De Villiers and De Grandhomme to score 22 runs in the final 12 deliveries.

Here’s look at some of the key players in the match:

  1. Chris Gayle

Except for the last match against KKR, West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle, of late, has been setting the stadium alight in almost every match. The left-hander notched a brilliant 47 ball 79 in the first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, helping his side win that match. The left-hander will hit the ground running once again on Saturday, as the fans would expect him to score a big inning in the game against Mumbai Indians.

  1. Rohit Sharma

Since the home series against Australia, Rohit’s runs with the bat had just dried up. Also, The Mumbai Indian skipper could only score 14 runs in the opening match of the tournament against Delhi Capitals.

The right-hander struck 48 runs off 33 deliveries, before getting out off Umesh in the eleventh over of the innings.

  1. Yuvraj Singh

After so long, the vintage Yuvi has been looking in pristine touch. The left-hander started the tournament with a bang, hitting a well-made 53 off 35 deliveries following by a 12-ball 23 cameo. The Man of the series of 2011 World Cup was on course to replicate the World Cup’s six-sixes-in-an-over spectacle, having hit three sixes in three balls to Chahal, however, failed to hit the fourth ball out of the ground as he was caught on long-off by Siraj. He is certainly one of the key players in the fantasy cricket game.

  1. Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya

Time and again, India’s all-rounder Hardik Pandya has proved why he has been backed so much in the Indian Cricket Team, as their ideal all-rounder in the side.

His unbeaten cameo of 32 runs off 14 balls took the team’s total to 187 for 8 in twenty overs.

  1. Mayank Agarwal
