IPL Match Prediction
IPL 2017 Match Prediction : Kings XI Punjab take on the Mumbai Indians

First Innings Score

In both the matches that Kings XI Punjab has played at Indore IPL 2017, they’ve had no trouble reaching 150+. They’ll again look to put runs on the board and cross the 160 run mark against a very strong MI’s batting unit.

The onus is on foreign players to come good

The tournament began on a terrific note for Punjab with 2 wins in 2 matches but has since left them with a rather confused state of whether they can be the favorites to win IPL 2017 or not. The heavy dependence upon the shoulders on Maxwell is clearly reflecting as the 2 foreign inclusions in Miller & Morgan hasn’t stepped up yet to take the onus of winning matches for Punjab – something that cost them their last game against SRH.

Vohra at top gives hope to Punjab’s pool of local talent

The Punjab dug-out will know that they’ve plenty of hopefuls to fire in order to regain the winning momentum. The form of Vohra for instance (magnificent 95 against SRH) proves that if youngsters in Punjab unit are empowered to go out into the middle and play their natural game – the results can come their way.

Mumbai Indians

Today’s Prediction Of First Innings Score

The Mumbai Indians has one of the strongest middle orders amongst teams in IPL 2017. The rise of youngsters and local talent in Rana & Pandya brothers gives them immense hope of putting big runs on the board and they’ll look to make 160+ at Indore if they bat first.

A different start to Mumbai’s IPL campaign

Mumbai has had a rather different start to IPL 2017 as opposed to the start in the early stages of the tournament that they’ve been used to since the last couple of years i.e. they often start as a side that is understanding the perfect XI to play and in the run lose a few matches but strike really hard in the latter half of the IPL and manage to get into top 4 but this year, they’ve been rolling early in the tournament and find themselves at the 2nd spot in the points table, trailing KKR at 1st.

MI look strong and formidable

The Mumbai Indians captain is backfiring, as we predicted he would in our last match prediction for MI here. Sharma made 40* which got his side to the finishing line – beating Gujarat Lions by 6 wickets with 3 balls to spare, chasing 177. Mumbai Indians have a terrific set of players in Rohit Sharma, Buttler, Pollard, Malinga and the lethal Pandya Brothers – beating them, won’t come easy.

Today’s Match Winning Team Prediction

The match will be played at Indore – which is a neutral venue. Kings XI Punjab is unbeaten this season at Indore (their perceived home-ground), beating RPS and RCB respectively. Ideally, they should be more aware of the ground and it’s surface – which gives them an added advantage and they start therefore as favorites to win against strong MI.

IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Key Player Prediction

IPL 2017 Match Prediction : Amla's calmness can strengthen Punjab's shaky top order
IPL 2017 Match Prediction: Amla’s calmness can strengthen Punjab’s shaky top order

Hashim Amla – in his last match at Indore against RCB, Amla made an unbeaten 58 off 38, playing aggressively and guiding his side to chasing 150 in just 14.3 overs. He’s someone that can give Punjab some much-needed calmness amidst the storm of Maxwell, Miller, and Morgan – Amla’s anchoring at the top will dictate Punjab’s pathway to victory.
