Mumbai Indians vs. Kings XI Punjab 10th April, 2019 Match Prediction: Who’ll Win Today?

A battle of evens!

Its match number 24 of VIVO IPL 2019. The Wankhede stadium will see two heavy weights locking horns in a pit to see who the better team is. Both the teams received confidence boosts after a win in their previous encounters. Punjab is in the hopes of solidifying their position in the top three while Mumbai are aiming for the top. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our prediction.

Mumbai Indians

MI received a huge boost after a huge win over SRH in their last match. Defending a low total, MI bundled out Hyderabad for 96, with an excellent performance from debutant Alzarri Joseph. The bowler scalped 6 with just 12 runs conceded, helping MI secure a 40 run victory. The team will be looking forward to the young West Indian against a mighty KXIP batting line up. The MI team were dealt with a huge blow, after Captain Rohit Sharma injured himself in the nets. It is still unclear on who will replace Sharma with the possible name being thrown up of Evin Lewis. The opener played well for MI last time around nothing over 350 runs. This will certainly be a challenge to the batting unit against a dangerous KXIP bowling.

The bowling unit has been impressive over the past few matches. Alzarri Joseph was certainly the star in the last match. With his fiery pace and precision, the Punjab hitters have a hard job of playing the pacer. MI received a boost in the form of Lasith Malinga. The Sri Lankan rejoined the team and remains a possibility to face KXIP. MI has a trifecta of excellent pacers, Malinga, Joseph and Bumrah all looking to start the game.

In the absence of Sharma, Pollard, Suryakumar Yadav, Pandya need to step up. Joseph will look to continue his red hot form against a dominant Punjab.

Predicted XI

Quinton de Kock, Evin Lewis, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishen, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Alzarri Joseph, Jasprit Bumrah, Jason Behrendoff, Rahul Chahar.

Kings XI Punjab

The Kings of Punjab are in search of their fifth win of IPL 2019. In a pretty much balanced and unchanged squad over the past few matches, KXIP look to field the same playing eleven. The focus will be on the opening pair of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle. A formidable pair who can easily destroy any bowling attack. Rahul has been in excellent form with a cracker of an innings in the last one. Gayle, on the other hand has been struggling. But one should never question the big man. Against a team of pace bowlers, Gayle, Rahul and Mayank Agarwal will be looking to go for a high scoring match.

The main threat to Mumbai batting is skipper Ravi Ashwin. The spinner is in tremendous form with seven wickets in six matches and will be looking to rattle the likes of Yadav, Pollard and Kishan. With good support from Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mohammed Shami and Sam Curran, KXIP have a really good bowling attack.

Undoubtedly MI will be wary of KL Rahul, Chris Gayle  and Ravichandran Ashwin.

Predicted XI

Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Sarfaraz Khan, David Miller, Mandeep Singh, Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mujeeb ur Rahman, Mohammed Shami, Ankit Rajpoot.
