Coming to the Kings XI Punjab, openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, who are the top two leading run-scorers of the tournament, have done exceptionally well and the addition of Chris Gayle has added more firepower to the side. In fact, their position in the team standings doesn’t really replicate their performance. Punjab indeed have done well in most of their meetings, but their knack of collapsing in the crunch situations has proved costly.
Mumbai Indians will take the field as firm favourites and will be determined to get two more points in their kitty. On the other hand, KXIP must put their best foot forward as a defeat here might well bring curtains to their campaign.
