Today Match Prediction for PBKS vs MI: Mumbai Indians will play their fifth game of IPL 2021 against Punjab Kings on Friday. The start hasn’t been great for both sides. They have blown hot and cold in the tournament thus far. Mumbai have won 2 out of 4 games, while Punjab have only managed to win one game out of 4. 

Today Match Prediction for PBKS vs MI

Mumbai Indians lost their last game at the hands of Delhi Capitals by 6 wickets. They will play their last game in Chennai against Punjab Kings on Friday. Lack of performance in the middle order has made MI suffer. The likes of Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard are yet to showcase their batting prowess in the tournament. 

 

All the big hitters have failed to adapt to the slow Chepauk surface. Given that there’s one more game to be played in Chennai, Rohit Sharma has to play a big innings on Friday. Suryakumar Yadav too has looked good but hasn’t been able to convert the starts into big scores. Back the duo to come good in the next game against Punjab.

Punjab Kings, on the other hand, looked clueless in their first game in Chennai. The batsmen couldn’t pace the innings and fell cheaply. The slowness of the surface will once again be on display and the KL Rahul and Co. ought to be cautious against MI. 

 

For Kings, KL Rahul would be a player to watch out for. A lot depends on how he starts the innings alongside Mayank Agarwal. With Pooran failing to score runs, one could see Dawid Malan making his debut in the tournament. 

For your dream11 team, Kl Rahul, M Ashwin and Arshdeep Singh are of some value picks.
