Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians IPL 2020

MUMBAI INDIANS –

Match Preview

Both these sides were on the wrong end of thrilling IPL encounters last time out with the Mumbai Indians falling agonisingly short in a Super Over after hauling themselves to a tie against RCB, thanks largely to 99 from Ishan Kishan and 16 of the final three balls from Kieron Pollard.

As for the Kings XI, they were architects of their own downfall against Rajasthan Royals as they failed to defend 223 as Sanju Samson’s 85 led the Royals to a record run-chase in the IPL. It was a win apiece across the two meetings last year with KL Rahul leading the Kings XI’s eight-wicket win in Mohali before the Indians chased down 197 in the reverse fixture in Mumbai.

The bookmakers make Mumbai Indians favourites for this clash with a best price 4/6 available, while Kings XI are priced at 6/5.

Our Prediction

Rohit Sharma to Score More Runs than KL Rahul @ Evens

This will be an exciting match-up against two home-favourites and could well be the key to deciding which way this match goes. KL Rahul has not put a foot wrong so far in the competition, sitting as top scorer with a massive 222 runs from three matches but that’s not enough to convince me he’ll outscore white-ball specialist Rohit Sharma here.

Sharma is also in treble figures after three games, including 80 from 54 balls in match two. Given his T20 track record, I would always back the opener in a head-to-head with anyone.
