Match Preview

Punjab Kings are set to take on Mumbai Indians in the next clash of the IPL 2024, scheduled on April 18, Thursday at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium of Mullanpur. The Kings are having a meager season right now, with them having won only two of their six matches thus far. Not only this, but they also received a major blow in the form of Shikhar Dhawan’s injury ahead of their game against Rajasthan Royals. Dhawan has been sidelined for a couple of days and he is most likely to miss the upcoming game due to his shoulder injury. 

Mumbai, on the other hand, seemed to have returned on track until they met arch-rivals Chennai Super Kings in a thundering clash. The Hardik Pandya side lost to CSK by a margin of 20 runs and put an end to their winning streak. 

Toss Prediction

Punjab and Mumbai have faced each other in a total of 31 encounters in the previous seasons of the cash-rich league. Specifically talking about their last five-match records, Mumbai's skipper got lucky enough to win four tosses, whereas Punjab’s captain could manage to win only one toss. Considering this, we feel that Punjab’s stand-in captain would win the toss over MI’s Hardik Pandya. 

Win Possibility

As we have mentioned, Punjab Kings (earlier Kings XI Punjab) and Mumbai Indians share an IPL rivalry of 31 matches. In those matches, both teams have almost the same record with the Indians having a slight edge in one match. Punjab Kings came out victorious 15 times, whereas Mumbai Indians registered victory in 16 games. 

Talking about this year’s record, both MI and PBKS are having a below-par season. While Mumbai’s consecutive two wins gave hope, they ended up losing against CSK in the last match. On the other hand, PBKS’ biggest issue has been their inconsistency. MI’s defeat must have come as a major shock to them, and they would try their best to make up for it with a win in the next game. 

Punjab, on the flip side, would be without their skipper, and needless to say, his absence would be felt by the side. Considering all of this, MI are favourites to win the upcoming game. 

Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
