IPL 2021 Dream11 Punjab Kings vs Mumbai Indians Prediction, April 23
Punjab Kings will face Mumbai Indians at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on 23rd April 2021. Punjab Kings has played one match against SRH at this venue, so the team is familiar with the conditions in Chennai. Mumbai Indians also have the advantage of having played at this venue since the start of the tournament. It will be an exciting match because both teams have similarly strong batting and bowling units.
The Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians have faced each other 26 times in the past. Mumbai has won 14 matches, while Punjab has won 12. When it comes to head-to-head battles, both teams have been neck to neck. The last time these two teams clashed, it resulted in a super over. MI leads the previous five encounters between these two teams, having won three of the five.
Punjab Kings Team Report
Punjab Kings is one of the balanced teams in the IPL 2021. Until now, the Punjab Kings have been unable to consistently perform as a team and win matches. Despite the fact that KL Rahul has been leading the batting order admirably, winning this tournament needs every player on the team to contribute.
The opening pair of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal has been in excellent batting form and have been successful in consistently scoring runs for Punjab Kings. The batting unit of this team is heavily dependent on this opening pair. Punjab’s batting unit had collapsed on the Wankhede Stadium’s batting pitch against CSK. The pitch at this venue has a bowling favourable pitch, making it difficult for Chris Gayle and Nicholas Pooran to read the ball. Deepak Hooda has shown glimpses of form, but he’s yet to deliver consistently.
Mohammed Shami and Arshdeep Singh have been the most successful bowlers for Punjab Kings in this season. Jhye Richardson has not yet impressed with his bowling as to the reputation that preceded him before this IPL season. Punjab Kings had recently made many changes in their bowling unit, by including Fabian Allen, Moises Henriques in place of Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith. Murugan Ashwin is the key spin bowler of this squad.
Punjab Kings have many weaker ties in their current playing 11. The batting order being heavily reliant on KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal is a cause of concern for this squad, as other batsmen have not been seen to be in good form this season. The best batsman in T20 cricket, David Malan, is yet to make his debut for this side. Against the Delhi Capitals, the bowling unit was totally exposed, with lead bowler Mohammed Shami looking helpless. If this team is to win this match against MI, they must begin to contribute collectively as a team.
Key players for PBKS: KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Deepak Hooda, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh, Murugan Ashwin.
Mumbai Indians Team Report
This five-time champion franchise is a contender for the IPL 2021 title. They have a well-balanced and strong squad. Mumbai Indians are yet to find a winning streak in this IPL season. They have won two and lost two of their last four matches.
This season, the Mumbai Indians’ batting unit is led by Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav. The fact that Rohit Sharma is scoring runs for MI is good news for the team. This squad also includes batting heavyweights like Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, and Quinton de Kock. The inclusion of Krunal Pandya and Ishan Kishan in this batting unit strengthens the squad’s batting.
The pace bowling duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult has been the backbone of Mumbai’s bowling unit. Despite not taking many wickets in the power play this season, Bumrah has been successful in the death overs. This team’s spin bowling attack is led by Rahul Chahar and Jayant Yadav. Bowling alternatives in the form of Krunal Pandya and Kieron Pollard offer this team the added benefit of having a variety of bowling alternatives.
Key players for MI: Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult.

Dream XI Fantasy Cricket Team Summary

Mumbai would like to win this match and remain in the top four positions of the points table, while Punjab must win this match because losing this match would bring the franchise under pressure for their remaining matches in order to qualify for the playoffs.

Based on their recent performances, these batsmen are very likely to be the leading run-scorers for their respective teams. In this Dream11 team, KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan will also contribute with the bat. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will be key players in this match.
This venue favors the bowlers, and we can expect to see a turn in this wicket. Bowlers will be critical in this match. Trent Boult, Rahul Chahar, Mohammed Shami, and Arshdeep Singh are the four bowlers in this Dream11 team. Kieron Pollard will also contribute to this team by his contribution in MI’s bowling unit.
We believe that a range of 160-170 is a reasonable estimate for the venue. Though bowlers will have an advantage in this game, spending time on the pitch and running between the wickets will be necessary for a successful batting innings. Please choose your team wisely.
