Pune: Mumbai Indians will clash with Punjab Kings after four consecutive losses in this year’s Indian Premier League at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
Mumbai Indians are struggling with their playing eleven squads. The players who are being replaced by skipper Rohit Sharma failed to perform in the last game. However, Suryakumar Yadav looks in touch with his form after scoring 68 runs in 37 deliveries.
Skipper Rohit Sharma will be backing Jasprit Bumrah to lead the bowling squad as he has an impressive record against Punjab Kings in the past IPL editions. Jasprit has taken 19 wickets against PBKS.
Punjab Kings on the other hand will be back after a loss against Gujarat Titans where Rahul Tewatia slogged two sixes in the last over leading his team to victory. Skipper Mayank Agarwal made a tactical change with Jonny Bairstow who failed to make an impact in the last game.
However, Liam Livingston is back in form with two consecutive half-centuries. The all-rounder has played the role of an ultimate run machine during crucial middle overs. Captain Mayank Agarwal will be under additional pressure as he has failed to score big runs this season.
