KXIP vs MI Today IPL Match Prediction :
Kings XI Punjab will face off Mumbai Indians in their next match of Indian Premier League 2020 in Abu Dhabi tonight. Both the sides have only one win from three matches and are coming with heart-breaking losses in their respective last match. And now both will be fighting against each other to clinch the second win of the tournament.
Here we are going to discuss strengths and weakness of Kings XI Punjab as well as of Mumbai Indians and will also make our KXIP vs MI Today Match Prediction –
Kings XI Punjab’s major strength is their opening pair of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal as these two have scored 222 and 221 runs in just 3 matches respectively and both also have one hundred each so they’re in great form and once again will look to provide good start. In the last match Nicholas Pooran also played a nice cameo and that innings will boost his morale while the likes of Maxwell, Karun Nair and Sarfraz Khan didn’t get enough chances but they too will be eager to show their talent. In the bowling the pair of Sheldon Cottrell and Mohammad Shami have done well and they will be the key with new ball and in the spin young Ravi Bishnoi and Murugan Ashwin have been impressive so far.
On the other hand, Mumbai Indians’ major strength is their batting depth as they have batting until number 8 and the likes of Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard have played good knocks and they all have the fire power to score big runs. In the bowling Trent Boult is doing fine job with the new ball while James Pattinson too has been good and in the middle and death overs Jasprit Bumrah is the key. In spin department Rahul Chahar and Krunal Pandya have to lead.
Kings XI Punjab’s weakness is their lower order as they don’t have any finisher and Maxwell too hasn’t looked in good touch so someone like Nicholas Pooran should be given this role and young Sarfraz Khan too has to show his potential. In the bowling they got smashed in the last match but one match’s poor performance shouldn’t affect them and they have to bounce back against a strong team like Mumbai.
Mumbai Indians don’t have any major weakness but the poor form of Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya is concern for them as Hardik has failed to cross 20 runs mark in the first three matches and Krunal Pandya is struggling with ball and wicket keeper Quinton de Kock too hasn’t been at his best and he needs to give good start. In the bowling Rahul Chahar needs to restrict opposition batsmen in the middle overs while Jasprit Bumrah needs to work on his yorkers and James Pattinson should work on his line and length.
Here we are going to discuss both Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians’ playing combination and probable playing Xis who will be useful for making Punjab vs Mumbai Dream11 Team
Kings XI Punjab lost two matches out of three but their performances in those two losses were good and they should continue to back the same playing 11 while Mumbai Indians might make one change as James Pattinson looked clueless in the last match and Nathan Coulter Nile may replace him.

KXIP vs MI Today IPLMatch Prediction :
Here we are going to discuss about a few players from both sides who can be very good picks for KXIP vs MI Dream 11 Prediction teams
KL Rahul : He has started his tournament very well as he has scored 222 runs in just 3 innings with 1 hundred and fifty each and while opening he will have full freedom to attack Mumbai bowlers and might play yet another good knock.
Mayank Agarwal : He has improved a lot over the years and with 221 runs in 3 innings with 1 hundred and fifty each he has shown his caliber and will be eager to play yet another good innings for his team.
Rohit Sharma : Rohit Sharma played 80 runs winning knock against Knight Riders and the bowling attack of Punjab will suit him so he might get a big one in this match.
Kieron Pollard : He has been in good form in T20 cricket this year and in the last match played a wonderful knock of 60 runs from 24 balls and now a days he is also bowling a few overs at back end of the innings so he is a very good pick for fantasy teams.
