51st Match of IPL 2017: Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab
The match is scheduled to begin on May 11, 2017. 20:00 local time (14:30 GMT)
Kings XI Punjab: VR Aaron, HM Amla, Anureet Singh, Armaan Jaffer, KC Cariappa, MJ Guptill, Gurkeerat Singh, MJ Henry, SE Marsh, GJ Maxwell, DA Miller, EJG Morgan, NS Naik, T Natarajan, AR Patel, WP Saha, P Sahu, DJG Sammy, Sandeep Sharma, I Sharma, MM Sharma, RK Singh, MP Stoinis, Swapnil Singh, R Tewatia, M Vohra
Mumbai Indians: RG Sharma*, JJ Bumrah, JC Buttler, S Gopal, K Gowtham, DAS Gunaratne, Harbhajan Singh, MG Johnson, K Khejroliya, SD Lad, MJ McClenaghan, SL Malinga, HH Pandya, KH Pandya, PA Patel, KA Pollard, N Pooran, DS Punia, N Rana, AT Rayudu, JM Sharma, KV Sharma, LMP Simmons, TG Southee, J Suchith, SS Tiwary, R Vinay Kumar.
Mumbai Indians are expected to make a couple of changes in the side after their defeat against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last game. While Krunal Pandya could be brought back in place of Karn Sharma, Lasith Malinga could be given a breather and replaced by Mitchell Johnson.
Rohit Sharma and Nitish Rana have both hit three fifties this IPL and they will be the key batsmen for the Mumbai Indians at the top of the batting lineup. The skipper scored a 45 ball 67 in the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad and the team will want him to continue his good form. MI’s bowling will depend largely on their two frontline pacemen, Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah. The two have so far taken 17 and 14 wickets respectively and are expected to bowl well against the KXIP.
Mumbai Indians, despite having lost their previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, are leading the Indian Premier League 2017 league table with 18 points. They have generally been good with the bat except the last match where their batsmen faltered to register only their third total below 150 this season.
Shaun Marsh will be the one top order batsman to watch out for. He has two good scores in his previous four innings and KXIP will expect the in-form batsman to score big in this crucial match against the Mumbai Indians. His fellow Australian allrounder Glenn Maxwell is another vital cog in KXIP’s lineup. Not only is he a dangerous middle-order batsman but he has also done a decent job with the ball this season. Sandeep Sharma and Axar Patel will continue to be the team’s go-to bowlers for taking wickets.
A 14 run victory in the last match against the Kolkata Knight Riders means that Kings XI Punjab are still in the race for the playoffs. They now have 6 wins and as many losses from the 12 league matches they have played so far and are currently fifth on the IPL 2017 leaderboard.
