Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians – Match Preview

The Kings XI Punjab manage to upset eventual champions Mumbai once in the 2019 IPL, but lost to them both times in the 2018 season.

In the IPL 2020, they’ve each won one match and lost two. This result will put one above the other. It’ll be interesting to see if another upset is on the cards.

Where: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

When: Thursday, 1 October 2020

Start time: 14:00 GMT (19:30 IST)

Pitch conditions: Pitches in the UAE have been described as “sticky” and “skiddy” this month. Totals of 200-plus haven’t been enough by the team batting first. But bowling first and then chasing a target seems the way to go, even if the ball is difficult to manage in the evening dew.

Weather conditions: It’s the usual forecast for Abu Dhabi on Thursday – hot, dry and no probability of rain. Temperatures will touch on the late 30 degrees celsius, as players continue to navigate their hydration and energy levels in the sapping heat.

Funbet are on our list of new Indian betting sites. We like what they have offered in the IPL 2020 so far. You can look forward to their variety of markets and good odds for the rest of the tournament.

Their outright odds for this match have Mumbai as favourites at 1.62 and Punjab underdogs at 2.15. Now is a good time to bet on KXIP, given Mumbai’s shaky start to their title defence.

Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians – Team News

Now might be the time for Punjab to get Chris Gayle and Mujeeb Ur Rahman into the XI. It’s intriguing that neither have played yet.

Bringing in Chris Jordan for Sheldon Cottrell or Jimmy Neesham is a good option, too. Leaving Cottrell out would boost the depth of the batting.

But batting is not Punjab’s main concern, especially on the back of Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul’s dominance at the top of the order.

For Mumbai, Ishan Kishan will likely keep his place, even if Saurabh Tiwary is fit again. Kishan was outstanding en route to 99 against the Royal Challengers.

The Indians need to decide if they can afford to have Hardik Pandya in the team as a specialist batsman. He isn’t bowling, which is a bit problematic, especially when Kieron Pollard can turn his arm over.

Dropping Pandya and drafting in another all-rounder could work. Nathan Coulter-Nile has been sidelined by injury.

We’re really enjoying the performances of Rahul Chahar. The leg-spinner’s unusual ‘through and around’ approach to the right-handers is proving successful.

Kings XI Punjab v Mumbai Indians – Betting Tips and Prediction

Consider these IPL betting tips to help you ahead of the match. They are based on the form of the teams and the players in the tournament so far.

Choose Kishan to be Mumbai’s Top Batsman

Ishen Kishan was superb against Bangalore, but couldn’t quite get his team over the line. What he has done, though, is all but cement a spot in the first-choice XI.

He is a good price at 5.5 to be the top batsman for Mumbai with 22Bet. While Rohit Sharma, Quinton de Kock and other bigger Mumbai names are not firing, Kishan looks good to shine again.

Bet on Jordan to Be KXIP’s Top Bowler

Sheldon Cottrell put in a terrible performance toward the close of the innings against the Royals. He’ll likely be dropped for this one, yielding a return for Chris Jordan.

Jordan is a T20 specialist of sorts, playing in leagues around the world, including the Pakistan Super League and Big Bash League.

He knows how to adapt to circumstances and conditions, quickly. 1xBet have him well priced at 4.0 to be the top bowler for Punjab.

Back a Century to Be Scored

The IPL 2020 has already seen two centuries and a 99. All three of those scores were collected by men who will likely feature in this match.

From KL Rahul to Mayank Agarwal, Ishan Kishan and more, there are plenty of capable centurions on show here.

Dubai and Sharjah have witnessed the five highest individual scores this season so far, but conditions are primed for Abu Dhabi to enter the list.

The best cricket betting sites are offering increasingly shorter odds of a century being scored, but LeoVegas are still well priced at 7.5.
