Mumbai Indians v Kings XI Punjab – Team News

Mumbai haven’t made many changes this IPL and it would be no surprise to see them go with the tried and tested line-up once again.

They did make one change in the last game as Nathan Coulter-Nile came in for James Pattinson. They will now need to decide if to revert to the side that beat Delhi or still with Coulter-Nile.

Having Chris Gayle back is a huge positive for KXIP, as shown by his thumping half-century against RCB last time out.

While it was strange to see him at three, it was no surprise Kings XI want to keep KL Rahul and Mayak Agarwal together at the top. The duo currently sit at one and two in the Orange Cap table.

After they finally picked up a win in their previous game, it is unlikely they’ll make too many alterations for this.

They could turn to Mujeeb ur Rahman to bolster their bowling attack, which has struggled at times this campaign.

Mumbai Indians v Kings XI Punjab – Betting Tips and Prediction

Mumbai have quickly found their feet this year and have a settled side to back that up. They are worthy favourites to secure the victory.

That said, they are facing a KXIP side that will be lifted by victory over RCB and by having Chris Gayle back in their ranks.

There is an array of other betting markets to consider ahead of this interesting tussle.

Back Yadav to Top Score

Suryakumar Yadav has been superb batting at three for Mumbai this tournament.

While the likes of Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock will come in for support, backing Yadav in the top MI batsman market could be a good bet.

He followed up his 79 against Rajasthan with another half-century against Delhi. His price of 4.48 with 22Bet looks a little too generous.

Boult Consistency Makes Him a Good Bet

Trent Boult has been among the wickets for Mumbai recently and can continue that here.

The New Zealander bagged two against Rajasthan, one against Delhi and was in the thick of the action against KKR too.

He is priced at 4.0 with 22Bet to be Mumbai’s leading wicket-taker in this contest.

Agarwal to Take Centre Stage

Mayank Agarwal has quietly gone about his business in IPL 2020. The KXIP opener sits second behind his captain KL Rahul in the overall run-scorer charts.

All eyes will be on Rahul and Chris Gayle for this but it could be a great time to back Agarwal. He has been brilliant at times, has a fine range of shots, and looks to be playing with real confidence.

His price of 3.74 for 22Bet is worth considering and could offer some value.
