Punjab Kings have witnessed 3 consecutive losses after winning the first game and is currently positioned at the bottom of the table while Mumbai Indians lost their last game against Delhi Capitals and currently sitting at 4th place on the points table with 2 victories out of 4 games.
Punjab Kings have lost back-to-back matches and as a result, sitting at the bottom of the table. Both batting and bowling have proved to be fragile for them in the matches they have played by far. Even after having an explosive batting lineup, the team got out at below-par totals in two of the games. In their last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, after winning the toss, skipper KL Rahul decided to bat first.
KL Rahul himself got out cheaply followed by Chris Gayle. Nicholas Pooran got an unfortunate runout on duck and once again the middle order of Punjab Kings collapsed. Only Mayank Agarwal and Shahrukh Khan crossed the 20-run mark and scored 22 runs each. This resulted in a below-par total of 120 runs.
While defending this total, the bowlers of Punjab struggled and only Fabian Allen was able to pick a wicket, and as a result, Punjab Kings lost the game by 9 wickets. The team must improve in both the batting and bowling departments to bring the team back on a winning track.
Talking about Mumbai Indians, this team lost its last game against Delhi Capitals after winning two consecutive matches. After winning the toss, skipper Rohit Sharma decided to bat first. The wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock failed to leave an impact with the bat and got out cheaply. Rohit Sharma scored 44 runs off 30 deliveries, including 3 fours and 3 sixes.
Surya Kumar Yadav scored 24 runs off 15 deliveries while the all-rounder Hardik Pandya got out for a duck, Kieron Pollard also departed on a personal score of just 2 runs. With the help of slow but sensible innings from Ishan Kishan who scored 26 runs, and Jayant Yadav who scored 23 runs, Mumbai Indians reached a respectable but still a small total of 137 runs.
In response to this, Delhi Capitals chased down this total with 6 wickets in hand and 5 balls remaining. Jasprit Bumrah, Rahul Chahar, Kieron Pollard, and Jayant Yadav picked one wicket each. The team is unlikely to make any big change in the playing XI as their squad is pretty much settled and knows how to make a comeback from a defeat.
