Team updates & latest news.
It’s very rare a fast bowler performs very well in IPL matches, it’s either a batsmen or a spinner. But the replacement of Lasith Malinga came Alzarri Joseph – a calm & composed fast bowler from Caribbean, 6/12 was his last match figures. He is definitely to the player to look out for. Mumbai bowling looks pretty decent as they have this variety of options with senior player plus newcomers both performing well without any loose ends. In batting department, K Pollard’s last match bash is giving team a positive vibe as he can be crucial in death overs.
King’s XI Punjab.
KL Rahul’s consistency is very appreciable but they say he is not suitable to play T20, we don’t think so. If they batting first he should keep his strike rate high to keep the runs coming on board that’s it. But in the chasing game his knock is crucial like last match with another in form youngster Mayank Agarwal. Gayle continues to fail in all the game apart from their first game, he should either start playing responsibly or hit some huge hits out of the park like usual. Bowlers are expensive in their spells in every match ever for KXIP, we think they should be rotated for some youngster waiting for his chance.

Our Match Prediction.
Mumbai Indians – 50%
Kings XI Punjab – 50%
Our pick is Mumbai Indians, they look well balanced with bowling and batting only concern is the opening partnership collapsing very soon. Equal chances are there for KXIP if they can get some early wickets plus if Gayle can produce some huge hits that’s it game will be theirs.
