Advance
They have been in unbridled form with five wins in a row, but the Mumbai Indians cannot afford to be complacent against a Chris Gayle-inspired Kings XI Punjab team in their IPL game here on Sunday.
A win for the Mumbai Indians will practically seal them a place in the play-offs, while a loss for KXIP could put them out of contention.
The Mumbai Indians have crushed opposition teams with an explosive batting lineup complemented by a deadly bowling attack and the last team to bear the brunt were the Kolkata Knight Riders who suffered an eight wicket loss on Friday.
The MI table toppers boast of top hitters like captain Rohit Sharma (251 runs) and his starting partner Quinton de Kock (269) and both are in good touch, while the middle order is manned by players like Suryakumar Yadav. (243 races) and Ishan Kishan (186 races).
Rohit played De Kock’s second fiddle in IM’s win against KKR, with the South African hitting 78 and not out of 44.
On the bowling front, pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult have formed the most successful pair at this IPL with 12 wickets each in eight games thus far. Spinner Rahul Chahar contributed two wickets against KKR for 18 runs.
On the other hand, KXIP languishes at the bottom of the table despite having the top two to win tournament runs in the pattern KL Rahul (387 runs with a strike rate of 134.84) ​​and his starting partner Mayank. Agarwal (337 races).
KXIP’s problem has been that their hitting and bowling haven’t been fired in unison most of the time even though their confidence has been bolstered by Gayle’s return.
The self-proclaimed ‘Universe Boss’ made his first appearance at this IPL with a bang, hitting a 53 of 45 balls, a shot that was laced with five sixes and a four in KXIP’s win over Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore.
There may be a captivating duel between Gayle on one side and Bumrah and Boult on the other.
KXIP has other hitters in shape in Rahul and Agarwal, with both or at least one of them scoring a lot in almost every game.
But his bowling alley has been the weakest link. Except for Mohammad Shami and Ravi Bishnoi, none of the bowlers have inspired confidence, especially in death overs.
Not being able to find the right balance despite trying many options has also contributed to the rapid downgrade of KXIP.
