Mumbai Indians will be squaring up against Punjab Kings in match 42 of IPL 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The match will commence on Tuesday, September 28 at 07:30 PM IST. Here are our MI vs PK Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
MI vs PK Dream11 Predictions: Preview
It has been a season to forget for MI so far:
Mumbai Indians crashed to a heavy defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 55-run defeat pushed them down to the 7th spot in the points table. Their net run rate took a beating too. MI have failed to build any momentum this season. Their much-fancied middle and lower-middle order have had repeated failures. MI needs to fix their problems real quick. Time is running out for them. It is a do-or-die game for them against the Punjab Kings.
Punjab Kings’ tryst with playoffs:
KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings always make a late attempt to qualify for the playoffs. Their campaign this year eerily resembles their last year’s campaign. They have won 4 wins from 10 games much like Mumbai albeit at a better net run rate. Kings have a golden opportunity to build on the win that they achieved against SRH. Much like MI, it is a boom or bust game for Punjab too. Expect fireworks in this encounter.
