MI vs KXIP Dotball Preview
Inconsistent Mumbai Indians Look to Continue their Winning Streak
Consistency has been an issue for Mumbai Indians especially towards the start of the IPL in almost every season. The batting order looks strong with a rock solid opening pair which has not performed to the expectations of many. The middle order was a major worry for MI but Hardik and Pollard have been game changers in the last few games. Mumbai Indians seem to be having the best bowling lineup in the tournament this year after CSK and the introduction of Alzarri Joseph seems to be a blessing in disguise. MI will look forward to put forward yet another team effort after an inconsistent start to this edition of the IPL.
Kings XI Punjab – Will the Dream Run Continue?
Kings XI Punjab have been the underdogs and chokers for the most part of the IPL history. However, Ravichandran Ashwin’s team seems to be producing some magical performances this season. KL Rahul’s return to form and Sarfaraz Khan’s consistency is a huge boost to a team which was heavily reliant on their opening pair ( Gayle and Rahul ) for a considerable chunk of the runs last season. Ashwin has been dominating with his bowling and Shami seems to be displaying his maturity as well. Sam Curran has been a worthy addition to the side. The youngster instills positivity to the side. The bandwagon is well in contention for a top four spot if they continue to believe in their strengths and iron out their weaknesses.
