MI vs KXIP Dream11 Prediction

Indian Premier League, 2019 | Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab, 24th Match | MI vs KXIP Who Will Win

We are into the 24th match of IPL 2019 and the two teams who are set to lock horns in this riveting contest are the three-time champions Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab who are on a roll currently. The match will be played at the Wankhede in Mumbai.

Mumbai Indians

Alzarri Joseph’s strong debut in the last game against Sunrisers Hyderabad has put Mumbai Indians on top of their game. If we talk about their current position on the points table, they are placed 5th with 3 wins and 2 loss from 5 games and their net run-rate looks healthy as well.

Their bowling department which was looking a bit weak after the departure of Lasith Malinga got a boon in the form of Alzzari Joseph who had a dream start to his IPL career. With match figures of 6 for 12, he now has the best bowling figures in IPL history.

Their batting though is still a bit of concern as big guns like Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard and skipper Rohit Sharma all have failed to get going. Pollard got a quickfire 46 in the last game but has not been consistent so far. Mumbai’s batting order needs to score runs to possess some kind of threat in the upcoming matches.

Kings XI Punjab

Having won 4 out of the 6 matches played, Kings XI Punjab are definitely on a roll. The Karnataka duo of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have held together Punjab’s batting order, while the likes of Mohammad Shami and skipper Ravichandran Ashwin have been bowling well.

Skipper Ravichandran Ashwin has been making frequent changes in his line-up in almost every game and the best part is, they are still winning games on a regular basis. They just need to keep up the good work and play the way they have been playing so far.

Some interesting facts:

  • Rohit Sharma against KXIP (2015 to present)
    0,26,0,15,5,24*,6, 32

MI vs KXIP Dream11 Teams

Players to watch out MI:

The Mumbai Indians have secured two big wins in their last two matches. They handed CSK their first loss of the season followed by a big win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. Bowling looks in complete control as the likes of Jason Behrendorff, Jasprit Bumrah and Alzarri Joseph all delivering goods.

In the batting unit, MI skipper Rohit Sharma averages only 15.42 against KXIP which is a big cause of concern, while Quinton de Kock who is getting starts in all the matches will be crucial. He scored a 50 the last time when these two teams had a face-off. Hardik Pandya is in a good batting form and Kieron Pollard is fresh of a match-saving knock against SRH.

Players to watch KXIP:

KL Rahul has scored three fifties in his last 5 innings against MI. He is fresh of two back-to-back fifties and will be looking to carry his good run of form. Chris Gayle started off brilliantly this season, but his last three innings haven’t been great. Mayank Agarwal has shown consistency in this season so has Sarfaraz Khan.

In the bowling department, the likes of Sam Curran, Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammad Shami will hold the key.
