Preview for PBKS vs MI GoodGamer Fantasy Contest:
In the 17th match of IPL 2021, Punjab Kings will take on Mumbai Indians.
Punjab Kings have had an unremarkable campaign so far. Having played four matches, they have won just once and are currently seated at the bottom of the IPL table. They also have the worst NRR of -0.824 in the competition.
Punjab Kings were thumped by Sunrisers Hyderabad in their most recent game. Their batting order failed to get going and ended up collapsing at 120 runs before completing 20 overs. Sunrisers Hyderabad batsmen were in top gear and the likes of David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Kane Williamson had little issues getting to the target with 8 balls to spare. Punjab Kings must desperately put together a good string of results and sort out the issues plaguing the side.
Mumbai Indians, on the other hand, are fourth in the table. They lost their first match of the season and the most recent game against Delhi Capitals. MI had beaten DC in last season’s final to win their fifth IPL crown, but this time around, it was Rishabh Pant’s side who had the last laugh.
The Mumbai Indians batting unit failed to click once again and they could only manage 137 runs. DC got to the target fairly easily and with six wickets to spare.
