Despite being pretty impressive, Mumbai Indians were on the wrong end of a disappointing super-over loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore last time out. These ones are currently wounded and will be looking to get back to winning ways on Thursday. Kings XI are in danger of being victims of a Mumbai backlash here. However, if everything goes according to plan, Rohit Sharma could end up leading his side to glory.
The magnificent Mayank Agarwal plundered a whopping 106 from 50 balls in their game against Rajasthan Royals. Even with his best efforts, he ended up on the losing side as KXIP failed to defend 223/2 in a four-wicket defeat.
When KXIP last clashed with MI, Captain K.L Rahul hit an unrivaled century, and has register 132* and 69 from his previous two innings in this IPL season. Though expensive on the last matchday, Mohammed Shami managed three wickets, and now has seven in three games.
That defeat saw to it that Jayawardene’s men remained with just a single victory so far this year. This is particularly disturbing given this was supposed to be their title defense season.
Kieron Pollard is likely to be given a run-out by the coach here, after impressing in the Caribbean Premier League. Despite struggling to hit his high marks, Jasprit Bumrah remains key for Mumbai. Prediction (Green Box)
