After securing consecutive victories, they stumbled against Chennai Super Kings, falling short by 20 runs in a high-scoring encounter.

MI’s openers have been in exceptional form this season, consistently setting the tone with aggressive stroke play and posting imposing powerplay scores. With an average powerplay score of 64 in six games, MI’s batting unit poses a significant threat. Jasprit Bumrah, despite going wicketless in the previous match, has been exceptional throughout the season, claiming 10 wickets at an economy rate of 6.08.

However, despite the absence of captain Shikhar Dhawan, Punjab Kings have the potential to spring a surprise. Stand-in captain Sam Curran, while not at his best with the bat, has been influential with the ball, capturing eight wickets in six games at a strike rate of 13.5, while also contributing with 126 runs. The odds of PBKS emerging victorious in this encounter stand at 2.25.

Keeping all these in mind we at Insidesport,IN predict Hardik Pandya led Mumbai Indians to prevail over the Punjab Kings at Mullanpur.
