PBKS vs MI Playing XI: Shikar Dhawan sits out, Mumbai Indians remain unchanged

The PBKS vs MI clash will be live streamed on JioCinema with the live telecast on Star Sports Network

Punjab Kings (PBKS) will face off against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur. In their previous encounter, PBKS suffered a three-wicket defeat at the hands of Rajasthan Royals (RR), while MI fell short in their chase against Chennai Super Kings (CSK), slipping to ninth spot in the standings. The PBKS vs MI game will be played from 7.30 PM IST.

Will Shikhar Dhawan play against MI?

Punjab Kings are expected to stick with an unchanged XI, albeit without Dhawan, who is set to miss at least the next two matches at Mullanpur. Atharva Taide is poised to fill his spot, while Jitesh Sharma, despite enduring a head injury requiring over a dozen stitches, is deemed fit to continue.

Rilee Rossouw or Jonny Bairstow?

Bairstow’s recent struggles, particularly at Mullanpur with scores of 9, 0, and 15, may prompt PBKS to consider including the South African batsman Rilee Rossouw. Meanwhile, the lower-order duo of Shashank Singh and Ashutosh Sharma has posed a formidable threat with the bat, likely leading to similar Impact Player strategies, with Ashutosh potentially making way for Arshdeep Singh,

PBKS Probable XI: Rilee Rossouw, Atharva Taide, Sam Curran, Jitesh Sharma (wk), Prabhsimran, Shashank Singh, Liam Livingstone, Arshdeep Singh, Harpreet Brar, Kagiso Rabada, Harshal Patel

PBKS Impact Player: Ashutosh Sharma

Mumbai Indians to remain unchanged

Mumbai Indians coming off a defeat against CSK, is anticipated to field the same lineup and aims to return to winning ways. Failure to do so would be detrimental for Hardik Pandya and his squad. The overseas quartet is set to retain their positions, with Bumrah and Gerald Coetzee standing out as MI’s only bowlers with a sub-ten economy rate in the death overs this IPL season. Despite being the third-highest-expensive in this phase, Mumbai’s bowling attack has shown promise. Piyush Chawla may make a comeback as an Impact Player, considering Akash Madhwal’s expensive outings thus far.

MI Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan (wk), Tilak Varma, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (c), Tim David, Mohammad Nabi, Romario Shepherd, Shreyas Gopal, Gerald Coetzee, Jasprit Bumrah

MI Impact Player: Piyush Chawla
