MI Team News
Mumbai Indians come into this game on the back of two successful outings defending a target. IPL veteran Lasith Malinga is back into the squad but it doesn’t seem that Alzarri Joseph will be dropped from the team after his heroics in the last game. It could be a toss-up between Malinga and Jason Behrendoff for the final spot.
KXIP Team News
Punjab won the last match comfortably but Chris Gayle lost his wicket cheaply. This wicket is more suited to his playing style and we could see a big knock from him. KL Rahul batted quite well in the last game and more importantly finished the game for his side. He along with Mayank Agarwal put on a match winning partnership and they will be expected to bat with the same responsibility in this match.
