Kings XI Punjab is one of the unluckiest teams in this year’s IPL after losing two very close games out of their three matches. Apart from a thumping victory against Royal Challengers, KL Rahul-led side lost their other two games against Delhi Capitals and Rajasthan Royals.

Coming to their last game, KXIP openers Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul batted brilliantly as they posted a mammoth total in front of the opposition. But their bowlers miserably failed to defend it as they succeeded the highest ever run chase in IPL history. As a result, they might make a change in their bowling unit and Mujeeb ur Rahman may take the place of Sheldon Cottrell.

The situation of Mumbai Indians is somewhat similar to their opponents, as they too lost two out of their previous three games. Their only victory of this season came against Dinesh Karthik’s Kolkata Knight Riders.

Rohit and co. lost their last game to Royal Challengers Bangalore in an exciting run chase that went to the super over. Ishan Kishan and Kieron Pollard almost won the match for their team but fell just a solitary run short of the target. The MI Paltan is expected to play this game with the same playing XI.
