Punjab Kings are currently placed at the last spot in the Points Table with a solitary win against their name in four matches. The KL Rahul-led side is coming to clash after suffering three successive losses in their previous respective outings. Moreover, PBKS haven’t been able to find their right combination so far in the tournament. As a result, they will continue making further changes in their playing XI ahead of this match as well. The number one T20I batsman Dawid Malan is expected to make his IPL debut in place of Nicholas Pooran.

Mumbai Indians have looked off-colour so far in the 14th edition of the cash-rich league. Though MI holds fourth place in the charts after two wins and as many losses, their key players are yet to fire. MI’s middle-order batsmen including Ishan Kishan, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya are yet to deliver in IPL 2021. The defending champions aren’t expected to make any changes in their lineup and would expect their star players to lead from the front.
