Amidst the IPL excitement and cheer, our favorite IPL teams – Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians and KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings will lock horns at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, on 28th September 2021.
The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians will face a hard battle against KL Rahul & Co. The two teams share a rivalry of equals in the Indian Premier League and have played equally normally in the IPL 2021. Both the teams will battle it out as they must win the game to keep their struggle of qualifying in the IPL playoffs alive.
In this match, Mumbai Indians will also be looking forward to avenging their loss in the season’s first phase. However, the match is expected to be even, and the performances from both the teams are supposed to be equally phenomenal; the middle-order batters would define the outcome of the match. Unfortunately, the middle-order batsmen of both MI and PBKS have failed to prove their dominance with the bat in the last three matches held in UAE, which is not a good form to bring in at this stage of IPL.
After a hat-trick of losses, Mumbai Indians will be required to bring back their top-order batting form to spark their performance and turn things around against Punjab Kings in the IPL 2021 on Tuesday.
As far as the team is concerned, they will have to make complete use of their resources, and with the playoffs nearing, MI will have to up their game after losing all three games in the second leg of the IPL in UAE. Back-to-back losses have them slipped to the seventh spot with 8 points from 10 games.
MI’s batting form is a major worry for the franchise as their mainstays and top players like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma have struggled for runs. Even though Rohit Sharma scored 33 and 43 in the last two games he couldn’t bring the team to the win.
Hardik Pandya was left out in the first two games due to health issues but he was back in the playing XI against RCB where his stay was short-lived.
