PBKS vs MI Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips: IPL 2024 33rd Match | PBKS vs MI Dream11 Prediction Today | Mullanpur Pitch Report

IPL’s 17th season is proving to be one of the most thrilling seasons ever with the number of blockbusters on show. Here is the potential for another, with Punjab Kings taking on Mumbai Indians at their home in Mullanpur, Chandigarh.

Both sides have played half a dozen games out of which they have won just two, with the net run rate difference just 0.016 between them. After another close, final-over loss for Punjab against RR, they would want fortunes to go their way even if it happens to be a thrilling contest. It would be interesting to see if Trevor Bayliss’ team manages to get back on the track after two losses back-to-back.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians come into this game after they were outplayed by the ‘Yellove Army’ in the El-Clásico at Wankhede. The Bombay side promises to be one of the strongest sides on paper but has failed to fulfill expectations.

Undoubtedly, one more mega-contest is on the cards to beguile the world, and both teams need to deliver as the halfway mark of the season is here.

  • Shikhar Dhawan has scored 901 runs at an average of 39.2 against MI. He is also the top run-scorer for his side so far this season. A big innings from Shikhar is due and it could arrive in this game.
  • Against Bumrah, Dhawan has scored 105 runs in 87 deliveries with just one dismissal.
  • Sam Curran is having a decent time in this IPL as the English all rounder has contributed to his team. He has scored 126 runs along with eight scalps.
  • Curran has scored 133 runs at SR of 156 against MI and has also struck five times with the ball. The team management and fans would want their vice-captain to come good again.
  • Shashank Singh (146 runs at SR of 185) and Ashutosh Sharma (95 runs at SR of 198) have been the biggest positives for the Kings this season. The duo is performing in almost every game and will fancy their chances against MI’s struggling death bowling.
  • Kagiso Rabada has taken nine wickets so far this season and has 12 wickets against MI overall. He’s got great match ups against some of Mumbai batters including Rohit (37 runs off 25 balls, two dismissals) and Suryakumar (55 runs off 39 balls, three dismissals).
  • Arshdeep Singh is also the top wicket taker for his side along with Rabada with nine wickets thus far. He’s picked up eight wickets in six outings against MI. He has dismissed Ishan Kishan thrice in 12 balls in T20s.

Mumbai Indians

  • Rohit is leading the MI batting line up with 261 runs. He has scored 566 runs against the Punjab franchise at an average of 26.95 and strike rate of 131.93.
  • Suryakumar Yadav’s return has been an adventure as he has scored two ducks and a 17-ball half century in between. Since Punjab have changed their name to Punjab Kings from KXIP, Surya has struck at 173 whilst averaging 40 against them.
  • Surya vs Sam Curran: 52 runs off 19 balls with one dismissal.
