Dream11 IPL 2020 KXIP and MI eye a second win
With all the squads setting the UAE grounds ablaze with their top-notch games every day; the Dream 11 IPL 2020 has been an absolute treat for the IPL fans so far. The 13th match of this amazing season tonight is between Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians in the Sheikh Zayed Stadium at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT) and we can surely expect an intense action.
This combination promises a good match, as both the teams have been inconsistent this season and need this match to get back on track. With just 1 victory and 2 heart-breaking losses each, KXIP and MI are residing in the 5th and 6th places on the points table respectively. Out of the 24 matches they played against each other in the previous seasons, MI has an upper hand with 13 wins, but KXIP has undoubtedly shown slightly better performance in this season. Let us take a look at their team performances and key players.
Kings XI Punjab, in the previous match, played well and were in a good position and lost only by a small margin. The team has players that have already set records: The captain KL Rahul has the most runs (222) of the season to his name as of yet, followed by teammate Mayank Agarwal (221), and both have made it to the top 2 in the list of the fastest centuries. Nicholas Pooran and Glenn Maxwell are two great players who can be handy in getting runs and give strong support.
In the bowling unit, Ravi Bishnoi has been amazing with his economical bowling skills and gave figures of 0-34 from his four overs were and has picked 4 wickets till date, along with Mohammed Shami (7 wickets), a seasoned player, and Murugan Ashwin (4 wickets). All of them make up for a strong team and can give the opponents a tough time.
For Mumbai Indians, the batting prowess of Rohith Sharma lays a solid foundation. The captain needs just 2 runs to complete 5000 IPL runs and will be the third player to have crossed the mark. Kieron Pollard, another big hitter, had an unbeaten 60 off 24 balls against RCB and can help MI win if he keeps that up. Ishan Kishan, the youngster scored 99 off 58 balls in the previous game and might pull the stunt again. Surya Kumar Yadav will look forward to the milestone of 50 sixes (he has 2 left).
On the bowling side, Trent Boult has taken 5 wickets in the 3 games and can give the batsmen a difficult time along with the likes of bowlers like Rahul Chahar (4 wickets), Jasprith Bumrah and James Pattinson. All the players in the MI squad are nothing short of excellent and are proven champions.
Who do you think will bag their second win? Difficult to predict, isn’t it?
