(Cricket news) For Mumbai Indians they have had the same journey so far in IPL 2023 as they began the season with two crushing defeats before bouncing back with three wins on the trot. Their batting has looked solid on paper but the lack of runs from Cameron Green and Suryakumar Yadav made the MI fans worried but with both coming into their own over the last two games, Mumbai look a much stronger team. They would want Jofra Archer to be fit
For Punjab Kings, after winning back-to-back games they managed just one more win in their next four matches. Kings’ plan with bat was that their captain Shikhar Dhawan plays the anchor’s role and others play around him. Dhawan’s shoulder injury has them caught off guard without a back-up plan. They have to worry about Kagiso Rabada as he has picked up a niggle and will sit out the game against Mumbai too. Kings need to figure out their best combination of overseas players.
If Archer is available, he could come in for Riley Meredith. Else Mumbai could field an unchanged side with Tilak Varma and Meredith as their Impact Player pair.
Probable XII: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Ishan Kishan (wk), 3 Cameron Green, 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 Tilak Varma, 6 Tim David, 7 Nehal Wadhera, 8 Jofra Archer/Riley Meredith, 9 Arjun Tendulkar, 10 Hrithik Shokeen, 11 Piyush Chawla, 12 Jason Behrendorff
Nathan Ellis will continue in Rabada’s stead. Prabhsimran Singh and Rahul Chahar could once again be their Impact pair.
Probable XII: 1 Atharva Taide, 2 Prabhsimran Singh, 3 Liam Livingstone, 4 Harpreet Singh, 5 Matthew Short, 6 Jitesh Sharma (wk), 7 M Shahrukh Khan, 8 Sam Curran (capt), 9 Harpreet Brar, 10 Nathan Ellis, 11 Arshdeep Singh, 12 Rahul Chahar
