Defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) will be eying to bounce back and turn things around when they face off Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the second game of Tuesday’s double header. Rohit Sharma-led side has lost all three opening matches of the in the UAE-leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021.
Both sides have played 10 matches in the league stage of the ongoing IPL 2021 tournament and have won four and lost six matches so far. However, the reigning champions MI slipped to the seventh place owing to poor net run rate (NRR). They need to win their remaining four games to advance to the playoffs stage, else victories in three from four matches can also get them a playoff berth but the net run rate will come into the picture then.
Although KL Rahul’s Punjab Kings, have the same number of points (8) from 10 matches but a better NRR has placed them on fifth spot in the IPL 2021 standings. Just like MI, Punjab too can’t afford any slip-up and they too need to improve their NRR and also win remainder of the league games for a spot in the IPL playoffs.
The MI vs PBKS match is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST.
