After a slow match on Tuesday, the action moves to Wankhede for Mumbai Indians (MI) vs Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) as a run fest awaits the cricket lovers. Kings XI Punjab has some middle order batting issues which they would like to overcome as soon as possible and not leave it as a weakling for the later stages of the tournament.
Mumbai Indians are also not performing very well and they would want their batting to fire. The likes of Quinton de Kock, Rohit Sharma, and Kieron Pollard would be itching to get their mojo going before its too late. Both the teams have good bowling lineups and it will be an interesting clash all-around.

At Wankhede, Mumbai Indians do not have a good record of late, as they have won only 4 out of the 9 games they have played here since last year. Lasith Malinga has been on the move ever since joining the Mumbai Indians camp. He takes a flight to Sri Lanka, back and forth, to play for Mumbai Indians and his domestic team in Sir Lanka. With Alzarri Joseph in red hot form, Malinga might have to sit out the game despite his availability.
Kings XI Punjab is likely to play with the same combination which won them the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last meeting. KL Rahul was the chief architect of the win and his team would expect a repetition of that performance tonight as well.
