IPL 2022: MI vs PBKS Match Preview:
Rohit Sharma’s Mumbai Indians (MI) will be desperate to bring up their first win of the tournament after getting hammered four times on the trot in the first four matches of the Tata IPL 2022. The franchise is struggling to find the right playing XI for the team owing to poor auction strategy.
The bowling department is extremely thin as compared to what they had in the previous few seasons. Barring Jasprit Bumrah, no bowler from the Mumbai setup has shown consistency. Moreover, MI’s plans to go aggressively for Tim David, Daniel Sams and Jofra Archer have been amidst criticism following four consecutive defeats. The fans and experts are baffled by the choices Mumbai made during the auction.
Mumbai against Punjab will be highly aggressive with their approach on the field. All the players would be desperate for a win and it will be interesting to see the playing combination of the team.
On the other side, Punjab Kings (PBKS) have already shown that they are a formidable unit. PBKS opened up their IPL 2022 campaign after chasing a mammoth total against RCB which was followed by a loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in a low scoring contest.
Mayank Agarwal and his boys bounced back with a win against Chennai Super Kings, however, again lost the track as they were thrashed by Gujarat Titans (GT).
Punjab will be hoping to dismantle limping Mumbai Indians (MI) and bag another win, however, they will have to ensure that they commit no ugly mistakes on the field.
