In Match 24 of VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL 2019), Mumbai Indians will host Kings XI Punjab at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday.
in Points Table – Fifth-placed Mumbai Indians take on the third-placed Kings XI Punjab in match 24 of IPL 2019. Mumbai Indians beat the 2018 runners-up Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous fixture and Kings XI Punjab also piled on the misery on SRH with a six-wicket win.
Rohit Sharma will look to lead by example at the top of batting order with Quinton de Kock as he failed to put on a quality show so far in IPL 2019
The main concern for Mumbai Indians are form of their batters at the top as they don’t have anyone in the top-20 run-scorers’ list in IPL 2019.
KL Rahul has been in good form for Kings XI Punjab and Ashwin has proved more than useful with the ball. On the other hand, Alzarri Joseph’s record 6/12 reignited Mumbai’s hopes after a mediocre start. Also, Mumbai Indians have a major injury scare with Rohit Sharma sustaining a hamstring injury during training.
KXIP are placed at the third spot in IPL points table 2019 with four wins from six games, MI are fifth with three wins from five games.
The wicket in Wankhede should aide stroke play and considering the form that the likes of KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal are in, they would be waiting to put on their pads and take strike.
