Dream11 IPL Match 9: Kings Xi Punjab (KXIP) Vs Mumbai Indians (MI)

Date & Time: on Saturday, 3oth March; 04:00pm IST

Venue: Is Bindra Stadium, Mohali


Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians, who have had contrasting results and controversies surrounding their respective first two matches this season, are locking heads tonight.

Kings XI Punjab must be in good spirits to play their first home game as their record has been quite good here. But, for them Mumbai Indians may prove to be a tough opponent, as they have lost the last 4 matches against them.

Pitch Report

The average first Innings score at IS Bindra Stadium during the 2018 IPL season was 175. In this season too, the score might not be very different as a batsman-friendly surface is likely. Bowlers can have their say if they can use the long boundaries to good effect.

Weather-wise there is no chance of rain, and dew is unlikely to have an effect on the match as it starts at 1600 hours.

Players to watch out for

Chris Gayle

The Universe Boss’ form doesn’t seem like it is going to go away anytime soon; he has just been piling on runs in every single game. Today he is expected to continue the same in Mohali, since he especially enjoys playing at this venue.

In the last two matches that he has played here, he scored 104 and 63 respectively. If he doesn’t give his wicket to Bumrah, it is safe to say that this streak will continue.

Rohit Sharma

He is fresh from a potent knock against Bangalore, where he set the innings on fire at the top of the order. In the last season, he wasn’t very productive batting in the middle order, but Rohit is a different batsman altogether when batting at the top. He averages 33 while batting at the top whereas in other positions he averages in the mid-’20s. However, Rohit has a profound weakness against leg spin, which will make his contest against Varun very interesting. Will Ashwin give him another go in the power play again? Chances are that he will!


The Right-handed batsman hasn’t started the season on a good note, but still, he is too good a player to be out of form for long. Returning to Mohali is an ideal scenario for Rahul, where he averaged 37 at this venue in the previous season. On top of that, he has an exceptional record against the Mumbai bowlers. That is why our model predicts that we can look forward to a big score from him today.

Andrew Tye

He is always amongst the top wicket takers in T20 tournaments around the world, and he even got the purple cap last IPL. Although he hasn’t started the season well, we can expect him to give us a great show against Mumbai Indians. He has good numbers against all Mumbai batsmen, and he would definitely bowl against Hardik Pandya as he has got him twice in last 4 encounters.


You just can’t miss the world’s best bowler. He is fresh from a match-winning performance against Bangalore. Now the onus will be on Kings XI camp to see him off without much damage in the match. He got the better of Gayle and Rahul in the previous encounter between Mumbai and Punjab. We are sure to have a terrific performance from him.
