According to PBKS vs MI Dream11 Prediction for Today’s Match Fantasy Cricket, Mumbai Indians will take on Punjab Kings in the 17th match of the VIVO IPL, 2020-21 on Friday, 23 April 2021, at the Chepauk Stadium. Keep reading to find out about the VIVO IPL, 2020-21 17th Match PBKS vs MI Dream11 team today.

Mumbai Indians had an embarrassing outing in the last contest against Delhi Capitals. Except for Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav none of the batters had any clue of what was happening with the pitch, got out cheaply and if not for Jayant Yadav’s tiny cameo at the end, the team would’ve even crossed a hundred. The team’s bowlers had just too little to defend on a good batting pitch. Although they tried, Delhi won it easier in the end.

On the other hand, Punjab began the tournament well with a thrilling victory over Rajasthan Royals but since then, the team couldn’t get on the right side of the result and their bowling is one of the major factors to worry about. Despite having an ensemble cast, the team couldn’t find one good bowler to support Arshdeep Singh.

Talking about this rivalry, Mumbai leads it with 14-12 record from 26 outings. Their last head to head contest ended up in a tie and Punjab went on to win the super over. Apart from that win, Punjab have won only one other time in their last seven meetings.

Fantasy Cricket Expert Tips:

Compared to PBKS bowlers, MI bowlers have done well in the tournament. Rahul Chahar, Krunal Pandya are must-have picks in this contest from MI side while Arshdeep Singh is a must from PBKS. Among batters, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma are mandatory here.

Nicholas Pooran couldn’t get going in this IPL 2021. The team might look to give him some time and might go in with Dawid Malan here. The World Number one T20I batter is undoubtedly a good fit here.

Despite having some of the biggest hitters in the world, Mumbai Indians have struggled with batting, especially in the middle overs. Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav have done well so far to give the team a bright start but none of the players could take it from there.
