PBKS vs MI Top Captains

Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians are set to face each other for the second time in IPL 2023, with PBKS hosting MI at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on 3rd May.

So far, Punjab Kings have played nine matches in the tournament, winning five and losing four. Their season has been a bit inconsistent, with some wins here and there. In their last game against CSK, they managed to clinch a victory on the last ball in a high-scoring encounter. 

Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians have struggled with their bowling unit, primarily due to the absence of Jofra Archer in the playing XI in all the matches, which has weakened their pace attack. However, their batting unit has come up well, providing them with victories in close encounters. 

In the last encounter between PBKS and MI, Arshdeep Singh’s brilliance in the death overs helped PBKS secure a 13-run victory. Both teams will be looking to perform well in this match and clinch the win. Here are the top three captain picks for the PBKS vs MI fantasy team.

Liam Livingstone (PBKS)

The explosive English batsman has shown glimpses of his potential with both the bat and the ball. Despite his inconsistency, Livingstone has a strike rate over 150 and can be a match-winner on his day. 

In the last game against CSK, he played a quickfire knock of 40 runs off just 24 balls, which helped his team secure a victory. With his ability to contribute with both bat and ball, Livingstone can be a valuable captain pick for the PBKS vs MI fantasy team.

Suryakumar Yadav (MI)

The stylish middle-order batsman has been in great form for MI this season. In eight matches, he has scored 201 runs at a strike rate of 176.31. Yadav’s ability to find the gaps and hit big shots makes him a valuable asset in the MI batting lineup. 

In the last game against RR, he played a brilliant innings of 55 runs which helped his team secure a victory. With his consistency and current form, Yadav can be an excellent choice as captain for the PBKS vs MI fantasy team.

Sam Curran (PBKS)

The versatile all-rounder has been a consistent performer for PBKS this season. He has been equally excellent with bat and ball this season so far. Curran has made 192 runs in nine games at an average of 27.42 and a strike rate of 143.28. 

Curran has taken seven wickets with the ball while maintaining a 9.54 economy rate. Curran is a great choice for the captain position on the PBKS vs MI fantasy team because of his versatility with the bat and the ball.
