A mid-table clash in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will witness a game between Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Mumbai Indians (MI). This is a very important game for both the teams and Mumbai have a chance to get past their Punjab counterparts if they win the game by a big margin.
Mumbai Indians had a stunning game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in their previous game at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. They chased down 213 runs and it was the highest ever chase at this iconic ground.
Punjab too had a good game against Chennai in their previous game and would be oozing with confidence.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain choices for this PBKS vs MI game which will be taking place at Mohali:
1. Tim David (Mumbai Indians)
Mumbai Indians seem to finally have found an able replacement of their old warhorse, Tim David. He lit up the Wankhede sky and stadium with his power-hitting in MI’s previous game against RR.
He scored an unbeaten knock of 45* runs in just 14 balls and his knock was packed with 5 sixes and 2 fours. Tim David can most certainly be a good candidate for a vice-captain in this PBKS vs MI game.
2. Surya Kumar Yadav (Mumbai Indians)
All the talks about Surya Kumar Yadav being in poor form have been laid to rest by the man himself. Yadav has been playing beautifully and in the previous game, he scored a quick-fire knock of 55 runs in just 29 balls.
Making him your vice-captain can be a very smart move and it should yield you a few solid points in this PBKS vs MI game at Mohali.
3. Arshdeep Singh (Punjab Kings)
Punjab’s best bowler in IPL 2023 so far, Arshdeep Singh has so far bagged 15 wickets in just 9 games. The left-arm seamer has a good average of 19.67 and his toe-crushing yorkers make him one of the standout bowlers in IPL 2023.
The last time the duo met in IPL 2023, Arshdeep Singh had wreaked havoc in the last over. He took the wickets of Tilak Verma and Nehal Wadhera and had also broken the stumps with his raw pace while dismissing them.
You can most certainly make Arshdeep Singh the vice-captain in your fantasy team and he is sure to deliver the goods for Punjab and plus your fantasy team for this PBKS vs MI game.
