Mumbai Indians (MI) after their convincing win over Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the previous game, would be brimming with confidence. Cameron Green and Surya Kumar Yadav have played well in the last couple of matches and they would be key players in this MI vs PBKS game.
Punjab would be hoping to exorcise the ghosts of their loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the previous game. The team is missing the services of their skipper Shikhar Dhawan as he is down with an injury.
The match will be played at the iconic Wankhede Stadium and the MI team would be wanting to give the perfect birthday gift to Sachin Tendulkar, whose birthday is on 24th April 2023.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s MI vs PBKS game:
1. Cameron Green (Mumbai Indians)
Mumbai Indians (MI) would be hoping that their star all-rounder Cameron Green comes out trumps in this IPL 2023 game versus Punjab Kings.
In the previous game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), the Australian young and dynamic all-rounder scored a well-rounded fifty and his knock exuded class and maturity. He bagged the player of the match award for his knock of 60* runs and also because he took a wicket.
2. Sam Curran (Punjab Kings)
Even though Punjab Kings’ all-rounder Sam Curran has blown hot and cold in IPL 2023, he is Punjab’s best bet so far. Sam Curran has been phenomenal with the ball and with the bat in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 and he has all the potential to play well.
The stand-in-skipper of Punjab would be hoping to deliver the goods for Punjab in this game at the Wankhede.
3. Piyush Chawla (Mumbai Indians)
They say that “Old is Gold” and veteran spinner Piyush Chawla has been living up to this statement. He has been Mumbai’s prime spinner and the potent weapon of skipper Rohit Sharma in this IPL.
In 5 games so far, Chawla has bagged 7 wickets and has been a huge force to reckon with in the spin bowling department of Mumbai Indians.
