In the 13 match of Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL) Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will take on defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) on Thursday, October first at Sheikh Zayed Stadium Abu Dhabi.
KXIP Today Match Predicted
Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) has played three matches so far in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL) and won only one but they inspired the audience with their fantastic batting skills.
Their openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal performed superbly and are currently the top run-scorers in the ongoing IPL 2020 with 222 and 221 runs respectively.
KL Rahul also scored the first century of the IPL 2020. But the IPL fans are missing the presence of Chris Gayle on the field. The big hitter Chris Gayle has not played any single game for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) so far. With the match against Rohit Sharma led army, the questions on Chris Gayle’s return arose again. But it looks like, the Kings XI Punjab will go with the same combination against MI they have been using for the previous games.
Mumbai Indians Today Match Expectation
On the other side of the picture, Mumbai Indians (MI) are having a hard time in IPL 2020.
They have played three matches and won only one and sit at the 6th position on the IPL Points Table.
Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock are performing ordinary at the top. The management should give Chriss Lynn a try as an opener. Although, today is the battle of batting artists.
KL Rahul from KXIP and Rohit Sharma from MI will amaze the IPL fans at Sheikh Zayed Stadium Abu Dhabi.
KXIP vs MI Head to Head
