IPL 2021, PBKS vs MI Live Cricket Score Online: Punjab win toss, opt to bowl first

IPL 2021 Live Score, PBKS vs MI Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: Punjab Kings will be hoping to break their three-match losing streak when they take on Mumbai Indians in Chennai on Friday.

IPL 2021, PBKS vs MI Live Cricket Match Score Online Updates: Punjab Kings (PBKS) will take on defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) in the ongoing IPL 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday.

Under the leadership of KL Rahul, PBKS were off to a promising start to the campaign. But now, they are coming into this contest on the back of three successive defeats, languishing in the bottom half of the table. On the other hand, MI will look to get back to winning ways after failing to beat DC in their last encounter. The Rohit Sharma-led unit would aim to shrug off their middle-order inconsistencies and register their third win of the season. The five-time champions are currently fourth on the points table.

IPL 2021, PBKS vs MI Live Score Updates:

Punjab Kings have won the toss and have opted to field.

Punjab Kings’ formidable batting unit hasn’t hit the straps, save for KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal and the bowling has been pedestrian. Chris Gayle has not been able to boss over proceedings while Nicholas Pooran, expected to provide the big shots in the middle, has come a cropper so far. Three straight losses would have definitely dented their morale and they need to recover quickly to keep their play-off hopes alive. Punjab might bring in Ravi Bishnoi in place of Murugan Ashwin and fit in Chris Jordan in the XI.

Punjab Kings (Probable XI): KL Rahul (c/wk), Mayank Agarwal, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Deepak Hooda, Moises Henriques, Shahrukh Khan, Fabian Allen, M Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, Arshdeep Singh

Mumbai Indians (Probable XI): Quinton de Kock (wk), Rohit Sharma (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Jayant Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Trent Boult

The two teams have played each other 28 times where MI holds an upper hand with 16 wins as compared to PBKS’ 12. They last faced each other during IPL 2020 where the KL Rahul-led side beat the eventual champions after playing two super-overs.

Hello and welcome to the live commentary of the IPL 2021 contest between Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians. Rohit Sharma and his men have won just two of their four opening matches. Can the KL Rahul-led unit put a stop to their losing streak? Stay tuned!
