The 34th game of the season features Punjab based franchise take on a confidence-hit Mumbai Indians side. KXIP are set to return to the cricketing action after a lengthy period of 7 days and will be looking forward to move ahead of KKR in the table. MI have rather had a very poor season, winning just 2 out of their 8 fixtures and are nearly out of the tournament unless they win all remaining 6 games to have a very feeble chance to qualify.
This is the first game to be played at Indore, this season.
Indore has always been a best pitch to bat on and has recorded several highest scores in the International level.
The only T20I played here saw India smashing 260 runs in their 20 overs which included Rohit’s 118 and Rahul’s 89.
In an ODI played at this venue, Virender Sehwag registered his double ton as the Indian batsmen ripped off the Windies bowling and posted 418 on the board.
Evin Lewis (risky)
Evin Lewis is doubtful for today’s game after he missed the last game due to some fitness issues.
It is safe to go with high number of batsmen tonight considering the history of the pitch and the quality batsmen in both the sides.
The captain or powerplayer choice could also go to a batsmen for a safer side and if you can afford to take a risk, you can go with Krunal Pandya.
