Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings Betting Tips 28/09/2021

Teams Status

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians have now lost three in a row to start the UAE leg with, and sit bottom to last on the points table with just eight to their name – just as many as they finished the Indian leg with.

Through that trio of defeats, one thing has been constant: a failing batting signified by scores of 136, 155 and 111.

That last score of Nelson, in the defeat to RCB, was even more astonishing considering that Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock had given a 57-run opening stand. From that point on, chasing down 166 should have been a straightforward task but the rest of the Mumbai batters contributed to a dramatic collapse.

Mumbai got Hardik Pandya back in the last game but he looked out of sorts with the bat at number 7 and did not bowl.

With just four wins from 10 matches, now is the time to hit panic button for Mumbai.

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings have an identical record as Mumbai Indians but sit above them in the points table, thanks to their better net run rate.

They’ve played two during the UAE leg so far and won one but that last result should hardly be an indication of an upturn as it came against bottom dwellers Sunrisers Hyderabad, who could not even chase down a mere 126.

That said, they were also unlucky to lose the only game they lost as they let Rajasthan Royals defend four runs in the final over despite having set batsmen at the crease and a 120-run stand for the first wicket.

Punjab appear to be a top-heavy side with a beefed up top and middle order not supported by a chicken leg of a lower order.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Mumbai Indians to win @ 1.67

Both the teams have more or less the same amount of talent on the batting front. Some would give Mumbai the edge but that would only support the argument. On the bowling front though, there is a clear winner. Mumbai has Trent Boult, Jasprit Bumrah, Kieron Pollard and others. Punjab only has Mohammad Shami as their premier strike bowler. Therefore, we back Mumbai to snap their losing streak, show their winning pedigree and beat Punjab @ odds of 1.67 with Dafabet.

Tip: Rohit Sharma to score 50 runs – Yes @ 3.24

Sharma has had starts in both his outings of the UAE leg, contributing scores of 33 and 43 respectively, which followed his DNP in the leg opener. Sharma is one of those rare talents that can play longs innings in shorter formats. He’s missed out on half centuries twice. We think he won’t this time. The play here is to back Sharma to score a half century @ odds of 3.24 with 22Bet.

Conclusion

Surprisingly, Mumbai have lost both of their last two games to Punjab, which is a bit surprising considering their winning pedigree in the competition. Mumbai should snap that unwanted run in this fixture.
