IPL 2023: PBKS vs MI, Match Prediction and more details

IPL returns to Mohali to host the PBKS vs MI clash. PBKS has 10 points in 9 games while Mumbai Indians have 8 points in 8 games.

Punjab Kings will come into this clash with a win over Chennai Super Kings that too in their home. While Mumbai Indians defeated a strong Rajasthan Royals in the 1000th match of the Indian Premier League. Here is all you need to know before the PBKS vs MI clash.

The hosts Punjab Kings will be aware of their poor home record. The Punjab team has played 4 matches at Mohali and has been on the losing side thrice. They have lost their last three home games against GT, RCB and LSG. They have been in great form with the bat and almost every player has contributed with the bat in the last three games. They have scored more than 200 runs three times in a row in their last three games. 

Mumbai Indians who defeated Rajasthan Royals in their previous encounter too found some good batting form. The MI camp would want more contributions from their openers Rohit Sharma and specially Ishan Kishan who is yet to play a significant knock for the five-time champions.
