Guwahati: Both Punjab Kings (PBKS) and Mumbai Indians (MI) will look to end the Chennai leg of their IPL 2021 campaign on a high when they take on each other on Friday.
PBKS are in the midst of a three-game losing streak, with their batsmen struggling to adapt to the Chepauk wicket. After playing at the batting-friendly Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, the PBKS batsmen couldn’t adjust to the slow wicket and were bundled out for 120 in their last outing against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Although their bowlers put in a decent fight, SRH cruised to a nine-wicket win, courtesy of Jonny Bairstow’s gritty fifty.
It would be PBKS’ last game in Chennai before they move to Ahmedabad. KL Rahul and co. can go level on points with Mumbai Indians (MI) if they beat the defending champions tonight.
