PBKS vs MI Match Preview

Punjab Kings will take on Mumbai Indians in the 33rd match of the IPL 2024. The match is set to take place at PBKS’ new home ground Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Chandigarh.

PBKS is failing in its plans once again and they are having yet another disappointing season. After two back to back defeats they have dropped down to the lower tier of the points table. In 6 fixtures, PBKS has managed to win just 2.

MI tried to pick themselves up with two victories after starting the season with three straight defeats. Just when they thought of climbing up the table with the momentum CSK spoiled their party and handed them a defeat at home ground Wankhede.

Let’s take a look at the dream11 team prediction as PBKS and MI meet each other for the first and only time in the IPL 2024.

Top Fantasy Picks – All Rounders, Batsman, Bowlers, Wicket Keepers

Wicket-Keepers Ishan Kishan
Batters Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav (c), Shashank Singh
All-Rounders Hardik Pandya, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone (vc)
Bowlers Jasprit Bumrah, Kagiso Rabada, Arshdeep Singh, Gerald Coetzee

Top Batsman Picks – PBKS vs MI Dream11

  • Surykumar Yadav – Suryakumar got out for a duck in the last match but he looked in brilliant touch in the match before that when he smashed a quick half-century. We are backing him to go for another big knock in this match.
  • Rohit Sharma – Rohit Sharma smashed a century after 12 years in the IPL in the last game against CSK. He is in brilliant form and has been part of the dream team in the last 3 matches. He is the leading run scorer for MI with 261 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of 167.30.
  • Liam Livingstone – Livingstone looks in good touch and he has scored 104 runs in 4 matches at an impressive strike rate of 160. He has been part of the dream team in the 3 out of 4 matches he has played. In the last head to head against MI in 2023, Livingstone scored a brilliant 82 off 42 deliveries.

Top Bowler Picks – PBKS vs MI Dream11

  • Kagiso Rabada – Rabada has been in the dream team in the last 3 matches which shows his current form. He has taken 9 wickets in 6 matches at a strike rate of 16.0. Rabada has read this new ground pretty well and is able to pick wickets here.
  • Gerald Coetzee – Coetzee can prove to be dangerous on this surface like his South African teammate Kagiso Rabada. Coetzee is in good form with 9 wickets in 6 matches at a strike rate of 15.0.
  • Jasprit Bumrah – Bumrah picked a 5-wicket haul against RCB and looked like he got back into form but then went wicketless in the next game against CSK. Bumrah is expected to pick wickets on this track which favours the pace bowlers.

Top Picks for Captain and Vice Captain – PBKS vs MI Dream11

  • Dream11 Captain Options – Suryakumar Yadav, Liam Livingstone
  • Dream11 Vice Captain Options – Sam Curran, Jasprit Bumrah

Players To Avoid – PBKS vs MI Dream11

  • Prabhsimran Singh – Prabhsimran is not able to perform like the last 2 seasons. He looks out of form and needs to back himself. He has scored 119 runs so far but this is not up to the mark as per his previous outings. In the last 2 matches his fantasy points were 15 and 9. We are keeping him out of fantasy teams for this match.
  • Mohammad Nabi – The Afghan all-rounder was roped in by MI in the 2024 auction. He has played 3 games so far in which he scored 4 runs and has not picked a wicket in 6 overs. He might get replaced for the next match but you can certainly keep him out of the fantasy teams in this match.
