The five-time Indian Playerzpot League champions Mumbai will take on the Punjab team in match no. 31 at the Wankhede Stadium on April 22 in Mumbai. R. Sharma’s Paltan is back on track with three consecutive wins and will be eyeing yet another at home against the Punjab side, who are losing their ground after a good start to the season.

Speaking of the table standings of both the teams, Mumbai is in the No. 6 spot just above Punjab who are sitting on No.7. Notably both the teams have three wins each with 6 points to their name, and only the net run rate splitting them apart. The Blues are high in spirit with notable individuals now stepping up their game, with the top team losing their hold on the recent games Mumbai might sneak right behind them with a win and solid 2 points.

Players to watch out for

C. Green (Mumbai)

The most expensive purchase made by Mumbai, the 24-year-old all-rounder has slowly picked up the pace of the ever-so-demanding T20 League. It was tough for the young all-rounder to make any significant impact in the early days but now he has started to come out of his shell. Known for his ability with the bat and ball, in the win vs Hyderabad he smashed a splendid 64 off 40 deliveries thus playing a vital knock. With 3 wickets to his name, he would want to have a few more to his name.

I. Kishan (Mumbai)

The young Indian opener has had to do some soul-searching in the initial phase of the tournament but now has returned to his former self. With scores of 31, 58, and, 38 he is making headways in providing a blistering start to the batting innings which is then followed well by the likes of T. Verma and C. Green. However, I. Kishan would know very well that he is far from hitting his peak and there is room for improvement, the home game against Punjab could serve as a catalyst for his return back to form with a big knock.

J. Behrendorff (Mumbai)

The Mumbai team has been marred by injury concerns and this has impacted their bowling attack. Thankfully they did bag the Australian pacer Behrendorff at the auction and he is paying back big time. With 6 wickets in 5 games so far he is the team’s leading wicket-taker. Time and again he has come in with clutch moments for the Blues this season and similar attributes will be expected of him in the next game.

S. Curran (Punjab)

Owning up to his reputation as the league’s most expensive player he has now started to make a real impact with Punjab. The spell against Lucknow was proof of that, he took out the big guns from the Lucknow team who were looking out to finish strong. In a season, where A. Singh and K. Rabad are yet to hit their peak and in such a situation having Curran is indeed a luxury that Punjab will be looking to take full advantage of.
