PBKS vs MI Dream11 Prediction: 17th Match, IPL 2021

Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians will play against each other in the 17th match of IPL 2021 at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. We will cover PBKS vs MI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of IPL 2021.

Punjab Kings:

Punjab Kings have been putting up a disappointing performance so far in this season as they have won only one out of the four matches and are currently at the bottom of the points table with two points. The batsmen failed to perform, and as a result, they lost the last match by nine wickets.

The opening pair KL Rahul and Mayan Agarwal have performed well only in one of the matches. Either one of them is getting out early. KL Rahul has performed well in a couple of matches, so this has been the case with Agarwal.

Except for one match, Gayle has also not been up to the mark in this season.

In middle-order, Nicholas Pooran has been struggling very much and has been out for a duck thrice in four matches. Deepak Hooda and Sharukh Khan are doing a good job and trying to help the team get out of tough situations. Moises Henriques and Fabian Allen did not score much in their first match of the season.

The bowlers were brilliant in the first two matches but have struggled in the last couple of games. Only Fabian Allen managed to pick up a wicket in the previous game. Arshdeep Singh has also put up some good performances so far in this season. The remaining bowlers have either struggled to pick up wickets or conceded a lot of runs.

Punjab Kings have been making changes in every match and have not been able to find the correct playing XI. They need to figure it out very soon as they cannot afford to keep losing games.

Mumbai Indians:

Mumbai Indians have performed decently so far as they have won two out of the four games so far and are currently at the 4th position on the points table with four points. They had to face disappointment in the last match as they lost by six wickets.

In the three matches played by Quinton de Kock so far, he has batted well only in one of the matches. Rohit Sharma is giving a good start, but he needs to stay a little longer at the crease and also missed his fifty by just six runs in the last match. At No.3, Surya Kumar Yadav has been batting aggressively, but he has not played a big inning.

The problems with middle-order are persisting for MI as Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, and Krunal Pandya are struggling to score runs. Except for one match, Kieron Pollard has also not scored much so far in this season.

The bowling unit is in very good form and giving hope for the fans in every match that they could win it. Rahul Chahar has been the consistent wicket-taker so far; Trent Boult has also been bowling well but went wicketless in the last match. Jasprit Bumrah is struggling to pick up wickets this season.

Mumbai Indians need to work on their middle-order by changing the batting order or making some replacements; else, it will be very tough for them to win the matches.
