In their respective previous matches, both teams showcased their ability to chase down daunting totals of 200 runs. Today, the primary goal for both Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians would be to secure a victory and stay in contention for a spot in the playoffs.

In their previous encounter, Punjab Kings managed to edge out Mumbai Indians in a thrilling last-over contest, thanks in large part to the impressive performance of Arshdeep Singh in the death overs. In today's reverse fixture at Mohali, it remains to be seen whether Rohit Sharma and his team can exact revenge for their earlier defeat.

Mumbai Indians are currently positioned at the 7th spot in the points table with a record of four victories and four defeats. In their previous match against Rajasthan, they successfully chased down a colossal target of 213 runs. Tim David's three consecutive sixes and Suryakumar's 55-run knock played a crucial role in their triumph. After registering a record-breaking chase victory, Mumbai is likely to stick with the same playing eleven. Although their batting depth has won them most of their games, their bowling has been a significant concern. Mumbai Indians have the worst economy rate during the death overs among all the teams in the tournament. Moreover, they have picked the least number of wickets in Powerplay. The only positive aspect in their bowling department is Piyush Chawla, who has emerged as the team's leading wicket-taker. The entire team is optimistic and hoping for a better performance from their bowling unit in today's match.

Probable XI:

Rohit, Ishan, Green, Surya, Tilak, Tim David, Arshad, Karthikeya, Chawla, Jofra, Meredith/Behrendroff

On the flip side, Punjab Kings have managed to secure victories in five out of their nine games so far, placing them in sixth position on the points table. In their previous match, they successfully chased down a daunting target of 201 runs against Chennai Super Kings, with Sikander Raza hitting a last-ball shot to seal the game for PBKS. Despite having an equal head-to-head record against Mumbai Indians, Punjab have lost their previous three matches at their home ground in Mohali. The opening batters of Punjab have struggled to score runs consistently and will be hoping to make a substantial contribution in today's clash. However, the inclusion of Dhawan and Livingstone has proven to be a winning formula for the Punjab team and they will look to continue that trend. Given the conditions at Mohali, the Rabada-Arshdeep duo is expected to be effective on this venue and gain a slight home advantage over the MI team.

Probable XI :

Prabhsimran, Dhawan, Livingstone, Sikandar, Sam, Jitesh, Shahrukh, Harpreet, Rabada, R Chahar, Arshdeep
