Punjab playing 11 today match might look like this:
Mumbai playing 11 today might look like this:
Both the teams are likely to field the same players in today match playing 11.
The right-hand batsman provides important support to the middle-order of the Punjab team. He has played the role of a finisher perfectly throughout the series.
He will again be a vital part of Punjab’s batting lineup.
Chris Gayle is the X-factor for the Punjab team. Punjab has provided him the number three position in the lineup. It helps Gayle to avoid the newer ball.
We have not seen much of fireworks from the bat of Gayle. This is the reason why he becomes an important player in today’s game. His unpredictable nature is something that creates worries for any team.
Kieron Pollard is the highest run-getter for Mumbai in Punjab vs Mumbai games. He also has played the most number of matches against Punjab.
His slow balls are an important weapon in today’s game on the Chepauk cricket pitch. Also, his ability to finish games makes him the most important player for Mumbai.
Krunal Pandya has bowled with a perfect line and length in this season. His spell of 4-13-1 against Kolkata became the reason for Mumbai’s win. He bowled 13 dot balls in that game.
He will be an important player for Mumbai in this match because of the variations that he can bring to the table.

Punjab and Mumbai are going to play this match at the Chepauk stadium. The pitch at the Chepauk has always supported spinners.
The batting in the second half gets difficult because the pitch starts breaking. This is what we all have observed till now.
Chepauk’s pitch is expected to behave in the same way. Batting will become a bit difficult in the latter half of the game for the teams.
Spinners and slow bowlers are likely to perform well for their teams.
Today’s weather report predicts that the temperature is expected to remain between 27°C – 35°C. The cloud cover will be around 76%.
Today weather report also predicts that the probability of precipitation is around 6%.
Tomorrow weather report suggests that the weather will remain the same in the city.
Toss will be an important aspect of today’s game. The team winning the toss will like to bat first and use all the help that the pitch might provide.
But Mumbai failed to defend a total against Delhi in the last game. The score in hand was also very less. There was a lot of dew in the second half of the game and that made it difficult for bowlers to grip the ball.
All these factors will play a big role in today’s game.
Mumbai has already lost the last game and it will be the last game for Mumbai at the Chepauk.
Mumbai will next move to Delhi to play the next few games. Similar is the case for Punjab, who will move to Ahmedabad to play the next few games.
The match prediction today from our end is that Mumbai might win this Punjab vs Mumbai game.
