IPL Fantasy League: Tips for Match 13 : Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians

It’s Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) vs Mumbai Indians (MI) tonight at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium! Defending champions Mumbai Indians have started their Indian Premier League season with a loss against Chennai Super Kings. Then, they managed to win their next match (somehow) but lost the third match even after superb innings from Ishan Kishan and Pollard. On the other hand, Punjab is just plain unlucky in the IPL. They lost their first match with one wrong decision, and when they made a huge score of 223 runs against Rajasthan Royals. Tewatia, Sanju, and Smith successfully chased the score with a once-in-a-lifetime innings and finished the match with 3 balls to spare. With that in mind, KXIP will be baying for blood today, making this a spicy encounter. Here’s how we think your team should look:

Kreeda Scout’s Ideal IPL Fantasy League XI for Match 13, KXIP vs MI:

  1. KL Rahul
  2. Quinton de Kock
  3. Rohit Sharma
  4. Mayank Agarwal
  5. Kieron Pollard
  6. Trent Boult
  7. Mohammed Shami
  8. Suryakumar Yadav
  9. Ravi Bishnoi
  10. Sheldon Cottrell
  11. Murugan Ashwin

The Scout Says:

Mumbai has a superb lineup of batsmen with Hitman Rohit, Kieron Pollard, and big-hitter Pandya, ably aided by youngster Ishan Kishan. However, the bowlers of Mumbai have consistently failed to make an impact on the ground. Boom-Boom Bumrah failed to take wickets in crucial moments and Pattinson’s performance has just not been up to the mark.

For KXIP, this could be the right time to bring the Gayle storm to the ground.

KL Rahul & Rohit Sharma are two players who must be in your team because of their performances. Mayank and Pollard are back in form and we can expect some great innings from them tonight.  Boult and Shami are consistent wicket-takers for their respective teams.

Today’s pitch will be helpful for bowlers and a score of 180 may be a defendable score for the team batting first.
