After defeat in their first match, Mumbai have put together an impressive streak with victories over two top teams (Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad) and two strugglers (Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rising Pune Supergiant). Apart from coping with a very good MI bowling attack, KXIP’s biggest challenge at their second home of Indore on Thursday will be to keep a superb middle order, which has scored 441 runs in five matches while repeatedly finishing matches, quiet.

Punjab started the season with two wins which featured exciting unbeaten forties from their new skipper Glenn Maxwell, but after three consecutive defeats their skeptics will have plenty of reasons to write them off. Their descent started with an eight-wicket loss to KKR, followed by a 51-run loss to Delhi Daredevils and most recently a five-run defeat to SRH in which Manan Vohra’s exceptional 95 took them to the doorstep of victory.
