Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings take on each other in match 42 of IPL 2021 in Abu Dhabi in the second of the two games on Tuesday. PBKS are placed on the fifth position while MI are langushing at the seventh position after their recent loss to RoyalChallengers Bangalore. It is the 11th game for both teams and both are in a must-win situation with the league nearing its final phase.
Mumbai Indians were outplayed in their last game by RCB. They lost the game by 54 runs chasing 166 to win. Lack of consistent run-scoring from Rohit Sharma and the inconsistent middle-order has hurt Mumbai’s chances heavily this season. They have to win all their remaining games to give themselves the best chance of making it to the playoffs.
Rohit Sharma Key For MI

Punjab Kings, on the other end, have been mercurial and vulnerable at the same time. They lost their first two games and beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last game to keep themselves alive in the playoffs hunt. However, with Mumbai as their opposition, they have a tough task on their hands of beating the defending champions.

Chennai Super Kings successfully defended against KKR in the last game at this venue. However, with the pitch assisting the spinners more than the seamers, the captain winning the toss would ideally like to set the score and defend it in the second half with chasing proving increasingly difficult.
