PBKS vs MI: IPL 2024 team news

The two teams, eighth and ninth on the table, have four points from six games each, and desperately need a win to catch up with the top seven.

Punjab Kings will be without Shikhar Dhawan, and are likely to continue with Atharva Taide at the top. Jonny Bairstow has not been among the runs, especially at Mullanpur, and the management may consider replacing him with Rilee Rossouw to pair Taide.

Mumbai Indians may be tempted to replace Mohammad Nabi with a fast bowler at this venue, where seamers have averaged 22.78 in IPL 2024 and spinners 30.87. They have Nuwan Thushara, Luke Wood, and Kwena Maphaka to choose from.`
