Mumbai Indians are back home for a match today against Kings XI Punjab. This match can't be termed as a mismatch because although Mumbai Indians have been impressive and are in the first half of the points tally, but the stats for Punjab are impressive too.
Punjab has played only 6 matches whereas other teams have played 8 or more than that. So Punjab in the second half of the points tally is not an issue. One or two wins will take them in top 3.
Mumbai Indians have been professionally perfect taking each game as if they want to win all of them. The loss against Rajasthan Royals in the last match is something they would prefer to forget. Recent forms show that MI has won 4 out of 5 whereas KXIP have won 3 out of 5. Not a large difference.
We will also observe a competition between two batsmen who are in the race of Orange Cap. They are Sachin Tendulkar and Paul Valthaty.
