After registering thrilling victories in their previous games, Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians will square off at the Wankhede Stadium tonight. KXIP will look to join the Chennai Super Kings at the top of the table with another win, while the hosts will be determined to bring their IPL campaign back on track with their third win on the trot. Both sides have been in decent form and have played some splendid cricket so far in this tournament.  

Mumbai Indians made a terrific comeback in their previous matches by bundling out the Sunrisers Hyderabad for just 96 runs. After two consecutive victories, the Blue Army must be beaming with confidence when they host the Punjab franchise. Rohit Sharma has led his team from the front in this campaign, but his batting woes continue to haunt MI. Joseph Alzarri made a dream debut against SRH and managed the best bowling figures in IPL history (6-12). The hosts would be eyeing a similarly dominant performance when they take on the Kings XI Punjab. 

KXIP have started the tournament in good fashion and have already established themselves as strong playoff contenders. Ravichandran Ashwin and company registered an emphatic win against the Sunrisers in their previous encounter to take them into the top half of the points table. With four wins and a couple of defeats in their six outings, Kings XI Punjab are comfortably sitting at the third position in the eight-team league. Their batting line-up has been stable, while there is scope for improvement on the bowling front. KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal have been consistently batting well for the team, along with Sarfaraz Khan and Chris Gayle.
