IPL Match 33 Prediction: High Scoring Expected In PK vs MI

The IPL Match 33 Prediction will be a PK vs MI classic where Punjab will host five time champions Mumbai in Chandigarh on Thursday (April 18). It has always been a high-scoring contest whenever these two teams have come against each other.

IPL Match 33 Prediction: PK vs MI

Scores over 200 have been a standard norm, and both teams love to chase the totals courtesy of their powerful batting depth. The IPL stats between these two sides have been very close, having played 31 times, and Mumbai edged it narrowly with 16 wins compared to Punjab's 15.

Mumbai Indians have chased scores of over 200 five times, whereas the Men in Red have touched this feat six times, the most by any franchise in IPL.

With the IPL getting into more intense games, every game's result must impact the points table, and these two teams are in the middle of the points table.

IPL Match 33 Prediction: Dhawan's Form A Concern for Punjab

In the IPL Match 33 Prediction, Shikhar Dhawan will be captaining the Kings squad. He is always known for adding stability at the top with his batting due to risk-free cricket, consistent scores, and creating a platform for the batters coming later down the order.

IPL Match 33 Prediction: Dhawan’s Form A Concern for Punjab

PBKS expects the same from him because their middle order is so explosive that if given a proper foundation, they can do crazy stuff.

The strike rate was always a point of discussion whenever the left-hander was batting, and the same is the case here. 

Having scored 152 runs in five innings at a strike rate of 125, these are the numbers that Dhawan would never like to be associated with.

The inconsistency in batting is one reason the King squad is struggling to put up better shows with the bat.

One primary reason behind Dhawan's failure could be a lack of practice at a competitive level throughout the year, as he is not a part of the Indian team anymore and hardly plays domestic matches.

We all know IPL is not an easy gravy; it tests the hell out of everyone where the best is in front of the best, and if you are not practiced enough, it comes out hard on you.

IPL Match 33 Prediction: Players To Watch Out in Punjab, Mumbai Camps

The players mentioned below will be seen playing important roles for their sides.

Rohit Sharma

Mumbai Indians are coming into this contest on the back of a defeat from their arch-rivals Chennai where the valiant effort of Rohit Sharma went in vain as the hosts failed to chase a target of 207.

Rohit Sharma

The Wankhede was witnessed in an exhibition of Hitman's masterclass, which had a terrific hundred in a losing cause.

There is a high possibility that the former Mumbai Indians captain will carry his excellent form in the coming game and lay a good foundation for the team's victory.

The Indian captain achieved the sensational landmark of being the only player from India to score 500 sixes in T20 cricket, which shows the caliber of the man and the ability to clear the boundary with ease.

In the first six games, the right-hander scored over 250 runs in the competition and scored at a very commendable strike, setting the tone in the first six overs.

There is always no doubt about the ability and talent of a hitman and whatever he has done over the years in national colors.

Akash Madhwal

Last year, Akash Madhwal was the rising cricketer in the IPL who emerged through the ranks of Mumbai Indians. He was the solely dependent fast bowling option for them without Jasprit Bumrah.

So far, This year has been a struggle for him, though he has played much of his cricket at Wankhede Stadium, the stadium which leaves very little for the bowlers.

In the four matches he has played, he has only taken three wickets, and his economy is on the higher side with almost touching 11, which is not something Mumbai expects him to do.

He is a skiddy bowler who likes to rush the batsman with his pace and is much quicker than he looks.

The right arm quick is believed to be handy against the home side, adding a sense of stability for the visitors who depend solely on Bumrah with the ball. Most people like taking him on, but he is skiddy and bowls at suitable lengths.

He would be keen to add more weapons to his armory and needs a good game in this year's IPL to regain his confidence, which needs to be added somewhere.

IPL Match 33 Prediction: Match Prediction For PK vs MI

In the IPL Match 33 Prediction, Mumbai will be locking horns with Punjab, and both teams tasted the medicine of defeat in their last games, so they need to get things back in control quickly.

Mumbai failed to chase a target against their arch-rival Chennai, whereas Punjab could not defend against the Royals of Rajasthan.

In combination with assessing conditions, the visitors will be more likely to get two points in this game.

Though their batting failed to chase a target in the last game, the talent and potential in that group are still undeniable.

Punjab also has some issues with their captain not striking it well enough and keeping things complex for other batters.

These are things that good teams exploit on opposing sides and take the added advantage of. The Men in Blue is good at finding loopholes in any opposition as their strategic team is very intelligent and active.

The ideal possibility for the visitors is to bat second, and knowing what they are chasing as they bat pretty deep allows the top-order batters to play with more freedom.

What always helps Mumbai whenever they are stuck in crunch situations is their mindset, as they have won this Championship five times, the joint most with CSK.

There is a different way of taking things for a team that has done it five times, which is a mind-blowing effort. This added skill would always put Mumbai ahead of their opponents in big games.
