Mumbai have won five matches in a row.
The 36th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Mumbai and Punjab at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. We have got the best Mumbai vs Punjab team prediction for today’s match.
Mumbai vs Punjab Match 36 is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
Mumbai won another game convincingly and this time it was Kolkata who were nothing in front of the quality they possess. They are back at the top of the table with twelve points in eight games. They restricted Kolkata below 150 and chased it comfortably with the help of an outstanding innings from Quinton de Kock. They have been the best team of the tournament by far. However, most of their matches are outside Abu Dhabi from now and that is the only thing which can bother them. There is much nothing wrong with their team and are expected to go with the same XI against Punjab.
On the other side, Punjab, finally, got a moment to cherish in their last game and they got back on track. They are still alive in the tournament and can be a very dangerous side. Their batters have been in top form with both the openers being the two leading run-scorers of the league. With Chris Gayle in, Punjab is a dangerous batting side. However, they would like to go with the same bowling line-up Shami in the powerplay and Jordan at the death. Murugan Ashwin and Ravi Bishnoi have been doing well together and are expected to continue to be in the XI.
