Mumbai is expected to win this match.
The 36th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Mumbai and Punjab at Dubai International Stadium.
This game 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 VIP.
It will be the second time in this tournament that Mumbai will find themselves pitted against Punjab in this season of the Indian T20 League. In their previous match, Mumbai got the upper hand, and defeated the team from Punjab by a sizeable margin of 48 runs. So, this would give the four-time champions a psychological advantage over their opponents in this match.
Punjab are pegged at the bottom of the points table and with just 4 points in their bag. And, on the other hand, Mumbai are soaring high at the top of the points table, having won 6 out of the 8 matches they have played. This makes it interesting to see if Punjab will be able to go past the might of Mumbai in this match.
