Mumbai Indians (MI) will play host to the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in match 31 of the Indian Premier League at Wankhede Stadium on Saturday night.

After a slow start to the campaign which featured two losses, MI have won their past three matches to see them climb up the points table.

PBKS have yet to find consistency in season 2023 and will be hoping to bounce back after they were well beaten by RCB last time out.

We take a look at where to find value in this encounter below.

MI vs PBKS team news

MI have no major injury concerns in their squad and are likely to field an unchanged XI. However, Jofra Archer might still be unfit to make the squad.

PBKS skipper Shikhar Dhawan remains doubtful for the clash due to the shoulder injury that he suffered against GT.

MI vs PBKS match prediction

After a tricky start, MI appear to be hitting their straps and, with a power-packed batting lineup, that’s bad news for opposition teams.

Two tight victories over DC and KKR helped kickstart their season before they flexed their muscle against SRH in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

Should PBKS pacemen Arshdeep Singh and Sam Curran manage to contain MI’s firepower, they may stand a chance, but we expect the home side’s batting depth to be the difference.

Prediction: MI to win

MI vs PBKS best bet

  • Pick: Team with top bowler (PBKS)
  • Odds: 1.94 (Dafabet)

While they may be out-gunned on paper in the batting department, PBKS look to have the edge with the ball.

Arshdeep Singh and Nathan Ellis are coming off wicket-taking performances and Sam Curran and Rahul Chahar know how to keep it tight.

We expect one of this contingent to have a good night.

MI vs PBKS outside bet

  • Pick: To score 50 – Rohit Sharma
  • Odds: 3.55 (Dafabet)

The MI opener has been performing solidly without standing out so far this season.

A score of 65 is doing the heavy lifting for his total of 135 from five innings and he’ll be keen to stamp himself on the 2023 tournament with a big performance here.

If Rohit can get going like we know he can, look out.
