Four-time champions Mumbai Indians are looking to win five matches in a row, but the return of Chris Gayle will avoid complacency against Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday. The rivalry has aroused new enthusiasm. A win would put Mumbai very close to the playoffs and Punjab could be eliminated from the race with another defeat. Mumbai have been able to overcome the challenges of the opposing teams with their tough batting and deadly bowling. In the previous match, he defeated Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by eight wickets.
Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, are at the bottom of the points table despite scoring the most runs in the tournament with two batsmen, captain KL Rahul (3387) and Mayank Agarwal (337). The problem with Punjab is that when its batsmen walk, the bowlers do not. It is another matter that the return of West Indies attacking batsman Gayle has boosted the team’s morale. Gayle made 533 off 44 balls in his first match, including five sixes, which helped Punjab beat Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli. Let’s see how both the teams can be playing XI in this IPL match-
