Preview for KXIP vs MI MyTeam11 contest
Kings XI Punjab endured torrid time against Rajasthan Royals. They’ll feel like they ended up losing a match which they should’ve won. A late Rahul Tewatia cameo who hit 5 sixes in the penultimate over of the match, took the game away from the clutches of Kings XI Punjab.
After their win against KKR, Mumbai Indians’ batting order collapsed against RCB. When all hope was about to fade away, Kieron Pollard and a young man called Ishan Kishan stepped up and almost, almost secured the win. In the end, they managed a Super Over but Navdeep Saini’s bowling made sure RCB would win the game.
Both sides will try to move on from their heartbreaking losses in the previous match.

KXIP vs MI MyTeam11 Top Picks
Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma was at his very best against Kolkata Knight Riders. He scored 80 runs in just 54 deliveries and looked unstoppable. He looked set to go all the way and make a ton but couldn’t keep up in the latter half of the match because of fitness concerns.
Ishan Kishan: Ishan Kishan came agonisingly close to a century in the last match. Even when the likes of Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock faltered around him, Kishan stood up and delivered. Requiring 5 runs off the last two balls, he tried to hit a six but was caught and dismissed for 99 runs.
KL Rahul: KL Rahul has really come into his own in this tournament and his batting has been a treat to watch. After his unbeaten knock of 132 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore, he scored 69 off 54 deliveries against Rajasthan.
Mayank Agarwal: Along with KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal forms a formidable duo. He got his century in the previous match against Rajasthan Royals. He also scored 89 runs in the opening match.
