Mumbai Indians playing 11 vs Punjab Kings – IPL 2024, match 33

Hardik Pandya-Roiht Sharma

Mumbai Indians (MI) take on Punjab Kings (PBKS) in match 33 of IPL 2024 at Mullanpur. This is an away game for them after their previous home loss against CSK.

Mumbai Indians bowlers had a tough game against the Chennai Super Kings in the previous game. They managed to take only four wickets against CSK and the mighty Jasprit Bumrah remained wicketless.

There were many talking points about Mumbai Indians’ previous defeat, but none more important than Hardik Pandya’s captaincy. He chose to bowl in the final against one MS Dhoni who went against him when he was taken for 20 runs, which turned out to be the difference in the end.

Experts have already started giving their opinion on Hardik’s captaincy. He also left the team with the bat when he needed to bat with Rohit Sharma. MI’s batting, barring Rohit’s ton, was a disappointment. In this article, we take a look at MI’s XI for their match against PBKS.

Mumbai Indians playing 11 vs Punjab Kings – IPL 2024, match 33

Rohit Sharma

Rohit just went on an unbeaten run against CSk which went in vain. It was his second in the IPL. His form is key for Mumbai Indians for the rest of the season.

Ishan Kishan (WK)

Kishan will open the batting with Rohit. He scored 23 off 15 balls and could not continue any further. He has given MI quick starts but failed against CSK.

Suryakumar Yadav

SKY will be located at three. After his fifty against DC, he scored a duck in the next game against Chennai Super Kings. He missed the first games due to injury.

tilak varma

The left-hander will be placed at number four. He scored 31 off 20 balls. Tilak had a good start to his IPL career with Mumbai Indians with two 350+ seasons. He will need a score in the next match.

Hardik Pandya (C)

Hardik Pandya will enter at five. He scored two in the last match against CSK. He was expensive with the ball in 43 of his three overs, including 20 ones.

Tim David

David scored 45 in the match against Delhi Capitals, which is his highest score this season. Against CSK he scored 13 for five. He will come in at six.

rosemary shepherd

Shepherd will be in at seven. This also shows Mumbai’s batting depth this season. Shepherd is an all-rounder and equally good with the ball.

Muhammad the Prophet

Nabi will come in at eight. He scored only four in the last game. He bowled a good spell of 3/19 in a match in which CSK scored over 200 runs.

jasprit bumrah

Bumrah will come in at nine. He ran out of ground in the previous match. So far this season, he has picked 10 wickets in six games. Against CSK he gave 4/27.

Geraldine Coetzee

Coetzee will be ranked 10. He has taken nine wickets with a best score of 4/34. Against CSK he got 1/35. The South African pacer has had the backing of the MI team management.

Piyush Chawla

Chawla will conclude with the Mumbai Indians playing XI. He was not included in the starting eleven against CSK, but he should play in the next match.

Impact Submarine: Akash Madhwal

Mumbai could use Akash Madwal in the role of Impact Sub for their match against Punjab Kings. He made 37 from his three overs against CSK.
