Sharma and de Kock could get things off to a flying start in this match. The two have scored more than 450 runs between them. Watch out for some brilliant performances from Ishan Kishan and Surya Kumar Yadav. 

KXIP doesn't have a strong spin department. Spinners have a crucial role to play because the UAE pitches are quite big, and batsmen will be throwing caution to the winds. There is no other pacer to support Shami either.

MI vs KXIP who will win?

There are various cricket betting markets for every IPL match available on betting sites in India. Customers can strategise their betting after analyzing the form of both teams in advance. How each team has performed at the venue before, their head to head record, the nature of the pitch etc all matter a lot when it comes to predicting the winner of this MI vs KXIP match.

KXIP vs MI Betting Strategies

Who will Win

The Mumbai Indians will be heavy favourites to win this KXIP vs MI tie, considering their status as defending champions and also their recent form, i.e they have won 5 of their last 7 matches against Punjab, who haven't qualified for the knockout phase since 2014 now. Last season, KXIP finished 6th, and need to improve a lot to give Mumbai a good fight.

Top Batsman

In this market, a specific batsman's current form and strengths and weaknesses against different types of bowlers, his record against this particular opposition and his batting position in the order, all are key factors that can influence a user's choices.

MI Top Batsman

Both these teams possess some brilliant batsmen in their ranks. Mumbai Indians have the best opening pair in the league with Rohit Sharma and Quinton De Kock both giving blazing starts. Both are likely to be the top 2 favourites to be the top batsmen for MI, followed by the talented young wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan, the ever consistent Suryakumar Yadav, and the explosive all-rounders Keiron Pollard and the Pandya brothers.

KXIP Top Batsman

The Punjab Kings have a strong batting line up, with KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal forming a destructive pair up top. They have signed the ranked 1 T20 batsman in Dawid Malan as well, coupled with the presence of Chris Gayle. Nicholas Pooran completes a formidable batting line up for this MI vs KXIP match.

Top Bowler

In this market, the pitch conditions can play a very vital role as specific bowlers tend to benefit from certain kinds of pitches i.e. grassy, hard etc. A bowler's record against that particular opposition, the batsman he has got out most number of times as well as his current record and form, all play a vital role in determining who to bet on.

MI Top Bowler

Mumbai Indians have one of the best bowling attacks in the league, with the lethal pair of Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult, who have created havoc in the IPL and are the top 2 favourites for this market in every match. Then comes young spinner Rahul Chahar, and all-rounders Pollard and the Pandya brothers, who are as handy with the ball as they are with the bat.

KXIP Top Bowler

KXIP's bowling is led by Mohd Shami and the experienced Chris Jordan. Murugan Ashwin handles the spin department.

Player Betting

The player betting market is beneficial when you are confident on a particular player performing well. For example, Suryakumar Yadav to score more than 31.5 runs is a very attractive bet to place on this MI vs KXIP match as he is India's latest international batting star. Similarly, Jasprit Bumrah to take 2 or more wickets is also a very attractive bet as he is MI's best bowler.

Opening Partnership Betting

MI have one of the best opening pairings in the league, with Quinton De Kock and Rohit Sharma destroying teams at will. Both are exceptionally gifted batsmen who can also hit some huge shots, and have had several 50+ partnerships over the years.

KXIP have one of the most consistent opening pairs too, in KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, who gave them plenty of brilliant starts last season.
