Today in the 33rd match of DLF IPL 2012, Kings XI Punjab will take on Mumbai Indians at PCA Mohali. Kings XI Punjab will be high on assurance after their recent win against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium and would be hoping for another win how to ascend the points table. On the other hand Mumbai who were humiliated by Punjab by 6 wickets at their home ground in the last match will be eying revenge. Mumbai who has won 3 out of 6 matches played so far will be expecting to get back to winning momentum and improve their point’s tally.
Kings XI Punjab have relied too much on Shaun Marsh and David Hussey and would be expecting that other players also get into the grove and start performing. On the other hand Mumbai Indians will be expecting that master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, Kieron Pollard and Rohit Sharma get back to their attacking form and help Mumbai win coming matches.
