MI vs PBKS Dream11 Prediction: The Mumbai Indians are under the threat of missing the IPL 2021 play-off berth unless the defending champions pull off something extraordinary in the remaining four matches.
And they need to start that on Tuesday (September 28) against Punjab Kings under KL Rahul. Both have 8 points from 10 matches but a better net run rate has placed Kings on 5th and Mumbai on 7th in the IPL 2021 points table.
The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai will need a big effort from faltering middle order for that and can they do that against a confident Kings?
