The Mumbai Indians are all but certain to make the Playoffs with six wins out of eight already. Apart from being in the top two for most part, they also have the best net run rate. Mumbai have now won five matches in a row and seem like having no apparent weakness. Their openers and middle order have been among runs, and their bowlers have delivered each time. It won't be surprising if they bag two more points to push their chances further.

Contrarily, the Kings XI Punjab have been the most struggling team so far: just two wins out of eight have kept them bottom of the table despite consistency from KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal. As a result, that has led to a constant chopping and changing of the side. They can obtain a maximum of 12 more points from here which would take them to 16 in total. Can things finally go their way to seal a spot in the Playoffs?
