MI vs KXIP Live Match: The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai © BCCI
Mumbai Indians will be desperate for a win against Kings XI Punjab to keep their play-off hopes alive when they square-off in a crucial Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Wankhede stadium. Just when Mumbai's dream of making it to the final four was on the verge of getting shattered, the Rohit Sharma-led brigade came up with a spirited show to register a hat-trick of wins before faltering against Rajasthan Royals in their previous game. Mumbai have to win both their remaining two matches to keep their chances alive for advancing to the play-offs. With 10 points, the three-time champions are placed at the sixth spot in the IPL points table while their opponents are a spot ahead with 12 points in their kitty. (Live Scorecard)

Mumbai will once again rely on opener Suryakumar Yadav, who has been consistent with the bat, amassing 473 runs from 12 innings. The other opener Evin Lewis also got back his touch in the last match, hitting a 42-ball 60. However, Mumbai's middle order failed miserably including skipper Rohit. Barring his match-winning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rohit has failed to live up to the expectations this season. The Pandya brothers – Hardik and Krunal — will also need to dish out something special if they are to stand any chance of making it to the final four.

This has been a dynamic season so far and fortunes have turned up and down. A team which dominated the initial half of the tournament is caught in shambles now. Yes, Punjab have won only one out of their last six games and are in a tricky situation. Apart from KL Rahul who has been in top form, the batting is extremely vulnerable. The misfiring middle order is a big concern. The thrashing they received at the hands of Bangalore has deflated their morale. Ravichandran Ashwin needs to find the mojo back in his captaincy. This is the apt time to lift themselves up and prove their mettle. On the other hand, Mumbai are still hanging in there. The upcoming two games are a must-win for them and they also need other results to go in their favour. The Pandya brothers have been in good form and if they continue to stand tall, it will augur well for the hosts. Rohit Sharma needs to rise to the occasion as well. Will Mumbai script a comeback in their own den? Or will Punjab bolster their chances to qualify for the playoffs? The Wankhede will surely be up and buzzing.
