Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul wins the toss and elects to field first.
Mumbai Indians set a 132-run target for Punjab Kings. Punjab Kings, looking to end their Chennai leg on a high after three consecutive defeats, opted to bowl against Mumbai Indians in Match 17 of IPL 2021. Punjab finally brought in leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi into the playing XI with another leggie Murugan Ashwin making way for him. Mumbai trusted their XI and have gone in unchanged! Rohit Sharma and Co. are also playing their last match at the Chepauk and will look to finish on a high. Punjab Kings, lying at the seventh spot in the points table, have their task cut out as they take on defending champions Mumbai Indians in Chennai. With three back-to-back defeats denting Punjab’s morale, it will be the right opportunity for Mumbai to bounce back to winnings ways after their defeat to Delhi Capitals in their previous game.
