Preity zinta (@realpreityzinta) April 23, 201619.50 IST: Batting has been the weak link in Mumbai Indians’ armour. Apart from captain Rohit Sharma, none of their batsmen have been able to take the responsibility and that’s why the defending champions are languishing in the lower half of the IPL table. Mumbai have to put up a good show with the bat tonight against Kings XI Punjab, who already have the advantage of the toss. Good news for Punjab is that pacer Mitchell Johnson is back for them and will provide the missing venom to their bowling attack. 19.45 IST: Playing XIsKings XI Punjab: Murali Vijay, Manan Vohra, Shaun Marsh, David Miller, Glenn Maxwell, Nikhil Naik, Axar Patel, Mitchell Johnson, Pardeep Sahu, Mohit Sharma, Sandeep SharmaMumbai Indians: Rohit Sharma, Parthiv Patel, Ambati Rayudu, Krunal Pandya, Jos Buttler, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Tim Southee, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jasprit Bumrah advertisement19.35 IST: Quotes! David Miller: First time I have won the toss so pretty chuffed about that. Chasing teams have been very successful. We have had good success in the past while chasing. Two changes, Mitchell Johnson and Pardeep Sahu come in.Rohit Sharma: We know where we stand, wicket looks good as usual. High scoring ground. One side is short. We need to post a good total. We know we are going to be on the road for a while now. Same team. 19.30 IST: Toss! Kings XI Punjab opt to bowl against Mumbai Indians.

Preview: Struggling sides Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians will eye turnaround when they face off in an IPL match. (Full IPL Coverage)While Punjab are at the bottom of the table with two points from five games, having won only one, sixth-placed Mumbai have been a victim of their inconsistency, winning two out of six matches. Punjab come into the match after two successive losses against Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad. The David Miller-led side will aim to put aside their previous defeats and avoid a hat-trick of losses.Despite having match-winners like Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, David Miller and Murali Vijay in their ranks, Punjab have been inconsistent in their batting department. The main reason for their batting failure is the disappointing show from the mainstays – Miller and Maxwell. While South African Miller has scored 46 runs so far, Australian hard-hitter Maxwell has made a bare 39. They have hardly put up enough runs on the board for their bowlers to make an impact.In the bowling line-up, Mohit Sharma, Axar Patel, Sandeep Sharma will look to take a step ahead and put up a collective effort to stop the Mumbai batting powerhouse from exploding. Mumbai have struggled to hit any rhythm but showed signs of getting their act together while successfully chasing 171 against Bangalore. But they again faltered against Delhi Daredevils on Saturday. They left it too late while chasing 165.Mumbai’s batting has lacked fluency. Their opening act has been poor with only skipper Rohit Sharma showing skill and zeal to fight it out against adversity.Rohit has led from the front, scoring three half-centuries. But head coach Ricky Ponting would like to have his other batsmen offer more to the cause. The side’s batting has been too dependent on the skipper and the extra burden on his shoulders proved costly in most occasions this campaign.But today, it will be a fresh start for both the sides and Mumbai will look to get their third IPL title hopes back on track.
