Preview: Defending champions Mumbai Indians are going through tough times as they slipped to the seventh spot on the table after three back-to-back defeats since the start of the second half of IPL 2021.
Rohit Sharma will hope his side can arrest the slide on Tuesday when they face KL Rahul's Punjab Kings at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Mumbai's batting has been a big problem for them as the likes of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav are struggling while Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya have been inconsistent. They have eight points from 10 matches so it's not all over for the team. Mumbai have the reputation for making it to the playoffs with late streak of victories so they can still seal a spot in the top four.
Punjab have played two matches since the league's resumption. They lost a close game against Rajasthan but bounced back to win the next one against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
KL Rahul's side also has eight points to their name but they sit higher than Mumbai due to a better run-rate.
Punjab's problem area is their inconsistency despite boasting a good squad. They can't afford to slip up at this stage of the tournament with four games remaining.
