Defending champions Mumbai will look to return to winning ways when they take on bottom-placed Punjab in their fifth match of the Indian T20 League 2021 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday, April 23.

The Rohit-Sharma-led side succumbed to defeat against Delhi following an inept batting performance and will look for redemption. The form of their famed middle-order will be a major concern for the five-time champions.

Mumbai are currently fourth in the Indian T20 League 2021 points table with four points, winning two and losing their other two matches.

Punjab, on the other hand, have lost three consecutive matches after a winning start. Apart from captain KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal, their batters have struggled in the ongoing edition of the tournament. Spearheaded by India pacer Mohammed Shami, their bowling department has also been below-par so far.

In Punjab vs Mumbai head-to-head record in the Indian T20 League, Rohit Sharma’s side has a clear edge as they have won 15 of the 26 matches played between these two sides.
