Winless in each of their last four outings, Rohit Sharma’s Team Mumbai will hope for a positive result in match 23 of the Indian T20 League 2022 when they take on Team Punjab at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium on Wednesday, April 13. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST.
Mumbai have made the worst possible start to the new Indian T20 League campaign. The team has struggled to cope with the intensity and despite playing four games, have failed to establish a match-winning order.
This has been mainly due to the fact that several of their first-team regulars are no longer with the team. This includes the likes of Krunal Pandya and Trent Boult.

Given the form Mumbai are in at the moment, it’s no surprise that the odds are against them for Wednesday’s encounter. Everything on paper, including Punjab’s recent record against Mumbai, is putting the Mayank Agarwal-led team in the driving seat.
If their batsmen tick, they can rightly beat Mumbai for the third time in four matches.
