The 17th game of the Indian T20 League between Punjab and Mumbai will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on 23rd April 2021.
The match will start at 7:30 PM IST. The live streaming will be available on the Hotstar app and website.
Punjab are looking for ways to get their campaign going, but their performances are letting them down. In the previous match against Hyderabad, it seemed that they were not able to find ways in which they could counter the threat of a slow surface. They will now meet Mumbai, who have won two matches on this surface already.
Last season, these two teams played two interesting matches, one of which was won by Punjab in the super over. This contest should be interesting to watch for the fans as it brings stars like KL Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami, Rohit Sharma in front of each other.
Mumbai does have an edge, having played on these surfaces and would know how to handle the slowness of the surface. They will start as favorites against underconfident Punjab.

Captaincy picks for PUN vs MUM
KL Rahul (PUN)
KL Rahul is someone who has a tremendous Indian T20 League record. His greatest strength is his ability to score frequently against quality opposition. The last time these two teams played against each other, Rahul scored a match-winning knock. His record against Mumbai in the competition history is quite good.
Rohit Sharma (MUM)
Rohit Sharma is due a big knock in this competition. He hasn’t got a huge fifty, something that looks imminent. In the previous match, he scored 45 runs and his innings was important. But, he also got out at the wrong time, and had he stayed on the wicket, Mumbai might have got a match-winning score.
