Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) have the daunting assignment of beating Mumbai Indians (MI) in an away match and stay alive in their bid to make it to the Play-offs of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Season 10.

Top 5 picks for MI Vs KXIP match

Rohit Sharma: The MI skipper will be keen to do away with any rustiness prior to the Play-offs, not to mention the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy. He is a key member for both the franchise and India teams and will be looking to come good.

Kieron Pollard: The return to runs of the big West Indian is something of a boost for the MI think tank as he can change matches on his own. A lean patch in the middle of IPL 10 has been overcome and Pollard will be a big threat on the small Wankhede ground.

Jasprit Bumrah: The young medium-pacer has come to terms with his skill and has been very effective indeed, especially towards the end of the innings. With KXIP seeking to attack, Bumrah will be a key bowler.

Glenn Maxwell: The Kings XI Punjab skipper still has a job at hand, with the side still in with a shout for a Play-off spot. After the win against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the Big Show must stop the big guns of MI.

Axar Patel: The left-arm spin bowling all-rounder has taken time to show his talent but showed his stuff in the match with Kolkata Knight Riders. His slow bowling could be critical against the strong MI batting.
