The 9th match of the 2019 IPL is going to be held at I S Bindra Stadium in Mohali where the home team Kings XI Punjab (KXIP)would host Mumbai Indians (MI). Read on to know the match details and other reports to help you decide on your fantasy cricket team and earn points.
Now the MI had a disappointing start against the Delhi Capitals but yesterday’s win against the Royal Challengers must have put a smile on their faces for sure. The umpires were not able to spot the no ball which was delivered by Lasith Malinga in the end and this has garnered a lot of discussion and controversy.
- Match: KXIP vs MI match 9
- Venue: I S Bindra Stadium, Mohali
- Date and Time: 30th March 2019, 16:00 local time (10:30 GMT)
On the other hand, the Kings have faced defeat in their last game against KKR at the Eden Gardens and must be desperate to win this one, especially at their home ground.
With the onset of summer in India one can only expect heat especially during the afternoon. The temperature will hover around 37-38 degree and might even enter the 40s. There is absolutely no chance of rain.
- Very hot
- No rains predicted
The pitch which initially worked wonders for the pacers but now has slowed down over the couple of years. It now favours the batsmen and getting 185 plus is easily achievable; even chasing this target is not going to be difficult. In fact, in the past couple of games, the chasing team has won more number of times at this Mohali pitch.

Suggested Selections for Fantasy Cricket Team
Chris Gayle is in an amazing form and will surely fetch you some fat points with his blitzkrieg batting. K L Rahul, although has not played to the best of his abilities, can be a very good pick as he performs very well under pressure. For all rounders, one can go for Krunal Pandya. Rohit Sharma has also performed well against the Kings. Lasith Malinga hardly ever disappoints, so he can be picked along with Bumrah. For keeping de Kock can be selected while for Captain and Vice Captain anyone between Gayle, Rohit Sharma or even Hardik Pandya can be selected.
Keep in mind your credit score and then based on the above points and your own knowledge pick your fantasy cricket team and earn points.
