Mumbai have been on a roll this season; three wins in four games; the last one being a washout against Vidarbha. Their last completed match resulted in a 173-run shellacking of the Railways as Pritwi Shaw (129) and Shreyas Iyer (144) swatted the bowlers with disdain to rack up 5-400 in 50 overs. Defending 401, Mumbai bowlers led by Dhawal Kulkarni (2-50) and Shams Mulani (3-26) never really let the Railways batsmen off the hook and eventually folded them for 227 in 42.4 overs.
Punjab’s last match was also a rain-affected dampener and they come into this game on the back of a 94-run loss at the hands of Maharashtra after they failed to chase down 282 and were bowled out for a meagre 187 in 40.3 overs.

Both Gitanesh Khera and Aditya Tare have had a lacklustre tournament thus far. You may opt for either of them in your Fantasy XI.
With Mumbai not boasting of the services of Pritwi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane in this match, it is prudent to opt for batsmen from Punjab. For Punjab, Shubhman Gill, Yuvraj Singh and Manan Vohra will be the ideal picks for your fantasy XI.
Mandeep Singh has had a good tournament with both bat and ball. He, along with Mumbai’s Shuvam Dube and Shams Mulani, who claimed three wickets in the previous game will be the ideal picks.
Manpreet Gony (5 wickets) and Mayank Markande (6 wickets) have been the spearheads of Punjab’s bowling this season. They along with the likes of Mumbai’s Dhawal Kulkarni (7 wickets) should be your ideal choice for the fantasy XI.
