The 31st Match of the Indian Premier League(IPL) 2023, will be played between Mumbai Indians and Punjab Kings at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on 22nd April. So Mumbai Indians after losing their first 2 games now have won 3 back to back games and in the previous match they defeated Hyderabad by 14 runs as it was a good batting effort first from Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan as they provided a good start to Mumbai and then their trust on Cameron Green finally paid of as he scored unbeaten 64 runs innings and later on Tilak Verma played an attacking cameo of 37 runs in just 17 balls and to defend the target their Bowlers were brilliant and attacked like a unit and in that the hero was Arjun Tendulkar who nailed perfect yorkers as Mumbai Indians won the match comfortably in the end. On the other hand Punjab Kings are coming after losing from RCB as on boiling first restricted RCB to 174 runs, Harpreet Brar again was lucky enough as he picked up 2 wickets but other bowlers performed in clusters. In the second innings Prabhsimran was good as he scored 46 runs but from the other hand wickets kept failing in the end Jitesh Sharma was outstanding but there was no support from the other hand as Punjab Kings lost the match by 24 runs. Without their regular captain Shikhar Dhawan Punjab Kings batting is looking weak as wickets are failing in clusters. It's still not known if he is fully fit to play the upcoming match.

PITCH REPORT :
The Wankhede pitch in the previous match we saw good bounce and a good scoring match. This will be even more high scoring fest as the pitch has been good for the batting side but for spinners also it offered a turn. Due to the short dimensions and dew might come in as the ground is near Marine drive, team's prefer to chase.
