Match no. 31 of IPL 2023 will happen between Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Maharashtra. After a poor start, MI is finally coming into the groove as the 5 time champions have won 3 back to back matches in a row. Punjab Kings on the other hand lost their previous match against RCB and that too at their own home ground in Mohali.
The match between MI vs PBKS of IPL 2023 on 22 April will start at around 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time. Shikhar Dhawan’s absence from the Punjab team in the last couple of their matches have hurt them a lot. All eyes will be on Arjun Tendulkar once again as it seems that Mumbai Indians have found themselves yet another Yorker king in the form of Sachin Tendulkar’s son.

IPL 2023 MI vs PBKS (Match 31) Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai Pitch Report :
Wankhede pitch is helping spinners a lot in IPL 2023 and we are expecting something similar from this wicket in the match no. 31 between Mumbai Indians vs Punjab Kings. Piyush Chawla’s quality and experience will come in quite handy for the home team during this match and PBKS hopes will rely on Rahul Chahar in this game.
As its going to be a night match, so dew will play a major factor on this Wankhede wicket and it will be really hard for the spinners to grip the ball in the second part of the innings. Although this is a quick outfield but still we are expecting a 170-180 runs score in the first innings and chasing side will definitely get a huge advantage.
Both Mumbai and Punjab captains will look to bowl first during this match 31 of IPL 2023 as around 50% of this match will be decided by the toss itself. Mumbai Indians surely have a slight edge over Punjab Kings in this match because of the overall quality of their spin attack.
