Can A Joeseph do it again?

MI is coming after a win against SRH. They were able to defend a small total of 136 against Sun Risers Hyderabad, Who are very strong at home. Alzari Joesph had a dream debut on that day. He registered best ever figures in IPL with a six fer. He would have created in doubts in other franchises as well.  Opening Partnership is concerning for them, None of their couldn’t give enough starts for them. It’s their lower middle order always gave them enough support their bowling.

Can Kings XI be more Aggressive?

Though Kings XI need not worry now. They got plenty of areas to improve. They can be more aggressive while chasing a total. If they bat in similar way they might give an impression that they are inferior about their middle and lower middle order . Sam  Curran is definitely contributing in one or another to team. He seems to be a competent batsmen to bat u the order. He scored crucial 5 runs in just 3 balls when team need 11 off 6 balls. Miller is few more performances away to lose his spot. But with not a potent player to back , he can be calm.
