IPL 2020 | Mumbai Indians beat Kings XI Punjab by 48 runs

Batting first Mumbai Indians made a challenging 191 for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs. It was KL Rahul who invited MI to bat after having won the toss.

It was Sheldon Cottrell who began with removing Quinton de Kock for a duck. Wicket-maiden and a fine start for Punjab. This was followed by MI skipper Rohit Sharma crossing the 5,000 run-mark at the IPL. Mohammed Shami was quick to trap the Mumbai skipper. However, Rohit went for a successful review and continues his stay in the crease.

Krishnappa Gowtham came with the breakthrough as Ishan Kishan’s struggle in the middle came to an end. He tried to play the slogsweep but hit it straight to Karun Nair at deep mid-wicket. Kieron Pollard then joined Rohit.

Rohit Sharma departed for a well-made 45-ball 70 as Glenn Maxwell and James Neesham perform a little tag-team effort near the ropes. The score was 129 for four wickets.

MI ended with 191 for four wickets with 25 runs from Krishnappa Gowtham’s last over and it was a bad call to ask a spinner the last over.

Kings XI was almost always struggling right from the start. At 121 runs they had lost six wickets and looked hopeless with still 71 runs to get from 18 balls. At 17.1 overs, Sarfaraz was out LBW for seven runs. In came Ravi Bishnoi, but he went back as quickly as he came. The bit of effort put in by Krishnappa Gowtham towards the end made no difference owing to the margin they lost by. Kings XI were 143 for eight wickets in 20 overs.
