LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Kings XI Punjab vs Mumbai Indians – Match 22

This will also be the first time that Kings XI Punjab and Mumbai Indians clash at the Holkar Stadium. This will also be the last home game for KXIP in Indore, before they move to their primary home ground in Mohali. KXIP are coming off a narrow defeat by the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). It was only Manan Vohra, who’s 50-ball 95 kept Kings in hunt ultimately losing the tie by 5 runs. Much will depend upon the likes of  Hashim Amla, Glenn Maxwell and David Miller.

Mumbai Indians, on the flip-side, face no dilemma in terms of their team selection. Indian recruits like Nitish Rana, Krunal Pandya and Hardik Pandya have been performing out of their skins. Out of the international stars, only Kieron Pollard and Lastith Malinga have made sizable contributions to their wins so far. Rohit Sharma, Jos Buttler and Mitchell McClenaghan will be expected to step up with the tournament heading into crucial phase.
