On a flat deck Kings XI Punjab kept losing wickets, while playing Mumbai Indians in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. All the batsmen got starts but just couldn’t get going. It was left to George Bailey, the skipper to steady the innings during the middle overs of the innings. Bailey made a good fist of it by playing shots against Krishmar Santokie. Bailey also took on Jasprit Burmah the medium pacer by essaying a boundary.

 

However, at the right time, Santokie took the wicket of Akshar Patel, the left-handed batsman and that too with a full toss. Rishi Dhawan then started his innings with a boundary. It is up to him to support Bailey so that they can get a good score on the board. Actually, Mumbai batsmen will fancy chasing down a target anything less then 160. Earlier, Shreyas Gopal, the leg-spinner troubled Punjab’s batsmen with his brand of leg-spinners and googly and took wickets. It has to be remembered that Punjab are already through to the playoffs.

 

Earlier, Praveen Kumar began proceedings for Punjab. The first delivery was wide and cut through point for a four by Sehwag. The second delivery was struck for a six over long-off on the front-foot. Krishmar Santokie shared the new ball with Praveen.
