Mumbai Indians vs Northern Knights 6th CLT20 2014 Qualifier match: Northern Knights propel to 49/0 in 6 overs

Sep 16, 2014

It’s all looking bleak for the Mumbai Indians (MI). Northern Knights openers Kane Williamson and Anton Devcich are making it count for their side. They have already gone off to a great start. Spearhead of the MI pace attack, Lasith Malinga have been all over the place. In fact, all the bowlers have struggled to hit the correct line and length. The batsmen have utilsed the powerplay overs quite well. The required run rate is not that high so they are playing cautiously.

The Knights needed just 49 runs to confirm a berth in the main stage of the main Champions League Twenty20 (CLT20) tournament. But they will have to chase down a target of 133 runs in order to win this contest against MI. Malinga and Jasprit Bumrah started of with the proceedings for MI. Williamson and Devcich have come out to open the batting for the Knights. They have made a positive start to their innings. What MI need are nothing but quick wickets.
