Mumbai Indians (MI) have reached a score of 118 for three after 15 overs against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014. Rohit Sharma is batting on 35 and Corey Anderson is on 33. Mumbai are chasing a 169-run target in Match 22 of IPL 7. Ben Dunk and Ambati Rayudu were the first two batsmen dismissed. Both fell to Sandeep Sharma. CM Gautam was then dismissed by Rishi Dhawan.

 

Rishi Dhawan bowled a length delivery on the stumps and Gautam tried to reverse-flick the ball over the short third-man fielder. But he missed and got out LBW for 33 off 29 deliveries with two fours and two sixes. Dhawan then bowled a short and wide delivery and Rohit did not wait any more invitation as he flayed it over the third-man region for a six. Corey Anderson made it two sixes in the over as he played a lofted drive over long-on.

 

Anderson then smashed one off Akshar over his head for a four. The next ball was driven over wide long-on for a six. The next two deliveries were struck for two fours. The first over the bowler again and the second through deep square-leg. Rohit then played a lofted flick-sweep over the short fine-leg region for a four.
