TOSS: Kings XI Punjab opt to bowl.

Oh, and remember it’s Punjab da puttar Yuvraj Singh vs Punjab today

Rohit Sharma & De Kock opens for MI, Ravi Ashwin to ball the first over.

I reckon this is the first time he’s opening bowling in this season.

Viljoen gets the Hitman

After a blistering knock Rohit departs. Viljoen bowls a quick delivery, Rohit tries to nudge it to leg side but misses and hits pads. He didn’t go for the review as his partner denies. Suryakumar Yadav comes in at 3. It’s 51/1 after 5.2 overs.

Oh wait that was clearly missing the leg stump. Ahhh! How much will that cost MI?

M. Ashwin traps Surya

He comes to bowl and straight away fires a quicker delivery as Surya tries to play across the line but doesn’t get a bat on that and gets plumb in front. Yuvraj comes to bat. It’s 62/2.

De Kock on fire!!!

11 over – 102/2

Shami overshadows De Kock

He was called for breaking this partnership and he has done exactly that. As he bowls to leg stump and De Kock shuffles across to whips and gets plumb in-front. He reviews immediately.

Pitching in-line, impact in-line and wickets hitting. It’s three reds and he’s gone. MI loses him and the review as well. De Kock goes after a fine knock of 60. Kieron Pollard comes in. It’s 120/3.

M. Ashwin tricks Yuvi

Yuvi wasn’t comfortable in playing shots and he tries to slog sweep to M. Ashwin and gets caught. Yuvi goes for 18. Hardik Pandya comes in. It’s 126/4

Ohh what-a-catch!!!

Catch it was the cry!! Pollard hits the ball in the air, for a long long time but Mayank Agarwal at long-on judges the catches perfectly. Tye strikes. Pollard gone for 7. Krunal Pandya comes in. It’s 146/5.

Cricketwallah

Marvellous catch by Mayank Agarwal. Took an eternity for the ball to come down and he never let it out of sight. Middle order collapse puts Mumbai in a spot. Score < 190 would be below par on this pitch and guven the position the team was in

Two Pandya brothers at strike, from here-on anything around 170/180 is possible

Viljoen gets KP

Krunal was hitting so well before that he hit 2 back-to-back boundaries but this time short of length does the trick and M. Ashwin takes an easy catch. Krunal goes for 10. It’s 162/6.

Hardik’s little cameo comes to an end as he holes out to deep mid-wicket. He goes for quick fire 31.

MI finishes 176/7

Krunal Pandya gets the Boss!

Gayle was playing a hell of a knock, as KP bowls a wide off-stump ball & Gayle goes for it trying to heive over mid-on didn’t get proper elevation as ball hits on the toe end of the bat and Other Pandya brother does the rest. Mayank Agarwal cones in. It’s 53/1

Equation says 92 required off 58 balls

Ohh hello! KP strikes again!

Mayank tries to thrust his bat but didn’t get proper connection and gets caught by the bowler. Mayank goes for 43. David Miller comes in. It’s 117/2

50 for KL Rahul

I bet it’s K for killer Rahul. It’s 151/2 after 15.5 overs.

23 runs needed from 22 balls

It’s a piece of cake for KXIP now

Kl Rahul & Miller makes an easy win for Punjab by 8 wickets.

Man of the match: Mayank Agarwal for his quick fire knock of 43 off just 21 balls.
