IPL 2017: Mumbai Indians take on Kings XI Punjab

IPL 2017: Mumbai Indians take on Kings XI Punjab”

Teams: Mumbai Indians: Parthiv Patel (wicketkeeper), Jos Buttler, Nitish Rana, Rohit Sharma (captain), Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Harbhajan Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Lasith Malinga, Jasprit Bumrah.

Mumbai are off to their best start in IPL history with four wins in five matches and would hope to better that record considering Kings XI have lost all three of their most recent games.

Hashim Amla's brilliant century went in vain as Mumbai Indians staged a stunning batting display against the Kings XI Punjab on Thursday pulling off a stunning eight-wicket win in a high-scoring Indian Premier League match.

Manan Vohra's sublime 95 nearly papered over Kings XI's overseas players - Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, Eoin Morgan and Hashim Amla - scoring only 24 runs in the last match and it is this area that has been letting them down.

Earlier, Amla had seemingly guided Kings XI to a match-winning score with a fine century featuring eight fours and six maximums.

Mumbai Indians' chase can be accounted to how they batted, and not to the appreciably improved conditions they would have batted in, as was the case in the last two IPL games at this venue. He was out for 37 off 18 balls at 81-1. He astoundingly bagged off massive 26 runs within five balls, that too in Mitchell McClenaghan's bowling. This will be the final home game for Kings XI Punjab at Indore in this edition.

ACC extends deals with North Carolina sites after law change
The ACC's agreement to hold the game at the Charlotte venue, originally set to run through 2019, has been extended through 2020. Columbia, South Carolina, last hosted games in 1970, while Hartford, Connecticut, has not served as host since 1998.

The fall of Marsh brought in the in-form wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha (11), who chipped in to add 34 runs for the second wicket with Amla before missing Krunal Pandya's straight ball which crashed his leg stump. Buttler and Parthiv gave just the kind of start MI would have hoped for: getting to 82 runs in the powerplay overs.

Glenn Maxwell made merry with the well-set Amla alongside him.

Hashim Amla celebrates reaching his century against Mumbai.

The Mumbai top order was on-fire in pursuit with Parthiv Patel and England global Joss Buttler providing the early impetus before the former departed at 80-1 after just six overs having hit four fours and two sixes. Against Malinga alone, Amla smashed 51 runs in just 16 balls.

The IPL continues with Kolkata Knight Riders versus Gujarat Lions on Friday, live on Sky Sports 2 from 3pm.
