It’s struggling MI vs laggards KXIP today
Even as they struggle to find the winning formula, laggards Kings XI Punjab will still fancy their chances when they host Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League cricket here on Monday.
Mumbai Indians have so far had a mixed bag having won two games against Kolkata Knight Riders rpt Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore while losing four.
On the other hand, KXIP, whose performance in the tournament so far has been pedestrian, have managed to notch up just one win from five outings and are placed at the bottom of the points table among the eight teams.
The Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai side suffered defeats against Rising Pune Supergiants, Gujarat Lions, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Daredevils.
In their last match played at Delhi on Saturday, the Mumbai outfit lost by 10 runs chasing a victory target of 165.
Rohit (65) and Krunal Pandya (36) were unfortunate to get run out as Mumbai could only manage 154/7.
MI initially struggled to get their team combination right but they did come good with a convincing chase of 170- plus score against Virat Kohli’s RCB.
