Guwahati: Match 36 of the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) sees defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) take on the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) in Dubai at 7:30 PM (IST)
MI are clicking perfectly as a unit, and could move to the top of the IPL 2020 points table with a win in this game. They are on the back of a facile chase against the Kolkata Knight Riders, where excellent performances from Quinton de Kock and Rahul Chahar took them to a 8-wicket win.
KXIP, on the other hand, finally managed to register their second win in IPL 2020 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, with Chris Gayle’s return and KL Rahul’s continued form taking them across the line despite a few nervy moments towards the end of the run-chase. Despite the win, they are rooted to the bottom of the points table, and need a win against one of the favourites to keep their IPL 2020 campaign alive.
