Mumbai overcome early setbacks to post winning total

The Kings XI Punjab had the Mumbai Indians on the mat in IPL 2020 tonight, grabbing three wickets inside the powerplay. But the defending champions displayed their character and depth in batting to score 176/6 in 20 overs, a total that Punjab will find it difficult to overhaul at the Dubai International Stadium tonight.

Electing to bat first, Mumbai slumped to 38 for three, before Quinton de Kock (53 runs off 43 balls) and Krunal Pandya (34 off 30) repaired the damage with a 58-run partnership. De Kock’s departure ahead of the slog overs seemed to be a huge setback, but a 57-run stand in 21 balls between Kieron Pollard and Nathan Coulter-Nile took the wind out of Punjab’s sails.

Mumbai’s vaunted attack should defend the total, and Punjab lacks the batting strength to spring a surprise.
