IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, MI vs KXIP Match: Rampaging Mumbai face upbeat Punjab, hope to regain top spot - Firstcricket News, Firstpost 1

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Mumbai Indians vs Kings XI Punjab latest updates: Follow live updates on the 36th match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 between defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Preview: For a change, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) will go into a game with winning momentum in their stride as they gear up to face high-flying Mumbai Indians (MI) in Match 36 of IPL 2020 at Dubai International Stadium on Sunday.

KL Rahul-led side secured only their second victory in this season against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Thursday. Captain and Chris Gayle scored impressive half-centuries as KXIP chased down a target of 172 thanks to a last-ball six from Nicholas Pooran.

Gayle, who was playing his first match in this year’s tournament, announced himself with a bang so that’s the biggest positive for Punjab. But despite being in a very comfortable position, KXIP took the match till the final ball, and almost made a mess of the situation, like a few times they did already in this season.

There will be no room for errors for KXIP as they will be up against MI, who have been one of the best sides this season along with Delhi Capitals. Rohit Sharma’s side has won five matches on a trot, with 12 points to their name from eight matches.

Quinton de Kock is in sensational form with the bat while the bowlers have also delivered when it mattered. But Mumbai, as a side, do not depend on one particular player and that has been their USP. On Sunday, it will be interesting to see if the team management will look to rest some of their key players or go with the same winning combination.
